how much do people have to pay singers to sing at their wedding ceremonies? ie: IU, etc

IU is hard to know because she would be far more expensive but it can be anything from $100 to $50,000 depending on who you’re asking for.

Hello, I was curious about the mentality of parents of idols. Knowing what little I know about the dark and inhumane side of the Korean entertainment industry (and other entertainment industries) and how training basically sidelines an education, why would parents let their children train to be idols? Especially for idols who did academically, why risk it and sacrifice so much for a possibility?

Which is why a lot of privileged families are against having idols or celebrities marrying into their dynasties; their family background is (usually unfairly) stereotyped as not being up to standard. Being part of a privileged family means that you are restricted in life and career choice; freedom comes with both parents working long hours.

In a lot of cases, some parents just want their kids to be successful in whatever they are good at. That’s just love. They pay for their child’s singing and dance classes, take them back and forth between schools and academies etc.

In Taeyeon’s case, it was only after she’d won a singing competition and been scouted by SM that her father took her up to Seoul; so her father knew that one of the bigger companies wanted his daughter and she actually had talent so it probably wasn’t a scam etc.

In other cases, the parents never approve. Kahi from After School ran away from home to become a singer/dancer, and it wasn’t until she was like 30 that she finally got the chance to debut as an artist (after years as a back-dancer).

There are also cases where the parents are so rich that they know they can “protect” their children from whatever darkness is in the industry.

If SM pays nothing for concert appearances overseas, does that mean that SM is brought over to these countries on invitation in a sense? What about when SM wants to organise SMTown or solo tours, when they may have a wishlist of destinations? How much of the costs are they willing to shoulder to secure stops at these places, and how open are they to proposals from organisers outside where they want to go?

Basically, that’s the normal structure for one-off concerts and sometimes for tours unless there is a local promoter who are partners with SM that arrange stuff for them. Again, not just SM, any major K-Pop act is the same.

I'm wondering why other sm artists aside from Super Junior, like SNSD, never held any concerts in the Philippines.. if a country wants to bring in a group from SM, can SM reject their offer? I'm not so sure about how the whole concert thing works

If the schedule fits and the money is there, sure. If the Philippines is able to have enough people buy enough tickets to afford a 7-digit budget (including the profit for promoters and event holders etc) then it’s possible.

You make Yuri sound ignorant with your reply to anon.. Fyi, Yuri didn't just private her ig. She changed her display picture, removed her diplay name and blocked followers. If you don't know why she did all that, couldn't you have just said so?

You mean the same Yuri that eventually unprivated her account?┬áDoing something by accident doesn’t make you ignorant. I’ve accidentally irrecoverably deleted hours of work before but I wouldn’t call myself ignorant.

If anything, you telling me that she was in her account settings to change things is pretty much evidence pointing towards her accidentally privating the account. As for dropping follower numbers, it’s not necessarily blocking, because celebrity follower numbers go up and down all the time with any celebrity; and if you restrict inflow by privating, but the outflows are unrestricted, the number necessarily drops.

Yuri isn’t ignorant. This impassioned defence of something inconsequential is.

Why is Christmas seen as more of a couple holiday in Korea?

Because Lunar New Year, and autumn harvest festival Chuseok are our Christmas and Thanksgiving, where we all gather to meet family.

f(x) is the one of the best selling album for girlgroups (physical), Victoria and Krystal are popular in China, f(x) got one of the highest score in Music Show, f(x) has high MV views compare to the other girlgroups or even boygroups.. They even won some awards.. Then what makes SM keep shitting on them? Why didn't give them concerts? Or more fanmeeting or fansigning? Or events to attend? Why didn't let them promote more in China?

Who knows? There definitely seem to be underlying issues that stop them from pushing the group but nobody outside the company seems to know what exactly. There are group dynamics and members being blamed but it’s all hearsay until something actually happens or gets revealed.
