JPop & KPop Secrets

So we found some funny, yet true fan secrets of JPop and KPop and thought we’d share with you all. Why? Because we either fully or partially agree with these. Plus they’re funny. Enjoy.

Note: We DID NOT do these, these were posted on the J-Rock and K-Pop Secret communites on LJ.

I still can’t get over TOP and the Jimmy Fallon. That is just too classic for words. And that last one of the J-Rock musicians, really? None of my guy friends, even the Japanese musicians do that with their friends. Fail.

So do you agree??

Apparently a majority of older women answered this pole. With that said, some of them should feel like pedo’s with some of those choices (i.e. Yamada Ryosuke). And how hyde lost to Jaejoong I will never understand, hyde is by far the better looking one, although I’m also prone to say that TOP looks better than all of them, but that’s a personal opinion and not based on physical looks alone. How Hotaka beat out any of the Big Bang, DBSK, GLAY members is beyond my me too. Well it goes to show that Japanese women there have odd taste. At least some they got it right with INORAN, you can never go wrong with him, although he should have been number one, he totally beats out Hotaka.

I do give props to DBSK and Arashi for having most if not all, it’s members in this ranking.
