This, every time some paper bring up this "rigours training" I almost rolls my eyes to the back of the head, it's not accident that the best kpop vocalists get debuted basically just after they signed with company, all the vocal training take place somewhere else in more professional environment.
p.s. It's the same with Koreans working the longest hours, with only maybe 40% of that time spent on actual working.

It's becoming a global problem (the hours put in vs actual efficiency thing) but yeah the way it's incorporated into entertainment seems to be so typically Korean.
What you said is right, the powerhouse vocals and amazing dancers already showed up with their skills in their audition tapes before they even started training. And the actual success stories where idols actively get better happen after they debut, where someone who is a terrible singer/dance somehow manages to learn on the job in maybe 2 or 3 years what they inexplicably couldn't be taught in the same amount of time they were training without their crazy idol schedule!

And the saddest part is, that is because of their own initiative and effort not their agencies.
