Jewelry made a successful comeback this year after adding two new members and their title track, “One More Time” becoming the hottest tune in the earlier part of 2008. Their immense popularity is reflected in their profitable earnings.
Their earnings through album sales, ringtones download, etc for “One More Time” since being released 40 days ago has exceeded 10 million won and their increasing popularity sees them inching closer to what the Wonder Girls raked in last year (25 million won) for “Tell Me”, last year’s breakaway hit.
Their label M.Net Media expressed, “Regulations in Korea means that we can only calculate the earnings after March album sales it out so we aren’t quite clear about the exact numbers. But judging from how Jewelry’s album has reigned No.1 on best selling charts for five consecutive weeks, it’s estimated that their earnings should be in the region of 10 million won and above.
With the immense popularity of “One More Time”, the value of the four Jewelry members has also rocketed. Each member has gotten many invitations for CF and product endorsements. Under this present situation, Jewelry will continue promoting “One More Time” until the end of April before continuing their promotions with, “Everyone, Shh!” starting from May.
