*’5-seconds singers’: There has been news reports discussing the recent criticisms of Korean idol singers as ’5-seconds singers’, only needing to sing 5~6 seconds when they perform on stage. This is mostly due to the growing idol group member count. The reports also zoom into the point that idol groups are not made just to sing these days, they have to act and appear on variety shows and advance to other overseas music markets. It is no longer the same as looking at them as just ‘singers’. The article, in fact, quotes Korean idol singers to be at a standard higher than those in other Asian countries.
