Wanna One members make money
Each of the agencies will split the income with the band members, but the proportions could be different depending on the contracts, the report said.
The money covers the income made in the month of October for each of the Wanna One members’ appearances in advertisements in their early days after the debut. The profits from sales of the band’s albums, music streaming and payments for later appearances in advertisements have yet to be included. Accordingly, each member of the band will earn much more this year.
The money that the agencies received is made of the income left after the entertainment company CJ E&M and YMC Entertainment took their proportions, which has not been unveiled. CJ E&M owns the cable channel Mnet, which aired “Produce 101” season two, on which the boy band was created. YMC Entertainment manages the activities of the band.
