My Question or Issue

 I keep getting K-POP recommended and its VERY annoying. I dislike K-POP and I don't even understand the language, as I am Canadian. I have never listened to K-POP and have never added a K-POP song to my library. My account is for personal use only and I have never lent it to anyone. I have blocked every K-POP artist that showed up but I still get them recommended. It is also very annoying and time consuming ( and to be honest impossible ) to go around blocking every single K-POP artist, please just give us the option to block genres that we dislike. It's not like I'm going to change my mind and start listening to K-POP if Spotify continues to recommend it to me, if you're not planning to add the option to block certain genres, at least get the job of blocking artists done right. I really do not understand why I continue to get Korean/Chinese/Japanese/Asian songs recommended to me. This is very frustrating for me and I don't want to stop and switch songs every 10 minutes because I don't understand what the song is saying. This has almost provoked me to unsubscribe on numerous occasions, please get this fixed soon.
