Well, honestly I could probably write an essay about this, no joke, but just some thoughts for you who think this year’s kpop agency scandals are new and horrifying.
1) They are horrifying. They aren’t things to laugh about. People who think ZE:A’s leader posting about his depression and thoughts about suicide and being slapped by his CEO all the time… I want you to think about what you would do in that situation and then think about how you would feel if somebody said, oh, you’re just an attention seeking whore who wants money.
Guess what. WANTING MONEY ISN’T A BAD THING. If I sign a contract saying I’m supposed to get 30% of my royalties, guess what, I’m allowed to complain if I don’t get that. If I sign a contract that says I’m allowed to renegotiate the contract after 5 years, guess what, I’m also legally allowed to do that. It’s ridiculous the things people were saying. Honestly, if you looked at any of his past behavior, I would say that boy needs support and medical help, not people saying he should throw himself off a bridge because he wants money. And anytime somebody makes a joke about suicide, I just feel nauseous. Somebody taking their own life isn’t ever something to joke about. Ever. It’s one of the most inhumane things I can think of somebody ever saying to another person. If you were one of those people who said those things, you can stop reading now because you probably won’t give two fucks about what I’m writing.
2) They aren’t new. They are fucking old as dirt.
Why do you think South Korea has one of the highest suicide rates in developed countries? Why do you think they recently instated laws against cyber bullying? I’m just going to remind you of some recent and not so recent events to jog your memory. Hmm. Where to start…
