We've been hearing a lot from MYXph.com
visitors about their insights on the invasion of K-Pop artists and it's good that we can read and learn from all your comments and views regarding the issue!!! So today, let's bring heat to this rainy day because we bring you once again another release of K-Pop vs. OPM
2NE1 vs. Callalily? Super Junior vs. Slapshock? Bigbang vs. Kamikazee? Is this really what's happening right now?
With their extra-ordinary, high sense of fashion, one might initially think that this is one of those emerging K-Pop groups but they are all proud Filipinos with inter-Asian races. From interviewing Pinoy Rock bands on our past articles, let's now listen to the side of a group with K-Pop influences.
We had the chance to talk to all-boy music group DOWN TO MARS and they said, "While some people dispute the coming in of KPOP and Western music, ang tingin naman namin dyan ay kasama yan sa evolution na nagaganap."
"As artists, we wanted to recreate that experience not by copying but getting inspirations because in the bottom line music is still the language of our soul that can cross the boundaries of cultures and places, so to speak."
"OPM has been very vibrant and continue to come-up with diverse music. An evolution is also taking place in OPM music by finding way to adopt the transition of internet generation to Philippine culture. Music is a cultural expression then trends and modernity influence culture kaya OPM should never be in a nutshell.. it has to open to the world."
What do you guys think? Do you agree with Down To Mars? Has K-pop affected our own OPM industry? Share your insights through our comment box below! We want to hear more from you!
