What Other Asian Pops Do You Listen To?

Kpop is amazing but there are tons of other Asian pops that are just as good!

I grew up listening to mando pop and recently rediscovered a lot of new artist I had missed out while focusing on Kpop! Mando pop music style is slightly different than K-pop. The lyrics and music composition is more calm and poetic. The lyrics is usually inspired from personal experience.
These are some of my favorites:

Bii, Andrew Chan, Ian Chen and Dino Lee - Epochal Times

Hebe Tian - Little Happiness

Harlem Yu - Notch

JJ Lin - Twilight

Diana Wang - Home

I'd love listen to your favorite mando pops!

Here goes the second part of my playlist ^^ If you havent seen the first part of this playlist you can check it out >>here<< If you want to see more of the awesome playlists from this challenge and other challenges you can check them out >>here<< 20. Landy Wen - Fly With Me The title track from a current Taiwanese drama "Murphy's law of Love" which I might add I am loving every single minute of, I reccomend it to anyone, It's so awesome, a bit like this song is, I am in love with this song, Check it out, you won't be dissapointed ^^ 21. Ayumi Hamasaki - Last Minute I Love Ayumi Hamasaki so much!!! I wasn't expecting the point in this song where the electric guitars kick in, but I still really enjoyed it :) This MV also has one of the coolest uses of lighting I have ever seen, just watch it you'll see what I mean ^^ 22. Da Mouth - Swag (Warning lotta booty...) My favorite Taiwanese group ^^ First I would like to apologise for the amount of... booty shaking in this MV, if you can get past that it's a pretty awesome song! Plus the stylistic use of the color pop against a black and white background is so cool!!! 23. Andrew Tan - Imperative (Feat. Bii) I found this song on iTunes thanks to @jiggzy19 who introduced me to Bii, I love this song so much, you guys are really missing out if you haven't heard Bii or Andrew Tan before. 24. Weibird Wei - Mask Ok so when I first watched this MV I was a little confused, but after watching it a few times I came to this understanding: All the different people you see the main girl with, are all meant to represent a different "Mask" or persona that he uses to portray himself as perfect infront of the girl he likes, at the end of the MV, he finally decides to take off the "Masks" and let her know who he really is... I really like this song, and am currently wondering why it is not on my iPod... (I don't know why but this guy reminds me of a cross between Wu Yi Fan and Eric Nam XD) 25. Hebe Tien - Insignificance Well this MV certainly qualifies as artistic, something about this song is almost entrancing... Or maybe it's just the fact I think she's really pretty XD Sort of a strange song, but I still really enjoy it :) 26. Jay Chou - Rhythm of the Rain Not gonna lie guys, got a little bit teary during this song... All I'm going to say is I really love this song, and this MV is really sweet :) 27. Hari Won - Hương Đêm Bay Xa And now I am going to introduce you to a few awesome V-Pop (Vietnamese Pop) songs 3 to be exact XD I love this song, definitely one of my favorite V-Pop songs ^^ Thankyou @jiggzy19 for showing me this :) 28. MIN from ST. 319 - Y.Ê.U (EDM Version) This song is so cool! I really enjoy everything about this, not sure what else to say other than the fact I love her purple hair :D I hope you like it :) 29. MIN from St. 319 - Shine Your Light (Feat. Justatee) This song came out 3 days ago, and I fell in love with it the moment I heard it, Please tell me I'm not the only one who loves this ^^ 30. Wang Leehom - Cracked Heart Well this is my final song, I could have done many many more, but unfortunately time is a factor, and it's getting rather late... Anyway I hope you enjoy this song, It's another one of those songs I find so entrancing to listen to, I find myself playing it over and over while lost in thought XD Oh and I like his shoes... I need a pair of those lol Well that is it for my Non-Kpop playlists I will have the new challenge posted soon^^ Let me know what you thought of these songs :) Credit to the owners of these music videos!!! @jiggzy19
If I had to live without K-Pop, Playlist... Part 1
Okay so I probably had a slightly unfair advantage with this one, while yes K-Pop is the bulk of what I listen to, I also have a fair selection of J-Pop, Mando-Pop, C-Pop, and V-Pop ect. that I love listening to :) Here is but a taste of some of the songs I love, outside of K-Pop :D 1. Ayumi Hamasaki - Marrionette Queen Ayu!!! The live version is the only version fully available on YouTube, but I'll include a link to where you can watch the full MV, this girl is so incredible considering she is deaf in one ear! You can watch the whole MV right >>here<< if you wish to ^^ 2. Yun Duo - My LouLan Which basically means "My Northern Kingdom" or "My China" I love this song so much, and her voice is so incredible, plus I adore the aesthetic of this music video, simple yet classy ^^ 3. Xu Liang - Mr. Rainbow (Feat. Shiga Lin) Do not ask me why I like this song, don't judge, simply listen XD So I know its weird, and really makes absolutely no sense, but if you can get past that it's actually a pretty cool song... I feel rather vulnerable sharing this song lol I do think this would possibly work as a great Skittles advert :P 4. Đông Nhi - Vì Ai Vì Anh Vietnam's take on Twilight XD, not really, but in my personal opinion a better movie could have been made from this MV lol I adore this song, so funky \(^o^)/ 5. Coke Lee - Let Me Love You So I'll start by saying this guy possibly has the coolest name in existence lol But seriously this is such a cool song and the MV is really sweet, bit of a slow jam, but there is nothing wrong with that! 6. Alan - Ashite e no Sanka (The song title means "A Hymn For Tomorrow") Love this song so much, the MV is a little bit strange, but I still think it's cool ^^ 7. [Alexandros] - Wataridori Loosely translates to "Migratory Birds" and the MV is about one of two best friends moving away.. kind of sad, but it's a really great song either way :) 8. Sekai No Owari - Death Disco So I love every single thing about this ^^ This group is kind of goofy and wacky but I love that :D That water falling in the background of their stage, in the shape of question marks is so cool ^^ Fun Fact - the leader of this band Fukase is Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's boyfriend 9. Kumi Koda - Dance in the Rain Another fantastic song... unfortunately the full version isn't available on YouTube, but you can still watch it if you click this link right >>here<< I promise it's worth it ^^ 10. Leehom Wang - Dream Life Okay so he's clearly not much of a dancer, but give him a break, this song is so fun and upbeat ^^ 11. G.E.M - Long Distance Don't cry... well it's okay if you do cause I did, I'm pretty sure this song is about long distance relationships 12. Hirose Satoshi "Jimmy" Obsession - "FLASHBACK" J-Rock! I Love it, what can I say XD 13. Perfume - 575 (Haiku) I never expected to hear these girls rap, I love them, and I am so hooked on this song ^^ 14. 365Daband - ANH SỢ MẤT EM More V-Pop greatness, upbeat song, the MV is a little bit sad, but overall a fantastic song :) 15. Namie Amuro - Anything So yes this is sung in English, but she is still Japanese so it still counts XD and it's a beautiful song with beautiful lyrics :D 16. Fujita Maiko - Soredemo Watashiwa This girl is like the queen of Anime themes XD this song is actually from a game though, how awesome is that ^^ 17. JJ Lin - Beautiful (Feat. G.E.M) I love collaborations, especially good ones, and this one is beautiful :P 18. Kimberley Chen - Good Girl (Feat. Xiao Jie) I love everything about this, nuff said XD 19. Misia - Deepness Turn the volume up, cause it makes it sound epic ^^ Okay I love this song, but seriously what is up with the whole turban look XD I'm talking about the whole "Yes I just showered and put my hair up in a towel, but it's a fancy sparkly towel" look she has going on lol, I still love it though XD I was going to do 20 songs but it seems it won't let me add anymore tabs :'( Look forward to further parts of my playlist later ^^ I have soooo many songs I want to share so I don't know how many parts I'll be doing just yet XD Credit to the owners of these videos
My Asian Pop Playlist (minus the K-pop) (jiggzy19) part 2/2!!!!!
Hi!!! Ok so this is the second half of my "Asian Pop Playlist" if you haven't seen the first part you can check it out here....if you want to! ^^ Alright lets get started!!! GJ - Want to Say This song is from the Taiwanese drama "Murphy's Law of Love." I totally recommend this to all drama fans. I normally only watch K-dramas, but this one has been so refreshing! I'm enjoying it so freakin much!!! You can watch it HD and subbed on DramaCool Bii - I'm Still Missing You As I have mentioned in my previous card, I totally love this guys voice!!! <3 Isaac 365 - LỖI ĐỊNH MỆNH (Ngày Nảy Ngày Nay OST) I might have a slight obsession with V-Pop, Isaac is one of the reasons why lol :P His voice in this song is totally DAE to the BAK!!! Will 365 - Sexy Lady One of the other reasons I love V-Pop is this guy, this song is so FUN!!! I recommend it for all your dance parties \(^O^)/ (a.k.a me in the garage with Matty XD @MattK95 !) MIN from ST.319 - Lost (Feat. MR.A) Yes this is more V-Pop, I love it okay... No judging ^-^ This song is totally catchy, I had to beg @MattK95 to not use this on his playlist, so that I could use it, thanks for not using it Matty *\(^-^)/* <3... why was I begging... I found this song first... (O_O#) Della Wu - Palm (Warrior Lan Ling OST) LOVE this!!! Does anyone want to walk in wherever the hell it is that she is walking, wearing that pink dress thingy with cherry blossoms raining down around you??? \(0.0) [Alexandros] - Famous Day I am a fan of these guys :D They have a completely unique sound, and the encouraging messages they use in their lyrics sometimes!!! Da Mouth - Funky (Feat. Pauline Lan) FUNKY~~~! I don't know if you know this or not, but rollerskating is actually not a simple task... (I'm not talking about rollerblading here) So shout out to the girl in this for making it look so easy and awesome! The older lady in this seems a little bit like the Asian Madonna XD Still a great song though^^ I added the dance version incase anyone wants to learn it, cause it's actually awesome, and not as easy as it looks... Yes, I have tried it :3 Da Mouth - Loser Despite what you might be thinking this was actually filmed this year... They just wanted to make it look like it was from way back when lol Hello legwarmers!!! lol. actually my Mom was wearing a pair when she first met my Dad, she was doing the dishes, cute right?! XD I feel I should also mention that their new album is called "Back to the Future" which is the reason both this song and "Funky" have such an older feel to them :) I still completely love it though ^^ Isaac - Mr. Right This MV just came out yesterday, and because you can never have enough Isaac in your life, I thought I'd share it... You can tell by now I'm a fangirl over him can't you... anyway... this song makes me want to put glitter on speakers, and dance around. Pretty simple dance, or at least it sort of has an "I'm too cool to waste a lot of energy on this" feel to it, but I still havent mastered it yet... I can assure you that I will though ^^ Hey Matty I know you are jealous that I got to add this to my playlist... you should have waited for it to come out lol... in your face! (Sisterly love XD) but seriously sucked in :P Credit to the owners of all these MVs and Photos. (I DO NOT own any of these MVs or photos!) Thanks for reading and listening Bye Bye Chu~ XOXO

YOUTUBE HISTORY CHALLENGE
Okay, so @SharayahTodd tagged me in this and I filled it out already but I'm finally posting it so here you go Vinglers. This card can refer to any of my top 15 bias cards. (male, female) (The female list will be up soon, I'm just really lazy. haha.) RULES: Go to your Youtube history. Find the last five music videos you watched. Starting from the most recent it goes as follows: 1. How you met your bias: 2. What your first big fight was about: 3. The song that keeps you together: 4. The song you walk down the aisle to: 5. Describes your marriage/love life: 1. How you met your bias: FEMM (Far East Mention Mannequins) - Fxxk Boyz Get Money My bias noticed that I was an independent woman that didn't take no shit. Making money and not looking for love and they decided they wanted someone like me by their side. So the chase began. 2. What your first big fight was about: Luhan (鹿晗) - Inner Force Well this is probably really accurate video wise, lol. I consider myself on the Dark Side of the force (because of my somewhat questionable morals and the fact that I'm bipolar and sometimes have problems controlling my anger), but I prefer to straddle the middle while my bias most likely prefers the Light Side. I'm such a dork for this explanation tbh, lol. 3. The song that keeps you together: BIGSTAR (빅스타) - 일단달려 (Run&Run) Apparently we are big fans of partying and having a good time. Never a dull night in our home. 4. The song you walk down the aisle to: FEMM (Far East Mention Mannequins) - Wannabe Tbh, this seems like the type of thing I would choose in the first place. It's dedicated to the fangirls because they want to be me and marry their bias as well. 5. Describes your marriage/love life: FEMM (Far East Mention Mannequins) - Astroboy (ft. Honey-B & W-Trouble) Haha, the song tells it all. They satisfy my appetite. ;3 [P.S. I've updated my vingle tag list, if you'd like to be removed please let me know.]
Kpop Intro
So...this is *hella* late, but about a month ago, @kpopandkimchi suggested that we do intro cards, since it had been so long since we had. I was going to, then got distracted with kpop things. Better late than never? :D How did you get into Kpop? I used to play a LOT of League of Legends (I haven't played in a month or so...too busy with WoW Legion!). Well, I ended up coming across that atrocity up there. It made me want to listen to the original. So, I looked it up and really enjoyed the song. Shortly after that, it was getting close to the release of a very special Foxy Lady, Ahri. Since she was based off of Korean myth and was made to celebrate the opening of the Korean servers, I decided to listen to a bunch of random kpop to prepare. I don't even remember what I listened to, aside from a random Korean radio station I found online. BUT, what *really* drew me into kpop was Osu. I had downloaded the kpop pack just because. That's where I found my first bias, and I didn't even know it at the time: G-Dragon. Heartbreaker just drew me in so hard. I think it's *still* one of my most played songs on there. :P Who are your biases? (Can you name just ONE ultimate bias?!) 5hinee is my bias group. I like some other bands too, but they're the only one where I love *all* of the members and I will support 100%, no matter what. If any of the other bands have a comeback that interferes with SHINee *coughMonsta Xcough*, then they just have to wait a little for my love. T_T No, I cannot name just ONE UB. T_T I used to be able to. Then I ran into my first bias wrecker and just accepted my fate. In NCTcord, we used My Anime Harem to make kpop harems. My main husband is Taemin. Then my other husband is Taeyong. I did an "honorable mention" for the last two pictures in this section for my two newest biases. JJ Lin had a really big part in getting me to like Lay. I *love* JJ Lin and I watched a duet they did, then a clip of an interview where he was talking about Lay and he just made it so easy to stan him. Not to mention those dimples! :heart_eyes: Real quick bonus videos that I was talking about above. T_T Anything else fun and interesting~^^ Hrm...I don't think that there's anything else fun or interesting. But thank y'all for making it this far with me! :D If you have any questions or just wanna chat, then drop a comment! <3
