End of the year is ‘hell’ for k-pop idols because of all the special performances

Kpop idols are busily trying to perfect their performances for the end of the year Music Festivals and special performances. These idol singers need to show their skills in not only the 3 main broadcast companies, but Mnet as well.

Whenever they show a ‘less than perfect’ performance, the online Netizen community makes frightful remarks. There is no other ‘hell’ on earth for these idols star this year.

The problem is Japan. There are many Korean idol groups that gained much love from Japan and have to go to the end of the year performances in Japan as well. The main K-pop singers DBSG, Girls’ Generation, and Kara will be performing at Japan’s biggest music festival Hong Baek Ga Hap Jun.

One music industry representative said, “the end of the year makes a lot of problems. Since there are so many big events at one time, it is hard to avoid them. It also doesn’t mean all the idols can go to all the events. I think the idols that have Japan schedules will have the most trouble. The management companies are already trying their best to help these idols out”.
