What is the Success Formula of K-Pop Idol Trainees?

The rising global popularity of K-Pop has shed new light on the training system where future idol stars are trained and groomed, often for many years. Most K-Pop artists have graduated from these programs, spending an average of two to three years being trained in everything from singing to dancing, and even taking lessons in acting and learning new languages. This model, which are even being exported abroad, has led to the creation of talented K-Pop idol star who are finished products from the moment of their debuts, although criticism has also followed in its wake due to the grueling schedules and the intense competition being faced by the trainees. In this week’s edition of ‘What is’, we take a deep dive into the K-Pop’s sophisticated training machine that is churning out one global star after another.
