The sound of Asian languages as told by a white guy

I’m on a “V” train going uptown to a meeting. I happened to take a seat across two white guys in business suits and long wool coats. Perhaps it was a mere coincidence an they were already in midst of their conversation but as soon as I sat down they started talking about Asian languages. Apparently one guy has a Mandarin speaking girlfriend and he as telling his friend/colleague that certain Asian languages have a more appealing sound than others. Just before I got off to transfer to an express train, the same guy told his associate that he likes the sound of the Mandarin language as opposed to Korean.

Me thinks this guy has an Asian fetish.
