SISTAR's Soyu denied rumors she's made $1 million USD! Soyu has been a part of multiple hit collaborations on top of her promotions with SISTAR, so it's not surprising the rumors are out there.

On the June 25th episode of 'Entertainment Relay', the show followed SISTAR at an amusement park, and a reporter asked Soyu if it was true her income is 1.3 billion Won (~$1 mllion USD) from her songs. She shook her hand and said, "No. Really, no."

Soyu said, "I saw that I was above Taeyeon sunbaenim. That's ridiculous. How could I make more money than Girls' Generation? People keep telling me to treat them to a meal, so I keep buying and buying but now I have nothing."

Soyou, if Sistar puts on a solo concert that I can reach, I'll be happy to give you more of my money.

The singers take in  about 6% of the profit.  Since it's a collab, then she will only get 3%.  3% of 1 million is about $30,000.  Considering all her other collabs were less popular than Some, she probably made about $100,000 from all her collabs combined.  You don't make much from singing, you have to compose and produce.

well, it's not quiet that low. new groups probably start at 30% of the profits but that goes first to pay their trainee debt. older and more successful groups probably gets a 45% share. so, assuming sistar earns $5M in gross revenues for a comeback or concert, and assuming expenses is 50%, then the profit is $2.5M. the agency gets $1.375M (55%) and sistar gets $1.125M (45%) which is about $281,000 per member. they get more for CFs since the expenses are low.

I'm only talking about songs. Singers only get about 6% of the profit of songs. The rest goes to the distributors, composers, agency, and producers.

i must admit right now she is the queen of collabs, all of the songs that she collabs is beyond success but i really really dont think she makes more than taeyeon because , taeyeon on her own makes more than the rest of all snsd  (except yoona because she is top 3 in highest paid idol including GD and IU). You can confirm it just by the number of endorsment and taeyeon is the face of many famous product and snsd still hold the record as the most highest paid idol along with 2ne1 last year based on the official statistic that i read and they had a world tour last year. So you know what i mean right. But, soyou cannot lie that she really makes a ton of money more than before :)
