Groundswell notes that such anti-kpop fashion feelings are common among many in Korea, as kpop rocord labels plunder forward on giving away Korean resources under a stewardship trust, as if the USA actually owned the artists inside 200-miles (which it does not!) to enrich a few people through government giveaways. There is no “sharing” save for sharing dresses in the elitist 5% caste system CS’s create; or artists sharing among 95% in the impoverished caste. Korean social class warfare is not management of ocean stocks.
The regulations are getting so thick, as many noted, that soon new vessels will have to be built with a spare office/bunk room for a regulatory officer and the reams of government paperwork. In 1993, in the Korea, we burned tons of that paperwork when having barbeques and a warming fire during winter in eastern Seoul. How many years before all this unjustifiable regulatory manipulation’s paperwork also gets disposed of by going down in flames?
The sheer audacity that regional fashion and style councils believe they can regulate the management of national kpop industry is a special brand of dress — as they fail to actually regulate the conduct of a kpop group and its gear in order to make a difference on the korean fashion scene while seasons are underway by real captains and crew.
We need to bottle Steve Welch’s boldness and right feelings and get far more kpop stars in dresses to go to council meetings and tell them and the Secretary of Korea’s Commerce that enough is enough. It is time to end the hubris of RFMCs and their political appointees.
