I think the health effects section should be removed, this is ridiculous, you cannot make assumptions based on a few cited examples, these could have happened anywhere to a fan of any celebrity, fans stand in long queues for Justin Bieber concerts as well despite bad wheater, so what's the fuss? The article exaggerates simple happenings. --小龙 (Timish) # xiǎolóng de xìnxiāng 10:22, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

If the BBC source should be included, let me summarize the text: "In a story detailing the underworld of the Korean entertainment business, detailing claims of slave contracts and exploitation of young stars, the BBC pointed out that Korean bands, household names at home, have strong ambitions of success in Japan, Europe and the US, with the largest agency recently holding it's first concert in Europe". Of course, holding its first concert abroad is evidence of lack of breakthrough and wide reception, not the opposite. Oh and Time? Online poll are the most unreliable, but if this must be included, it must clearly be stated that Time in no way shape or form named Rain as the most influential person in the world, anonymous online readers with unknown whereabouts did. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:44, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Korean pop idolKorean idol – The Korean page refers to this type of artist and group as just an "idol" just like a Japanese idol. Both the Korean and Japanese pages of each idol, (Korean and Japanese page of "Korean idol" and Korean and Japanese page of "Japanese idol") don't use the word pop and I think it would be good to change the name of the page to just "Korean idol" since that's what they use in Korea and "idol" is also the term that is used in Asia in general to refer to this type of singer from any Asian country. The term "idol group" is also used in both countries to refer to their respective pop group singers as well. It's also used here: List of South Korean idol groups. This change would also be similar to K-Pop, J-Pop and J-Rock, K-Rock. JAMendoza (talk) 02:50, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

Support. I've seen idol used in some Korean media so I think the change is good. Alexaclova112330 (talk) 06:14, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
Supoort. I've rarely, if ever, seen "pop idol" used and "Korean idol" is much more commonly used, so WP:COMMONNAME comes into play here. Plus, it's quite common to see some idols release hip-hop tracks (G-Dragon/Bigbang, BTS, Block B) so the name isn't totally accuarte. Nyantatata ^-^ (Say hi!) 22:37, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
