Recently, Yunjin released her second self-composed track called “I ≠ DOLL.” From the very beginning, the track is almost like an open letter to K-Pop, addressing some of the issues that make the industry toxic.

It also touches upon some of the hardships that idols face, whether it’s constantly being judged on what you’re wearing or the idea of maintaining a certain reputation through your actions.

She even touches upon the fact that idols can’t have their own opinions or voice because of the fear of backlash from what they say.

The title “I ≠ DOLL” is showcased with the lyrics “IDOL DOESNT MEAN A DOLL TO F**K WITH.” Each lyric showcases the hardships and how it’s a battle between being yourself and who everyone wants you to be.

In particular, the line, “Call me a b**ch, maybe want to be one,” shows off the constant hateful comments about their looks or what they do.

Yunjin even touches upon how physical vanity is at the forefront while any attempt to showcase personality or charm is nothing if you don’t look a certain way.

When the song was released, netizens were obsessed with Yunjin’s uncensored song about the K-Pop industry. After getting into the industry so young, she knows the pressures, hardships, and struggles of idols.

Yet, the reason that the song is also so impactful is that netizens have brought up past clips from Yunjin where the idol claims she wants to change the industry. By touching upon the idol industry with such strong words and a message, Yunjin is speaking out about the issues in K-Pop.

While K-Pop can be seen as a controlled industry, it seems like more idols are feeling comfortable being more vocal about the hardships they face. Yunjin has been through so much and is one of the best people to share her experiences with, and it isn’t surprising that she’s being praised.
