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.


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.

I think people are generally just expressing their outrage at how the industry obviously ignores when people like this need help or some kind of intervention as long as it generates profits.

Although I agree that she obviously can't work in these conditions and needs to be let go, the fact of the matter is that I'm sure these conditions were affecting her long before she posted this blog, the company knew it, but instead chose to stay silent, ignored, and/or exasperated her condition in order to hopefully turn a profit. Now that she's wrote this entry, her "pure" image is ruined and she got canned because she will no longer be profitable without that.

So the problem isn't the fact that she was let go, it's the fact she was only let go when the company could no longer squeeze anything out of her like a disposable thing instead of stepping in earlier to try to help or letting her go in order for her to get help. There was a better way to handle this than how they did.
