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."What do you guys think?
