Female ex-trainee exposed a 'normal' thing in Korean entertainment industry

Posted: 30 Mar 2013 09:00 PM PDT



K-pop fans know that before their idols became famous, they underwent a lot of strenuous training to hone their inborn talents and to develop new one. 

It's sad to know that there are rumors (at least we call those as 'rumors' because there are no solid proof) that there are k-pop idols who experience unfair treatments. Their aspiration to be well-known with their talents are used by some people.

JTBC exposed through an interview with an ex-trainee that sexual favors are very common in Korean entertainment industry. Common? As in, is it like a part of the process to become an idol? Without it, you can't go to the next step? I'm just asking.

She stated and I quote: "When I was training to become a Korean idol, I was often asked to appear at a bar. I was minor then. Honestly, there are agencies that don't develop stars but function as brokers that trade female trainee to different sponsors that are willing to pay 220-900 USD."

This is so alarming. Is this what the aspirants need to undergo to reach their dream to perform in front of many people? If the answer is yes, I wish there are no K-pop idols anymore. It's better that I'm not writing about them than to write stuff like this. 

Whether it is a fact or a fib, the fact that it's being brought up, things to address this should be done.
