Ah, ja dat ken ik! Toen ik bepaalde acteurs ging opzoeken op youtube kwam ik erachter dat er een hoop ook van dat soort zangers waren. Ik kon het ook niet echt waarderen. Te veel gillende fans, rare kostuums en neppe glimlachen. Te weinig echt talent. Alleen enkelen konden inderdaad wel goed zingen....

To Megumi: I'm not sure about the going to Japan part, but perhaps one day I will. I'll make sure to learn at least some Japanese before I'll do that though. And thank you for your advice. Don't assume that I'm choosing to believe one television program though, because if I did I wouldn't have any r...

Yes, more people have said that the Japanese are shy about their English. It's understandable, I wouldn't feel very confident speaking French, German or Spanish either in front of people from those countries, even though I am learning those languages at school. I guess the reason why I speak English...

Noale, It's a different culture and country... It's not surprising that certain things that happen on the other side of the planet are different than the way things are in a completely different content. Lots of Japanese (especially the older generation) tend to have somewhat of a complex but they ...

I understand that if you are Japanese yourself and proud of your country you may find this a sensitive and insulting topic. But I am dissapointed you think I am not willing to learn more from what people who post here say and that I just like to talk negatively about the Japanese. It is perhaps beca...

I usually try not to insult people, but don't you think you're being rude here? I do not jugde, I only say what I have seen and I ask people who know more about the Japanese culture to tell me whether what I have seen is true or not and to teach me more about it. That is the way it is. I, however, d...

Still I don't think that's a reason to brush people off when they start talking to you, but to some level it's understandable. If you know each other, it is rude to brush people off when they talk to you, but in case that both are mutually complete strangers, I think the right is equal , whether to...

It quite interesting to see what responses this thread gets. Ive been living in japan for the past 4 months or so and I say it totally depends on the type of people you come across. For example Tokyo is a busy city most people on the streets are in a hurry and have their own stuff on their minds an...

If you truly want to see and experience the japanese culture for yourself, don't be discouraged by what you might have seen on a television program. I know lots of people that have either visited or even lived in japan and none have come back and said that it was a horrible experience. There were, ...

When I was in Korea, I was an English teacher. Students would come to my school AFTER their "regular" school to practice English. The way they explained it, it is almost impossible to progress in the working social world without English. So many careers requiring a high level of English, with the i...

who says they don't learn English in school? I'm afraid that would've been me. But I actually meant that they don't learn it well. Not well enough to actually have an English conversation with a person. That's what I noticed from watching the show though. I think its because they learn English in J...
