They forgot to add you have to be Asian, because God forbid a westerner wants to be an idol, that's a no no ☝️🙄

They literally depend on the west for recognition and money but doesn't have the balls to open Companies to a more diverse trainees? In that case with the blantant racism and colorism kpop should stay in Asia. You only want Asian idols than don't promote in America or any Western country.

SM knows what they are doing . Everyone call them flop when they introduce NCt concept then Aespa. Everyone was haters of Aespa before they debut now everyone is anticipating their album , loving the CGI - AI concepts. SM knows what they doing but Hoping they wouldn't turn things completely American.
