>>
>>101823329
You're literally braindead, J-pop is sounding pretty different now than in the 00's. Go listen to Yoasobi or Yonezu Kenshi.

>Why is k pop popular and cool
It isn't.
>j pop is seen as disgusting weeb trash
Because obnoxious weebs ruined it.

>>101823329
A lot of music genres haven't evolved but still get respect
>>
>>101823399
Are you seriously saying k pop isn't popular
>>
Jpop is too different from western pop and also tainted by weebs. That being said, Kpop isn't exactly held in the highest regards either
>>
>>101823134
how are j pop and k pop even considered genres
what's wrong with them is they're a cult of personality and people are so unfamiliar with what the fuck the music is that they reduce these things to the country it's from
>>
>>101823498
Jpop has kind of a distinct style tbf

J pop is super unique and different from the usual pop that plays in north American so its considered a different genre
>>

K-pop is based on fanboys and fangirls worshipping without shame their idols.
J-pop is strongly influenced by Denpa, the main goal of the genre is to be weird, repetitive, and for otakus. Thus both are viewed as niche genres that only attract specific people.

J-pop was used in Japan originally to denote a popular style invented in the '90s by producers like Tetsuya Komuro. Before then the generic term for popular music in Japan was kayoukyoku. The term stuck probably because it's so memorable, and it's not very useful in distinguishing between Shiina Ringo and AKB48, but it isn't the creation of outsiders.

We usually associate K-pop with a much more unified musical style than J-pop because it tends to refer specifically to the popular idols and the large agencies that represent them.

>J-pop is strongly influenced by Denpa
Denpa didn't exist when the term 'J-pop' came into existence, and much of J-pop is in no way influenced by it.

>>101823199
debatable

>>101825745
No.

>>101823134
kpop is not cool lmao
legions of twittards liking something doesn't mean it's universally loved
>>
Kpop is frowned upon by almost all, excluding its rabid fanbase. Jpop makes people think of kingdom hearts, which makes it better by default.

korean culture is japanese culture sans soul
it's too americanized, so it's excruciatingly bland and dull, but since it's produced by asians, it's extremely proficient and high-polish
>>
I have no problem with j-pop or k-pop as long as it's shibuya-kei
>>
>>101826374
not universally, but its definitely more popular than jpop ever was in the west.

k-pop basically slavishly looks out for what might be popular and then pursues it and manufactures it (even down to sculpting faces probably) like they do machinery, microchips and cars.
j-pop (the part of it that's idol based, rather than just their traditional artists) although basically still pandering, is more like a school machine where they 'graduate' at the end, either into other media jobs or leaving it, and they still seem more 'human' (less surgery, more personality between members).
The traditional j-'pop' acts that aren't idol are generally just traditional music acts, and also tend to bring things back from old genres more, so you will hear some influences and parts that sound 50s/60s/70s/80s/90s in some songs that are made recently in those. Though those aren't really 'j-pop' I guess, and just music.
