You indicated in the survey that you listen to music.
What kinds of music do you listen to?
Who are some of your favorite musicians or composers?
I don’ t have a particular genre I like when it comes to music.
I just listen to whatever is good at that point of time.
It doesn’t matter whether it is hip-hop or R&B.
The only type of music I don’ t like is Rock.
As for my favorite singer, I personally like a Korean singer called 이승철 and his music.
He is one of the most well-known singers in Korea.
He has tons of hit songs.
Among his songs, “ 소녀시대” and “희야” are my favorites.
Meanwhile, I also like a K-POP group called BIG BANG.
They are one of the biggest groups in Korea.
They have a lot of fans overseas because K-POP is very big in Asia.
Both 이승철 and BIG BANG are very popular, but their music is different.
이승철 does a lot of ballad music, but BIG BANG does a lot of hip-pop.
They both have fans in all age groups.
Overall, I hope they both become bigger singers in the future.
