Wassup has opened up a project on 'Makestar' (similar to Kickstarter) to get funding for the production of a new album so they can make a comeback!


They opened up the project today, announcing this via their SNS.  According to the page, they are asking for $6,508, and so far have received donations of $810 by 12 people at time of writing. This is not bad considering they just started a few hours ago! There's 57 more days to reach their goal.

Dain is so sexy. Even if they maybe is not the best singers, I like the type of music they do.

I don't like how some people say that this shouldn't be done? Why not, what's wrong with it?

Crowdfunding music productions is a good financial idea.  Supplying the money before the project starts reduces risk.  In this way, all of the funds collected can be spent to produce a better product.  Traditionally, the money is spent first then hopefully recovered later.  This approach increases risk and tends to limit investment.  Crowdfunding also makes sense when considering an international market space.  The company will know where the funds are coming from, plus when you start converting dollars, pounds, euros, et al. to krw, they'll go a long way.

I don't see anything wrong with what they do.

I dunno if crowd-funding is the way to go, but if the people who donated, want to see them make a comeback, then why not. IF they fail to hit the target amount, that also indirectly tells the agency that people are not that interested in them anymore, and will send a sign that its probably time to call it quits and disband, However if they exceed the amount by a lot, it can mean there is still profit to be made from the group to continue on.

I hope they leave Sony tbh...I think a more Korean based company would help them more...well, the non-shady type anyways ;)

OMG! Why have so much negative comments? Others groups make this too! EXID, AOA, RANIA and STELLAR! Why Wassup can't do it too?

If they were as good as people claim and they try to front they're wouldn't be a need to crowd fund lmao and wtf is jusy?!

Why be so stupid?? this has nothing to do with how good/bad they are! it`s a funding project where idols & fans can get closer together. The groups get the help funding a project, while the fans get some added bonuses! that wouldn't be available to anyone else. Other`s also use this site... NC.A / Halo / High4 / Rania / 2PM / Stellar / APink /Tahiti.... the list goes on! are all these crap and need to do projects?
