Rock band Nell's frontman Kim Jong Wan revealed that INFINITE are the breadwinners in their agency, Woollim Entertainment.


On the July 3rd episode of tvN's 'Baek Ji Yeon's People Inside', he shared, "[Nell] is more about concerts than broadcasts. To be honest, I don't think we do much promotion. If you want to get specific, we only do 2 concerts every year."


When asked if Nell doesn't worry about bringing income to their label, Kim Jong Wan responded, "But our label has INFINITE... We have our own profits from single and album sales too," making everyone laugh.

Ahhhh.... I still remember Sujeong when he first was Happy Together. Acting out all those girl group dances with kkap king and queen Jo Kwon and Min, and who could forget, Lee Joon :)

There's a huge difference between them. While Infinite are idols, Nell is just your typical band, although I'd love to see them promoting more in music and variety shows. I'm a fan of both, so I'm really glad they are successful.

I'm glad that Infinite's hard work is paying off and Nell is really popular in korea even without promotions  Coming from a small company like Woollim, I'm glad that they are all succeeding now. Hard work really pays off.

Nell is very famous in Korea and well even if they don't promote that much, they still have a huge fanbase. Woolim pretty much allows them to do what they want since Nell is pretty much a guaranteed to be successful anyway, they're very respected in the music industry specially in their genre and they don't really need much promotion to prove that.

well I think Nell's fans are different... I mean they'll of cource buy their CDs and go to their concert but Infinte fans are crazy fangirls *like me^^* who buy everything like crazy related to infinite. not just their CDs to listen to their music but posters and all the merchandise from their company and all the things they advertise.

It wasn't until a few weeks ago that I first listened to Nell, 'Ocean of Light' was amazing. I wonder why Nell isn't famous. They need to go on variety shows D;

I think they're pretty famous in Korea. I mean they only have 2 concerts per year but they manage to attract people without much promotions ...

Think this was obvious. INFINITE to Woollim is what Big Bang is/was to YG.

I think that's a given. But I like that he doesn't mind admitting it. A lot of money is put into Infinite and there is a huge return.

But Nell doesn't exactly disappoint either.

i think nell can be big if they promote more. they have good music and their kind of music is more universal than the usual k-pop stuffs. just saying.

Call me crazy but maybe Nell should try Europe or the US.  Kim Jong Wan's English is really good and the music they produce would appeal to certain audiences.  Europeans are a lot more open with the types of music they listen to also.

I completely agree, although I'd say Europe would be a better idea to try first. I remember being pleasantly surprised the first time I listened to one of their english songs, I started recomending them to non kpop fans.

that was kind of obvious without him saying so, no? Anyway as long as Infinite themselves are fine with it, I'm not going to be bothered by it
