There are so many reasons why K-Pop “slave” contracts should be made illegal and I believe there is so much evidence to prove that they exist and why they shouldn’t be used anymore.
South Korea’s music industry is slowly, but surely becoming internationally popular. K-Pop. If you’ve never heard of K-Pop, you will. You’ll find that one song and soon your phone will be filled with them. You probably won’t understand a word of it, but it doesn’t matter. Music is music. How do I know this, you may ask. This was me. As I write this post, I am listening to K-Pop.
From colorful outfits, to catchy tunes, to perfectly choreographed dances, to girl groups with 9 members and boy groups with 12 members, it’s hard not to fall in love with some aspect of K-Pop. As much as you wish you didn’t, you can’t help it.
I know what you’re thinking, “A boy group with 12 members?! How do you remember all their names?” It’s crazy, I know. Just know it’s doable. In our western society, we’re use to boy groups with only 4 or 5 members. Like Backstreet Boys, NSYNC and One Direction. But K-Pop is more of a, go big or go home, type of industry.
However, K-Pop isn’t all rainbows and sunshine. There’s a much darker side to this industry.
