I'm going to give you this article from Yonhap regarding China's ban on various Korean stuff:

Yonhap's News focus: S. Korean culture feels tightening pinch as China's punishment for missile shield continues

Just to let you know, China has also escalate their "unofficial" ban on Korean stuff beyond K-pop. I think you might want to read this:

Korean-made cosmetics fail Chinese test

China bans imports of 19 Korean cosmetics

China ups THAAD retaliation against Korean products

THAAD dispute spills over into classical music industry, concerts canceled

Have you been watching the Presidential transition of Donald Trump and been watching Trump's antagonism against Mainland China? Now I'm afraid China may end up banning Taiwanese dramas, Taiwanese celebrities, and even Hollywood film because of this:

China lodges complaint over Trump-Taiwan call

Beijing 'seriously concerned' after Trump questions 'one China' policy

China lodges protest after Trump call with Taiwan president

Trump's phone call with Taiwan president risks China's wrath

Donald Trump’s Message Sparks Anger in China

Trump and China on collision course

If Trump continue to antagonize Mainland China, it'll be Hollywood and American pop culture that could face ban in Mainland China, after seeing how China started to ban Korean stuff after the deployment of THADD. I'm starting to worry and adding the possibilities that Hollywood films along with Taiwanese dramas and celebrities could face Mainland Chinese ban because of Trump's antagonism and Taiwan feeling defiant thanks to Trump.

So if you're music label company are selling music in China, expect those profit to go down the drain thanks to Trump.

And here's the video that talked about it:

Still think China not a big market for Japan, have a look at this:

Japanese Hit ‘Your Name’ Wins China Release

Japan’s ‘Your Name’ Poised to Win China Box Office Weekend

Animated teen flick ‘your name.’ scores lucrative debut in China

Now I think that the Japanese film industry should pander to China like Hollywood and Bollywood are doing now. If you want to know why the sudden about face regarding Japanese pop culture, have a look at this:

China rejects Korean pop culture, welcomes Japanese animation amid row over THAAD

Jun Ji-hyun replaced by Chinese actress after Hallyu ban order

Communist Party thinks Hallyu promotes ‘soft, weak men’

So you see everything got more complicated and also very strange.

I'm in the music industry


Then what make you qualified to judge on the Japan not pandering to China when film industry in other part of the world does it? You maybe in the music industry, but movie/films are a different category and also you never really answer the question why Hollywood, South Korea, Bollywood pander to China but not Japan.

"Scholastically accepted" means usable in scholastic publication (as in a doctorate dissertation). "Professionally accepted" means used as a primary source for market research.


Then what do you call these:

Credible as in professionally and scholastically accepted.


Well how do you distinguished "professional" and how do you distinguished "scholastically accepted"? Of all the sources I used on that thread about why Japan doesn't pander to China like the same way Hollywood does it, the sources I used are all credible along with observation and trend I've seen regarding the Asian market.

Funny you say "Scholastically accepted", so do you acknowledge that K-pop is more well-known in the US then Japanese music/artists? I asked you this because you question my sources I used when I talked about Japan not pandering to China. So I wanted to know if you accept the sources about K-pop being more popular and well-known in the US then Japanese one.

Most of the news about K-pop being more popular and well-known in the US comes from social news (although Billboard has made K-pop a big deal), but the social news help K-pop become more well-known and popular in the US. So if you think that "social news" aren't credible then are you saying K-pop is not well-known in the US (K-pop popularity spread in the US because of social news like you mention)?
mdo7 Nov 2, 2016 6:46 PM
And when did I say "racist" or "white privilege?" I only mentioned social news sites aren't credible sources.


My point is that if you don't trust social news. Then how do you know which is popular or not and how do you know which is the truth.

You were the one that said social news aren't credible source so I decided to play with your logic and ask you about K-pop and compare it to your favorite musicians/artists from Japan.
mdo7 Nov 2, 2016 9:34 AM
you said:

Social news is biased and opinion-centric.


Funny you say that. How can you tell if that news is bias or not? I notice on your MAL profile that you have J-rock bands like Porno Graffitti, and Asian Kung-Fu Generation listed. Let me ask you a question: What if I told you that K-pop is more well-known and more high profile in the US then J-rock or J-pop? Then do you accuse the US media and K-pop fans of being bias and not being open-minded to other Asian pop act?

If you think I'm making up stuff about K-pop being more popular in the US then any of the J-rock group you listed, have a look:

How Korean Boy Band BTS Broke a U.S. K-pop Chart Record – Without Any Songs In English

BTS' 'Wings' Sets New U.S. Record for Highest-Charting, Best-Selling K-Pop Album

Time magazine article-K-pop's next act: Here’s Why CL Is the Future of K-Pop in America

Grammy-The K-Pop Explosion

U.S. iTunes Store Creates a K-Pop Genre and Features EXO on Main Music Page

iheartradio's article-BTS, SHINee, Twice & More Rock KCON 2016 Los Angeles













Are you going to accuse Billboard and mainstream US media of bias for giving K-pop and Korean artists the Hollywood treatment while your favorite J-rock don't get the same attention from the same mainstream media? Are you going to accuse the media of being racist to Japanese artists and give "white privilege" to Korean/K-pop artists? Are you going to accuse the K-pop fandom of being racist and bias too?

You still need to back up your statements with facts as in URL links that back up your statements. When I'm posting something, I always back it up with credible evidence.

If you can't back up your statements with any URL links, then I can't take you seriously. I can't find you credible if you don't back up your statements with facts and credible sources.

That's the first rule of argument, you always have to back up your statements with facts.
mdo7 Nov 1, 2016 11:17 AM
Hey, your post is not making a lot of sense to me. Do you know about K-pop popularity in China? Are you aware of Hollywood pandering to China?
