The reason is simple because of money. You see S-K is a developed country but still have a big unemployment problem. A lot of young people commit suicide because of it.Hi all, first post in the general kpop forum:
Since a lot of you are familiar with the cultural settings is SK, I have a general question.
I stumbled upon produce x 101 when they covered a bts song (bts are the only kpop group I know and follow).
I understood it's a show to form the next kpop supergroup and out of 101 contestants 11 will be chosen. 43 companies send their trainees, and its its 4th season
With everything known about kpop industry, which in my opinion is much more problematic than music industry in the west where everything is more hidden and controlled .. why so many people still chase the dream of becoming an idol? The market is saturated, the life of an idol is harsh with a lot of restrictions and I haven't even talked about the abuse.
So from the aspects of the culture and public opinion, why are there still so many waiting in line? And how do so many parents send out their very young kids to this system? Had me wondering.
I have been following bts and even though they are rich and ultra successful, their life seems sad with their company keeping them caged
"South Korea’s unemployment rate hit an eight-year high in August as mandatory minimum wages rose, adding to economic policy frustrations and political challenges for President Moon Jae-in whose approval rating is now at its lowest since inauguration.
The unemployment rate rose to 4.2 percent in August from 3.8 percent in July in seasonally adjusted terms as the number of unemployed rose by 134,000 people from a year earlier."
I think most of them makes a pact with the devil to become famous and get inside the "club". Nowdays this is just a requirement I guess because when you look at their "work" is self explanatory of what they stand for. I feel like if they ever do something like that, they select random people and I don't think they will do anything to this group. But if they do, maybe Vii, Jamal or even Kook has a bigger chance since they are the most loved.But if the rumored bts already made a pact with the devil which is true and they did. And they were undergo mk ultra program, it's not surprise they need sacrifice for their fame.
They need to pay to the devil, and jin or v. Both born in December, it's something with illuminati numerology.
I keep counting on members age, better prepared for the age 27. Every member could be sacrifice since this age rebound the mk ultra program and caused mental breakdown, they needed to be throw once broken.
