They're running out of suitable fodder for their system, the toxicity of the environment, and the trainees having to sell their souls to the company vs the potential for rewards is very imbalanced.

.

I'm not surprised that they're having to look internationally, where perhaps the kids don't know so much about what's involved. If a child of mine wanted to be a musician or in a group, I'd send them down the singer/songwriter route, rather than letting them get trapped in the idol system.
