:K-POP: THE DARK SIDE:


'Im starting to love K Pop a little bit. They go full out on their music videos. Outfits are out of this world quite literally and the settings, dancing, lyrics and beats are all full throttle. Everything is very sparkly and fantastical, and I can imagine young girls and camp men going absolutely nuts for it in their bedrooms and gay clubs (the bedroom is the equivalent to a nightclub to a young child you see)

The girl groups are so girly and sugar filled and the boy bands are overly romantic with perfect hair and dance routines designed to give any female under the age of 12 their first feeling of obsession and probably panic attack shortly after...

 Now not many of the bands are big here or in the US  but daym they are trying. Big Bang who you can see a video of below were the first K-Pop band to make it in the Top 10 ITunes Album in the US.  Here's some of my favorite K-Pop videos below for you to have a look at so you can see what I'm talking about. Especially watch the 3rd one, that'll be your favorite and then read below to see the darker side of the Korean Kpop music industry....

The K-Pop Girl band 

The K-Pop Boy Band 

And the K-Pop Don

PSY after his gangam success was outtes for performing anti-American songs on stage including a song called Kill those fucking Yankees....can't really cover that one up can you. In one of his performances he can be seen destroying a fake US Army tank. This was all in support of South Korea and their political views.Naughty. Since then he has issued an apology saying he will be forever sorry.  
Oh well, everyone's got secret videos in the closet, it's just his were performed on stage so you see where I'm going with this.

But of course as is a standard in the music industry, there's a dark side and it's as dark as soy sauce.

Apparently the Korean pop industry is pretty harsh and demanding of their artists and are known to force young stars into what is called 'slave contracts' because of their long duration and little money. But this isn't even it. Some people in Korea have become so obsessed with K-Pop that haters and obsessives have taken it to the extreme.

Hang Geng, a popular Chinese K-Pop solo artist not only struggled to terminate his long and harsh contract with his record company but also has had various people trying to kill him because of his fame. One fan* gave him a bottle of water which contained sulphuric acid in it. Another gave him a small gift which ended up containing some blood, a knife and a stabbed picture of him.

Other anti KPop acts include:

-Various rapes and assaults committed on female K-pop artists and fans
-Needles and death threats being sent in the post with demands for money
-A man squirted soy sauce and vinegar into the eye of Eunhye from Baby Vox
(I love soy sauce and vinegar, why would you ever waste it?)
-Various poisonous foods and good being sent to fans
But the funniest of them all that I found is, anti K-Pop fans tried to develop a plan to kick Han Geng out of Korea because he was stealing native Korean stars  'bowl of rice.'

Poor Han Geng

So if your serious about making it big in the K-Pop world then you better get some life insurance and the best security rice can buy because it's a deadly game out there.
