The person is Victon's Hanse
Since leaving IST Entertainment and joining The Dial Music, the idol has continued to release music and perform in front of fans worldwide. Yet, netizens have noticed that he hasn’t been promoting his tracks on music shows.

Hanse’s recent posts to fans were shared on the Korean forum theqoo and gained a lot of attention from netizens. In the posts, Hanse spoke about the costs of doing a music show, which was extremely specific, including not just participation but the extras. He explained, “It’s good to do music shows, but well, the investments and returns are unbalanced.”

“Unlike the second gen that I used to watch when I was a baby, the promotional effects of going on music shows are not as huge, but promoting for a week costs about ₩10.0 million KRW (about $7,340 USD), but you only get paid ₩50,000 KRW (about $36.70 USD) in appearance fees.

In my day it was ₩50,000 KRW (about $36.70 USD)”

(Untranslated text: So that's why it's a ridiculous game with a reasonable teamㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ큐
- You can have a cooler MV just with 1-2 weeks of music show (fees)
- There might be people asking why I'm sharing this but I felt like you'd be curiousㅋㅋㅋㅋ)

(Untranslated text: I'm also just letting you know the reason why we're not going on music shows
- Very few idol teams get paid, and all but a few who are at top of the lineup and headliners at festivals, and most importantly, aside from a few teams that even the general public are aware of, all idol groups are just racking up debt before their contract ends)

original post: here

1. The hair, makeup, coordi and travel fees are seriously expensive....

2. So that's why unless you join a rich big company, you shouldn't become an idol...

3. It reminds me of my bias..ㅜㅜ I wish they could get paidㅜㅜ

4. Hul this is the realityㅠ

5. If you look at the year end award shows, their stages are even more fancy and extravagant than music shows.... I bet that those are extremely expensive too...

6. The decoration for the set is honestly super expensive... seriously, the fact that idols just rack up debt for 7 years straight and end their contract like that just feels so empty.... they must have such a reality check...

7. This reminds me of my bias and it makes me so sadㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ I just went to tell them that I wanted to see them more often on music shows but now that I read this post..ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

8. 2 weeks of music shows = 1 MV so it makes me realize just how it affects the bottom line so abnormally...

9. The fact that you get no reward for your effort is just too much...

10. This is the reality...ㅠ the fact that he talks about how his debt doesn't disappear even once his contract ends is just sadㅠ that's why idols with big seniority promote less... they have no choice but to just stick with it...
