Former FIESTAR member Cheska opened up about her K-pop experience during a Twitch stream AMA.
After debuting with FIESTAR in 2012, Cheska left the girl group 2 years later in 2014, and it seems she didn't have the best experience during her time as an idol star. In a Twitch live stream, she revealed a number of surprising allegations about a lack of transparency from her label about finances, a 7-year slave contract, her lack of friends as a K-pop idol, suicidal feelings, and more. She further stated that she had no desire to debut with FIESTAR but was forced to under her contract.
Cheska expressed, "I wanted to leave ever since I started, but I couldn't because I was under a 7-year contract," and "I decided to leave K-pop when I found out no matter how hard I tried with the members to be very close with each other. That's when I found out I had to leave before I ended up killing myself because that's what I was going to do."
