I would hope that Star Empire is not the norm
22 September 2016 | by carl-caseySee all my reviews

Assuming the editing provides an accurate picture, I would hope that Star Empire is not the norm. we see almost no positive reinforcement from a bunch of men (and one female producer) constantly criticizing a group of young women, which, by the way, comes off as extremely sexist. tough love needs to be balanced with sincere positive feedback. 9muses might be a special case because they, apparently, were mainly models before joining, not necessarily singers and dancers. other bands might have an easier time achieving perfection, such as Mamamoo, f(x), Red Velvet, Gfriend, Lovelyz, Cosmic Girls, 4Minute, etc, because many of their members, I assume, spent years in middle school and high school studying music, singing, dance, and performance before even thinking about going for gold. It would be interesting to get an inside view of Rainbow Bridge (Mamamoo, Yangpa), Woolim (Lovelyz) or Starship Entertainment (Cosmic Girls, Sistar, Monsta X) for comparison, e.g., I suspect Rainbow Bridge treats Mamamoo in a much more reinforcing environment. Why? Just look at the positive, confident, genuinely joyous performances Mamamoo consistently delivers. I can't imagine there's any way Mamamoo could pull this off in a Star Empire environment. Of course, it helps to be exceptionally talented singers to begin with.
