Very interesting read with quite frank answers and numbers! CUBE's Youtube revenue from 2017 was over 4 Mio USD. Streaming income is divided 60% agency (~ 44% for CUBE, 10% royalties, 6% performers) and 40% music site services. BTOB have increased income distribution after renewal. CEO Shin is in charge of management while President Hong is still in charge of production aspect and has the final say on title tracks. CUBE plans to debut a boygroup with Kuan Lin and Seonho next year.

after reading this, i wonder if this really is true or just fanfiction. i can't imagine that a potential investor would be allowed to talk about those things (i.n.t.e.r.n.a.l. d.a.t.a.) in public.

Not gonna lie, I'm also suspicious about the veracity of this.. though it makes an interesting read and it's not entirely impossible that this is a leak ( though mentioning Yuqi makes them very easy to identify)

But really pentagon is aiming for teens...and kindergarteners???!

i rly hope all idols fight for youtube revenue in their contract negotiations because these agencies are making bank ad revenue. cube don't even have big numbers and are pulling in 4 million a year.

the person who wrote this has industry understanding so while it sucks for whoever will get in trouble for them sharing this nice for someone to spill a bit lol shouldn't have shared the Yuqi bit tho they're flying too close to the sun

them pivoting their aim with pentagon to kids and teens TT_TT

Black dress was a great song and they are great performers, I still don't quite get why they were not more popular, if it's because they didn't have a consistent sound. I am semi wondering if they will even have another release it if this is it for them as Cube put all their efforts into G-Idle...

I like them because they are all so talented and hardworking, but they don't have a particularly strong, charismatic and popular member to carry the team's name like Soyeon is doing for G-idle or Hyuna did for 4minute.

I hope "we are not decided for Jo WooChan yet" means they don't know if he's going to debut soon, and not "we don't know if he'll be in Guanlin and Seonho's group yet." Because putting Woochan who has solid rapping skills with ~swaggy rapper~ Guanlin sounds like their songs wouldn't mesh well.

Rip CLC. Not even a mention except 'they don't choreograph for themselves." Also, all of this praise/mention of (g)-idle and Pentagon writing/producing for themselves reminds me of how YGE was all praising they're self-produced idols (as long as they're dudes).
