Japan Abuses SHINee JongHyun’s Death To Create TV Content
South Korea and Japan have never been the best of friends. And the recent event is one of the uncountably many reasons why things will remain that way.
South Korean netizens and SHINee fans have been furious over a recent TV broadcast in Japan that focused the spotlight once again on JongHyun’s tragic death. It turns out that Japan has created a TV issue that specifically focuses on the dark side of the K-Pop industry. The show even included past South Korean celebrities that have committed suicide.
And because SHINee is signed under SM Entertainment, the Japanese media didn’t hesitate to include TVXQ and Girls’ Generation when making a small introduction about SM Entertainment. Why? Because they can casually talk about and remind the viewers that the groups have gone through problems and nearly disbanded. It’s all about portraying everything in the most negative way as possible while also being as indirect as possible.
Japan apparently seems to know why JongHyun tragically took his own life. Well, not really. But what the Japanese media are saying is that the reason for the suicide was most likely due to the dark and twisted way of life within the K-Pop industry. They claim the following chain of events as one of the reasons why some South Korean celebrities commit suicide.
- South Korean celebrity finds huge success and an immense increase in popularity after being active in Japan.
- South Koreans begin to criticise and hate any South Korean celebrity that finds success in Japan and accuses the celebrities of siding with Japan over South Korea.
- The celebrities then fall into a dilemma.
Basically, the Japanese media want people to believe that the K-Pop industry itself is an extremely terrible existence and is responsible for not only the death of SHINee’s JongHyun, but for all tragic events that have happened in the past to K-Pop idols and celebrities.
