According to South Korean news agency Ilgan Sports, K-Pop girl groups who are competing on Mnet’s ‘Queendom’ reportedly have to pay for their stages.
Reports stated that ‘Queendom’ did not have a music director as part of the staff, and because of this, the girl groups and their respective agencies were responsible for stage preparations themselves, which would entail hiring choreographers and music arrangers using money out of their own pockets.
However some of the singers have stated that despite having to use their own money to prepare for the stages on the show, they felt it was a good investment.
Of course, other singers have also expressed that money was a bit of an issue.
Currently, the participants of ‘Queendom’ include AOA, (G)I-DLE, Lovelyz, MAMAMOO, Oh My Girl, and Park Bom.
