Sigh. I dont understand. Hes rich. And hes risking it all on something that chances are is going to fail. The chances of a girl group succeeding from a small company is hella small.

Beat of luck to him and that group. I love that he really is going to give his all to investing in them. It's hard debuting alone but also having to build a fanbase is alot as well and kpop music is so heavily saturated with so many of the same concepts that its hard to set yourself apart from everyone else.

I know artist want to own the rights to their music and for him to sell 160 songs that's amazing.
