North Korean media says BTS & BLACKPINK are treated like slaves

AKP STAFF

North Korean media revealed BTS and BLACKPINK are treated like slaves.

A
rirang Meari released a report on famous South Korean singers and idol stars being treated like slaves by their companies. The media outlet stated, "Recently, famous young singers in South Korea have been forced into miserable lives by large companies. Singers like BTS and BLACKPINK sign exclusive contracts with large entertainment companies such as SM Entertainment at a young age, like in elementary or middle school, and receive training to become a singer."

It was also alleged idol stars are stopped from leaving their dormitories and can only sleep 2-3 hours a day. Arirang Meari continued, "Many female singers who suffer humiliation and insults under the harsh training process are also forced to cater sexually to politicians and businessmen. Many young singers suffer huge mental duress and live akin to being in a prison without bars even taking their own lives while leaving a will testifying to how suffocating life is."

The media outlet further stated these allegations are well-documented by South Korean and Western media outlets as well. The reports come in the midst of the burgeoning popularity of South Korea K-pop among North Korean youth.

North Korea is the last place that I want to hear talking about mistreatment of people.

People there can literally get shot for listening to or speaking about BTS. ( source youtube comment defenders )
