Why Don't Idol Groups Work In America?
In Japan and Korea, idols are a huge deal. The fandoms surrounding idols and idol groups are massive, with a ton of merch, lingo, events, etc surrounding the entertainers. So why isn't that happening in America? The UK tried it out with One Direction and we have a few girl groups like Fifth Harmony and Little Mix, but for the most part the classic pop group ensemble faded away in the early 2000s. Here are a few reasons why it might not work: I'm not saying either opinion is correct - just stating how the general public views celebrities in America vs Korea/Japan. I'm not an expert on either so please share your opinions as well! 1. The Concept of Being An Idol Sure, celebrities in the US know that they are role models, but do they really take this as their job?! In Japan and Korea, a single slip up can mean public humiliation (such as when an AKB48 member had a boyfriend - she had to shave her head as an apology) while in America celebrities insist on their personal rights to do whatever they want. In their opinion, just because you're a celebrity doesn't mean you aren't allowed a personal life. They should be able to be in the lime light but also have a lot of personal life that shouldn't be judged by the public, In Japan/Korea, every aspect of an entertainers life is analyzed and people know that is just part of the job. You must be a model citizen at all times and any bad behaviour (whether its on or off camera) is bad for your company, your career, and your fans. 2. Company Loyalty In America, we know the big companies like Warner, Sony, etc, but we rarely pay attention to what label each artist is on. And even if they're on the same label they don't really work together so its hard for fans to be loyal to one company. The closest I think we can get to that is waaay back with Motown Records or more recently the bands that came out on Fueled By Ramen. Smaller hip hop labels still keep this group style too! We could actually see the connection the artists had on those labels and could support the label as well as the artists. Now in Korea, we all know that companies are a big deal. YG Family, JYP, Cube, SM, etc. They do things together like concerts, Christmas songs, etc. We are able to anticipate the company's new project or collaboration. It's easier for the fans to get hyped over multiple groups at once. 3. Pre-Packaged In America, bands are usually put together by the band members. Whether they start in a garage or they put up flyers to find members, it is the band that forms first, then the label that signs them. In Korea and Japan however, we have a TON of trainees all hoping to be perfectly placed in a group. Think of the show Produce! Perfect example of prepackaging :) One Direction is an example of that happening where the boys were somewhat put together by a label, but musical and personality differences got in the way :/ 4. Training Idols train a LOT. Sure, in America entertainers practice, train, get vocal lessons, learn new instruments, get prepped for interviews etc but they are not forced to practice for 12 hours a day. Living in dorms without cell phones or internet, being forced to learn languages, dances, public speaking, etc - its totally normal in the idol world. Because of this, idols should be pretty prepared for anything. I'm not so sure American entertainers would be up for this style of training. Can you think of other reasons why the "idol" style of the music industry doesn't work in America?
Kpop Fandom Name Meanings
So earlier @kpopandkimchi posted a card on how to pronounce (In Korean) some kpop fanclub names, and some commenters were wondering what some meaning meant. So, today I'm going to talk about some fanclub names, and their meanings/origins. SONE (Girl's Generation) Sone (Pronounce: So-Won) means "Wish" in Korean. Based off the girls' song "Genie", which Korean title is "소원을 말해봐" (So-won-eul mal-hae-bwa) meaning Tell Me Your Wish. It's also a play on words. Girl's Generation's Korean name is 소녀시대 (so-nyeo-shi-dae). The girls and their fans will always be one. So+One=SONE! E.L.F. (Super Junior) E.L.F. stand's for "Everlasting Friends". The name was chosen because the boys plan to be everlasting friends with their fans. SHINee World/SHAWOLs (SHINee) The group fanclub name is SHINee World (샤이니월드: Syha-ee-nee wol-deu), which is named after their first full-length album. Fans refer to themselves as SHAWOLS, which is an abbreviation for SHINee World. SHYA+WOL+ Shawol. Cassiopeia (TVXQ) Cassiopeia (Or Cassies for short) is named after the Cassiopeia constellation, which consists of 5 main stars, and TVXQ (originally) has 5 members. CARATS (Seventeen) So, if you're not a fan of Seventeen, chances are you've seen/or heard this name floating around the kpop fandom and your first thought was, "wtf". (I know what you may be thinking, and no it's not the food) Seventeen's first album was titled, 17 Carat, and one of the songs (Shining Diamond) has a repeated lyric, " Oh yes. I’m that Diamond. 흉내 낼 수 없는 Seventeen Carat" (meaning:"Oh yes, i'm that diamond. You can't copy this 17 Carat"). This was one of the many self fandom names the fans gave themselves. Eventually, the boys opened up a poll on their website where fans could submit fan name ideas. The boys picked around 6 names they liked the best, and the fans voted for which they liked the best. Carat was the winner, and was announced at their encore concert, for "Boys Wish" On Valentine's Day,2016. I AM (2AM)/ HOTTEST (2PM) 2PM's fanclub name, HOTTEST, comes from 2PM (arguably) being the hottest time of day. I AM+HOTTEST=I AM HOTTEST. MeU (F(X)) These girls waited a long time for a fandom name, color and solo concert, and they finally got one this year, MeU! The meaning is Me+U=MeU! Me+U was one of the girl's songs of of their first Mini Album, "NU ABO". Blackjacks (2NE1) This meaning is quite simple. In the card game, Blackjack, 21 is the highest number a player can achieve. TripleS (SS501) The 'SS' in "SS501" Stands for "Super Star". The third S Stands for "Supporter." So, they are "Super Star Supporters" Boice (CNBLUE) Boice is mix of "Blue" and "Voice". Blue, being the boys, and Voice is the fans. Boice! KAMILIA (KARA) The meaning to this one is that KARA believes their family are their fans. KARA+Familia (Spanish word for Family)=Kamilia.

Cnblue's Yonghwa has been cleared of charges, while Lee Jonghyun is being penalized
CNBLUEs Jung Yong Hwa, who had been under investigation for insider trading, has been cleared of suspicion. Fellow CNBLUE member Lee Jong Hyun, who was also investigated, was charged with a fine of 20 million won (approximately $17,300). Jung Yong Hwa had been under investigation for purchasing roughly 400 million won (approximately $347,000) worth of FNC stocks on July 8 and 9 of 2015, with which he then made a profit of 200 million won (approximately $173,400) after FNC recruited a major celebrity. However, it was revealed that at the time the stocks were purchased, discussions to recruit the celebrity had not yet begun, and Jung Yong Hwa had no knowledge of FNCs plans to do so. It was revealed during investigation that Jung Yong Hwa has entrusted his mother with his finances for some time, and the stocks in question were in fact purchased by his mother, to no knowledge of Jung Yong Hwa. It was only when Jung Yong Hwa heard that FNC recruited the celebrity that he sold some of the stocks in their possession. CNBLUEs Lee Jong Hyun, according to reports, heard on the morning of July 15, 2015 from an acquaintance that FNC would be recruiting a famous celebrity. Without checking if the news had been reported or not, he purchased FNC stocks. However, once he realized that the transaction would cause legal issues for him, he did not sell the stocks and has been holding on to them, which has actually cost him. The prosecution, considering that Lee Jong Hyun has deeply reflected on his wrongs, has granted him a summary indictment.
