Quite a number of my male Facebook friends (won't name no names) specifically from Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore get very excited when a new Kpop boy band music video comes out.
You might be led to think that if this is happening to Asian males outside of Korea then through some skewed reasoning it might be safe to assume that perhaps this is also a phenomenon in Korea. Actually no. It's not.
On the flip side, my Korean male Facebook friends (both from North America and Korea) couldn't give two shits about which boy band came out with which single.
And that's why this non-Korean Asian male obsession about Kpop boy bands is a little suspect. Because these boy bands were created specifically to cater to females.
It gets worse when you see these Asian males sporting Taeyang haircuts.
