basically, kpop = drama. sure, the music is slightly/absolutely better than jpop. and the clothes are way awesomer. and don't even get me started about the dancing (aces, man). but sometimes you just can't handle how seriously they take themselves in that country.

then one day you wake up and see this:

and you just wish that all your kpop groups were this uncomplicated. this drama-less. this fun. or that they'd last TEN YEARS TOGETHER in the industry without trying to kill their group/their friendships/their contracts/each other. 

and this is why no matter how shiny and brilliant kpop is, i still keep on coming back to these five. forever.

and also, because nino is such a bitch and i adore him to tiny little snarky bits. until the end of time, basically.

:) This is exactly how I felt when I was pretty far into the k-pop fandom.. but I guess I couldn't stand to take it anymore so I left 8D

But I found that I like J-pop music better for some reason haha

cause jpop is more positive and happy and fun! and they don't care if they still sound like they're in the 70's.

while kpop is too focused on image. but the music is trendier. i guess both sides have their ups and downs.

but ARASHI, man. this shit's for life.

haha yes THIS!! I love it XD

agreed that kpop is way more focused on image. I also think I was lured over to the asian music fandom because it was different than US music... which I really don't like 95% of the time. And then I found that K-pop really tries to mimick western music, and style, etc. I just don't care for it anymore.. I saw the dark side and I wanted out haha

But yeah... Arashi... while they support what I like, I keep getting the "When you're older you'll realize that they're JUST a boy band" from my parents (mostly my dad haha)... WELL..I don't think my parents realize that I'm still going to be listening to their music when I'm 30... at least that's my plan. I hope they're still around when I'm 30.

I'm sure they will be. I mean, SMAP's still around more or less.

but ARASHI is obviously better than SMAP in everything so i'm gonna bet your dad that they'll be superstars till his grandkids have grandkids. or something.

awwww ayisse.

this post was actually written for you. i know you were hit really hard by everything that's been happening re: 2pm (but notice how i never mention their name even once in this post?) and i just wanted to kind of cheer you up. a bit. maybe.

(i couldn't take the bridge of troublemaker. it was the most beautiful part of the song. and the apple. T______T)

I cried, with Troublemaker. But the whole time with 2PM, it was just hard to think of it all with emotions eh. People were angry and getting crazy and crying and it takes so much... I have no energy just reading the reactions!!

grabe idk. I'll just take things simply as what they are whatever haha hayyyy :/

yeah the whole 2pm thing was getting ridiculous. i just stopped reading anything 2pm-related when they said jay was never coming back. :(

Yeah, me too. :( I didn't want to read about incredibly out of character 2PM. Seriously, Taecyon being disrespectful and doesn't care for fans? Wow. No, thanks.
