In K-Pop, the Big 3 companies—SM, YG, and JYP—are known for having idols who are both very talented and good-looking.
These things aren’t unique to these companies, but they are known for having a lot of trainees and only letting the best ones make their debuts.
On October 31, Netizens talked about why they did think ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo wasn’t picked up by one of the “big three” entertainment agencies, like SM, JYP, or YG Entertainment, despite his stunning looks and body.
On the online community discussion board, a user wrote, “With just his looks and body, he could have easily joined NCT, TREASURE, or Stray Kids, even if he didn’t have any talent.”
In response, some of the comments from netizens were as follows:
Not because he couldn’t go, but because Fantagio took him.
It’s like taking someone hostage. Before he realized what was going on, Fantagio was able to convince him and quickly take him in.
If he had gone to SM, he might not have been able to go to college, which would have been terrible. I think that people with their own skills should go to a middle-sized company.
Even actor Won Bin left the company SM.
Even if you say he isn’t good at anything, his looks make him a star.
God bless SM, he didn’t mess up his face. If he’d gone to SM, he would have done something more to his face for sure.
I can’t really think of anybody else besides Suzy and Cha Eun Woo whose looks alone really made a big deal.
I hope Fantagio is nice to Cha Eun Woo. I would treat Cha Eun Woo like my own son if I were the CEO of Fantagio.
Instead of joining the NCT, it would be better for him to go to a middle-sized company.
