AOA featured as guests on SBS Power FM Cultwo Show on November 25 and mid-interview admitted to still not incurring any personal income, despite their continued releases, promotional activities and endorsements.
DJ Jeong Chan Woo invoked the confession accidentallyby commenting on how beautiful Choa looked without makeup when he spied her at a rest stop.
In response to a listener’s question on the subject, Choa said, “Since we go to festivals and events almost every day, our members want to sleep as soon as we arrive at our dormitory. So we tend to remove our makeup while traveling. It’s a habit so that we can sleep right away and wake up for next day’s schedule.”
DJ Kim Tae Kyun then asked whether AOA’s CEO like to buy special food for them, Ji Min replied, “He bought us beef once.” Kim Tae Kyun pressed her to see if their boss had only bought them food that one time, to which Choa chimed in, “He bought us beef once. But last time he gave us pocket money to spend. We still don’t have any personal income. He gives us pocket money so that we can spend some and buy clothes as well.”
AOA (Ace of Angels) are managed by FNC Entertainment and debuted back in July, 2012.
