And it seems that no matter what stage they are in their careers, the idols are always working as much as possible, no doubt due to the relatively short shelf life of an entertainer. From the training process to debuting to sustaining a career for as long as possible, the K-pop idol answers always to the management company, many times under unfair conditions. Based on what makes it into the news, I find that the K-pop industry is unethical to and even exploitative of its idols. Regardless of the cultural differences, the difference in work ethic, and the demands of the insatiable fans, K-pop idols are treated unethically and commoditized by their management, which is a problem that is unlikely to drastically change due the constant high demand for new entertainment content and high supply of aspiring K-pop idols. It has been well circulated throughout the Internet that the typical contract between an aspiring idol and his or her management is lengthy, allows for little personal freedom such as dating or vacation days, feature packed schedules, and perhaps most glaringly, do not promise when or even if the trainee debuts. Why do idols sign these contracts? There is no simple answer, but it may be a combination of the young age at which trainees begin the process along with the promise of money. A well-publicized case is that of Hangeng against his former agency, SM Entertainment.
Yes, it’s totally wrong that the company follows them everyday with a camera. Even when they have holidays they should act in front of cameras. They don’t have any privacy. It’s like The Truman show. Everything is staged for cameras.

Ah, a mindfield of a question For me there’s two answers, the optimistic and realistic answer. The chances are slim, but so are the chances of winning the lottery! Companies always seem to be thinking three or four years ahead of the public, so anything is possible. You won’t be able to get in on your looks and half-assing it. You’ll need talent, dedication, and manners to succeeded. Honestly, if you’re talented, the below answer won’t apply to you. K-Pop companies want to be global and want to branch out.
In their report, they quoted an alleged insider who simply said, “Lee Min Ho and Suzy broke up recently. They went to Suzy herself and asked if she indeed did break up with Min Ho recently. Most of the rumormongers are pursuing the route of infidelity as in Min Ho and Suzy found love in another person. The easiest person to pair both of them with would be fellow co-stars from their latest works. For starters, both of them were still in a relationship at the time with the latter being married and having a family.
The big entertainment companies states dating ban on the contract with idol members. Idols are targeting for fantasy on themselves, so it’s pretty dangerous to date someone in public. Because fans must be disappointed of it and naturally popularity of the idol decreases.
As JB helps Hye Sung clean up the apples from her locker, a large group of students have gathered around them. Rian also shows up to investigate and is less then pleased to see them together. Meanwhile, pictures are already spreading through the rest of the school. Nana then runs up to him and gives him a bear hug. Si Woo is embarrassed and tries to tell her to not be so friendly in public since they have idol images to maintain.
Nana responds by pinching his cheek and putting him in a headlock, must to the dismay of Hong Joo. JB walks Hye Sung back to her room with the apples in hand. He turns around and lo and behind, here comes Rian. JB tells her to take it back, and Rian gives another hint about why they broke up:
YG Unfair Dating Bans?
Y Park dan menyebabkan kesulitan yang tidak layak untuk member 2PM lainnya. Halo, ini Park Jaebum. Apakah semuanya sehat dan melakukan segalanya dengan baik?
Song Seung-heon (left) and Son Dam-bi [Asia Economic Daily] Korean heartthrob Song Seung-heon has said he does not mind being involved in a scandal with popular songstress Son Dam-bi but that a report alleging that the two are an item are ‘unfortunately not true’. The year-old actor made the remark Tuesday during a press conference for his upcoming movie ‘A Better Tomorrow’, responding to.
But for SM theres a whole different story. Yes you need talent. If you sing bad and are the most prettiest girl on earth they still wouldn’t accept you. People say they accepted YoonA because she was pretty, really i didn’t see her pretty but i think it was because she sucked at dancing back then and look at her now! SM knows how to shape their trainees. JYP-They care for talent and mostly dancing. They also base on looks and are getting more strict on it.
SNSD’s Tiffany And 2 PM’s Nichkhun Have Broken Up

Which I highly encourage you to check out. Finally, No Love No More itself. But whatever the origins, the women in the barn and in the poster are indeed extremely similar, and almost all are objectified. And yet there are still more problematic elements in it, pointed out to me by the reader who passed the video on. Still, given that domestic violence is such a formidable problem in this country, I find it mind-blowingly irresponsible that the most powerful man in Korean music at the moment puts out a video like this source, right: He executed his girlfriend, but the poor guy must have felt immense pain to have been driven to do such a thing.
Break to the rest of the video, which simply consists of JYP dancing while dozens of women stand around or grope him as sexual props. JYP is, after all, immensely popular and influential in the K-music world, as he owns one of the most successful music labels in Korea and appears on countless TV shows and commercials.
Are you sure that you want to delete this answer? Yes Sorry, something has gone wrong. As far as I know, DSP is holding neither in the present or near future.
A former statement from J.Y. Park himself was recently uploaded on an online community board. The post contained screen captures from a previous television appearance where he talked about JYP Entertainment’s dating ban. “The dating ban was initially five years.
Guest The increase in international interest does imply a growing stage. The Guest post below is also mine! Their attempt at the US market hurt them in the long run. Out of sight, out of mind. I was never a fan of Tell Me but I loved Irony. Its well known that her interests have always been in acting and she was fairly decent in the few roles she did that I am surprised that she has not been given more roles since then.
JYP appears to be too busy trying to promote Suzy girl is adorable but needs some serious acting lessons that I think it is a wise decision that Sohee go to an acting focused company that will not only train her appropriately but finally help her get roles to build up her acting resume. I really wish her the best same with the other girls ofc. Sigh it really is an end of an era. Even girl groups are starting to get quieter. There is already an impending cycle repeat next year, so yeah.
It would leave the members a lot more well off than they are now, including Sohee, who was ridiculously popular.
TWICE, GOT7, 2PM, Suzy, Rain attend the wedding of JYP Entertainment CEO Jung Wook
His mother died in December as she struggled with diabetes. In a CNN interview and also in a Discovery Channel documentary called Discovering Hip Korea,  he recalled being repeatedly rejected because of his looks: During his early years of training, Rain was a backup dancer. Debut as solo singer and Pan-Asia success[ edit ] In , Jung debuted as a solo singer with his first solo album titled Bad Guy where he was introduced to the media through his stage name, Rain.
Netizens immediately started their investigations into the matter and found various posts and things which seemed to prove the couple had been dating since JYP Entertainment immediately addressed the rumors and denied they were true.
As a result, she released an mini-album entitled Me? As we all should also know by now, Park Jin Young was flabbergasted at her decision to put so many dark songs in the album prior to the release and told her she should at least add a few happier songs however, she pushed against the force of JYP and revealed a 11 paged letter focusing solely on why she should have released the album, JYP being exasperated at her choice and just giving her the go.
There’s been lots of huffling and buffling about this case from media outlets, numerous people taking sides and for the most part, international fans siding with Yeeun while Korean fans took the side of Park Jin Young however, I’m going to show both sides of the story and take into account my opinion of who is right or wrong instead of just completely downing Jin Young or Yeeun. Yeeun’s side The power of individuality is a beautiful thing TFELT expressed herself through her own composing conveying a range of emotions that the majority of Korean idols don’t even show and I applaud her standing up to the force telling her to go against Park Jin Young.
She did it more for herself rather than for the public, I suppose, and though this album didn’t top the charts or give her a certified all-kill, it certainly did give her the feeling of knowing she has achieved something:

Regarding this, Yabuki Nako said, “There are so many things that are different from Japan. There’s a difference in the language and there are many unfamiliarities. The members are helping us out. My Korean has improved a lot and I’m enjoying it. I hope they can cheer me on. Lia Kim is a popular for providing dance training K-pop idols and trainees. She was asked to choose the best dancer among K-pop idols.
TS Entertainment stated, “Our contract with Hyosung is still valid. A court trial is scheduled to take place on November 14, , regarding this matter. Therefore, Hyosung signing with a new agency is a dual contract, and clearly a violation of the contract. It’s unfortunate how Hyosung signed a new contract and sent out a press release without having any discussion or going through proper procedures with us, in midst of our ongoing legal battle.
We will take strict legal action against her for processing a new contract and announcing it to the press, and defaming our image and leading to confusion.
