The media is a dangerous playground for those choosing to enter its grasp. As fans of K-pop, we are familiar with how manipulative the media can be in influencing an objective point of view. Scandals are rampant in the news, and truths are often perverted out of shape. The idols we love to watch are often performing an ideal public image and we barely get to see their true selves.
Even with these supposedly frivolous entertainment news, we are faced with the complexities of media construction. When international politics gets thrown into the mix, we see how the world of entertainment and the media have far more puppeteers pulling the strings than are visible onscreen.
