Jay Chou Wants "Gangnam Style" Craze To End


JpopAsia Article:

Jay Chou has called upon Chinese artists to stop doing the "Gangnam Style" dance, stating that Chinese music is better.

The singer spoke to reports before the Golden Horse Awards ceremony in Beijing, urging Chinese artists to unite and stay ahead of Korean wave.

"All artists should unite. Don't 'Gangnam Style' anymore," he said.

To bring Chinese music back into the spotlight in China, Jay Chou also urged Chinese people to listen to more Chinese music and support the country's artists. He sees the Hallyu wave as becoming too powerful in the country because Korean artists are getting more attention than Chinese ones.

Despite his call for a national focus on Chinese music, some people believe he is being hypocritical. The singer recently dyed his hair blonde, which many people point out is also a trend for Korean artists.

"Blonde hair is European and American, right? Plus in the MV 'Fine Day' I dyed my hair. I've never had blonde hair since I debuted," the singer said in defense of his new hair.



CNA article:

Taiwan singer Jay Chou urged Mandarin music stars to "unite" and stay ahead of the Korean wave during an awards ceremony in Beijing on Sunday, reported Taiwan media.

"All artistes should unite and don't 'Gangnam Style' anymore," said Chou.

Chou described "Gangnam Style" as being quite humorous, but said Mandarin music is cooler.

He added that Mandarin music fans should support Mandarin music, and not let the Korean wave get too strong.

Interestingly, Chou sported a head of blonde hair when he made his statement, a look that resembled those sported by Korean pop stars.

However, Chou dismissed allegation that he had copied their look, and said that he dyed his hair blonde to match his killer abs.

While nobody can say for sure whether K-pop inspired his new look, it is clear that he does have killer abs.

The superstar had showed off his well-defined eight pack in recent promotional photos taken on the set of his new music video.

Chou revealed that he now weighed only 62kg and is in top physical shape.

"I used to pant when I sing 'Nunchucks' (a high-energy song), now I find it much easier," said Chou.

Oh, come on, the absence of an international Mandarin pop wave is not because stars like Jay Chou aren't making good shit.

he sounds pressed.
ninjacandy 6th-Dec-2012 08:33 pm (UTC)
Doesn't he have some young girls to seduce or something?

As salty as he is, he shouldn't worry. The Hallyu Wave has yet to materialize anything close to the hopes that the record labels or fans had, and with the Hallyu Wave's dwindling popularity in Japan (and China from what I've heard) he can sleep calmly at night.

The only saving grace of that film. And even then, I couldn't finish it.

caribgirl98 6th-Dec-2012 08:58 pm (UTC)
What does blond hair have to do with Kpop?

People have been doing that for years...so only Kpop artist can do it in Asia?
sobaek 6th-Dec-2012 10:02 pm (UTC)
Japan will have something to say about that.

Oh really?

You a right damn fool.

I never liked him.
yasmine2009 6th-Dec-2012 09:26 pm (UTC)
I don't understand why anyone would be salty over Gangnam Style. It's only a viral hit. When Psy gets back to back hits then be salty. (Not saying that it wont/can't happen for Psy)
soramai 6th-Dec-2012 09:27 pm (UTC)
lol
eishastan 6th-Dec-2012 09:28 pm (UTC)
He sounds really stupid, especially with that comment about his hair matching his abs, what a tool.
ashiva 6th-Dec-2012 09:51 pm (UTC)
Can all these nationalistic fools in all Asian countries just shut up?
starsxsonatas 6th-Dec-2012 09:53 pm (UTC)
mte, it's getting ridiculous.
toshi830 6th-Dec-2012 10:05 pm (UTC)
maybe if you made more songs like an jing or shan hu hai we'd care again jay but till then calm your tits

but gangnam craze needs to end so I don't have to defriend people on fb

i've heard that so many times, can't say I'm surprised, especially with how exo-m were treated at their first appereance - but I kinda hoped Jay Chou would be classy unlike some artists.. I honestly don't care for much of his newer music, though mine mine was good, i looooooove his older albums and that made me really appreciate chinese music. meh jay chou..
sobaek 6th-Dec-2012 10:21 pm (UTC)
Considering Jay Chou wrote a song for Super Junior M you'd think he'd, idk, not say stuff like that so easily.
hellicoptajuuce 6th-Dec-2012 10:13 pm (UTC)

lee_chikin 6th-Dec-2012 10:23 pm (UTC)
