‘Aidol’ (아이돌), it is the Korean pronunciation of the English word “idol” and denotes the good-looking and systematically trained all-round entertainer in the Korean media and in mainstream pop music. As a product of Korean entertainment companies, the aidol basically resembles its counterpart in Anglo-American pop music (“pop idol”) and in Japanese pop music (aidoru) although showing significant differences in regard to specific local contexts of production and consumption.
