The Highest-Earning Groups based on their appearance fees in South Korea

USER CONTENT

If you’re an avid fan of idol groups in the Korean-Pop industry, there’s a good chance that you’ve already heard of Kpop groups appearing to perform on various music festivals and their appearance fees. For event planners and promoters, an idol appearance can be a great way to raise the profile of a public event, and it can also make a private event that much more special.

Meanwhile, their appearance fee is expected to be assessed based on the type of performance they'll do per event and the price could have a slight difference between the prominence and popularity of the K-pop group that had been invited.
