‘Superstar K’ winner Kim Young Geun says some judges didn’t give him promised songs
Q) What was the reason why you rarely promoted after winning ‘Superstar K’?
A) The prize money $200K was supposed to be used for the 7 judges. I was supposed to release 7 songs given by each judge. Only Brave Brother and FNC gave me songs. I haven’t heard anything from the rest. I want to keep working with them.
Summary: The prize money of winning ‘Superstar K’ is $500K. $300K is paid for tax and the rest of $200K money is used for the winner’s debut album production. The $200K is paid to the 7 judges and the judges have to give the winner a song, total of 7 songs. The judges were Gummy, Gil, Ailee, Kim Yeon Woo, Kim Bum Soo, Brave Brother, and Han Sung Ho. Only Brave Brother and Han Sung Ho gave the winner songs.
Pann: Whereabouts of the last winner of Superstar K
1. [+265, -0] Does that mean they took $200K for album production but didn’t give him songs? Isn’t that a scam?
2. [+177, -0] I knew Kim Bum Soo had a bad character but what’s with the rest ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
3. [+163, -0] I used to find some of the judges likeable. I’m so disappointed.
4. [+141, -0] What’s with Gummy, Ailee, and Kim Yeon Woo ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I guess all celebrities are a trash.
5. [+89, -0] Gummy is the most unexpected one. Disappointed.
6. [+83, -0] Wow, they’re robbers. This needs more attention. How can they crush a young man’s dream like that? Swallowing all that money and ignoring him like that, what delinquents.
7. [+68, -1] It’s not like the singers don’t have money. How can they be acting like that just because it’s not their business? I hope the winner finds strength.
8. [+60, -1] I used to criticize FNC all the time but they’re clean with things like this.
9. [+54, -0] The judges themselves aren’t even doing that great. Gummy and Ailee? It makes me laugh ㅋㅋㅋㅋ The judges should be those who are able to compose songs with a mindset of a producer. They’re all irresponsible. Fraud Mnet.
10. [+53, -3] The judges whom you expect the least from gave him songs and the judges whom you expect the most from didn’t give him songs. This is too much.
