Each Wanna One
member has received their first payment.
An insider revealed that each member's label had been paid 150 million KRW (approximately 133,000 USD) for their first payment. The members will then split it with their label according to their contract (individual trainee Kim Jae Hwan, however, takes it all for himself). It's estimated that the boys made 3.3 billion KRW (approximately 2.9 million USD) total in terms of pure profit together, which was first split with CJ E&M and YMC Entertainment.

This first payment also does not include the boys' album profits (and costs). As they sold a record-breaking number of their debut mini album, they're expected to have well surpassed the original estimate on their pure profit.
The boys have recently come back with "Beautiful", which you can check out here.
