SENDING WRONG MESSAGE

In the report on teen idols, in the South China Morning Post, on February 6, one of the people who manages these young stars said that choosing to 'worship' pop idols was 'not a bad thing'.


Each year we see an increasing number of young pop stars appearing who have little talent.


This leads to declining standards in the Hong Kong music industry and sets a poor example to young people.


Teenagers must learn that they can only succeed in life through hard work. Therefore, this 'teen idol' system sends them the wrong message and affects them in a negative way.


There is nothing wrong with respecting a pop star you like. But teenagers must concentrate on their studies and not worship singers.
