I hope the performers in BTS are also getting paid an equivalent share of the profits. Always seems shady these idol management groups especially in Japan.

That link cites "SeoulSpace" as its source for this "$8 million" rumour. This is the exact quote from SeoulSpace:

How wealthy are the members of BTS? The BTS Net Worth figures very difficult to find, however, we can make our best estimates based on their salary, endorsement deals, and other projects. One thing we know for sure (oh, really? Hahaha) is that each BTS member has a base salary of $8 million a year. 

SeoulSpace provides zero evidence for this claim. They literally could say anything. Their article is even more worthless than a Wikipedia entry.

@Kentarogaijin...

And to anyone 'fan' now aware of this, and continuing to consume, makes them part of the problem. Guilt via association applies in all circumstance.

"$8 million" rumour

HYBE is a publicly traded company so how much they paid to BTS is in their earnings report.

HYBE paid BTS $150 million as of July 2020, excluding stock options. After all, this is the same company that the likes of Justin Bieber and Arianna Grande work for, and HYBE isn't paying BTS any less than they pay Justin Bieber.

HYBE pay package is such that Miyawaki Sakura just fled Japan to join HYBE. Supposedly cost HYBE a pretty penny to get her released from her existing Japanese contract, but HYBE is sitting on billions so money is not a problem.

Never heard of her. Was she not able to make it in Japan?

She was an AKB ace. No. 3 ranker in 2018 AKB48 election(AKB48 election was suspended from 2019).
