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.

    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.

    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 agency. Bighit definitely not saint, but they definitely much better than any korea agencies. I bet many teenagers who dream to be idols are eager to enter bighit because of how they manage BTS. 2am changmin even proved how nice bighit is when he is contemplated to change to other agency because he dont think he gonna find another agency that treat him well as good as bighit so he end up setting up his own agency.
    Actually, each company have different approaches in managing their artists. Its really depend how lucky and wise decision for the trainees in selecting the company who they want to be trained in.

    6. Suicide problem.The suicide rate of Korea is very high.Its not only the problem of k pop but also of Korean society overall.Because competitiveness of Korean society is high and the entertainment industry is extremely competitive, the suicide rate is high especially among young people who are vulnerable.

    I wish you didn’t include photos of Jonghyun’s funeral, it’s super disrespectful for his family and friends, and also upsetting to see their distress
