Diversity/sophistication in Music + x = A mature music industry
x = promotion/Marketing sophistication and consistency
We are missing x. If we have x, then the Chinese music industry can finally take flight.
I thought cpop was just ballad when I first got into cpop but now I realize just how diverse the industry is. But there’s no music programs to show off the song in China like there is in Korea or Japan. And no talk show to show off the personality of singers, and there’s only a limited number of variety shows…
enjoyed this issue of Music Monday! keep up the good work.
