Recently the news of the death of South Korean singer Go Hara took the
internet by storm. Her body was found at her home in Seoul this week. Go Hara’s
death has uncovered the dark side of the K-pop industry.

Hara’s death has enlightened the pressures the star’s face, it shone a
spotlight on how difficult it is for females to make a spot in the K-pop
an industry where everyone is at each other throats, her death was also an
an embodiment that how much pressure the conservative South Korean society has put
on women.

Go Hara died at the age of 28, the news came two months after another K-pop
fellow Sulli died, it is said that both of the famous female K-pop stars were
targeted with extensive cyberbullying and sexual harassment. Throughout their
entire career, both were target by the public and the media which affected their
mental health.

pessimistic note was found
during the investigation.

K-pop was only famous in Asia once but due to some of the popular K-pop
groups such as Exo, BTS, and BLACKPINK it has spread worldwide.

industry long ago. The artists start training from their teens and train for a
considerable amount of time. Only a few of them are able to debut and become
successful.

industry has very strict rules including dating bans on the artist, forced
dieting slavery contracts. Experts say that for female artists these rules are
even more strict and unfair, there are additional requirement for females and
unspoken rules that reflects the patriarchal society of South Korea.
