The Reason Why Kpop Idols Form Unit Groups

Do you like Kpop idol groups? As you know, there are so many Kpop idol groups, and they catch eyes of people by giving off their unique charm. Prominent Kpop idol groups such as TVXQ, Super Junior, SHINee, Big Bang, Girls' Generation, After School and more are loved by many people around the world.

By the way, some of those groups have their sub units. Sub units are composed of some members of the original group, and sometimes, are even more loved by people than the original groups are.



Then, do you know why Kpop idols form their sub unit groups? Well, it is mutually beneficial.

From the point of view of Kpop agencies, Kpop stars are highly marketable products. The agencies can have extra income by promoting their sub unit groups. This is why the agencies constantly think out the new sub unit groups.
