Discussion in 'K-POP' started by ItsMeMario, Oct 21, 2017.
I'm very curious if you guys would support this or if you guys are against it?
Well I mean.. Kpop stands for Korean pop. I wouldn't mind it but if we have too many people that aren't Korean it kinda loses the purpose.
i really dont care even if someone came from Peru.
I don’t know what I’d think if there was a Eurasian member. I know there’s a Russian member in Oh My Jewel but.. haven’t really given it much thought
I prefer it when the members are from Eastern Asia though ^^
But if a non korean becomes succesful in Korea then theyre doing something good, in other cases they'll disappear soon anyway.
I think it's okay if they go the same way as other Trainees! Like Lisa. everybody loves her!
True but A LOT of kpop members are not korean!
If they are really talented race wouldn't be much of a problem and if they're found good looking by Koreans then they'd make it for sure. It's like killing three birds with one stone for the company cause
3. International Attention
They'd get it all.
i mean chinese, japanese, and thai idols are out there
i prefer it to stay within ea or sea because east asians generally don't get to shine in non east asian markets
it'd be nice to see malaysian, indonesian, fillipino, vietnamese, cambodian, etc kpop idols
Turkey is in West Asia and therefore to 99.9 percent Asia.
The only city that is located/counted in/to Eurasia, is Istanbul. Which is the main reason Istanbul is said to be in Eurasia.
Even there, it's only a small part of Istanbul that is in Europe, the part that was originally Greece once.
+Edit: only people that live in Istanbul, are said to be Eurasian, because they are usually mixed race. Means Greek/Turkish, Bulgarian/Turkish, German/Turkish etc. If you want to know the exact description, search it up. Pure blooded Turks, you will notice, look in fact more Asian (as in monolids or facial features), than most Southern or Northern Asians. Especially Turks with Mongolian, Turkmen roots.
i know. It's starting to happen more because I think companies would want support from other countries. Like Blackpink is very popular in Thailand because of Lisa and Twice is very popular in Taiwan because of Tzuyu
Turkish people don't get to shine either. A lot of other countries in West Asia too!
At the end of the day it's talent that gets you places so personally, I don't mind as long as he or she is talented &no one really needs to be all too worried as companies (well-established ones) would take in those who are talented so if anything people would love them and show them support as they're talented and trying to make it in foreign market. Also, it gives hope for other people.
SOMEONE FINALLY UNDERSTANDS!! xD
There are many Turks/West Asians (people of Arab, Persian descent) in Korea and vice versa, actually.
Even in the entertainment industry.
My close friend who lives near Busan, often talks to me about foreigners and different cultures and when I once asked her about that case she herself said there were many.
Not to forget the close bond South Koreans and Turks have.
Same goes to Japan and Turkey, but it's about Korea here right now so...
Also, I was on vacation in Turkey last summer and there were many, many South Koreans/East Asians. So if that works well, why shouldn't it work well the other way around, too? Just the thing about the 'idol' industry is, that you have to possess talent and looks, too. Race alone won't get you anywhere. Not even if oyu were Korean.
If you talk solely about looks:
Seeing that most Turks are mixed with different races nowadays.
My aunt is a pure blooded Turk (with Mongolian roots even) and you can definitely see the Asian genes, wheras my cousin is half Russian and half Turkish and that's obvious, too. So if you do not possess the Asian genes at least a bit, and look more Caucasian/European/Australian etc, then well... most mixed idols have it hard these days.
Also, the only reason we haven't seen other races is because companies haven't found individuals that are talented enough. For instance, Lisa was the only one out of tens and thousands of people to have passed the YG auditions in Thailand.
No, there is nothing to understand.
It's just that people are not quite educated nowadays.
Just had a heated duscussion with a few tight minded Americans last week who were talking about Middle Easterners (nothing racist though, just simple topics) and wouldn't understand when someone said that they are ASIAN. PURE, WEST ASIANS. That there is NOT ONLY EAST AND SOUTH EAST ASIA, but 4 DAMN CARDINAL POINTS we have. Sum people be thinking there is a eighth continent called Middle East. Shake my head.
Oh wow you know a lot about this! I have Mongolian genes too, as far as I Know. My parents come from north/east turkey where the mongolians were as well!
It so sad. Not all Asians have monolids. like what ...
