Estrella Lin reveals the dark side of the Korean entertainment industry
August 23, 2010 by J!-ENT
Taiwan singer Estrella Lin recently wrote a book exposing her experience working in the Korean entertainment industry.
According to the publication Chosun:
In the book, Lin details how she was asked to provide sexual services and subjected to inhumane treatment. She was also asked to change her year of birth from 1980 to 1985 as she was considered too old.
Lin wrote that any popular singers in Korea, regardless of gender, are pimped for sexual services but claimed that despite being frequently asked to sleep with investors, she stubbornly refused.
Korean actress Jang Ja-yeon who took her life in 2009, wrote in a seven-page suicide letter of the dark side of the Korean entertainment industry. Jang Ja-yeon wrote that her agent had regularly beaten her and forced her to have sex with a string of VIPs, including directors, media executives and CEOs and with many entertainers in Korea having taken their lives, more and more news of the dark side of the Korean entertainment industry is being exposed.
