    And why are we blaming kpop industries . We made them toxics bcs fans wants there idol to be perfect , we want beautiful, skinny . Fans don't like fatty idols. This is the reality. That's why , kpop idols have to maintain everything only for their fans

    Well if we want to achieve anything we have sacrifice and do hard work . This is not only for kpop idols ,in every job we have to sacrifice and do hardwork. And toxicity exists everywhere but if you really want to achieve your dream and know yourself thn you have to adjust everywhere💕

    Kpop is Korea's soft power. It's a political weapon. Don't expect things to be easy. It's way more than a show and music

    K-pop is a tool designed by Korean leaders to spread the Korean culture abroad and make money from it. Music is a political tool for these people

    I like k-pop and music in general and follow artists. However, I would never ever put an idol over myself. It’s not realistic. Love them and their music but don’t invest life, blood, and happiness to follow an illusion.

    They wanted a robot. Not an artist.

    If it's not for you, it's not for you. That doesn't make it toxic or even that other people in it believe that it's toxic. It's a job, just like any other.

    One part is, let's say you're one privilege in ur company, ceo nd bosses like you, gave u many opportunities, BIG part of u don't want to walk awayđŸ˜¶ so many had stay. Now they r the successful kpop idols. However if you're just an average trainee and didn't get favor from the company its easier to walk away. That's the true nature of ppol. We let go of things when it didn't work out. SO YES IT'S PRETTY TOXIC. 😐😐😐
