Interesting Facts about Yuehua Entertainment
  • Yuehua’s main source of income is film, which is why Jung Jung took part in the film Girl’s Memoir, and it is likely that most, if not all, other Yuehua trainees will star in a film someday. 
  • Yuehua is incredibly rich. SM Entertainment has a market value of ₩57.91 Million, while Yuehua has a market value of ₩58.81 Million.
  • As a Chinese company, Yuehua had few connections in Korea, and have partnered with YG, Pledis, and Starship over the years to get their start. UNIQ trained alongside Winner and iKon in the YG building in 2012. Yuehua artist UNIQ shared a practice room with NU’EST in 2014. Yuehua and Starship both contributed trainees to WJSN. Yuehua now has their own headquarters in Korea.
  • Because of these partnerships, the Yuehua Boys are close with NU’EST and the Starship trainees, Jung Sewoon and Lee Gwanghyun.
  • Yuehua’s first K-pop group, UNIQ, faced difficulties at their debut due to Yuehua not having a Korean branch. Now that Yuehua has a Korean branch and connections with Starship, no such problem should occur with Yuehua Boys.
  • As a Chinese company, Yuehua lacks the age and status hierarchy found in Korean companies. This is why Euiwoong is the leader of the Yuehua Boys, even though he is the second youngest and has the shortest training period. Yuehua artists are also allowed much more creative and personal freedom, and are treated very well by their company.
  • Yuehua chooses trainees that are confident and carefree. This is why the Yuehua Boys volunteered to perform first in the first evaluation of Produce 101, why Euiwoong promised to “become a cooler artist than anyone debuting (in Wanna-One),” and why the Yuehua Boys did not cry like many other trainees did in the finale of Produce 101.
