Also, don't get the wrong idea about KPop. Yes, they manufacture talent using a similar mechanism to bubblegum pop. But the work ethic, money investment, and time investment, brings about much better results. Also, the people actually creating the songs and choreography are the best in the world, since that's where the money is. There are indeed many idols who are just there because they look good, but there are still plenty with actual talents. If they can perform well, what does it matter if they were born with talent or practiced like crazy?
Also, the ones with actual talent tend to be the ones that succeed. Right now MAMAMOO is tearing it up, and just performed at SXSW. Holy crap can they sing. Also, they are insane.
Have musicians focus on the music making, and artists/ animators/ choreographers take a symbiotic role.
eg. Interstella 5555 - Studio Ghibli version/ Studio Trigger/ Madhouse/ Studio 4°C
The video clips are sometimes fun and fit the mood of the song especially if you know it inside out. The novelty / interest of watching an audio media fades pretty quickly for me.
