Imagine debuting as a K-Pop idol girl group and not earning a penny, despite putting in everything you’ve got.

Tragic Story Of Girl Group Who Made Zero Money & Eventually Disbanded

Such was the case with former girl group Fiestar, that disbanded back in 2018. During a recent interview, former member YEL (HyeMi) stated:

“We had zero income. Our agency provided high quality outfits as well as props, but the results were not that great.”

She went on to say:

“But the agency itself was great. The company provided us with allowances. Even though we never made any money, I was able to obtain valuable experiences during Fiestar’s promotions. We weren’t famous, but there are people who still remember us. And that for me is enough to compensate for the difficulties we went through.”

Stories such as this show just hard it is for aspiring idols to make money and do something they are passionate about at the same time.

But YEL also did mention that all of the former group members are still quite close and remain supportive each other.

Cao Lu kinda mentioned this abt Fiestar years ago. And its very common. Many members leave/ groups disband coz they aren’t making money. To any Kpop idol wannabe – know that most groups actually fail. For girl groups, you’d have to be in the top-15 or…
