This international pop collection features publishing earnings from the popular Korean girl group Oh My Girl. As the winner of this auction, you will collect the publisher's share of mechanical, public performance, and sync royalties for this global catalog.
The largest income source is mechanical royalties — publishing royalties earned when music is either physically sold (CDs), downloaded (iTunes), or streamed online (Spotify). These mechanical royalties make up 51% of earnings for this catalog in the last year. And this income source has grown 31% in the last year.
Royalties are fairly evenly distributed across the catalog. The top-earning song is the 2018 release “Love O Clock,” bringing in 30% of revenue last year. This track is off the album Secret Garden (2018), which also includes the titles “Magic” and “Butterfly” from this collection. Those other two songs account for an additional 30% of last year’s income.
Right behind “Love O Clock” is the group’s popular title “Windy Day.” This song accounted for 25% of royalties in the last four quarters. Originally released in 2016, Oh My Girl recently re-released “Windy Day” in January 2019 on Oh My Girl Japan Debut Album. The album enjoyed healthy album sales thus far in Japan.
K-Pop Genre. 2018 was the year of K-pop’s undeniable rise to become a globally recognized industry, according to Forbes.
Korean pop acts first began to go viral over a decade ago with the emergence of YouTube. As a result, the Korean music industry has grown in recognition and popularity in both Asia and around the globe. K-Pop now has an audience in the United States, Europe, the Middle East, and South America, and other Asian markets, including Japan.
According to Nielsen, for the first time ever, songs by multiple K-Pop acts achieved success on the Billboard Hot 100 and other charts, suggesting the K-Pop revolution may have only just begun.
