This is a daaark dark industry

Contract can have unfair terms, and I agree that consider most artists are underage, does not have the right mentality to distinguish or truly understand many things. South Korean Government is a willing and knowing participant in profiteering from these criminal acts of Human Trafficking. The behind the scenes may not be pretty but the result is magical. Pyonkun As an accountant, I totally agree with you. The entire nation is basically wired to the matrix living a fantasy world.

It would be much fairer if K-pop did this as well. Korea itself does not provide any infrastructure to succeed in life.

This is a daaark dark industry. Hollywood used to have something called the studio system where actors were under restrictive and unfair contracts.

When a K-Pop Star commits suicide because of South Korean Government pressure, then that government is most assuredly guilty of Democide. The song writers, music producers, choreographers, stylists etc. When you are in what is essentially a mafia-like web of money, everything from your financial to your physical well-being might be threatened if you disobey. Bc I think Mafia-like to describe the industry is a somewhat accurate way.

This is often

No sex, no money, no freedom, just living a dream before it runs out.

Plus, thank you for the link too, I also found it interesting. Once it does run out, according to my mom, just literally commit suicide. They screwed him and his family on the level of finance and even outside finances.

All of those people work just as hard and are artists just as much as the idols. This is an International Crime and the producers and managers face life in prison, if convicted. Why do Americans always have shit to say when their own yard is full of shit.

There is no one

Artur Volpi You are trying to be neutral, but you come across as pro kpop industry to me. No one actually gives two shit about the artistic aspect of the music. Some dedicated research, investigation and reporting would have made this a much more interesting and compelling story.

Even darker than the kdrama one. As we all know, an idol performance is a whole package.

This is often a case of abuse of minors. There is no one else who can dance, sing, act, do commercials like korean idols.
