So Kpop and Jpop are very popular genres that I like. I've also discovered Thailand had pop music that is similar in sound to kpop and jpop but in Thai, of course.

My question is, does this exist in other Asian countries like Cambodia, China (including Hong Kong or Taiwan)
, Vietnam, Laos, etc? Even the Philippines? (I know it's a completely different language family but I've never heard any music from there that wasn't gospel)

And if anyone has any examples, I would love some links!

Thanks in advance if anyone knows anything

Chinese pop music is somewhat similar to K-Pop and J-Pop (C-Pop, perhaps?) but I haven't heard much of it. I do know that Cantopop (pop music sung in Cantonese) is very popular.

Do you know any examples of Cantopop?

There is also Mandopop for Mandarin pop music, V-Pop for Vietnamese pop music, and Pinoy pop or P-Pop for Filipino pop music. If you want to find it the easiest way is to just search YouTube for pop music from the country you want to listen to.
