Indie idol confesses to her dark past [TRIGGERING: RAPE, SELF HARM, CHILD ABUSE/PEDO, SUICIDE]



An underaged female idol wrote a blog post recently about how she had been raped, also partook in underage drinking, smoking, money-borrowing, and compensation dating. She alleged, “I was forced into his car and then raped.”

This has caused quite a stir on the internet…

The idol in question is Miaan. On April 6th, she wrote a blog entry about what she had experienced thus far as an idol, and that blog entry has been the point of some heated discussions online about the state of the entertainment industry.

[TRIGGERING: RAPE, SELF HARM, CHILD ABUSE/PEDO, SUICIDE]

Miaan wrote about her upbringing, her loneliness, and her experiences in being the victim of bullying. In middle school, she committed self-harm by cutting her wrists because she felt life had no meaning. At the same time, her relationships with her friends also deteriorated.

After that, she fell in love with a host, and borrowed money for him under her name, and was forced to prostitute herself as a result. She suffered a mental breakdown, and she started looking for other means of income through cell-phone dating sites. In writing, the men promised to lend her the money, but in reality, she’d meet up with them and they’d have their way with her, going as far as raping her.

After such a shocking confession, her management agency fired her.

It's ridiculous that they fired her. I'm actually really curious how her readers took it and if they are being supportive of her.

On another note though, I wasn't aware that the entire country of Japan fired her.

What she did was illegal and thus reflects poorly on the company. Although it's sad, Japan will decide pretty much 99.9% in favor of image/reputation over all else. Obviously it was her management's doing, but I have no doubt that any company would have tried to fire her over this idol or non-idol.

That said, I'm sure she either wanted to get out of the industry and made it public on purpose with that specific intent (not to say it's fake) and/or knew it was highly possible she would be fired but still wanted to tell her story anyways.
