Yeah it has a cool Indie/underground scene, I like the Peppertones and a lot of great house music is being made there rn. In regards to the Kpop industry though, I don't really see much deviation minus a few people. I feel like for those artists, they made their way in Japan and have an established fanbase there but it sucks b/c some of these people paved the way.

Compared to most SM artists, it seems so judging by how Lee Soo Man really respects/admires his work ethic/such so he has more input in his creative vision. If I'm being honest, I want him to be like Sunmi and eventually leave SM, to pursue his solo career (But I think he renewed his contract for a few years ?) but eventually I think that'll be the best decision.

idk about Shinhwa and if they have dedicated Japanese fans but it seems like TVXQ and BoA are more respected in Japan for their skills as performers and vocalists whereas in Korea they're more like senior idols with some catchy dance moves.

Seo Taji is still performing in big stadiums in Korea and is pretty well respected it seems but the other artists I mentioned don't seem to be holding any concerts currently.

Yeah even though he gets more creative freedom than others SM still has to have their stamp all over it to make sure people know it's part of the SM brand except for maybe their sub-label artists like Giantpink or Woolim artists. For him to completely have everything match his creative vision leaving SM would be best

IA with everything you said! P.S Always a pleasure talking with you about these things btw!

"For him to completely have everything match his creative vision leaving SM would be best." (Insert Prayers Emoji) His latest release was a different direction in the sense that it's more adult/mature so hopefully he'll continue in that direction.

It's always a pleasure talking about this with you too! I find this topic really interesting. pop music can be more innovative and creative than people give it credit for.

i guess i have to check out more of taemin's stuff too lol
