Big Bang have made history once again!


On July 11, Forbes revealed its 'World's Highest Paid Celebrities 2016' list. Representative K-Pop group, Big Bang, proudly ranked #54 with a total of $44 million! Not only are Big Bang the first Korean artist ever to make it on the list, but in addition, the group recorded the 3rd highest earnings for a boy band in history for a single year, following Backstreet Boys and One Direction

#1. Thank you thank you Big Bang fans! #2 I feel so guilty because I wasnt able to go watch their concert this time around! So I wasn't able to contribute to their success. They are the only musicians that I actually listen to when I work out, work, sleep, and the only ones I buy the actual albums of. They freaking earned it.

I thought snsd and exo was raking in the dough since SM is always highest in stocks? Do they just mass buy their own crap and not make any profit or something?

You know all the big names and huge stars that I respect and admire have made it to the CELEB100 list since the 1990s. Oprah Winfrey, Backstreet Boys, The Beatles, The Rolling stones, NSYNC, U2, Tom Cruise, Eminem, J.K Rowling, Jay-Z, Brad Pitt, Beyonce, Adele, Ellen DeGeneres. It only makes sense that BIGBANG will end up on the list and debut so high right around in the middle and become the #3 highest paid boyband in the world. VIPs have a reason to be proud and so doe the whole of Korea.  And Kpop stans who hate Bigbang but will use BB as receipts when they fight non-kpop stans have another receipt

They deserve it. Their music is great and they don't even speak English at this point.

Most likely, I'm pretty sure it's GD. Because since he composes most of the songs he has royalty ownership of them and thus gets a lot of extra money from the royalties. Now how much in comparison? No clue. That would be hard to guess.
