K-Pop Vs. OPM: CIRCA, Not Against K-Pop But Wants A Fair Share Of Opportunities!



With 2NE1 as our #1 on the MYX Daily Top Ten and Kamikazee as the #2, the war is on 'cause this is definitely K-Pop vs. OPM!

This week, Pinoy independent female-fronted band CIRCA garnered the 18th spot on the PINOY MYX Countdown with their video "Huling Pag-ibig" and the band's lovely and amiable vocalist Em Tolentino shared to MYXph.com her perspective on the invasion of K-Pop artists, "For OPM bands like us, yes I would have to say na the introduction and influence of these sort of bands/genres to the local community is one of the major reasons why the OPM band scene is taking a backseat."

"Sino ba naman kami to compete with groups powered by flawless doll-like faces, ironed-out and curled up hair and glamorous outfits? Haha! Their whole package is a far cry from how OPM bands showcase themselves," she shared.

But according to her, she herself likes the upbeat and catchy songs of some K-Pop groups, "I would like to clear out though that I am (we are) not against these type of music/groups. I honestly like some of them and often dance and sing along with some of their upbeat songs. Hehe. I guess what I and most of the local musicians are disappointed about is how the publicÆs standards in terms of music and talent are slowly being twisted and changed by this foreign pop culture. I hope the public and the media will realize soon na all we want is a fair share of the limelight and opportunities to prove ourselves."

    I love KPOP more than anything in music. But I also appreciate OPM because it's the country's genre of music. What I noticed in OPM is that it lacks something and most of the songs are all about love which is boring and it's not catchy. In KPOP, there is inspirational, fierce, flirty, love, excitement, and most of all, it's very catchy. Nakakasawa na kasi ung mga kanta sa OPM puro love song nakakasawa unlike KPOP paiba-iba ung style ng music. Ay oo nga pala, kaya pala may translation ang KPOP so
