With 2NE1 as our #1 on the MYX
Daily Top Ten and Callalily as the #2, the war is on 'cause this is definitely K-Pop vs. OPM
A lot of Filipinos are going crazy over Korean pop groups nowadays and one strong proof is their invasion on our MYX charts. But the question is, is it really a threat to our own ORIGINAL FILIPINO MUSIC?
Frontman KEAN CIPRIANO of Callalily, a strong contender for the MYX Daily Top Ten #2 spot, has an answer for this.
"Is it KEAN-Pop? No, just kidding."
"Hindi naman, hindi naman. I don't think sagabal. Hindi, hindi. It's good music. Koreans are good and Pop is always good. It's a good combination. Siguro kaya lang nasasabi lang na ganun kasi malakas sila eh, malakas talaga sila."
"The thing, eto yun eh, is pinapakinggan sila ng mga Pinoy yung K-pop. Pero kung sana lang na magandang mangyari is habang nakikinig sila ng K-Pop, cause we get our research from other countries, defintelity. Pero sana kahit sobrang suporta sila sa K-Pop, sana maging aware sila na Pinoy bands bands are good also, Pinoy artists are good. We have quality music so alam mo yun, hindi siya sagabal pero sana lang suportahan ng mas mabuti ng Pinoy yung mga quality na yun."
"We love K-Pop. I like K-Pop"
