Though most Kpop and Asian music are "popular music" they are mostly comprised of pop ballad, electro, dance pop, rock-ish, Hip-Hop and RandB which are mostly sang or performed in Korean or insert other appropriate Asian language here. Kpop and other Asian artists and songs first gained popularity in the Philippines through the various and highly succesful Asia novela and Korea Novela aired in prime time TV and also probably because of your Korean neighbor who is in the Philippines to study English.
