Girl Group under YG Entertainment With The Biggest Income After 2NE1
The popularity of K-Pop artists seems to be less appropriate if used as a benchmark to establish the size of their income for the agency. The amount of income may or may not be in accordance with the promotions that have been made for these groups.
Amy K-Pop entertainment agency company definitely has many idol groups and solo artists in their company, and the expectation is that the performers will provide a large income for the agency. Moreover, the agencies spend an enormous amount of money to bring them up. One of the idol groups that became one of the biggest incomes came from Korea’s big three agencies is BLACKPINK.
From their debut with the single Boombayah until their latest phenomenal song, DDU-DU DDU-DU, BLACKPINK has become YG Entertainment’s newest asset after 2NE1 disbanded. The group can generate around 25.3 million dollars a year, so it’s no wonder netizens say BLACKPINK is the next 2NE1, and will succeed in the K-Pop music industry.
Having A Large Income, Blackpink Members Occupy A Luxury Apartment
BLACKPINK is one of the Korean girl-groups that is currently enjoying a lot of fame. In no time at all, Jisoo, Jennie, Rose, and Lisa have become many people’s idols, thanks to their unique songs, dancing and personality when appearing on variety shows.
Usually, a new girl-group or boy-group at the beginning of their debut will live in a dorm that is far from luxurious. Sometimes they may live together in a small apartment with their belongings scattered everywhere. The small apartment didn’t apply to BLACKPINK.
The first glimpses of BLACKPINK’s apartment were seen in Jennie’s post and on the show for Lisa. As soon as they learned about the group’s apartment from YG Entertainment, netizens also starting trying to find out where it was located, too.
As reported from Koreaboo, BLACKPINK members live at the Han River Bamseom Apartments, one of the most prestigious residential locations in all of Seoul. This location isn’t as famous as the Hanwha Galleria Floret or Seoul Forest Trimage, but the Han River Bamseom apartment still falls into the category of expensive properties. As the name suggests, this apartment has a beautiful view of the Han River, which is one of the best views in Seoul.
Based on the outstanding price list, rent for a four-room apartment in the Han River Bamseom is around 12 million won,, or well over $10,000 USD, a month. Needless to say, it’s quite a luxurious place to live. Especially for BLACKPINK, who are still relatively new in the K-Pop Entertainment world.
