Some Korean celebrities reject audio chatting app Clubhouse

Korea is no exception when it comes to the popularity of the invite-only voice chat app Clubhouse. Led by many celebrities, influencers, and opinion leaders, an increasing number of people are downloading the app which allows for users to participate in or listen to discussions on various topics. Some in Korea are selling invitation passes for the app online, with prices reaching as high as $15 last week, proving that there is significant demand.

Stars such as Taeyeon of Girls' Generation and singer Zion T have rooms on the app to communicate with users.

The popularity may be attributable to the spread of COVID-19 as people spent more time indoors and more time alone. Also, it appeals to tech-savvy Korean users who are keen to keep up with the latest trends.

However, some celebrities have openly criticized the app, claiming it boosts authoritarianism and divides people.
