Ugh, this is a biased thread. No offense though. The only thing you band haters/non-appreciaters/un-enthusiast should do is stop buying/listening to them. Speech is free but what you have to know here is you're conquering a very very huge mob. Not that I'm threatening you in speaking your opinion but you should also know that they, the GARBAGE CRAPS you're talking about, have fans that take inspirations from them. The GARBAGE CRAPS you're talking about just want to entertain people and help them get away once in a while out of this cruel stuck up, unfair, stupid world, also aside from that I'd rather be listening to these GARBAGE CRAPS you're talking about than having them/seeing them turn into some bad guys snatching things from people in the alleys (yeah, if you can't get what I mean, your loss, not mine.)

Haha, I agree with you. You must've watched the abominations made by Johnny's Entertainment [KAT-TUN, NEWS, Arashi, etc.] and Hello!Project [Morning Musume, Berryz Koubou, etc.] As much as I love Kamenashi Kazuya from KAT-TUN, I despise their music. It's so....scratchy to the ears. And I have no idea why Momosu is so popular in Japan while all they wear are bright, sequined costumes and churn crappy bubblegum pop songs.

But I'm keeping my hands down. Because as much as I despise boy band music in general, somehow one of them made an impact to me [musicwise, not their faces].

The only boy band so far in Asia that I think has real talent is Korean R&B and hip hop group Big Bang. It's true their members aren't exactly that drop dead gorgeous as other boybands have, but hey, what matters is their music.

And so far, their music videos are the only that actually make sense [meaning they have a story at least] or aren't gratingly annoying to the eyes and ears.

Here are some of the vids to illustrate my point.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=duu3FReQ9HA Haru Haru MV
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsh0u8F-aa4 Dirty Cash MV
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XpQkYHFKSNU Sunset Glow MV
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QamplVE49M Lies MV

It's okay if you don't listen to their music while watching them, just watch for the MV's sake. I understand that not all people appreciate their music, each to their own. I'm just trying to show that not all boy band MVs are about on the same level as others.

P.S. I'm not trying to convert anyone to the boy/girlband wagon, I'm just trying to show that not all of them are craptastic and are a crime to the music world in general.


hrmmm...aren't we being biased here?

how is she being biased? well, by saying that JE boybands (if you can comprehend, she's aiming at the majority boybands) are CRAP then goes on telling that Big Bang IS the only one with real talent, isn't that being biased my dear? look it up in the dictionary if you can't understand.

HAHA!Uhmm....I kinda like some boybands but I don't really Idolize them...and it's true..they're funny when they make those silly moves...and I've seen some MV that's so not nice...coz' the MV emphasis is more on their moves...japanese,korean,and taiwanese has very much in common when it comes to dance steps...like the peace sign,raising their hand with a finger point...I mean why don't they try the dance steps of "you got served"? ...But they have great movies and dramas though...hahah...

She's not telling us that Big Bang is the only one with talent. She says she thinks they are the only one with bearable talent - which, judging by the key word, is an opinion, my dear.

THIS. And in any case you've noticed, all of us are merely stating our opinions here. Don't like, don't read. Simple as that. Nobody's passing them off as facts.

NO OFFENSE BUT.....


I've noticed that in Japan, Korea and Taiwan (and other asian countries), they still dig boybands or some girl groups. What's up with that?! I don't know but I think that's so gay. Okay boyband lovers don't kill me. I've watched this from akira to shuji video and i was totally disgusted, (what's up with that dance moves?!)

Backstreet boys and the spice girls should just go to those countries.

For me, they're not making music. Those are crap. Really. All they do is act cute and hot. If trying to look cute and hot will get you an album, then probably a lot of kids from myspace and friendster are now recording artists

What's your opinion 'bout it? If you don't agree with me, then fine. Just shut up, sleep and continue fantasizing. I don't butt in with your forums with titles "news is hot. bla bla group is hot. cute girls groups are the best singers everrrrr" so don't fuss and flood this forum with your "wth, what are you blind? they're so hot and sings very well" responses.


ok? ok.


BWHAHHA.
i getwhat you mean about the
akira to shuji thing.
i mean their "dancing" kinda sucked but
i dont think all boybands are bad [i think all girl bands are].
for example theres Big Bang && 2pm.
they're different from all those girly boy bands.
:D well i dunno thats just what i think.

PWHAHAHA. i still
can't stop laughing at what you
said about akira to shuji

Many artists lipsync, no matter where on this planet.. -.-
Not just boy bands and girl groups...
Also, I think it's better that there is something different out there. It's good to have change, something out of the ordinary and unexpected...
Even though I am more of a jrock/visual kei person, (which I'm assuming most you will find even more shocking seeing as most of the guys look/dress like chicks, wear makeup, etc.), I think some of the boy bands and girl groups are extremely talented!
I mean what matters is that they are pleasing/entertaining a crowd.. That's their job? >.>

It's okay to dislike them but wouldn't you guys rather discuss bands that you LIKE? Instead of "raising your hands" for bands you think are overrated or whatever?..
