    BEWARE of TALKO channel. They are a known Kpop hating site, always putting out negative/misrepresentation videos trying desparately to discredit Kpop and Asian entertainment. Just look at how many "negative" videos this channel does on Kpop. As if American music industry isn't 100x more corrupt in every way. TALKO is subtly racist and trying desparately to discredit Kpop. Like I said, look at how many videos they have bashing Kpop. It's amazing.

    Can y’all stop comparing groups that aren’t even under the same company? And stop comparing western artists and kpop idols, they are both from different cultures with different standards. Also not everything in this video applies to all kpop groups/artists/companies. Stop acting like you know you everything just because you went on google and searched all this up. You don’t even know how the South Korean culture or K-pop industry works so you wouldn’t understand why companies treat their idols the way they do. And again STOP comparing artists form different genres. Each genre of music is different and has different standards and expectations.

    It's because there are so many KPop idol group and solo that must fight in KPop industry. That's KPop behind the scene, i don't know why people always talk about kpop idol life, but still i prefer choose KPop than another pop, because KPop quality is better than others

    •what pisses me off about this video is that you're focusing mainly onwhat the big 3 companies say.
    •You can't compare girl groups and boygroups with each other unless they're from the same company.
    Blackpink is not with bighit and bts isn't with yg.
    bighit is not part of the big 3.
    •and no, plastic surgery is not part of the contract.
    idols have the right to deny any surgery if they're not comfortable with it.

    Sorry but you are talking about one Jpop idol's dating scandle... Japan is very strict about that...
    But that's not the case in South Korea...
    Although some Kpop companies don't allow their artists to have a boyfriend or a girlfriend...
    Koreans in public are not that strict about it...
    Please don't mix them up...

  • Rosalyn Lu
    Rosalyn Lu 4 months ago +1

    A lot of this information is actually incorrect. Please research your topics well before posting them and spreading false rumors. The managers don't have control over the music that the idols make. In most cases, the producers make the songs and the idols just sing them. You're right about the lack of creative control, though.
    And dating rules aren't necessarily less strict on men. People under the same company, like BLACKPINK, the girl group, and IKON, the boy group, both under YG Entertainment, are both not allowed to date and have cellphones. One of the members of IKON has even admitted in an interview that they have are only allowed meet BLACKPINK in professional situations like music shows. BTS, on the other hand, signed under BigHit Entertainment, are allowed to date, but this is because of their independent company policies. They are in no way related to each other.
    You also talked about restrictive diets, specifically BTS's, but you failed to point out that Jimin and Jin's extreme dieting was their own choice, not their company's, although that might not be the case for other big entertainment businesses like SM, JYP, and YG.
    Finally, half of these facts don't apply to the photos you're showing with them, but people who don't know any better could think you're insinuating that they *do* apply.

    Lendl Alfred 4 months ago

    Some K pop groups consists of 7 or 9 members. Management needs to cover housing, marketing, training and productions, when all those expenses are covered, these groups have to share scrumbs.
    In my opinion, the extreme diets, the intense training and dating ban is not worth the money for
    these k pop stars. It's exploitation.

WE ARE NOT HUMAN ANYMORE WE ARE FRIKIN CAUSING PEOPLE TO LOOSE SO MUCH WEIGHT THAT THEY COLLAPSE AND CAN EVEN DIE?! WHAT IS WITH THIS WORLD?! I WANT THEM TO BE MORE FREE IN THEIR LIFE..I wanted to be a K-POP idol too.. but when I found out this was needed I wanted to be only a basic singer with more freedom.. They treat K-Pop Idols like dogs.. Poor dogs who cannot eat and cannot date anyone.. BTS can't even take a selfie with a fan.. not even a hug.. no it is impossible.. I want to free K-Pop Idols. And I will do my BEST to reach this goal.. I promise, Jimin, I will free K-Pop Idols from strict rules and Diets, I promise so that they can be human.. Not Robots or machines.. I PROMISE JIMIN Thank you for reading this until the end.. The more likes I get, the more HOPE I get to free K-Pop Idols.

    4:16 about this part... they are not from the same company so i feel like the comparison is not valid, though i do agree there is deffinitly favoritism towards male idols when it comes to restrictions.

  • cornelia
    cornelia 4 months ago

    The thing is, BTS is allowed to date bc BigHit is such a good company and SMent, for example, isn't. But yes, some companies are idiots and sometimes even Bighit can be I guess. Sometimes the idols themselves go into dieting bc they aren't happy about themselves, Like Jimin and Jin from BTS. So don't blame the companies all the time (even tho some r really stupid that I want to kill them :))
    Now, don't come at me that I'm wrong about stuff, this is just how I see it. Maybe I'm wrong maybe I'm right. Idk, but this is what I heard.

Well for instance we armys have been aware of jimin's small hands so like a 50% of this a fake but the other half isn't. What im saying is reasonable so if your gonna spread rumors or tell the truth you better do it with REAL and TRUE stuff. Your welcome

    Not a lot of this goes for BTS. Members like Suga suffer from anxiety and depression and the whole group isn't afraid to talk about mental illnesses and stupid societal expectations. They also get along well with staff members and most managers. The CEO, Bang PD also has a close relationship to the boys (calls them my 'sons' or 'boys' instead of objectifying them). It's sad how a lot of companies treat their artists badly, but from what we've seen, BTS doesn't experience AS MUCH. Why do you think Bighit is doing so well?
