@angelight313_168 - When I was younger (ok , I’m dating myself hahaha) - I don’t think “Idol dramas” are a trend in the US but I did watch - Dawson’s Creek and MTV’s Real World and Road Rules oh and “My So Called Life”
I guess “Idol school” is like a “stepping stone” to acting in SK and it’s a pipeline for the next K star? I heard it’s so brutal though and they don’t “get paid” while they are in training. They make huge sacrifices and it’s not always a guarantee.
I don’t think I can do Idol Dramas either but I did enjoy Dream High 1, I can’t relate to that demographic anymore.
I think male make up is something that I am still getting used to it. I on the other hand, am “equal opportunity” as I have an appreciation for male beauty across ethnicities . But I think this male make up in SK is fueled by these celebrities too - the image that they are projecting - I think same holds true for women and body image issues…
@vivi_1485 - maybe it’s a cue for these producers, writers and directors that the younger audience does not buy into the “cookie cutter” shallow stories. There needs to be depth in their stories and characters.
