In the glamorous world of entertainment, there's a thing called nepotism, where famous families help their relatives one way or another become stars. This happens a lot in the entertainment world, where people quickly become famous because of their famous family members.
This also happens in K-pop. Some of these stars have family members who are already famous or already in the industry and they are usually labeled as "nepo babies."
These K-pop stars learn a lot from their experienced family members, which helps them become good at what they do. Having famous family members can make it easier for them to become famous too. Sometimes, people notice them before they officially start their music careers because of their family connections.
But becoming a big star isn't just about having famous relatives. These K-pop stars must be amazing at what they do and make people love their music and performances. It's their talent and passion that makes them special, not just their family connections.
Although some of these K-pop idols had some help, what makes them shine is how much they love what they do and how good they are at it.
