With all these comebacks recently, I've been wondering what you all think about this subject:
Are idols being worked too hard?
For VIXX's recent Chained Up comeback, N was not only an MC for a music show but was filming a drama AND hosting a daily radio show (granted, some of this was pre-recorded so he didn't need to do it every day...) on top of that they various showcases in other countries AND had to practice for their showcase (they needed dances for ALL their new songs, not just the single!)
For BTS they have publicly said that they're getting maximum 3 hours of sleep per day - and they just flew to Hong Kong for MAMA and will be performing the next day and the rest of the week for Korean music shows.
Take all that into account PLUS the fact that most groups do fan signs so they have to interact with fans (and travel to get to each city) about 2 times a week (each event takes about 2 hours and there are often more than one per day!)
I know that the idols are doing what they love and that they chose this profession, but do you think they're working too hard?
If yes, then what is a better way?
Fans will get mad if they promote less and the company won't make money...
It's all so complicated :/
