North Korean Media Claim Idols Such As BTS & BLACKPINK Are Being Treated Like Slaves

It has recently come to attention that North Korean media has been claiming idols such as BLACKPINK and BTS are treated like slaves.

North Korean media outlet, Arirang Meari recently wrote an article that accused famous South Korean singers of being treated unfairly and forced into living like slaves by their companies.

Recently, famous young singers in South Korea have been forced into miserable lives by large companies. Singers such as BTS and BLACKPINK sign exclusive contracts with large entertainment companies such as SM Entertainment at a young age such as in elementary or middle school, and receive training on becoming a singer.”

The outlet also claims that the idols are blocked from excursions outside and only are allowed to sleep for 2 to 3 hours a day while receiving strict training. The profits made off them allegedly go to the companies under the guise of educational fees.

“Many female singers who suffer humiliation and insults under the harsh training process are also forced to cater sexually to politicians and businessmen. Many young singers suffer huge mental duress and live akin to being in a prison without bars, even taking their own lives while leaving a will testifying to how suffocating life is.”

The North Korean media outlet also claims that this has been reported as such in many South Korean journals and Western outlets as well. However, the North Korean media outlet who claimed this is currently under critic by South Korean netizens, given the block North Korea has placed on the burgeoning popularity of South Korean idols amongst North Korean youths.
