GOT7 Jackson’s Thoughts O K-Pop Stereotype Assuming Idols Can’t Make Their Own Music
GOT7 member Jackson Wang had quite a lot of things to say about the issue of K-Pop idols being stereotyped with the notion that they have nothing to do with the actual production of their music.
During K-Pop’s earlier days when it was assumed that idols would just have to get surgery and make themselves look pretty while musicians and producers prepare songs for them, times have changed and there is an increasing number of idols who are active participants of their song’s production.
Jackson appeared on the Zach Sang Show and stated:
“First of all, I don’t know about this stereotype and it’s not true. It’s just, my group GOT7, we write our own songs and we produce everything like I would say 90% ourselves. I don’t get why it’s ‘manufactured.’ Why is there this stereotype? I don’t get it. Tell me how you guys feel.”
He also stated:
“I think it’s because they don’t want to get deep down into it. Like, you see a lot of K-Pop groups releasing a bunch of songs but if you really want to get deep and actually know every artist and their personalities and visions, it’s all different. From the outside, they see it as a bunch of songs but I don’t think it’s a good way to judge it like that.”
