  • Guys, appearance fees at university festivals are often on the low side compared to other events since these festivals have a promotional effect on young people 
  • It’s just a waste of tuition…
  • I don’t enjoy festivals, so I wish the money would be used to invest in school facilities and pay attention to student welfare.
  • Kwon Eunbi’s fee is simply impressive considering she’s a solo artist
