Personally, I don’t like pop at all. I especially hate K-Pop. I’ve never enjoyed its repetitive, simple and unoriginal melody, nor watching its video clips. I don’t understand why people love K-Pop singers and I don’t even like talking about it!
In Korea, music companies run the business of K-Pop way more than the artists themselves. The groups are even marketed as belonging to SM, JYP, or YG (these being the most famous). Says Daniel Tudor, author of Korea: The Impossible Country. “I feel that K-pop is too controlled; the big companies see music too much as a product.” Most people who have an interest in K-Pop actually have preferences to one specific entertainment company or another. Independent artists with some good talent are not as popular. This is one of the things I hate about K-Pop. It only requires young and beautiful boys and girls with normal talent, trains them to perform songs that are probably composed by the companies. It’s a never ending process since there always are high school students who want to be famous.
