EXID Sees Positive Revenue for the First Time Since Debut

It has just been announced that for the first time since their 2012 debut, the group EXID has earned revenue.

According to the group's agency, thanks to their sudden rise in popularity, this is the most revenue EXID has ever seen.

On May 6, a Yedang Entertainment representative stated, "EXID has earned revenue for the first time since their debut. For the first time since their 2012 debut, they are in the 'plus'."

The representative further explained that before "UP&DOWN", EXID had constantly been in the "minus" -- in other words, the agency was spending more money on the group than the group was making.

EXID's entertainment company went on to state, "It would be difficult to disclose exactly how much they made, but they made an amount suitable for the hard work they've put into promotions. They were all very glad."

We're glad too! Congratulations to EXID on finally stacking some cash!

glad they're finally making a profit (after three years!!!!) but i still don't think they're seeing any money. aren't they still paying off their trainee debt? minus le maybe??

Yeah like as a company they're probably seeing revenue, but I doubt the group members are seeing any influx of cash moneys.

i think thats what an article implies since idols revenue typically goes straight into paying off their debt before theyre considered in the green

from the article it's pretty clear exid are being paid now. they were in the minus for their debt and now they have paid it all off & are making money!!!!

like this is good news but also goddamn
my job sucks & i make minimum wage to deal with far too much already like i could never be an idol
wafflesnmilk 6th-May-2015 05:55 am (UTC)
and it took them a wildly successful hit song and several cfs to get there , makes you think about how groups like dal shabet even have enough capital to continue promoting
agoongprincess 7th-May-2015 02:43 am (UTC)
exactly. i wonder about dal shabet/etc but the idol escort rumors about agencies pimping out their idols makes me think of them & other groups who are flopping but keep promoting.

senshicalico 6th-May-2015 08:38 pm (UTC)
lol, I figured as much. Sigh.

i'm touched, congrats T.T. if they weren't suddenly popular then they'll be going for their 3rd year without any revenue, how depressing it is, adding that there's many group suffering like them out there

pockeeta 6th-May-2015 10:29 am (UTC)
curious but is this inclusive of their other jobs/individual work? like variety shows, etc?
xxhna 6th-May-2015 11:54 am (UTC)
Congrats girls! This makes me wonder how other groups who are not as popular get paid.
revertigo 6th-May-2015 01:03 pm (UTC)
yay! i wish this for every group -- just thinking of my student loans and being in debt when you're just starting out just feels so hopeless lol :( with idols you're basically in an indentured servant contract for a decade with the big companies and they might not treat you well

EXID tho! every win is like their first win

How do they look so pretty while ugly crying... I swear they are all fairies.

They've been through so much I'm just glad they're finally seeing the fruits of their labor.

The entertainment industry is so shady, I could never. But really, I could never seeing as I have no talent anyway.
