America's excess and the world. Compared to other wealthy countries, America stands out as a gluttonous over-consumer of both food and fuel.
The article gave details on how the South Korean music industry has gained a great amount of strength in the last few years and how it has had its eyes set on gaining recognition and success in countries all over the world. However, the subject matter that took the most prevalence in the piece was not the K-pop artists themselves, but rather the controversies that have arisen regarding their agency contracts and intensive training regimes.
One of the most unique factors of K-pop is that artists can deliver slick and complicated dance routines, belt out some amazing notes and carry off eccentric styles and concepts all in the space of one four minute music video.
While these artists are unquestionably talented, to be able to get to this level of ability takes training…and a lot blood, sweat and tears. In the increasingly competitive and ruthless arena that is the K-pop industry, it is usually not enough to be a good singer.
Ideally, you need to be above average at singing and dancing, it also helps if you are able to speak well in front of the cameras and be funny enough to get a good amount of screen time.

It is not shocking that the BBC News article chose to focus on the training of K-pop artists; after all, it is a very unique process that is practiced within the South Korean and also Japanese music industry.
The article briefly covered the JYJ vs. SME controversy and mentioned that many of the idols will work long and strenuous hours and see little payment in return. SME lawsuit — I become angry at the high level of injustice that has been suffered by these artists.
Exactly how much do these artists know before they enter into such agreements? I realise that I have formulated a very strong opinion on a subject that, not only am I not at all personally involved in, I know almost nothing about.
I am not for a second suggesting that every K-pop artist is living in the lap of luxury and is treated like royalty all the time, nor am I saying that they are forced to work like dogs until they fall apart.
I am just saying that one should not jump to conclusions about a situation when they are not fully in the know about it.
It annoyed me quite a bit that the author of that BBC article chose to focus on the controversies and problems that the K-pop industry has been associated with when the music has been barely established within the UK.
It seems like this sort of news coverage will only build more barriers against the Hallyu wave in the UK even before it has had a real chance of success here. This is a very important issue that will need further addressing by South Korean authorities, especially Human Rights.
