With idol groups JYJ and KARA facing drawn-out disputes with their respective agencies, veteran singer Insooni has decided to give some advice to young idol group members.
“Teams are meant to be broken up and if you aren’t happy with your agency, you have to fight,” said Insooni. ”But there are few things you should think about first.”
While appearing on a music program, the star explained that she’s often sought out by her industry juniors. “The majority of singers who come and say hi in my dressing room are idols. I always tell them to remember few things.”
“When working in a group, each member holds a different opinion about their contract. Also, you have to see who really cares about you. Your first manger may care for you but your second manager may prioritize money. It’s better to fight with someone who cares for you if you have to fight with your management. You have to understand that the agency has to make money too.”
She also added, “Talk about it with either a senior or your role model. You can’t cry in front of just anyone for your troubles, but you can cry in front of your senior. Your senior understands why you are crying. Find a mentor like that.”
Insooni reflected, “I also debuted as part of the Hwe Sisters, but our team broke up in two years.” She stressed, “You have to work hard until you accomplish your goal.”
