Okay story time! I work in a factory(making car parts, which is funny because it's a Japanese company but I get teased for foreign music). And our machines are being moved to Kentucky et cetera et cetera, skip to the K-pop part I get it, I get it. So in my building there are only two females on night. My supervisor and I. I get teased for liking K-pop, due to the language barrier and the "style and appearance" of the idols. Mostly the favorite adjective for them to use is "gay". But after awhile it didn't bother me too much. Until one coworker kept calling me stupid for listening to something that I couldn't possibly understand (give or take a few key words that English subs have cleared up for me). So one day I was talking to my supervisor and I was hoping she'd understand. So I said, "I honestly don't understand why I get picked on so much. The music. I listen to has wonderful rhythms, meaning(help with subs), and beautiful voices to accompany instrumental pieces. Why do I get picked on so much just because this music is in a different language. I don't get picked on for listening to German music because I took classes, but for music that I honestly did have any idea what they were saying. I just listen for emotion, feel the harmony, flow with the rhythm. To me that was translation enough." And she smiles and said, "You're right. Music really is an international language. You can feel and understand anyone's voice by the strong emotion that is flowing through." I was so happy that day. So content. πŸ€—πŸ˜…πŸ™ƒπŸ™‚πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŒπŸ˜‹
