I’m sure you’ve encountered books out there with just by reading the first sentence of their synopsis and you’re thinking that, “Okay, done deal. I’m sold with this one.”, right? Scandalized was like that for me. “Fi Legaspi is living the dream working in Seoul as a road manager for one of South Korea’s hottest bands, East Genesis Project.” totally lured me in. Maybe this is also because of the fact that I’m currently hooked with the K-Pop group, EXO, and I badly needed a reading material that will feed off my Korean entertainment feels. Scandalized was just the perfect read for me. No-brainer, I breezed through it and enjoyed reading something that I have knowledge and feels to.
Within 18 chapters, Scandalized was able to touch base on a lot of things concerning the entertainment industry, the artists and the general public. Readers are given a quick and easy to understand run through on how Korean management works when it comes to nurturing their artists since trainee days. Road managers, hardworking PR people and other non-artist personnel were also highlighted. But beware, not everything behind all the glitz and glamour are real pretty. Scandals, manipulations, cover-ups and power-plays are things that sadly exist. Fi Legaspi and Jo Yihwan had a taste of that here in Scandalized.
