    I agree, but the others are not far behind at all (especially Perfume <3).

    I have absolutely no idea what Meari just linked. That is not the kind of thing we normally listen to or link.

    What do you want to know about , also here is a video of Hyuna being a wimp.

    ^^^ Someone will have to explain that to me as well. I have no idea what just happened in that. xD The red eyes were...disconcerting though.

    Hahahaha, that was hilarious! To be fair though, flying things are terrifying, even if they are just chickens.

    wait how are chickens scary, I have had a flock attack me and its nothing more than an annoying peck. To which I respond with a steel toed boot.

    I'm assuming the singers do a lot of televison?

    I'm going to need to start watching anime also, maby it will give me insight into skellington's mind Which I would love to just pick apart!

    Nope! This thread is for real Japanese music (As in real people in the MV)
    That kind of thing belongs in the Anime Chat Thread

    Oh yes, a huge amount
    And because Hyuna is a wimp!

    From the same show, getting her to touch something inside a box she doesn't know what is

    Well, big flying things tend to scare people. Some of us are very twitchy and cowardly.

    Yeah, they do, most of it are...I think they call them variety shows...where they're basically just talk shows, but they have activities and challenges and stuff in them, my favorite of which (and one of the few I've actually watched since I can only watch them at night) is Intimate Note with SNSD on it.

    I believe there is also an anime chat thread, so you could probably learn more from there than here, since anime and Asian music do not necessarily always overlap.

    Psh, I'm a wimp too, Hyuna and I would get along just fine.

    Why? It's Asian music, I don't see why it matters if the MV is animated or not..
    I'm looking for one with K-on, but I don't know what to search for ._ .

    In the meantime have a cute video:

    Sounds interesting, I guess I'll try to mix in some more asian music in and watch a show or two, with you kind people's direction of course.

    Oh spend 2 days with me, I'll fix you... or laugh at you while you lie on the ground not wanting to play with my collection "animals" ( i take random bones I find and reconstruct weird things with them. its fun!

    There's so many different shows so it's hard to recomend just one, but the one that I think most people here have watched and everyone seems to love is SNSDs episode of Intimate note like Deca mentioned

    Here it is

    As for music, I think you already know SNSD so here is some T-ARA

    I don't think I've actually seen any interviews or shows with Perfume in them. 0.o I had no idea what they were like until that video. I think I just love them more now. xD

    Meh, all of what I know about these things come from everyone else (in particular, Ana, Meari, BHD, Snow) so I probably don't have any good recommendations for you.

    ---------- Post added 2013-02-03 at 12:14 AM ----------

    You think Sexy Love is their worst song?! I actually thought it was sort of catchy. Personally, I like T-ara's ballads the best though, lots of people don't seem to like those though. xD
