Jennifer’s Answer

To persuade your parents to let you pursue a career as a K-pop idol, it's important to understand their concerns, show your responsibility, hone your talents, educate them about the industry, set clear goals, discuss financial plans, seek mentorship, and be patient with their acceptance. Open and respectful communication is key, as all family's dynamics are unique. Your dedication and thoughtful approach may help them see your passion for K-pop as a serious and achievable aspiration.

Jennifer recommends the following next steps:

Research Training Programs: Look into K-pop training academies or programs that could help refine your skills. Online Presence: Build a strong online presence through social media and content platforms to showcase your talent.
Networking: Connect with industry professionals and other K-pop enthusiasts to build a supportive network. Cultural Understanding: Immerse yourself in Korean culture and language to better understand the K-pop industry.
Performance Opportunities: Seek out local performance opportunities to gain experience and visibility. Health and Fitness: Maintain a healthy lifestyle, as fitness is important for performers.
Personal Branding: Develop a personal brand that aligns with your image as a future K-pop idol. Stay Informed: Keep up with the latest trends and news in the K-pop world to stay relevant.
Backup Plan: Have a backup plan in case your first choice career path takes time to materialize. Family Dialogue: Continue the dialogue with your parents, keeping them informed of your progress and plans.

Stephanie’s Answer

To persuade your parents about becoming a k-pop star, you have to share with them the steps to get to that goal. Are you going to continue to go to school? Maybe you want to pursue vocal classes and dance classes as well. As you get better and better you can work with a manager to get you into the k-pop scene. I would still pursue going to school and balance that with your goal of becoming a k-pop singer.
I hope this helps.

Michelle’s Answer

Hello, Rosie !

Wow, I feel your passion for wanting to be a K-Pop star/idol and as a person in the entertainment industry, I always feel it is necessary, honest and useful to give advice based on my knowledge and integrity. You have received some excellent advice from the other advisors. I would like to provide you with some advisory information that may help you see things from a different perspective that, in turn, may make it possible for you to perform as a K-Pop singer now.

If you speak of your desire to perform with the end result being becoming a star or an idol, that is something that you will need to reconsider. Being a star or an idol is not something that is up to you, the performer. You would be chosen by many other people who are in agreement that you can generate revenue for them as well as being above and beyond a basic level of popularity with audiences. I do understand that K-Pop is not a genre, rather a location based description, and that the industry labels the singers as Idols and Stars. This is disillusioning. It takes being in the right place at the right time around the people who can manufacture that which makes some people famous. There are trillions of very talented performers who are not famous that have excellent careers and gain income from their work. You have to reassess your motivation and intent that you have for your talent. It should not be overlooked, yet it should be realized authentically. If you are serious about singing, you can think about broadening your scope to widen your talent range, not just for K-Pop. Everyone's career path goes differently and yours will too.

Take into consideration your age, the state and town you live in, the popularity or non-popularity of K-Pop music in your town, and that when you are 18, you can pursue any career you want. Your parents only have your best interest at heart and have much life experience, so their advice is very valuable at this time in your life. You have to hear beyond their "no" and come to realize the reasons. If they haven't explained why, have a cordial conversation in which you ask them why.

For now, I advise to not give up what you love doing. Find some friends at school that like K-Pop also and form a band. Perform in school events, at fairs, in videos on You Tube - anywhere. Work at it now so that when you become 18, you will be right on top of the things you need to do for a professional singing career. I know this is disappointing because K-Pop singers are young teens, but you would need to travel very far for training and selection, have the financial means and be far away from your family to be trained and showcased. These factors may be why your parents are not in favor of this, but you can try doing it locally for now. Have fun and take it one step at a time.

I wish you all the best and sincerely hope that you are a success with your talent at school and in your local community.
