Author: AprilStarr Pexers Write-Ups on FB
The two years break from work in dramas, film, musical or theatrical stage and other allied departments mean being out of the limelight.or spotlight. Whether it is admitted or not the fear of being replaced by another star waiting at the wings is very real. Equally unsettling is returning to regain the once dominated place where the competition has become very stiff. The dream factories are busy producing young performers saturating the domestic market where Kpop idols have already made inroads in dramas and films as well.
In South Korea, where children early on have their eyes trained on becoming performers, don’t have a dearth of naturally talented kids that did not even need many years of performer’s schooling. Watch any Korean drama on any given day and you will be witness to naturally endowed thespians’ abilities rivaling if not surpassing those of the adults.
The entertainment field to say the least is getting crowded with the return of overseas South Koreans to the homeland as competitors with the extra added skills in foreign language specially English. Yet thanks to the spread of Hallyu to various countries, actors, singers, models, directors and their work are exported thus expanding the playing field.
Some actors opt to render their 2 years Military Service when still young and not yet ascended the ladder of success. Others postpone doing it for a number of excuses such as work in progress, schooling or even feigning illness to get exempted. Several actors were caught using methods to dodge the draft.
Celebrity observers take note of the departures and arrivals of the stars. Some stars are still in the the radar of drama watchers and movie/ concert goers if they were in good standing when they left. It is always good to be favored and remembered by entertainment bloggers and media to easily slip back to prominence. An aggressive talent agency to secure jobs for them are pluses,too. Equally important is to be wanted by producers and directors for their next assignments. Some performers in fact are able to land comebacking projects even while in MS.
What if the celebrity is a forgettable one, or involved in some scandal when they left? Maybe they will need a makeover or new packaging when they return.It is not impossible to do a fresh start or to reinvent the new and improved version of the former celebrity. They usually start making the rounds of talk shows to announce they are back for business.If the promo is right,they soon will be swamped with casting offers.Their fanbase also help drumbeat their return with fanmeets or other forms of get together to announce their star’s availability.
The newly released males from MS usually are physically robust, goodlooking, fresh and eager to circulate again. Some are very successful reintegrating right away. Other’s re entry sometimes take a while. The important thing is to be remembered well, leave memorable works and to be missed.
Finally,the fans are playing bigger roles nowadays to assure the places of their admired celebrities. They are the supporters, the rah rah mostly girls, campaigners and organizers of events for anniversaries in showbiz, birthdays and other activities such as sendoffs and welcomes, projects and others. The celebrity must be in touch with their fanbase though others prefer a quiet time for departure and return.
