permalink I would hope C-POP's popularity isn't decreasing. I like a lot more than J-POP at this point. Maybe it's just a lull atm? Because recently there have been artists debuting (EXO-M and TimeZ) who have both C-POP and K-POP appeal. If we're talking about artists like Fahrenheit, Vanness Wu, Lollipop F, and other female artists, I'm not exactly sure why. It seems as opposed to actually doing promotions (which I rarely hear about) almost everyone's songs are for a show and not really for album promotion. I think Han Geng is an exception, he's extremely popular atm :)

permalink I think it decreases because of the impact of jpop and kpop. The people get in to these two countries' music first by watching anime, doramas etc. and they stand more closer to people because of their style and that's why c-pop is not really that popular.

permalink Kpop is completely on the rise. Jpop is not the music everyone likes because it sometimes tends to be a bit crazy. And I'm not sure if Cpop really had been very famous before. But if I'm honest, I tend to listen to the older songs more because they are mostly just better, my problem with many Cpop-singers is, that they often aren't very good singers, of course there are many exceptions, but some singers are just famous for their looks. This might also apply to Kpop, but if a Kpop artist debuts in one of the bigger companies, they are most likely to have received years of training before they are being put on stage.
And many Cpop artists end up with only acting in the end, I don't know why, but many start out with singing or being an idol and then when they are a bit more famous, they change to acting.
But there are still famous Chinese singers like JJ Lin Jun Jie, Jay Chou, Wang Lee Hom etc.

permalink There are too many TV programs in Taiwan, so it's hard for new artists to be known.
And we have no program like "music bank" or "music station" let the singers to be heard.
If your singing are not talented or your voice are not special, acting is a good way to be well known and be popular.
There still have good and pop "singers" in Taiwan or China, but they didn't act any dramas or sing any drama's songs, so they are not well known by foreigners.
Jay Chou, A-mei, Mayday, Sodagreen, Jolin etc. are pop singers in Taiwan.
A-fu, Jess Lee, A-lin, Jam Hsiao, Crowd Lu etc. are also popular these years.
In fact, indie music are increase because of Desert Chang, Cheer Chen, Sodagreen.
For Taiwanese, idols are just for teenagers.
So the companies didn't ask these idols to sing well or dance well.
If you are good at singing, you'll be an solo singer not an idol.
You can't find many great Cpop "singers" from dramas, that's why Fahrenheit, Lollipop F are not that pop in Taiwan but pop for foreigners.
I think the most different thing between Kpop and Cpop is "Korean love idol groups and Taiwanese love song-writer singers".

permalink in our country, they don't like c-pop because of the impacts on the issue of racist dominant..not all but its what i noticed to those on my generations..especially when they find a drama that we FILIPINOS are slaves..what is that??? sometimes, gaining fans is also gaining respect..which means you're showing respect to others too ^^

permalink In my opinion I don't think Cpop's popularity is decreasing. It's just that Cpop has never really been ultra popular or at least since I've been into Asian music. Up till now Jpop(including the sub genres) in general were leading the Asian music scene for decades. Now, Kpop has almost completely over shadowed Jpop. As much as I like Cpop it really didn't and doesn't stand a chance against the Hallyu wave. Plus Kpop out of all the Asian music genres actually has made it their mission to break into the western music markets. Cpop and Jpop is geared more towards their population. So those are my 2cents on the topic.

permalink Well I could say that because of K-pop popularity. Also I do agree that Mainland China don't push pop music globally compared to their Korean counterpart, and also factor in Chinese music doesn't sound as good as their K-pop counterpart. I mean it's no surprise that K-pop fans don't branch out to other Asian pops (yes, that include J-pop). However, I do see K-pop fans slowly branching out to Taiwanese music despite the music doesn't have the same appeal as Kpop nor J-pop. I think this might be because of the popularity of Taiwanese dramas, I mean read this article from LA Times. Also I think because of the collaboration with K-pop and Taiwanese one like for example:

I think that could be the reason why K-pop fans are slowly branching out to Taiwanese music.
