like i keep seeing user mentioned about how Japan is the 2nd biggest music industry after West like how ?????
i dont remember or even know any japanese musician that make a big impact and remake on the world like BTS and PSY ? and being super popular & viral like Blackpink ?
if anything it should be KPOP after West. Not even Bollywood (in term of music tho)
and tbh i only know Perfume and AKB48 lmao
so how can Japan have bigger music industry than Korea ?
maybe i live in an environment where Japanese music is a niche but like....is Japan bigger than Kpop in the west ? or UK or wherever ? and definitely not SEA because as an Asian, i can guarantee you KPOP is totally dominating SEA since 2011
i might sound stupid and ignorant but i have zero idea how can Japan is the 2nd biggest music industry after USA
