Music is essential ('nuff said). Music helps us express our feelings. If you feel like listening to pop, rock, acoustic, house music, name it, you can do so with a click of a button. Turn on your music player. Nah, just search that song you are longing to hear on YouTube (music videos are a bonus, hee!) and let the music help you scream your heart out!

Nowadays, there are a lot of bands coming out locally and internationally. With that, us teenagers have an opportunity to choose from a variety of genres that these bands are offering.

OPM has gone a long way, and as time goes by, the local music scene is improving more and more. Though, it's not just the OPM that is emerging. There are a lot of Asian music most specifically K-POP, J-POP, and J-ROCK that are captivating our hearts with their charm and music!

But really, what makes OPM different from other Asian music? And vice versa. So I asked some OPM, K-POP, J-POP, AND J-ROCK fans on their thoughts about this.

Team OPM:

  • OPM is more interesting to hear, because you can really feel their heart and passion to their songs.
  • Lyrics of their songs have deeper meaning on it.
  • "I prefer listening to it, because I grew up with this kind of music."
  • OPM is very much relatable.  They get inspirations from what's happening around, thus it makes people captivated by their music.

Personal thought:

OPM is very versatile. They are not just sticking on one main genre but they are trying to play with different genres to maybe cope up with our generation. Another thing, their thoughts are all true. I must say that listening to OPM can definitely give you the feels!

Team K-POP, J-POP, J-ROCK:

  • Singers'  appearances are more eye-catching and more fashionable.
  • The beats are lively.
  • The music itself is very catchy and upbeat!

Personal thought:

These groups got people hooked through their fashion sense. No doubt about it! Their quirky hairstyles, very colorful outfits, accessories, and did I mention their kawaii-ness?  About their music, I find it fun and youthful. It really suits our generation that's why teenagers are drowning in fandoms.

Just a simple note: It's not bad to idolize foreign bands and singers. But as a citizen of our country, we should still, at the same time patronize and help uplift our local music.
