How Much Do Girl Groups Cost Agencies?

2011/09/09 Source

A Korean cable channel recently revealed the budget required to dress, feed, and house girl groups. The bottom line? 65 million won pr month, for a popular 7-membered girl group. That's roughly $60,000!

A big chunk of that figure, about $22,000, went to the monthly rent required for the girls' dorm. Aside from that though, a lot of money went into hair, makeup, and basic beauty regimem, costing a total of $19,000 a month. And that's including a 50% discount for their celebrity status! More specifically, skin care required to keep the companies' idols looking dewy and blemish-free cost an additional $9,000.

Other expense were shelled out for food and transportation, amounting to about $10,000.
