It's impossible to follow everything that happens in East Asian entertainment without missing something. That's why you should check out Polaris' and Dragon of the West's latest ICYMI for a primer on the week's news and releases.
But do you know who never misses? Kpop's most useful singer. She...

Yknok recently found out that KakaoM owns 40% of Edam Entertainment, whose only artist is - Lee Jieun.
Which means, the remaining 60% is owned by
and @dlwlrma. (Most likely it would be owned by some proxy's name but it would ultimately flow to KPop's Senior Singer.)
IU's new single featuring (and co-produced by) BTS's Suga reached 1,347,822 ULs in the first day, becoming the song with the most ULs for 2020 and the 3rd highest for all time. The songs at number 1 and 2 are also both by IU (Bbibbi and Leon ft Myungsoo). Congrats to the digital monsters💜💙💛❤💚...

This is the table for the KPop concerts held in Taiwan in the last 12 months.
(US$1 = about 300 TWD)
10. GFriend. 4200 people - 17.5 mil TWD ($580,000) $138/person
9. IZone - 4500 people - 20.25 ($672,000) $149/person
Elsewhere, I wrote that the highest earning KPop figure of 2017 (when GDragon and DBSK had their military services) was IU, the only time a female figure reached that spot in the history of KPop.
She reached that position thru a bunch of luck ; the highest earning figures were at military and...
