Can A Caucasian/Non-Asian Become A K-Pop Idol? A Debate Brought Up Again By “UHSN” Girls
Can A Caucasian Become A K-Pop Idol? Or can a non-Asian become a K-Pop idol?
If you have been in the K-Pop international community for a while, you will know that it is one of the huge debate. Views are very divided on the subject.
The debate was brought up again by the girls of the show “UHSN” who love K-Pop and are in Korea to learn more about it.
Luda from Poland explained that her dream is to be a K-Pop idol but that she has a lot of thoughts about it. She explained that in Korea she feels that she will not be accepted because she is not Asian. She said that she doesn’t know how to do.
Maria from the U.S. explained that among international fans of K-Pop there are people thinking that someone who is non-Asian better not become a K-Pop artist. After she appeared on the TV show “I Can See Your Voice”, she had to face malicious comments.
Koreans who commented the post mentioned that he/she would like to see only Koreans in K-Pop. The person also said that they are already a lot of trainees in Korea. Another person mentioned she can’t understand why non-Koreans want to debut in Korea because there are already so many local trainees.
International fans also have divided opinions. While some are asking for more diversity in K-Pop groups who are global artists, some think that K-Pop idols should be Asian (or only Korean). Opinions are diverse and the debate is huge.
