As one of the Big 3 entertainment companies in South Korea, JYP Entertainment is home to some of the most popular idol groups of all time. From senior idols to rookies, many fans are curious as to which of them are the agency’s biggest money-makers. 2PM’s Junho recently unveiled this mystery.
On the May 11 show of âHappy Together 3,â 2PM’s Junho discussed which idol group is currently making the most money on JYP Entertainment. Contrary to speculation that girl group TWICE currently has the most casting for the company, Junho revealed that it’s actually 2pm that brings in the most profits.
Junho explained that although 2PM rarely appears on local shows these days, the band is promoting widely and going on tour overseas, making them the main reigning profit generator at JYP Entertainment, allkpop reports.
Junho’s statement coincides with that of JYP Entertainment CEO Jung Wook, who revealed in December that 2PM is the agency’s number one source of profit, followed by Suzy, GOT7 and TWICE.
Jung Wook acknowledged the popularity of 2PM in Japan and the concerts they put on there as being the bulk of what they bring to the agency, allkpop reports.
Meanwhile, Junho also wanted to dispel misconceptions about 2pm. He shared that he’s been getting a lot of questions lately about what he’s doing and that a lot of people assume he and the rest of the 2pm are on break.
He received comments asking him why he could afford to live in a nice house when he was not working. Junho was keen to clarify that although it seems 2PM is not busy promoting in South Korea, members are still working very hard overseas.
2PM debuted in 2008 and has since grown into one of the most successful and recognizable K-Pop groups. The group has launched a new reality show on E! Entertainment this year, titled “2PM Wild Beat”.
