Pros and Cons: K-pop Idol/Trainee’s Lifestyle

As we all know the lifestyle of a K-pop Idol or a K-pop Trainee it’s far from easy, you have to deal with mainly physical, emotional, and psychological issues. You have to be determined to handle all of the training obstacles.

The most consequence of being an idol is mainly a bad diet to achieve faster the desired goal despite the idol/trainee health and bad habits such as lack of sleep, too many hours of training, and image issues that often lead them to plastic surgery.

As a trainee even after several years of training you don’t have the guarantee to debut.

How To: Improve Yourself With These Simple Habits Inspired By K-pop Idols

Everything sounds difficult on being a K-pop Idol and it is, but even if a trainee didn’t debut at all in the chosen company, it has a high chance to find other occupations.


Many of them think that they’ve lost everything by failing their dream to become an idol, but everything that they learned in the training remains all the skills and habits.

For example, many other trainees found occupations as a backup dancer or a choreographer, others became producers or actors/actresses etc....

And thanks to their developed communication skills they can travel the world to find their spot maybe in other countries.
