Book AKMU for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
AKMU is a k pop duo consisting of South Korean siblings Lee Su-hyun and Lee Chan-hyuk. The two of them, who debuted their first album “Play” back in 2014, are known for their folk pop and soul twist on the genre. “Play” hit number 1 on the Korean charts and number 2 in the U.S. Their two follow ups, “Winter” and “Sailing” in 2017 and 2019 respectively, received a ton of praise and did well on the charts. AKMU has sold well over 23 million songs in South Korea alone and they’ve taken home 20 wins out of 82 nominations, including three Gaon Chart Music Awards, three Golden Disc Awards, among quite a few others. The tƒwo of them spent a lot of time in Mongolia where they were home-schooled. Eventually, they made their way back to South Korea and started a band called Akdong Musician. It was under this name that they joined the Proteurment agency, performing around the country. Eventually, they joined YG Entertainment and adopted the name AKMU, which is short for Akdong Musician. Like many k pop artists, AKMU has made several television appearances, like their appearance on K-Pop Star Season 2, where they were declared the winners..

Frequently Asked Questions about booking AKMU to perform.

Many performers, actors, speakers and other talent like AKMU, with postponed or cancelled events due to COVID-19 are now, in certain cases, considering virtual appearances via live streaming. They perhaps may accept lower fees too. If you are seriously interested in booking AKMU or other talent shown on our site, we will research their desire and the specific fee for your live-streaming event or project request.
AKMU's current work schedule and location in relation to your event's type, date, budget, and locality will play a primary factor in the acceptance of booking AKMU for your party. As long as your funding is commensurate with the price range to book AKMU, CTI will propose your event to the official agency representing AKMU. After we consult with them, we can circle back with you to provide a personal and accurate quote that includes: final costs, availability, and actual interest in being hired for your specific event or party.
CTI can give you the accurate AKMU booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book AKMU for an event?" is a frequent question we get, but the final AKMU booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we may show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will AKMU charge for an event. One example fee to book AKMU is in the starting range of $75,000-$149,999. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price too. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
CTI negotiates on behalf of professional event planners and talent buyers for paid appearances! We cannot give out direct contact information of the AKMU agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The AKMU manager and agent will only work with us if we present them with funded offers for their client to work your event.
There is low probability to book AKMU for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the AKMU agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book AKMU, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the AKMU booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for AKMU, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
