    What are your favorite Korean and Japanese singers and bands?

    Whether by watching anime or Asian dramas or just by surfing on the net, we have been introduced to K and J music and have become fans of it. So here’s a thread to share our favorite music artists from Korea and Japan. Please post the name and a link to a song from each one of your favorite K and J-artists so that the rest of the members of the site who are not familiar with said artists can have a taste of their music and maybe even become fans of them.

    Here’s my first contribution to this thread:

    My taste in music is based more on the songs themselves rather than the artists but here are some J-artists that I consider my fav because I like more than one song from them:

    1)Ayumi Hamasaki / Ourselves

    2) M.o.v.e / Dogfight


    3) Yumi Shizukusa / Hana Kagari

    Re: What are your favorite Japanese singers and bands?

    Love Psychedelico (duo with a female vocalist, some different sounds)
    9mm Parabellum Bullet (One of the 'outstanding' rock bands out there currently, real nice heavy sound)
    The Pillows (Old-school stuff, they're brilliant, even now)
    Re-Trick (A jazz trio, drummer, bassist, keyboardist, seriously cool stuff)
    ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION (A really well known band, if you haven't heard any of their stuff, it's worth the listen, done quite a few anime songs)
    THE BACK HORN (Another well known rock band, they've done a few anime songs, like the ED for Gundam 00, but very worth the listen)
    discord (Relatively unknown group, but they're a classic rock band, slight twists on their sound, but really good)

    Here are some songs from most of the bands you posted hatsuharupeace, I tried to look for a link to a song from Discord, but since the name Discord is shared by more than one band I had a bit of trouble finding a song from them.

    LOVE PSYCHEDELICO - I will be with you

    9mm Parabellum Bullet – Supernova

    The Pillows - Hybrid Rainbow

    Re-Trick - Another Side of Agenda

    Asian Kung-Fu Generation - After Dark

    THE BACK HORN – Koe

    Here are two more of my favorite J-artists:

    Mamoru Miyano – Kuon (He is also a very talented seiyuu)

    Stephanie – Friends

    Utada Hikaru. She is another one of my favorite J-artists. She is so amazingly talented; her voice is simply captivating. Here are some of my favorite Utada Hikaru songs:

    Deep River

    Re: What are your favorite Japanese singers and bands?

    Utada Hikaru's like a J-music staple A lot of my schoolmates who couldn't care less about J-music have heard "First Love" haha. And +1 for Arashi's "Ashita no Kioku"

    Recently I've been listening to a lot of UVERworld, T.M.Revolution and abingdon boys school. The other day I looked back at my iTunes library at all my T.M.R songs and realised I'd been a fan of T.M.R's for 11-12 years, since I was like 7 or something! Pretty amazing XD

    UVERworld - Colors of the Heart
    T.M.Revolution - resonance
    abingdon boys school - STRENGTH.

    Re: What are your favorite Korean and Japanese singers and bands?

    As I mentioned before, my taste in music is based more on the songs themselves rather than the artists or bands but since I like more than one song for this K-band, I thought I would post them in here :

    TVXQ!

    (東方神起) _ 이것만은 알고 가(Before U Go)

    Share The World
