i just like the instrumentals better across the board and the use of multiple vocalists, which western music doesn't really take advantage of. also >>3733415
it tends to be a lot brighter/happy in general. the cute girls are a big plus, of course.
i was really into carly rae jepsen before i found kpop for similar reasons (minus the multiple vocalists, obviously)
i can go either way on lyrics. i couldn't even tell you any of the lyrics to my favorite english music 2bh. i just tune it all out.>>3733421
gave some of each album a listen. there's some stuff that's alright, but most of it just isn't my kind of thing at all
