According to a 2017 Bloomberg report, the worldwide K-pop industry is worth almost $5 billion, but this fame comes at a cost. It might be all shiny and happy on the surface, but K-pop has a disturbing dark side that artists are only now starting to expose.

    You have literally only ONE source.You don't know shit about kpop so you a ask an idol who signed a contract with a bad agency.Only 7% of kpop agencies are like this.You put Twice's photos for everything.YOU PUT BTS IN THE THUMBNAIL TO GET VIEWS.In case of Kpop , you are completely ILLITERATE.

    Becca Luna bts music gender are kpop, but they are not kpop. Just because they are the most famous of them all dosent mean they are kpop. ITS many other groups and like BP are almost at their level, but bts is better.

    No wonder the suicide rate is sooo high among South Korean artists. I heard a lot about this and reminds me of how artists are treated in TVB. You work hard for very little money. I feel very bad for them!This shows us what reality is behind all of that glamour and fame. They suffer so much in silence.

    Correction: New K-Pop fans don't know about these things.I've been a K-Pop fan for well over a decade and I've seen these things.That's not to say that I'm not glad that it’s being discussed more though. It is a serious problem that only is going to continue if we stay silent.

    @Javee ik,but what I meant is that they're far better than the big3,ofc they become worldwide band so their schedule is much tight than before,and sometimes the company didn't tell them to overworked,after schedule they can do whatever they want but the member choose to work instead of sleep,how they handle things,how they let them do whatever they want is far better than the big3

    When they put BTS at thumbnail and most of the contents they said on video actually not related to BTS and their company, bighit at all......BTS have said countless times that they love bighit and feel grateful to get freedom in making their own music. They dont have any dating ban and bighit always help to handle their dating life to be secretive. Plus, they get to manage their own twitter account since day 1 and its really rare for any kpop groups account that tend to get managed by their own agenc...
