The show must go on...
"The show must go on" or value difference? Watch within the first few frames of this clip as the dancer on the right of the stage goes down and begins having a seizure. Watch her comrades ignore her and step over her on stage.
The group was truly more important than the individual, this clip removes all doubt from that old cultural cliché! I wonder if that will ever change?
It took a full thirty seconds for the stage crew to come out and help her and then drag her off stage! Unbelievable!! I wonder what the conversation was like after the show.
Read some of the commentary on the clip, such as this one:

Surreal. Truly the civilized world is hardening into a matrix-like clot of zombies. SHE'S HAVING A SEIZURE FOR GOD'S SAKE! Stop the inane dance number! Pause the teen icon worship service for one bloody second, and tend to a fellow human in need. And the stage hands just yank her off the stage heedless of further injuring her (you shouldn't move a seizing person until they stop); as if to apologize for this broken dancer. Stepford wives, Korean pop idol version. Makes me sad.
