The princess of Korean entertainment is a 22-year-old K-pop idol named Suzy Bae. She is universally beloved in such an uncomplicated way that it’d be impossible to identify an analog in America, where we can only agree that we will never agree on anything, ever.

In Korea, a performer’s job is still very much oriented around customer service — thus, the more popular you are, the more accessible and fan-friendly you should be. (Whereas the inverse seems true in America.) So there is a lot of Suzy material to go around. I could imagine a Suzy channel that includes, but is not limited to, music videos of her ex-group Miss A; film appearances (modern and period); TV appearances in dramas (modern and period), variety shows, and guerrilla dating bits; award acceptance speeches; baseball first pitches, both home and abroad; highlights from archery competitions; slightly creepy iso-cams of live performances; choreographed dance practices; and 10 minutes of random fan interaction at a signing.
