China is also falling in love with Cosmic Girls' Cheng Xiao.
After her stellar performance on the '2016 Idol Star Athletics Championships', Cheng Xiao's popularity skyrocketed. As a result, the super rookie is currently taking over many variety shows, expanding her fandom further and further. And recently, her popularity even reached over to her motherland China, where she is offered a shocking amount of money to make an appearance on variety shows.
According to an insider, Cheng Xiao is offered around 10,000,000 KRW, approximately $8,714 USD, per episode. The offered price is considered especially large because Cheng Xiao is a rookie who made her debut only 8 months ago.
The insider also stated, "The love toward Cheng Xiao in Korea is being carried over to China. Chinese variety shows are willing to give a great amount of money to have Cheng Xiao on their shows."
Looks like we have a new rising superstar!
