Do you think company is responsible for their artist' actions and behaviour ??

  • No. You weren't raised by your company neither you asked your company permission to make scandals.

    Companies release statements apologizing bc their image is directed connected with the "artist" as they are the one keeping them on the public's eyes. It's just out of courtesy as they don't want a tainted image bc of one individual.

    Or just saying sorry bc even though the said artist had a scandal, the company will keep the artist on the industry.

  • yes and no


    is the company completely 100% responsible of course not but there can be partial responsibility


    but the company teaches idols on how to be idols and is responsible for them especially if they are children thus the company bears some responsibility for their idols actions


    another way to look at it is when an employee of a company does wrong and there's s thing called vicarious liability

  • Nope - a business is not responsible for raising children - that is up to their parents - so I do not agree that even underage idols can blame the company for their misbehaviour

    secondly - most idols are adults - a workplace is not responsible or even most times aware of what their employees get up to outside of work. Now once you get charged with a crime or behavior comes to their attention which could harm their customers ---->then they are responsible for taking the necessary steps to ensure safety of colleagues and consumers..... period.

  • but i feel like sometimes, they are responsible.

    so where's the sometimes option </3

  • I voted no because that is what I lean towards more.

    However, in some cases, I do believe that environment within company can affect idol's behaviour, depending on how bad that environment is. Still, that doesn't devoid the employee/idol of responsibility for their actions.

    and what you said makes sense but I never said a company is 100% responsible and blame is totally removed from the idol themselves...what I'm saying is there may be partial responsibility...


    1. whilst underage a school has a duty of care to ensure the students are taught the right thing...if a school teaches violence and improper morals and ethics and such no student will turn out "sane" - same for kpop companies especially when a child is under their care they are responsible for teaching children not only about things like singing dance acting etc but a lot of times they are taught to be idols like how to conduct an interview and proper idol like behaviour...


    2. and again I agree in part that what happens to an employee when it's 100% removed from the nature of their work should mitigate or wholly remove the company from responsibility but there are situations such as Lucas's where (assuming things are true) that he used his position as an idol to do such things it's not 100% removed from his work


    and that's why i reiterate that it's a yes and no...do you see where I'm coming from?

  • If it's about the artist's private matter then I don't know why they should be. Maybe if the company didn't really care about the artist, the company would just kick the artist out. But if the company don't want to lose the artist then of course they would try to "save" them.

  • They are in a working relation. So unless the idol does a heinous crime, the company has responsibility for the worker when they are on the job. Which for an idol, who is a public figure, is basically 24/7. So whatever they do is a reflection on the company. That's why many companies, not only in the kpop industry, have very clear guidelines on how you should act on social media, events, presentations, etc.


    But I do think that especially in kpop, the whole trainee system with kids that most of the time are underage, that these companies should be more invested in the psychological development of these possible idols. Maybe through social classes, something that would help them grow as people.
