Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

My Singing/Composing Daughter currently has a co-written song on a hit album by a Korean singer. I've been trying to work out the potential income for her, but the Korean music market and its business practices remain opaque.

I would say, it will be interesting to see the song's impact. The European side is visible and rather good, there should be a Korean niche for that.

K-pop is a big thing even in Japan, though the audience there follows English with more difficulty.

I know a little bit about K-Pop, and I've read that quite a lot of songs come from Scandinavian songwriters and producers. Are you allowed to name the Korean singer you're referring to?

I can't say the singer's name, but the originating Finnish publishing company is connected to producer Risto Asikainen. He's had connections in the Korean pop scene for some years - and a good few hits in Finland.

It turns out that writing credits can be looked up on the Korean Music Copyright Association website, so it can't be much of a secret...

I'm sure the information is available - but I promised not to reveal the name in Finland. So that's what I will do ;-)
