Chito Miranda, obviously a strong advocate of the local music scene, is here to defend supporters of K-Pop as well!
In his recent Instagram post highlighting that "OPM is not dead", fans echoed the same sentiments with some turning to attack Pinoy K-Pop lovers. "Solid pa din ang OPM. Yung mga ayaw maniwala, nilamon na ng KPOP," one commented.
But the Parokya Ni Edgar vocalist urged them to respect all kinds of music saying, "Kung apektado ka sa Kpop, then you are focusing on the wrong things. Ako trip na trip ko Kpop and walang masama tumangkilik ng Kpop." It was in 2013 when Chito first admitted that he loves girl groups like Girls' Generation, 2NE1 and Sistar.
Meanwhile, another online user criticized the foreign language. "Ayus (sana) KPOP kung naiintindihan mo yung kanta kaso marami sa mga tao nakikiuso (lang)! (Dapat) mahalin ang sariling atin. #opm da best!"
Chito responded, "Bakit yung butchikik ng Yoyoy Villame din (hindi) ko naintindihan pero na-enjoy ko naman haha! Pwede mo ma-enjoy ang kanta kahit 'di mo maintindihan yung lyrics."
"Kanya kanyang trip lang 'yan," he added.
