'Unpretty Rapstar 3' revealed a previously recorded interview with Wassup's Nada, where she openly talked about her sad financial state.

When the production crew asked her how much she currently makes, Nada replied honestly, "I'm really dirt poor right now," laughing. She explained, "It's because Wassup is not active so we're not getting any income." 


At least Nada is a bit better off than the other members as she also takes part in the music production process. She said, "Because I'm the only member who writes rap lyrics, I receive both copyright and performance royalties. But you know, every time someone streams my music it's only 6 KRW (not even a whole cent in USD)...and if we split it, then it becomes 0.0-something KRW. I don't even get 100,000 KRW (~$89 USD) deposited in my bank account." 


The idol continued, "Because our management label isn't doing so well, they can't properly do my hair or makeup and I've had to go to my schedules or the airport using public transportation."

    I do think several big and rich idol still use public transportation though, if I am not mistaken GD, Seungri, Kim So Hyun ,Shinee Minho, Park Bogum still use it.

    No GD couldn't use public transport. He and the other Bigbang members only tried it like once or twice and were fascinated by how people get their tickets. They talked about it on a variety show.

    I feel you, Nada. Most people have no idea how financially tiring it is to try and break through in the music industry. It's not like other jobs where you start work and recieve a wage. Most performers have to work for free for many years while supporting their music with finances from additional jobs. It's a lot to carry.

    No, we ARE born pale. We are naturally very pale. But we can get tanned easily. East Asians from the north are very pale compared to East Asians from the south. And I don't mean South East Asian, just East Asians (like Chinese, Koreans and Japanese) from the southern parts of their countries.

    Lizzy from After School/ Orange Caramel has recently said the same thing since her label won't give her group any work. Being an idol definitely isn't as glamorous as it appears on the outside. I hope WASSUP can have another comeback, because their last one was really impressive.
