Why are K-Pop artists committing suicide?

DEPRESSION is a real thing. Most of us suffer from that at one time or another. I have and my mom was constantly depressed but no one saw that side of her. They only saw the bubbly warm lovely woman that they knew and loved. My mom was depressed as a child and never sought out help for it. When she got breast cancer and my dad got sick with his stroke she checked out unwilling for the last round of taking care of my selfish fuck of a father. While I don’t blame her one bit I also thank her for all her hard work with me although she did not like me being gay. That’s her problem – not mine- although I have resolved that part of my mom’s issues before she passed away in 2001 and in her afterlife.

KPOP kids practice and work 24/7. You can’t do that over and over again for that length of time no matter what age you are. You need some fun time for yourself. When an art form you love becomes WORK you aren’t doing it right and you will get depressed – that I promise you. Make it fun, take proper time off and you will do much better in your career and life. Maybe you will be TAYLOR SWIFT or not – but your quality of life will be a lot better taking time off to enjoy the money you make. No kid should grow up and then do this to themselves. It’s just not worth taking you life.

k poppers who committed suicide

Here are some little known facts about K-Pop Trainees as well as the IDOLS who all live in Seoul, Korea in dormitories where their managers control and micromanage most of their lives on stage and off. There is plenty to be depressed about once you hit that IDOL stage of KPOP.

How often do K-pop idols go home?

Depending on the company and the group’s popularity, an idol can get one to two days off per week. Big 3 group Twice talk about days off here and there but it never seems like a common thing and I’m convinced they often work through their days off.

Do K-pop trainees live in dorms?

Both trainees and K-pop idols who have debuted typically live in dormitories, where their management agencies control their diets, their love lives, and their behavior.

In order to become a famous Idol in KPop these kids sign SLAVE CONTRACTS

Slave contract

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

slave contract (Korean: 노예 계약; Hanja奴隸契約RRnoye gyeyak) refers to an unfair, long-term contract between Korean idols and their management agencies.[1][2]


Aspiring K-pop idols, known as “trainees,” sign contracts with management agencies when the trainee is as young as 12 or 13 years old.[3] It may take ten years for an agency to groom the trainee and for them to debut on stage, according to the former head of the Korea Entertainment Law Society.[2] Both trainees and K-pop idols who have debuted typically live in dormitories, where their management agencies control their diets, their love lives, and their behavior.[3][4] Under most contracts, trainees and K-pop idols are required to pay back their management agencies for the cost of singing and dancing lessons, their wardrobes and living costs, among other things. As a result, K-pop idols may not make large profits.[1]

Many K-pop groups often take years to break even, and thus do not receive their share of any profits made from their songs until their trainee debt is paid off. The notable exception to this are groups from the “Big 3” companies—SM EntertainmentYG Entertainment, and JYP Entertainment. Trainees under these three companies get paid as soon as they debut and generally do not face trainee debt at all, unless they leave before completion of their contracts.[5]

The unfair treatment of K-pop singers and trainees has been prominent in the Korean music industry. As a result, agencies including SMFNC, and DSP were told by the FTC of South Korea to stop canceling trainee contracts on dubious grounds, such as morality clauses.[6] Nonetheless, many pressing issues have yet to be addressed by the FTC of South Korea is the mistreatment from the South Korean entertainment agencies, which are manifested in Draconian and non-standardized contracts.[7] These contracts often create manufactured and controlled identities, in order to maintain a façade of a “supremely talented and gorgeous, single, heterosexual star, seemingly accessible to fans of the opposite sex”.[8] Two successful idols who signed with Cube Entertainment were dropped from the company due to being involved in romantic relationships. In addition, both male and female idols are expected to achieve and maintain an unhealthily slim figure in order to even be considered for applying to trainee programs.[8]


In 2009, three members of the boy band TVXQ took their management agency SM Entertainment to court, claiming that the agency’s 13-year-contract was too long, too restrictive, and gave them almost none of the profits from their success.[1][2] The following year, in 2010, South Korea’s Fair Trade Commission (KFTC) created a rule that limited entertainment contracts to seven years.[9] In 2017, the KFTC again put restrictions on entertainment contracts. Among other things, the 2017 reforms reduced the financial penalties for K-pop trainees that break their contracts early and made it more difficult for companies to force K-pop idols to renew their contracts.[10]
