Research Paper on the Effect of K-Pop on Eating Disorders and Body Image in Teenagers
Abigail tested the effect of K-Pop on eating disorders in teenagers by conducting an experiment with two randomly selected groups. The first group was shown a classical orchestra, while the second group was shown a K-Pop music video. The participants were asked to fill out a series of questions that asked about body image both before and after viewing the videos. Abigail had two hypotheses. Firstly, she hypothesized that the group that watched K-Pop would have a drop in body image, while the classical music watchers would stay the same. Secondly, she hypothesized that Asians would show more of a negative effect than the Caucasians that participated in the experiment, due to the difference between Asian and Western beauty standards. In the end, the data didn't support her first hypothesis, but it did support her second!
