LA Times: K-pop's innocent image is shattered by the 'Burning Sun' scandal
LA Times: "The scandal has revealed a sordid underbelly in the strictly mediated industry,where
#Kpop stars’ personal lives are rigorously controlled by their record labels,with no room for dissent or screw-ups"
LA Times: "South Korean news outlets published text messages allegedly from
#Seungri, one of the nightclub’s board members, asking staff to hire prostitutes for investors"
LA Times: "This is a whole other beast, since it's not about one man's bad temper or sexual assault, but almost an industrialized state of things where many powerful men were enabled and bolstered up by their status to partake in illegal activities."
LA Times: "Hidden-camera footage in public restrooms and other intimate settings has become an epidemic in the country."
