Korean girl group Jewelry has announced recently that they would be taking an extended break until the end of the year. Other than the scheduled recordings with the 3 major tv stations, they will not be attending other events.
Seo In Young expressed on her Cyworld that they have been overly busy in the earlier half of the year and used up quite a lot of energy. For their health, they have decided to take a break as a group and this means that Jewelry will miss out on nearly 200 million won worth of earnings for event performances.
The end of the year period is usually the time where singers earn the most money. With Jewelry opting to take a break, their earnings are likely to take a big hit. But according to Jewelry’s management, the members have to release an album and go to school, it’s simply too tiring. For their health, it’s better to just put the money issue aside for the moment. And thus, Jewelry’s performance at the 2008 MKMF is likely to be their last big-scale event for a while.
