I can't say much about Jpop, but for Kpop there are plenty of articles about how bad it is. Like This, This, This, This, or this video documentary.

It's Kpop that's getting the attention lately, I'd be happy to hear that Jpop is better. However it doesn't seem so structurally different. For what it's worth, according to this article, AKB48's contract is probably illegal.
