Hi there, I'm a casual listener of Jpop. I'm more of a hardcore Kpop fan but I do listen to Jpop since I like the music. Recently I was watching AKB48 variety show clips with English subtitles and I can't help but notice the visuals. Most of the girls would never have debuted in Kpop, by Korean standards they would be considered ugly. I mean they're pretty I'm just saying from Kpop standards. As a half Korean my countries standards for visuals are sky high when it comes to idols but in Jpop that's not the case. I don't know much about Japan so I wanted to ask. Does Jpop have low visual standards? Do they not care as much as Kpop does? Please don't get offended by my question. I'm not saying they are ugly, they are very pretty. I'm just judging by Kpop standards.
