TV journalist Hark Joon Lee, previously best-known for reportage on refugees from North Korea, gained extraordinary access to the inner workings of K-pop agency Star Empire spent a year observing the casting, training, and attempted launch of the new girl group 9 Muses. You may be surprised to see just how "manufactured" 9 Muses are: the (very) long hours of rehearsals are beyond physically demanding, and the upper echelons of management don't seem to have any scruples about dehumanizing the girls. There are betrayals, rivalries and injuries, and there's a hushed-up sexual relationship between the manager and a band member. This is a definitive look at what keep K-pop going.
