I don’t spend the money that’s in my account for royalty earnings. I just leave it.
When I look at it, it makes me feel, ‘I need to work harder.’
Sunmi revealed that she’s been earning royalties since Wonder Girls’ “Reboot” album days. She confessed that she didn’t make much in the beginning but revealed that her royalties have increased by 10x!
I started writing songs since Wonder Girls’ “Reboot” album. At first, my royalties weren’t much. It was around a couple 100,000 won.
I’ve been producing by myself, and it’s not in the 100 millions but it’s increased to a couple of 10 millions.
Some of Sunmi’s most famous self-produced songs include, “Siren” and “Lalalay”. She’s also wrote, composed, and produced her latest album “pporappippam”. With her continued success of hits after hits, Sunmi’s royalties know nowhere but up!
