    Nope.

    But good luck to those who feel its worth the sacrifice.

    I don’t know if I’d necessarily want to be an idol, but I love performing. Whenever I watch videos from tours, I’m always in awe of all of the people that come to concerts to see musicians live. I think it would be the most exhilarating experience ever.

    But that’s not guaranteed  when you are an idol. Kpop idols work ridiculously hard, but the Korean music industry isn’t exactly the largest. These days it seems to take two years before artists can even hold a solo concert in Seoul. That’s a bit sad.

    One thing that could be both a positive and negative part of being an idol would be the fans. Of course there are cases of extreme fans, but Kpop fans are also the best at supporting their bias groups. I think it would feel amazing to have such dedicated fans.

       Sometimes I watch fancams of concerts just to watch the crowd. They give me the chills sometimes. Everybody waving their lightsticks and chanting together. I saw a vid of fans chanting to Super Junior’s Superman song. Seeing everyone do that beginning together, I felt like the floor should be shaking. So cool…

    No way for me to be a K-idol, but I’d love to work with them.

    I would be, for about a week. Just to try it out, for fun.

    to be honest, i find it much more exhilarating to be a fan.

    Meh… as hypocritical as it sounds, but Call Center job is waaaaaay more enjoyable than being an Idol (in my case of course). The pay is not as high as being an idol, but we gotta enjoy the benefits of being a non-idol than being an idol, like eating the food that we want, receiving incentives for every additional work or great job we did, we can have moments with our families, we can have sleeps from 4-9 hours (in the morning of course, since most Call Center agents work at night), and we do not have to have our ‘personalities’ programmed to be seen as rather too wholesome whatever. Call Center job is exploitative ( I do not want to give more details, just Google it and you can get what you want to get) but not as crazy as being an idol… You know, we don’t have to suffer being objectified or worse, being pimped for sexual consumption by the elite.

    Two words Sasaeng fans. Nothing is worth them. Nothing. Its like being a prisoner. I’m sorry I like freedom too much.
