Is the Korean music industry losing its creativity?
The Korean music industry is aging, and not just in the sense of an increasing number. An endless number of idols have been constantly debuting, giving no chance for singers of other genres to ever reach the spotlight before disappearing. Industry representatives have been agreeing that the industry is in a desperate need for urgent measures. Many agree that the possibility of succeeding in today’s current market with what is considered “normal” music, only amounts to 0%. While the average ages of the idols are getting lower and lower, the average ages of talented singer songwriters and indie rock bands are getting higher.
