July 29, miss A member Suzy appeared on the SBS TV show "Healing Camp" and answered all the questions about the earnings of members.
Suzy explained, "First thing when there is an income, we split it with our entertainment company no matter what. With the remaining amount, we split it among miss A members." Suzy continued, "It changed this year. The percentages changed a bit so I take more of my earnings than I used to."
Some fans may not be able to understand this procedure. If one member works a lot more than the others, it may make sense for that member to take more income. However, that does not work out in reality. Most idol groups split their earnings for the first couple of years without thinking about who is more popular and who makes more earnings.
A representative who has been managing idol groups for a long time stated, "Typical idols sign a contract for about 7 years. There are cases now where they sign a 5-year contract. Typically, for the first half of their contract time period, idol groups all split their earnings"
Even though only one or two members of an idol group work more, all the earnings are split equally among the members of the group.
A different manager from another entertainment agency stated, "It would be a lie if I said there were no conflicts among the members in idol groups. One of the reasons for this type of contract is to make the group more unified. Instead of focusing on their individual activities, their team comes first. There are a lot of misunderstandings because fans think that the member who does not work as much benefit undeservingly. However, it is all done for a reason."
