Alice’s View on 'Lookism'

I would like to share my thought about ‘lookism’. This word might be unfamiliar to some people. ‘Lookism’ is a term used to refer to the positivestereotypes, ‘prejudice, and preferential treatment given to physically attractive people, or more generally to people whose appearance matches cultural preferences” ─ Wikipedia

First, I need to talk about an aspect of human beings before my view on ‘lookism’. Human beings are used to evaluating people by what they see from outer part in the fixed frame. Moreover, they are brainwashed easily by trend, fad and anything mass media, society, cultural system generate. It is same fact that human beings believe green is green, 1 is 1, etc; and religious people believe only their God is true and have a boundary against other religions; major people in a group say she is the standard of beauty, the rest people in a group become brainwashed and used to thinking she is the standard of beauty, too. I think brain function of human beings gets programmed by cultural, society system and whatever systems in world generate. It is turning in the same way again, again in the circle.

Regarding ‘lookism,’ numerous people in Korea have plastic surgery to look better because they have an unnecessary inferiority; even get obsessed by their vain conceit to look perfect. If they cannot afford to have plastic surgery, they borrow money from private moneylenders, etc.

Public places like subways and any crowded places are covered with numerous advertisements of cosmetic surgery. I do feel an impulse whenever I see advertisements, “I want to undergo cosmetic surgery and look beautiful like women in advertisements”. How pathetic thought I have that I want to have cosmetic surgery like artificial, vain looking women in advertisements and get allured by materialistic advertisements seeking money. In fact, these unnecessary inferiority and vain conceit are input by wrong society system dyeing with materialism and spoiled aspects of view.

I still remember some guest on TV program made a remark last year, “numerous people have cosmetic surgery nowadays, so why don’t we make cosmetic surgery as a cultural business rather than criticize on that? Then, we’d better make foreigners in other countries come to Korea for cosmetic surgery so that Korea can make money.” I was dumbfounded by her shallow comment, but more stupid thing is… a T.V host gave credits to her comment. The reason many people want to have cosmetic surgery is, in fact, from their inferiority based on vain conceit; and people’s inferiority is planted by the wrong society system that tends to evaluate people by what they see from outer part rather than inner part. If anyone thinks cosmetic surgery should be a cultural business, it only boosts wrong society system and people who put weight on materialistic things from outer part.

However, AGAIN~!!!  
I have to give my view on reality of entertainment industry regarding ‘lookism’ because ordinary people are so much easily enthusiastic and affected by entertainers and mass media. I see the mass media often gives more credits to beautiful appearance rather than true ability from sincere mindset. Consequently, chances are often given to people who have beautiful, artificial appearance on vain conceit rather than true capable people with good & firm mindset in entertainment industry. In result, entertainers tend to feel pressure on their appearance and focus on how look better than how improve their ability in work. It looks like entertainers compete for their appearance rather than true ability from sincere mindset. 

Therefore, spoiled entertainers on vain conceit who don’t have true ability and sincere mindset can get wealth and chances easily in the entertainment industry if they have pretty good looking, money, connection, full of arrogance wrapping with fame. There are wrong, arrogant, spoiled entertainers a lot living upon fame and van conceit without true ability and sincere mindset. It is like giving delicious cakes to materialistic, arrogant pigs lying on the gold bed in the entertainment industry. Although there are true entertainers as an artist, those sincere people’s portion is smaller than spoiled entertainers depending on their appearance and vain conceit. Even wrong entertainers gain huge enormous money without true effort and ability because the wrong system based on ‘lookism and fame’ spoils entertainers and entertainment business. Consequently, the balance in entertainment industry is broken, important priority is getting forgotten, and systems are getting spoiled. Most of all, this corrupt, spoiled system influences society system, too.

Needless to say, people who tend to be enthusiastic and influenced by wrong entertainers and mass media help corruption, and spoil system because an audience eventually gives fame and wealth to entertainers. An audience tends to be easily brainwashed and influenced by what the mass media generate whether it is right or not. Human beings usually cannot see the truth. They just follow it like a puppet on the string. Audience should not be a slave of mass media; they have to be an owner of mass media. The reason I often give an example of mass media is, it is getting very powerful to influence people and society. Mass media is one of sources that swirls society system and even brainwashes people in society.

I don’t try to criticize ‘lookism’ or cosmetic surgery stuff. I am criticizing about the wrong system which makes wrong things right and superior. I strongly feel that people need to cut the string binding them to be controlled by mass media. People should try to hold wisdom to see what is right and what is wrong.

After all, true ability is from good and sincere mindset, not from appearance. People’s uniqueness, true ability, creativity, sincerity, integrity and humility should be priority rather than ‘lookism’ and materialism. People including me should not be a slave of wrong people, wrong system and temptation in world; we have to be an owner of them.

Additionally, The more richer and popular people are, the more humble they should be not to lose their spirit to devil's temptation. When people are humble, at least they are able to see themselves.

Alice's 2014 Craft Work

I would like to share my craft work I have done in 2014'. But first, I want to start with my personal feeling I had to go through before jumping into my 2014' craft work.

A new year is already around corner. So many things have been going around me in my life.
I could catch what has been going around me by my high sensitivity without hearing and seeing. Consequently, I also had to suffer from hurt feelings by ugly, shallow people and situation. Nevertheless, I have kept going on with my study, project, and task, although I am in an awkward situation. 

I know I made so many people angry by my comments through somebody; but I wanted to shout out to people what my high sensitivity and intuition caught up against wrong things including corrupt, rotten, shallow people and society while I do my task hard I have given to myself.

Some people mocked at me because I don't seem to do anything but talking about specific people, society, and my feeling through somebody. People might ask me you hurt people by your comments, too. But I truly could see rotten corruption from some specific people and society with my clear mind, so I had to take advantage of this awkward situation to speak up, while so many people have underestimated, criticized and mocked at me. 

Even, my personal information and private stuff, almost everything have been disclosed publicly. But I close my eyes about all disclosure about me that makes me even ashamed so that I can speak up to corrupt, rotten people who have to feel ashamed, too. My all comments on specific people are not from my bad intention or personal emotion at all. No matter, I had to speak up about them on behalf of weak, vulnerable people in society; otherwise, I knew rotten people never be aware of what kind of people they are, and wrong things and systems in society won't change forever. I need to step up with issues.

What I can do in my situation that I cannot really open my door bravely? Even, I am not sure I can ever forgive people because I have been so much hurt by wrong rumors, harsh critics, mockery, misunderstanding on me that are not true. Those are truly different aspect from what I had to shout to rotten corrupt people and systems my strong intuition have caught throughout years. 

People really don't know what my high sensitivity is like because they have never been in my shoes to feel me. So many people have made big mistakes to me indiscreetly.

Regarding my comments on specific people and situations, I would never regret what I did and spoke toward bad people and society. And I would never feel sorry to them who were on my black list because I did right things, and they are people who have to feel ashamed of themselves and no more luck to them any more.


Finally, I would like to show my craft work and stationery stuff I design. 
But I made so many things this year of  2014' as last year, while I had to go through so much hurt feelings. 

So I just link the each site that my passion and effort has. Truly, I can say my work has my passion, love, and sincerity. I hope you enjoy it.

Alice's Art Therapy

I would like to introduce my art therapy that I can analyze my mental state.

Recently, I found some of music I can enjoy, but colors of music I indulge in are so different respectively. So I decide to paint what I feel while I listen to separate music so that I can analyze my mental state based on art and music. I think what I paint on canvas, and what kind of music I listen to express my emotion in my mind and who I am.

However, I like YouTube stars “ThePianoGuys” & “Lindsey Stirling.” I enjoy watching their performance on YouTube. But I know my taste will soon change to Christmas music because I like Christmas song and mood.

In addition, I painted on a tablet by using Corel painter X, instead of actual canvas and paints.


♥ ThePianoGuys "Christina Perri-A Thousand Years"

The tranquil forest scene in the video makes me think I used to be there a long time ago for some reason, maybe in my childhood dream...? Anyway, I wanted to express my feeling on the painting that I am in beautiful nature and fresh air, and dancing in peace. I expressed tranquil, calm happiness from pureness on my painting. But I know my painting looks a bit lonely because a girl is dancing alone and only one home is on the painting. Anyway I didn't like a busy scenery in my painting; or I might feel my limit to paint more complicated scenery.












ThePianoGuys Ants Marching/Ode to Joy”

Recently, I had some kind of angers in my mind. But when I decided to stay in positivity and forgive something; all of sudden, I felt some big stone in my mind was got ridden of. Then, unconsciously I kept listening to this music below. When I listened to this music, I felt the music seemed to congratulate me on solving problems in my mind. So I wanted to express harmony in angels’ ensemble and rainbow in the sunny day in my painting.









Lindsey Stirling Stars Align”

Music video shows universe and a girl playing a violin. This music motivated me to paint mysterious universe and also talk about my theory I have kept deep inside my mind. But I don't get too much into my theory, but sometimes.

First, before I go into my theory, I would like to point out that you would better be open minded to listen to me instead of locking yourself in the boring, small fixed frame. I think people only try to believe and accept what they used to learn and be brainwashed since they were born. So human beings are very much used to thinking “one is one, red is red”. People are unable to see beyond what they see, hear, believe and learn. Somehow, I think human beings are like a puppet on the string in the small frame.

My theory is that there are a lot of black holes in universe as we all know, but I think there must be white holes beyond black holes, too. There might be advanced civilization in another side of universe. Moreover, they can reach any planets with their advanced technology which makes them stand extremely high pressure when they go through black holes.

I even think God we used to know in our bible could be aliens from another side of universe. Long time ago, ancestors on earth were so ignorant so they thought aliens from sky were their God who could save them.

And I think spirit is like a host, in another world, when human being dies, a “host” which we used to know as “spirit” is planted to another experimental life by aliens or disposed of in universe.

In addition, if you know my story, you will know whom I am talking about. Well… I feel like I talk with a descendant of aliens who still has a very tiny fraction of ability aliens have.

Don’t you think people depend too much on human knowledge?








Lindsey Stirling Roundtable Rival”

When I watch this music on YouTube, I want to be a woman who wins over bank robberies in video. Moreover, powerful beats, strong sound and a battle in this music video makes me want to trample upon bad people I hate, and I become a winner over them. At least I can imagine I become a winner over bad, rotten people my high sensitivity has caught, while I listen to this music.

In that respect, I like rock music which has strong beats and sound because I feel power deep inside me for a moment.







Why don’t you have your free time on one of weekends to analyze your mental state by drawing with music you are currently stuck in? If you are not really good at drawing, you can express your feeling over music with line and dot; then, your drawing will tell you what you have in your mind and where you are in life.

P.S: By the way, have you well enjoyed my private information and some of my habits or pattern disclosed by I.A in Korea? Haven't you evaluated me within your limit? (You know what I am talking about if you know me)

Alice’s Effective System & Space

I am refreshed because it is fall season. In fact, I was exhausted by hot, humid, and suffocating summer, so I welcome the beauty of the fall such as cool air, colorful maple, and autumn mood. Besides, my favorite Christmas is approaching after autumn, so I try to enjoy all those blessings.

Anyhow, I would like to talk about how I hold myself not to go into a dark pit from negativity as well as my dolly space I can find stress free and tranquility.

I am good at organizing my space, work system, and brain. My organizing habit and system help me not to collapse or fall behind mentally and physically, although I am in an awkward situation (you know what I am talking about if you know my story)

I know many people might ask me, “Do you think your life is normal? You are alone, and you must be very lonely.” The way to find happiness and peace is different depending on people. And I try to accept the reality that I have to accommodate myself into decayed world system as long as I live in this messy world where has war, dispute, revenge, decayed competition, corruption, deceit, discrimination, unfairness, and abuse, etc.

Frankly, I cannot say I am free from what makes me feel bad, but at least I know myself and wait for an appropriate timing for a chance; moreover I trust my intuition and sense coming from high sensitivity. I try to plan, prepare and develop myself, no matter how people think of me. 

However in modern period, so many people suffer from a lot of stress and disorder. Unfortunately, many people try to find the shelter out of stress in gambling, drug addict, promiscuous sexual intercourse, smoking, alcohol, adultery, and crazy raves, etc like dumb clowns. But I really appreciate I know how to control myself not to go astray by my organizing system.

I have observed so many people for a long time in a variety of circumstances that if people are not organized, they stumble twice more than organized people in personal task, work, household and any process.

Moreover, unorganized and messy people including hoarders have their own issues like loneliness, excessive stress, health problems, and mental disorder. Conversely, too much organized people must suffer from an obsession and stress. Therefore, moderate level to make things function would be better.

When it comes to working environment, all of work is related and connected one form or another after all. But if some persons are unorganized with what they do, they can affect and screw up other people’s work and system in any ways. Frankly, if I am an owner of company, I would hire an organized and sincere person rather than a clever but unorganized and messy person. If I am not organized, I would stumble easily with lousy mental system and it will take multiple times for me to process my task.

Also, I have observed many people, who are unorganized and messy, are usually very selfish or easy going person. And they don’t really care about other people around them. Moreover, they feel everything is fine with them if their unorganized way satisfies them, no matter they offend people or not.

Reasons I appreciate my organizing habit and system are as below.

     ●  It reduces possible forgetfulness and boosts my memory
     ●  I don’t have to waste time for search
     ●  It helps me under control regarding my projects, budget and expense
     ●  Organizing system and process boost my energy and passion
     ●  It develops my creativity and brain function
     ●  It holds me not to go astray or fall behind

In that respect, I would like to introduce some basic examples how I organize myself mentally and physically, although I already posted some methods 2 years ago. I would like to emphasize that “record” is the basic step to organize brain before action. It is the same concept that when people want to start a business, they have to organize their brain and information, and make a document of business plan to reduce any possible mistakes, then follow it through. Usually people acquire a lot of information daily, so they should prepare some space in brain to accept more information by "record" instead of trying to memorize everything.                             


   Calendar 

I refer to my calendar every day. Many people use Google Calendar, App or binder planner stuff, but I have used a calendar I made with excel program for a long time. By the way, I carry App in my smart phone to check brief calendar or schedule, and I use my excel calendar for detail stuff and archiving purpose. The reason I use my excel calendar is as below.

         ●  It is easy to see and find records in calendar
ü  I do color coding by events records pop up easily by color code and CTR+F
ü  The file has 12 sheets from January to December in Excel easy to look through events monthly for my reference.
         ●  It helps my memory and decision
ü  I record all of expiration dates and any important future events in a new calendar whenever New Year starts.
         ●  It is easy to archive I am a person who refers to previous calendars




   Planner

I get motivation from a planner. I make plans and motivate myself to carry out my projects, so I can boost my passion and energy rather than being a knucklehead.

Currently, I use my planner I made with MS Excel, but I would like to introduce my new template for a planner I created with MS Access Program last month. 

When I open a file, a small window pops up as below so that I can choose a year. I also archive my yearly planners so that I can refer to previous years.



Once I choose a year, a related form opens as below.

                      I scroll down the orange box on left to choose the month I want to work
                        on or use arrow icons to go to a next (previous) page.

                    ●  Left side is plans I accomplish by categories
                        Right side is my goals on same categories as left side
                 
                    ●  I can refer to a small calendar at the bottom




   Accounting

I am under control for my expense and budget with my accounting system. So far, it works so well. You can refer to the previous post regarding my expense control ─ http://aliceinreallife.blogspot.kr/2014/05/alices-expense-control.html


    Address Book

I don’t collect business cards or any paper stuff; instead, I refer to address book sorted by categories in my access file. I can find any information fast and I don't have to rummage through unorganized information about person or business. 

I would like to introduce my address book I created with MS Access Program. 
P.S:) If I have a family I live with, I would print it out and put it in the home management binder, so everybody can share it)

When I open my address book, a small window pops up, and let me choose which category I want to open. My categories are as below.

●  Relationship such as family, friends…
●  Business such as vendors, doctors, etc




Once I choose a category, the form related to that category opens.

●  I scroll down the pink box on left side, so I can find any certain category or 
    company in an alphabetical order.

●  I can type any business name or category for a shortcut in the pink box on  
    right side




   Cook Recipe

I don’t really enjoy cooking, but I have to cook to feed myself. So I need recipes. That is the reason I made cooking recipe file with MS Word as below. I usually search what I want to cook on Internet, and record & save them in computer & the binder by categories such as Asian, Western, and Korean. So I don’t have to purchase cook recipe book stuff. Once I get really used to cooking some recipe, I discard that recipe in my file because I am ready to step up with advanced cook recipes. “Record” is all about helping my memory.

Cook Recipe in MS Word 
●  1st page  "Contents"
●  small thumbnails on left side, so I can go to the page directly without scrolling down





Cook Recipe binder → I divide recipes by categories and tabs





   My organized space

Lastly, I would like to introduce my home I manage to keep clean and neat. My space gives me not only cozy feeling, but also function. I would like to share some photos of my home. Frankly these are not really different from photos I shared two years ago, but I still like my touch everywhere in my home because there are my efforts.

Alice's Shouting on Corruption

I would like to talk about some aspect of corrupt capitalism in the world. I want to be frank with my thought on this topic and shout to corrupt society to awaken and see what is really going wrong with the very best example of the entertainment industry.


Capitalism originally started from good intentions and competition, but it has been getting so much corrupt and rotten. Consequently, the structure of capitalism has become a shape of the pyramid rather than balanced. It doesn't mean that rich people who have big wealth and belong to the top part of the pyramid succeeded from their pure efforts, capability, sincerity and integrity. In fact, some (or many) portions of rich people accumulated their wealth from dishonesty, lack of virtue, corruption, wrong business management which is seemingly successful, and trampling people, while sincere and honest people work so hard for a living on their own pure efforts and integrity. This corrupt capitalism also reflects imperfect human being, though.

I would like to give some examples with the entertainment industry to show the corruption of capitalism. I think the entertainment world (showbiz) represents corruption and unstable equilibrium in capitalism in some points. I have to tell you first before I go deeply into this topic that I live in Korea, so I have felt so much unfairness and incongruity in the entertainment industry in Korea, even though Korea entertainment business keeps growing up in a market economy. So my examples are mostly based on Korea situations. In fact, it is not only the problem in Korea, but also other countries, too.

However, I admit the entertainment industry becomes very important role to lead culture and contribute to economy growth and status. So we cannot ignore the entertainment industry.

Since the entertainment industry has been so much growing up, it also requires better quality management system, systematic strategy for improvement, qualified & competent directors, staff as well as entertainers, and transparent investment as well as fair distribution of pay & profits. All elements are needed to be in one place to produce great outcomes.

First and foremost, I want to point out that the entertainment industry is the place where art and business coexist and they should be balanced. But the balance between art and business is getting collapsed by unfairness and incongruity. Consequently, the entertainment industry is following the route of corruption of capitalism.

As an aspect of business, big entertainment management companies and production companies only pursuing a huge profit monopolize market; accordingly, it is very hard for people who pursue a work of art and true ability & passion to get a chance in the market monopolized by big major companies.  

For example; films invested huge amount of money by big major production companies occupy the market; conversely, valuable films as a work of art produced by minor production companies hardly survive in the market monopolized by big major companies. Also, sponsors who invest money in film production look for big major production companies and intervene too much in the process of production; and they often block directors’ capability and ideas because investors only pursue huge profits like gambling, so they ask directors to follow a style of Hollywood blockbusters. Consequently, investors’ taste always comes first and directors and staff have to be a kind of slaves for investors and production companies. For that reason, many capable directors waiting for a chance in a long line have lack of chances to show their ability and ideas; moreover, many capable directors have to be disappeared even before displaying their ability and ideas in this industry. Accordingly, investments and productions tend to lean to one side rather than balance in the market. Besides, big major entertainment management companies and production companies abuse their authority and power in the market.

Also, entertainers who belong to big management companies have more chances to get jobs and success because big management companies almost monopolize the entertainment market. Since entertainers are kind of products in the market, management companies put all efforts to wrap their products with fake images and life to display them in the market and draw people’s attention to them. In some or many cases, there is bribery stuff going on to sell their products in the market. Moreover, there are wrong affairs secretly going on like sex scandals between corrupt & rich sponsors and entertainers because management companies cannot invest money to adorn each entertainer they contract to sell in the market, so entertainers like actresses or singers get private rich sponsors for their expense. Consequently, many talented, passionate entertainers who don’t belong to major companies or sponsors have to suffer from lack of chances, hunger and poverty. Wealth, chance, and luck are inclined to specific people (celebrities) who are wrapped by fake images and life made for commercial purpose and supported by big management companies and private rich sponsors in some cases.

Needless to say, there are many talented and competent entertainers, directors, and staff who are ready to devote their talents, ideas and passion into this field, but chances are always taken by people who have authority and power, and they are sacrificed by unfair situations and unequal distribution. In addition, weak & vulnerable common people are sacrificed by the mass media looking for baits for their benefits, too.

However, if I make a list of all elements investors and production companies need to prioritize for the production of films, it could be as below.


              good scenario / contents
              good director & producer
              firm plan & management skill throughout the whole process of film production
              sincere & passionate & talented actors and actresses
              competent & sincere staff
              marketing (actually, it is very important, but I put it in the last place)

Budget needs to be distributed fairly according to priority listed above. But the problem is a “balance.” Balance is often off in the entertainment business, especially when it comes to ridiculously huge salaries for famous actors and actresses whether they have true ability or not. Investors and production companies have wrong thoughts that popular actors and actresses can make films succeed by their fame, so these wrong thoughts make the structure of the entertainment industry broken. Actually, a successful outcome is from a combination of all elements. I want to point out that actors and actresses are only contract employees or one of elements in production. Famous actors and actresses should not be treated like an owner of a big company. The thing is there are many actors and actresses who play each role in film and they are as important as leading roles in film; in fact, leading roles can be saved and enhanced by them. Furthermore, there are many staff who stay all night to work, too. The successful outcome can finally come out due to a combination of all elements listed above and a “balance.” Rewards and honors should not be given to only leading roles, and any productions should not depend on famous celebrities who are paid huge amount of salaries because ridiculously huge salaries for famous actors and actresses collapse balance and fair competition in the entertainment industry.

I think the entertainment industry spoils entertainers by their wrong system; for example, some Korean actress gained fame so fast by her attractive appearance, but her acting skill was poor (lack of analysis and in-depth expression on her role, etc) Nevertheless, she was cast in some TV drama (soap opera) as a leading role with very high salary in contrast with her ability, but she ran away in the middle of the drama production due to the reason she was so tired and she didn't like the directing style of the producer while other actors and actresses worked so hard without complaints. After a big controversy, she ended up coming back to her work and finished the drama. Eventually, the drama failed. I believe one of factors the drama failed was a poor mindset of her who played a leading role.

Last time, Korea had an incident that the director committed a suicide because his epic drama failed, even though he invested a lot of money in this epic drama. After his epic drama was finished, he was sued by actors and actresses who played general and walk-on roles because he couldn't pay them at all while he paid huge salaries to leading roles. It showed that he could have paid salaries to other actors and actresses who sued against him, if money was distributed to the right place and right amount; moreover, he didn't have to be driven to the corner by the result if he didn't make mistakes on budget and marketing plan at the very beginning.

Also, some famous celebrities have selfish conditions on contract whenever they are cast in dramas or movies, etc. They list down conditions on contract at their own convenience that they don’t really care about other staff, although they receive huge salaries as well as huge incentives. For example, they request additional huge incentive on top of their huge salary, time limit of their work, limit of their scene or the scope of acting, using a pinch hitter if there are hard performances, etc. They think they are a king or queen of the world.

And some famous celebrities abuse drugs or cause social problems because they have been spoiled and rotten by the wrong system in the entertainment industry as well as fame and wealth they got easily. Nobody even tries to discipline or advise them. They are just left in a dark pitfall come with fame, success and wealth from devil.

And some celebrities brag about their huge wealth on TV. What a snob!!!! They are like a slave of money who live upon vain conceit and pursue only money and fame instead of shedding their passion and effort into a work of art. As a matter of fact, it is like a trend among celebrities to purchase buildings to add to their wealth. Do they do some kind of speculation in real estate? Even, the mass media compares celebrity couples with their real estate and wealth whether they can level with each other by their wealth; for example, “he has the building worth of $$$ and she has the building worth of $$$; therefore, they are a great couple.” “This actor’s family is so rich, his father’s job is blah, blah, his mother is blah, blah, and his brother is blah, blah... his uncle is blah, blah....; therefore, he is from a rich family background.” Oh! My God!!!! What the hell? I am so disappointed with this snobbish, disgusting society. What a pathetic human being!!!!!

Anyhow, entertainers & celebrities must be evaluated by their real ability, sincerity and passion, not attractive & artificial look like mannequin, wealth and fame. What people believe about their stars could be fake images made by mass media and marketing artificially & commercially in the entertainment industry. People should not be brainwashed by mass media. We should not applaud to celebrities who are haughty and live on vain conceit, and collapse fair market competition by their ridiculously huge salaries. Entertainers should not forget that they are an artist before “business”. Times have changed, so the entertainment industry should know what they have to focus on and develop for good outcomes from now on.

However, entertainers are public figures and affect people so much, though. Many of young generation look up to celebrities and dream of their future through celebrities. Also, they are brainwashed not only by society system and environment, but also by the mass media easily. In another word, they follow what celebrities show publiclyex: their style, life, attitude, sense of value, etc. For example, many celebrities have cosmetic surgery and pursue the thin body shape; consequently, many of young generation undergo cosmetic surgery to have an artificial look and even try to lose weight to have a thin body like celebrities, although they have very standard body shape and look. Also, many people follow celebrities’ style, fashion, life style, too. It means people are affected and brainwashed by mass media so easily. Therefore, entertainers as public figures really need to be considerate and discreet about their behavior and mindset ― ex: humility, sincerity, effort with passion and good sense of value, etc. And celebrities should not forget that there are many young students who look up to them and try to follow them.

In Korea, many young students want to be entertainers for fame and wealth because they think they can make big money like entertainers who brag about their wealth on TV, if they become entertainers. Nowadays, institutes and schools for performing arts have many students and applicants who want to be entertainers. In this regard, students needed to be educated not only on skills and techniques, but also on personality and good mindset not to be snobbish, spoiled and lose their soul as an artist because the entertainment industry is the place that has temptation from devil, corruption, vain fame, success, and hidden snares. Some celebrities lose their soul to devil and are ruined by fame and wealth from devil.

Lastly, all of people who are engaged in the entertainment industry should have integrity, passion, and sincere soul because the entertainment industry is the place that produces a work of art on top of profits in business; in the mean time, the entertainment industry is the place that makes people rotten and corrupt because their production is like gambling, so when they succeed with their production, they can earn enormous money at one time, but human being is easily shaken by devil’s temptation. Also, entertainers who grab a success and fame can fall into a hidden snare, too. Be humble!

One more thing, the entertainment industry has to make an appropriate system to give chances not only to famous celebrities or major companies; but also to people who pursue their true dream with pure soul in this industry. I mean the entertainment industry should evaluate people including entertainers by their real ability, firm mindset and integrity. They should not evaluate people by appearance, wealth and fake fame that can disappear easily. Fame can be achieved by fake images made by marketing and mass media. In fact, any entertainers can be famous celebrities if fake images are well made by marketing, productions and mass media (good movie, drama, commercial ad, etc) So the entertainment industry would better invest money to develop good contents, good directors and equipment stuff rather than pay enormous salaries to famous entertainers who are already rotten and spoiled in mind. In addition, monopoly by big major companies should be prevented in market. Again, chances and investment should be distributed fairly to people, companies and elements in each process to produce great outcomes and prevent corruption and imbalance in market
