Hey guys, I busted wanted to say that when it comes to countries, I love Korea but not just for Kpop. Kpop is just one of the many things I love about Korea. I also love their food and their culture all together. That's why I want to move there someday. Even though America is known as a place for everyone, I feel like it's not. Even though I have these views, I'm still American so I still wish that it does its best to improve and to get better. The reason I say this is because I've heard a lot of people say that kpop makes you selfish or self-centered. I've heard that about all international music actually. So I wanted to get the record straight. JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE LIKES A CERTAIN TYPE OF MUSIC AND WANTS TO GO TO THAT COUNTRY DOESN'T MEAN THAT THEY JUST WANNA FOLLOW AROUND A CELEBRITY. I'm honestly tired of people saying that and I want it to stop. Most people who move to South Korea (from where I'm from at least) still know they're American and still embrace that. Will the run around the streets of Seoul yelling "I'M AMERICAN" at the top of their lungs? No. But when asked they will say they are American and they will still like to visit. So leave people alone. If someone says they like kpop, don't think they are being selfish or self-centered. If a person says they want move to South Korea, don't think they hate your country.
I never really realized just how prejudice people really are until I got into kpop. There wad a little bit of prejudice when I was first into other kinds of music (latin/Cuban/Mexican), but when I started listening to kpop people were just obnoxious. I just mark it up to their own ignorance, and if they choose to stay that way I guess there is nothing I can do about it. I choose to continue learning about other cultures.
Exactly. Well said. ^^
