安室奈美恵の韓国公演のときに衝撃を受けて慌てパクって出来上がったのが今のK-popの始まりだけど
日本に上陸したときには少し流行りとズレてたんだろうな
PerfumeとかAKBとかももクロとかが売れるんだもん
I believe that K-Pop's roots can be traced back to when Namie Amuro left such a huge impression when she performed in Korea, and everyone just tried to copy her. But when they started coming to Japan, their style was a bit different already from what was the trend here where the likes of Perfume, AKB, and MomoClo are the ones that are popular.

Their girl groups were battered by AKB, finished off by MomoClo, and then E-girls just took all of their fans away.

They're under Japanese record labels, produced by Japanese producers, their songs made by Japanese composers, and dances choreographed by the Japanese too, but they're called K-Pop.

KARAと少女時代は吉本芸人たちが一斉に大好きアピールし出して酷かったなw
業務命令でお仕事だったとはいえ節操がなさすぎる
The way all the Yoshimoto talents praised KARA and Girls Generation at one point was horrible.
It was probably a business order and that was their job, but they all just lacked ethics.

I think that the male groups are still popular.
It might be impossible for the girl groups though.
I still see them on TV but I don't feel anything anymore towards them.
It seems that there are still some radio stations though that are still pushing for them.

The group members just don't seem to have any individualism.
The K-pop boom might have been able to continue if they had at least one  artistwho was like Namie Amuro.

I don't see anything wrong with K-Pop leaving Japan while other Asian countries are still welcoming them. They'll probably go away from those countries too in 2 years' time. Then maybe they'll go to Africa next.

I actually liked them before they came to Japan.

For KARA, "Pretty Girl" is the best.

一方の日本のグループはまず来ないから遠くのモノって感じになってるみたいね
頻繁に来てくれるとことまず来ないとこじゃそういう差が出ても仕方が無いかと
But K-Pop is far more popular in Southeast Asia compared to J-Pop. The K-Pop singers and groups all go there, perform concerts, appear on TV, and promote their stuff a lot so the local citizens there think that these people can easily be reached. There's no helping it if you compare one that comes a lot from the other that doesn't come at all.

Country boundaries are irrelevant when it comes to songs and dramas. The good ones are still good, while the bad ones are still bad. There are times when their talents sing better songs than AKB.

I think people started hating them because they just grew too much in number. They also kept proclaiming how Korea is superior to Japan.

  1. J-pop, or even j-music are not popular cause of their record company and japan strict policy when it comes to copyrights.

    You can get many korean music and variety shows online but the same thing cannot be said for japanese music/variety shows. Only recently than we have some j-artist on youtube and even than, not many of their stuff are uploaded on their accounts. Fans who uploaded their stuff will get a strike from youtube.

    Ease a bit on the copyrights law and upload your stuff on youtube to get a wider audience. E-girls mv hit 10m views recently and one ok rock has many of it's mv hits 10m easy.

    It may not seems many compared to k-pop mv but still, they are gaining fans outside japan.

  3. lots of rational comments and individualistic opinions, was interesting. kpop, jpop, pop is pop no matter where, if u cant make the sales, it doesnt matter how good or bad it is, its a total product and like someone said country borders are irrelevant.

  4. I can never get into KPOP because of its obsessive, cliquish, obnoxious and cult-like fanbases. It just creeps me out. I'm glad their popularity is declining, same can be said in my country.

  5. I used to like Kpop around 2006 to 2009, then I stop because too many people are obsessing over it.What hit me the most is too many fanwars going on everywhere and I got sick of it all.

  6. No but seriously, were any K-pop groups other than SJJD and Kara (and BoA/Tohoshinki but they were a bit before the Hallyu bubble in Japan so I don't count them) ever just a little popular among the Japanese general public? Every other K-Pop group dropped a single or two then went back to Korea after they didn't make as much money as they wanted to.

    Even though K-pop's popularity may be on the decline in Japan, this seems to be mostly talking from the general public's POV, rather than the fanbases/niche market for K-pop in Japan.
    I doubt K-pop companies care that much about establishing themselves and popularizing themselves for the general public. Rather, they only care about money so what's more important for them is to build a decent-sized fanbase in Japan to sell CDs because unlike in Korea (where digital-sales based on public support do matter for awards, recognition, or whatever) that's not essential for them in Japan where physical is where the money's at. They'll get much more money from stable fanbases with fans that will buy 5+ singles each, then from ringtone download sales.

    Plus, this is 2ch, where it's users (consisting mostly of men aged between 25-44 based on quantcast statistics) hardly match up to K-pop's target demographic of tween and teen girls. I can't speak for most of Japan, but for the family I have living there that are still in middle and high school, K-pop's popularity doesn't seem to be declining, although the dramas seem to be more popular.

    Are there any interesting One OK Rock or Spitz thread? How about anime/manga threads any plans of translating those?

  8. J-pop was popular in my country but that was about two decades ago. My first taste of J-pop was seeing a SPEED MV. But even up until now it's not very common for J-music acts to come over here...K-pop was just overzealous in trying to "conquer" while J-music is laidback and not particularly interested in spreading. Both strategies have their pros and cons.

  9. Ellegarden (on a long hiatus) still attract new fans whenever they stumbled upon their mvs on youtube. That's the power of real music.

  10. "I don't care if they remain active in Japan, but I got disgusted when I heard some say, "We became popular when we did that disaster benefit concert, so I hope there will be another disaster""

    You're absolutely right
