According to my very scientific calculations, the answer is "Yes, mostly."
My data says yes too! I spent last week scraping Spotify data to see how the release of entirely English songs by year compares with Japanese and Chinese releases and the increase is insane. Looking forward to getting this all into my thesis when I hunker down and actually get back into writing it 😅
i confirm this! i listen to kpop since 2020, but variety of songs from before i got into it and i can confirm that i'm annoyed right now that there way too many songs in english than normal, i feel like it's not kpop anymore. lyrics are weird right now, and don't make sense if they are in english, but in korean they would make more sense. i mean, when i first got into kpop i had to turn on the translated captions to understand what they say and the lyrics were deep. but now everything seems a bit shallow, but i still enjoy kpop, but i tend to lean to kpop with more korean than english now
I feel like it’s less English than usual.
