How did you get into Asian Entertainment?
So, how did I get into Asian Entertainment?
This seems like a stupid question since I'm Asian myself. :)) but mind you I know a lot of Asian young people who dislike Asian Entertainment. They think it's not cool and they prefer American stuff. I know that Canadians are easily influenced by the Americans but I just think it's sad that they don't want to embrace their culture. You can both appreciate your own culture and the American one, right? :)
Anyway, I got into Asian Entertainment ever since I was a kid... I don't remember how old I was but I remember my parents used to watch plenty of TVB dramas (Hong Kong dramas) and Taiwanese dramas. That's basically how every Asian kid gets introduced to Asian dramas. When I hit my teenage years, I discovered I would rather watch Asian dramas than the popular American TV shows. Why? I don't really know. Probably because I thought Asian dramas were far more interesting. ;;)
