China is also falling in love with Cosmic GirlsCheng 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!

She will always be limited in the Korean variety industry since she can't speak Korean and there's a cap on how famous she can get. She'll probably stick to promoting in China once her bubble bursts

Really? I remember watching her on Happy Together Global Entertainers Special, she seemed to speak Korean okay to me. Maybe not the best, but she hasn't lived in Korea that long as well.

China always pays so much

k_kid Saturday, October 29, 2016

I get the feeling that in the very near future once Cheng Xiao becomes established enough and with some experience, she will leave Cosmic Girls and will work mainly in China.

Cosmic Girls is a tie-up business by Chinese & Korean company. I don't know if its Hua-yi brothers or other big company in China.

k_kid emz Sunday, October 30, 2016

She's in Starship/Yuehua. But seeing how crazy popular Cheng Xiao got in just 8 months and pretty much she's going to keep getting more popular, I don't think, in my opinion, that she'll stay in Cosmic Girls long term unless they become really popular like Twice or popular girl groups. I think she'll stay and promote until they start cooling down and stop promoting like how Miss A and f(x) are right now. She'll be doing her own solo thing with CF's, variety shows, dramas, and maybe even movies in Korea/China. But when her contract is up, she won't renew it and go solo. I think her main thing is to become an actress in China later like Victoria, since she did say on Happy Together that she wants to become like Victoria. This is just my thought.
