Sunmi claps back at a commenter who said that idols don't write their own songs


Malicious commenting is, unfortunately, a common occurrence in the Korean entertainment world, 

Sunmi was definitely not having it when one particular commenter made a rude remark towards idols on an article that announced her upcoming album would have self-written songs on it.

The comment stated: 

"It's not just Sunmi but when idols say that they compose their songs, they don't contribute much and just parade around as if they did something because their names are in the credits."

Sunmi proceeded to make an Instagram post directly addressing this matter, screenshotting her article and the comment.

형태가 어떻게 되었든 무언가를 만들거나 창작 해내는 것은 어려움이 많은 작업입니다. 그만큼 여러 부분에서 사람들의 도움이 필요로 합니다. 하지만 지휘자가 어떤 이야기를 하고 싶은지 또 어떻게 표현하고자 하는지 자기 자신이 이해하지 못하고, 설명할 수 없고 또 실행할 수 없다면 함께 작업하는 사람들은 혼란스럽습니다. 단순히 앨범 크레딧에 이름을 올리려는 보여주기식의 작업을 하지 않습니다. 가사, 멜로디, 편곡, 앨범이 만들어지는 과정 하나하나를 고민하며 다듬고 또 고치면서 제가 표현하고자 하는 걸 완성합니다. 저 뿐만이 아닌 대부분의 아이돌들이 그렇다는 개인의 편견이 기정사실화가 되지 않았으면 합니다.

Her caption reads: 

"Whatever the form, creating something is a difficult process. We need help from many people in different aspects. However, if the executor doesn't know what they want to say or how they want to say it without understanding, the people working on the work will have a chaotic time as well. We don't participate in the album just to have our name in the credits. The lyrics, melody, arrangement, all parts of making the album are things we think about and fix in order to perfect the way we portray ourselves. This is not just me, but other idols as well and hope that this personal opinion doesn't become a stereotype."

the "labels" again, if ppl label you as an 'idol' then ppl believe that you will always be a talentless and brainless with popularity, if ppl label you as an 'artist' they always believe you were born and will always be so talented and that everything you do is and will be a pure art.

We label idols, artists, and ppl in general so much that we forget that they are human beings with the ability to constantly learn and improve. A person labeled as an idol could learn many talents and improve it so much that could even to be more talented that a person labeled as an artist, why? because they are still human beings and can learn and improve a lot. Such as a person labeled as an artist because of laziness or bad vices or huge ego could become negligent in his/her work or creations becoming almost a talentless person. why? because he/she is still a human being, and human beings are not perfect.
