  1. Good grief that was depressing asf.. And the celeb culture in asian is absolutely brutal. So once you've "made it" so to speak.. it just gets worse. Pretty from a distance but nothing I'd ever wanna emulate..

  2. APPRECIATE YOUR IDOLS. This is the blood sweat and tears they put in to entertain us. Don’t talk shit about any idol because they really be giving it their all!

  3. I feel so bad for them, I mean they're expected to work tirelessly and being 100% in perfect form at all times, while also doing it over and over again and also not getting the nutrition, energy or the patience to being a K-Pop Idol

    Looking at this makes me wanna boycott the whole thing all together

  4. Being famous comes at a price though

  5. Is D.Holic from this company too?

  6. Diet with only eat salad or only eat once a day will make your brain risk. Brain need karbo too.

  7. When I ask my mom what Entertaiment is the “worst” in korea she said Star Road Entertaiment she said that she doesn’t like how they treat the trainees cause My mom’s friend actually auditioned there and became a trainee but she quit cause they were forcing her to loss weight (half korean btw)

  8. When..i can be girlband korea

  9. i cried midway thru.. i can't imagine how horrid off camera can be

  10. Wake me up when K-Pop dies altogether. Worst gimmicky music I’ve heard in a long time. I don’t get the hype and appeal. Bunch of underweight people with no rhythm. Thank Black culture for any ounce of swag these people may ever have. Lol

  11. 0:42 i recognized her , she’s Lana’s back dancer I knew that her face was familiar and I never thought she would be harsh like that

  12. That part were the girls were excited for losing a whole lot of weigh and skipping meals is just sad.

  13. honestly i would like to see the kpop thing die

  14. Wtf your life is more important than this shit

  15. Fame come with price they would know that

  16. I searched up STAR ROAD and Mario Came Up 😂

  17. Feel sorry for K-pop stars.

  18. Is this real? Is so scared i want to be idol, but watching this video makes me get scared 🙁

  19. Boycott this shit, they are slaves. The company and manager takes almost 100% off the profit. They don't sleep, they train about 15 hours per day. It's a tragic business.

  20. After watching this video, I think I still want to be an idol, because other Idols inspire me to be one 😢💜💜

  21. oh my god… im so sorry

  22. If I were a kpop idol I would probably do a dance video then a song and go on from there I know some gymnastics

  23. I guess this is what kpop idols went through and still do

  24. Who got a BTS ad before this?

  25. 4:46 remember when we are kids and play with dolls? And like stretch thier legs to the limit?
    That’s exactly what this is!

  26. I know this is bad to say but I hope this company gets shut down!
    Like I know it’s hard and a miracle to get here but. Torturied splits? Not enough food? Excuse me? this is slavery just disguised as so called k pop idols!
    Stop forcing them!

    If I was rich and owned a company like this I would give them a healthy FULLFILLING diet and good sleep love and encourage them etc!
    Yikes wow I feel so bad ! 😭

  27. The first part made me wanna scream

  28. Other got worse review than her and she got kicked out? What?

  29. Star road entertainment: ACTING LIKE WHO DONT KNOW HOW TO DO SPLITS AND THEN TORTURE PEOPLE TO DO FORCE SPLITS AND EAT 300 CALORIES A DAY
    Healthy and positive energy: AM I A JOKE TO YOU!?

  30. NEVER EVER FORCE THE SPLITS.

  31. I’d like to see the judges do better to be honest 😒 I’m hoping all the likes on this video are because people can finally see how bad some companies in this industry treat people

  32. that's the most horrible thing I've ever seen in my life

  33. you are crazy this is inhuman poor thing this trainee this is not training to be idol this is torture she is a human being like me and must be at least respected and i don't see this and this documentary is horrible i'm shocked to myself this it's unforgivable i never thought korean companies were so disappointed this company disgusts me

  34. That Joo hey-jin? I wanna to punch her in the face

  35. This is actually the company to Kenta and Sanggyun from JBJ and now JBJ95. Now I understand why they cried so much when they got their first win…..

  36. This was hard and painful to watch. I feel for them.

  37. And ya'll still hate kpop idols.

  38. she should go sign with like yg+ or pledis or woolim

  39. 스타로 만들기 위해서 회사가 치뤄야 하는댓가. 1명당 20만 달러[email protected]
    스타가 되어도 방송사 무대는 회사가 꾸민다. 방송 1번에 1만 달러~2만 달러
    인기를 얻을 가능성 1%
    당신도 회사도 모든걸 걸고 불가능에 도전하는 것이다.

  40. 내가 보기에는 영상에 나온 분들.. 모두 가능성이 많이 희박하다.
    그리고 실패해도 아무것도 안남는게 아니라 백댄서나 댄스 학원을 만들수 있다.
    옛날에는 걸그룹 숫자가 몇개 안됬지만 지금은 너무 많아지고 경쟁이 너무 치열해져서 꾀 힘들것이다.

  41. Que coisa desumana

  42. Oh lord that first girl – do you want it or not?!

  43. Fast track and shit the weight thing

  44. One word – HARSH but not as harsh as the army who will follow them and comment 🙏🏻

  45. This is my dream for being a k pop idol….but i think should i give up?
    Should i change my dream?…many question in my head and i don't know what i want….others said being a k pop idol is too hard…but i want my dream become true….others said being a k pop idol is hurt when the time comes it makes you stress or depression…then someday BTS said:
    "FORGET WHAT HURT YOU,BUT NEVER FORGET WHAT IT TAUGHT YOU"
    "NO MATTER HOW HARD IT IS RIGHT NOW THINK OF WHAT THE RESULT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL"
    "IF IT CAN MAKE YOU HAPPY,THEN IT'S SOMEWHAT IMPORTANT"
    "PEOPLE SUCCEED WHEN OTHER SAY NEGATIVE THINGS"
    "BE WHAT YOU WANT TO BE NOT WHAT OTHERS WANT TO SEE"
    "HARDWORK WILL NEVER BETRAY YOU"
    and the most important they said is:
    "NEVER GIVE UP ON A DREAM THAT YOU'VE BEEN CHASING OF YOUR LIFE"

  46. Imfact and ZE:A are under this label. 😳😳😳

  47. Fuck that company

  48. That trainer is just like my old dance teacher. She criticized me for everything so I quitted that class.

  49. It’s hurts it really does to see this is what you deal with EVERY SINGLE DAY

  50. My heart broke when she told the girls who was trying out for the agency “You make my ears hurt. I don’t want to listen to you to you at all.” They already work them like slaves and those girls put there everything in. At least have a heart.

  51. is that what k pop Idols had to go through then I don't think I want to be an idol anymore

  52. Before being a k pop idol: normal, regular weight, mentality great.

    After becoming a k pop idol: underweight, mentally destroyed, far from normal

  53. Imagine if they filmed that forcing of the split imagine what they do off cam

    Disgusting 😔

  54. I can’t believe this ……

  55. I hate that 'Joo Hyejin

  56. you should go to jyp entertainment 😂

  57. This wants me to go downstairs naked eating at 3AM eating Cheetos

  58. They were doing Boombayah in one scene… makes me think how much the girls have gone through… Any of our Favorites have gone through this.. not any, ALL of them have

  59. Her: I think I consumed about 300 calories a day

    Me: she should be so slim than me 😔😢

  60. Cause people idol is not for untalented. If ur not talented this what will happen to u.

  61. If ur not born with even a little amount of talent 1 year is not enough time in practicing. Cause u can only gain the skills for years

  62. If you are feeling sorry for them, just do not support this kind of industry. I am just starting to not support KPop industry, though i am still a fan. Slowly i just hate this kind of exploitation. Stop being a fan of KPop. No humanity at all.

  64. My mom told me i have to be skinny to be a kpop idol

    Excuse me have you seen Shindong?

  65. is there no woman company???

  66. The trainers in the kpop industry are just trash. I wouldn't let them even breath near my kids if I were a mother, they're pure evil, they don't teach, they're mediocre at teaching and they only know ABUSE as the only method of training. Trash trash trash.

  67. If I owned a KPOP entertainment, I would encourage, teach, feed them and take care of them

  68. This is torture, this is inhuman.

  69. Jesus Christ the screams are terrifying they are filled with pain it’s real scary

  70. The judge are disgusting…

  71. 0:01 this scared me 🙁

  72. Filhos da puta,ninguém aprende isso em um dia não Caralho,como a pessoa tem coragem de postar uma coisa dessas

  73. Why they need flexibility?! Suga(BTS) can't make half of what Mizuho does! Poor girl…

  74. how does she dance like an elementary school student •-• dafuq 1:35

  75. This is just stupid.

  76. Girl JYP would treat you much better

  77. Really they said she was good but didn’t make it 🙄 stupid Kpop Company

  78. i think the best agency is just JYP. I dont know why, but I have a feeling

  79. WHY MAKE HER DO A SPLIT BRO!!!

  80. I can't even put it into words how much I wanna punch that bitch right now.. "I would want a refund" "You make my ears hurt. I don't want to listen at all" "I won't let you debut. I'll kick you out instead" screw you, and why is she so fucking unfair to Mizuho for her pronunciation? she's still learning the language give her a chance
    I wanna punch the old ass motherfucker as well who said Mizuho dances like an "elementary schooler", bitch get your old ass up and show us you can dance better

  81. I wish I could become a kpop idol…

    But I'm not Asian._.

  82. She’s doing all that training AND learning Korean? Damn.

  83. I don't agree how they treat the trainees sometimes as human we're not good at something, we can't force the person to be perfect.

  84. It broke my heart when she did all that training for nothing💔😢

  85. I really hate how that judge was criticizing that everybody. Instead, she should've told them what they can do better. If you just criticize, they will never know what they can do to be better.

  86. A refund girl ill watch your perfomance first

  87. i just think that it's not worth it. putting your life and health on the line to chase yr dreams? i mean from what ive seen frm this video, some were clearly suffering. im not saying to not have these dreams or to not chase them, i just think that sigh, this is another form of slavery. and if you make it as an idol? youre still contracted under them, still have to follow the rules and regulations of the company, etc. this is slavery.

  88. Dance mums but worst

  89. all those days and months that most of us peeps wanted to be a kpop idol

    CAN WE GET A BIG OOF

  90. I hope people who see this don't think every company is like this…..there is a lot of bad companies but not all are this harsh. also there is a reason why this company isn't know…just saying. Let that sink in.

  91. they doing it perfectly, they're not human!!!!

  92. Its sad that being under weight for them is a blessing, i just hope beauty standard can change into something healthier

  93. Mizuho in the thumbnail is me when I feel pressured and told too many times on what to do. 😢😢😭😭

  94. there's no easy at work/job world, everything have their own difficulties and trial, this video is just the one from million trial for reaching dreams that we want most, even we curse on this but the fact pain and sacrifice is always being the shadow on our life path to reach the light, thats why i always hope for kpop idols and people outhere who success to get their dreams, please not forget the step u take , the sacrifice u must paid to reach ur dreams, dont lost in fame, dont lost in the cheers…because i watching so many people in this world havin amazing journey but when theyre on top they fall easily, dont make the time u got crown is more shorter than the pain u must face it. i saw many people fall in second after fight for a years,its really sad for me ,,, so i really hope u enjoy the ride ,and keep rememberin ur goals and where u from

  95. Umm…I have never seen black pink members doing splits; and this is just acting,which they did on camera. So I don't think all companies are like this.

  96. THIS AGENY IS SO GROSS, 50KG OR LESS? YOU SHOULD WEIGH 50KG TO MR.CEO
