    most of Japanese people/most of the Japanese people

    Hi, again.

    1. Most of people love these songs. - incorrect
    2. Most of the people love these songs. - correct
    3. Most of Japanese people love these songs. - ?
    4. Most of the Japanese people love these songs. - correct

    1 is wrong, 2 and 4 are grammatical, but I'm not sure about 3.
    Should it be "Most of the Japanese people love these songs."?
    Thank you.

    Re: most of Japanese people/most of the Japanese people

    As you say, 1 is wrong, 2 and 4 are grammatical, and 3 should be "Most of the​ Japanese people love these songs".

    Better still would be

    'Most people love these songs.'

    'Most Japanese people love these songs.'
