Japanese Idol
In Japanese pop culture "idol" (アイドル, aidoru, a Japanese rendering of the English word "idol") is a term typically used to refer to young manufactured stars/starlets marketed to be admired for their cuteness.

Idols aim to play a wide range of roles as media personalities (tarento): e.g. pop singers, panelists of variety programs, bit-part actors, models for magazines and advertisements.[7][8][9][10][11][12][13] The term is commercialized by Japanese talent agencies,[14] that hold auditions for boys and girls with little or no prior experience in the entertainment industry, often as aspiring stars/starlets to be adored for their sweetness and innocence[14] with the intent of creating a passionate following
