K-pop and Korean entertainment from Korean fans' perspective

'Ssul Jeon' discussion on why so many male idols get into scandals

Q) Why do so many first generation male idols get into scandals?

Kim Gura: "They don't know a thing when they're in a company. But once they leave, they become fearless. It's like they reach late puberty. Being free from a company can make them loosen up mentally. It leads to their controversies."

Heo Ji Woong: "The idol system under entertainment companies originated in Japan. Girl groups have a very short period of expectancy. Whether it's marriage, acting, or variety shows, female idols tend to choose their paths quickly. But male idols are relaxed because they think they have a long period of expectancy. When it comes to boy groups, it's either a disbandment or a long-run."

Kim Gura: "Most controversies are related to drinking and gambling. If you drink, you have a higher chance of meeting scammers."

Park Ji Yoon: "Female idols are free from those drinking and gambling temptations as long as they don't date a weird guy!"

Kim Gura: "Female idols are indeed not associated with gambling."


Instiz: Kim Gura analyzes why male idols get into a lot of scandals

- I think it's true that boy groups have a longer period of expectancy than girl groups

- I really agree with the notion of late puberty... I heard that a lot of idols don't know how the world is like so they tend to fall for tricks ㅠㅠ

- If you drink, you really do have a higher chance of meeting bad people

- They lose their rookie mindset, that's all

- Now that I think of it, I can barely remember female idols causing drunk driving or gambling ㅋㅋㅋ
