The Korean pop mature system is well known around the world, and its industrially produced idol groups such as BTS and Blackpink have not only taken Asia by storm, but have even swept Europe and the US, with their works topping iTunes, YouTube and other charts and even breaking records. However, in recent years, Korean idol culture has been severely criticized for its negative news, such as fans collecting money to make charts, social media wars, and data falsification by program groups to make money. At present, studies on Korean idol industry are limited to gender perspective and international cultural exchange perspective, but rarely examine its mature mechanism, industrialized operation and mass production from a critical perspective. This paper attempts to analyze Korean pop culture from the perspective of cultural industry and finds that Korean pop not only presents various characteristics of cultural industry theory, but also has a negative impact on Korean society. This paper will be beneficial to supplement the lack of cultural criticism on the research of idol-making industry.
