Oh! well I was thinking more like comparing American/English music to Korean music and just overall discussing the successes of both. I don't really know how long I'll keep that idea because I want to do maths at uni so it doesn't really go ahhaah, what did you do yours on?

Just a quick question - what grade did you get doing this? It seems like laying out all of that in the introduction wouldnt get you as high of a grade, as it's not really the conventional way of doing an academic essay. Just wondering of course!
