While K-Pop fans are known for the amount of money they spend to support their favourite groups, there are 3 particular fandoms that blow everyone else out of the water. According to a research done by iPrice, these 3 fandoms spend the most money on goods, merchandise and concert tickets.
3. BLACKPINK’s Blinks
Blinks stop at nothing to show their love and appreciation to their four favorite girls – and that includes the amount of money they spend. Each Blink spends an average of $665 on the group! Although this number is lower than the other two fandoms featured, it’s important to remember that BLACKPINK is a much younger group, with less merch to spend money on. The fact that they made it to third place on the list is an impressive feat.
2. TWICE’s Onces
Onces spend an additional $200 on the group, averaging at $842 each. While TWICE’s merch is usually cheaper than BLACKPINK’s, the additional money may be going towards buying albums, as it would cost $205 to collect them all.
1. BTS’ Army
This probably comes as no surprise: BTS’ Army are the highest spenders, averaging at $1422 each. To put things into perspective, that’s only about $30 shy from the cost of the most expensive iPhone, which retails at $1450.
How much do you think you’ve spent on your favorite group? Does it compare to these numbers?
