It’s important to ask yourself: Which Kpop company treats their idols the worst? This is a very important question that inevitably will come up. While most companies are generally kind, some companies go above and beyond. For example, some kpop companies are notorious for mistreating their idols. Whether it is the label or the older members of the group, abuse of idols is all too common.
Not only are the companies that run the K-Pop industry notorious for treating their idols badly, but they are also often called out on social media. The company behind the most well-known groups, such as 4minute, has been accused of mistreating its idols. One example is Cube Entertainment, which recently disbanded its members 4minute and CLC and terminated all group activities. Moreover, the label also forced Hyuna and E-dawn to leave the company after they announced their relationship. While the label may be unable to give them any other opportunities, they do not seem to be doing their job very well.
The company also orchestrates kidnappings for entertainment, such as when VIXX kidnapped the daughter of the President of Kazakhstan. The global audience has been positioned as defenders of K-pop idols, but the tangled web of mistreatment and abuse has made it more difficult to distinguish between the two. Hence, it is important to be aware of the real picture and make sure that the K-pop industry practices the highest standards of humane treatment and respect for its artists.
