We are already well aware that Big Bang have long been established as one of the biggest acts in K-Pop.

Thus, it comes as no big surprise that the group profited over $44 million USD in the last year, which is even higher than the $33.5 million USD earnings of American pop rock unit Maroon 5. Or so Forbes staff writer Zack O'Malley Greenburg reported. In his introductory piece of K-Pop's recent global phenomenon and Big Bang being at the forefront of it all, Greenburg also discloses that Big Bang will be on the 'Forbes Celebrity 100' list, which will be revealed next week. 


From Forbes:


"The top act in its niche, Bigbang took home $44 million in pretax earnings over the past year, easily more than the $33.5 million collected by today's highest-paid American all-male arena pop group, Maroon 5. 


Bigbang will be appearing on the upcoming FORBES Celebrity 100 list (due out July 12th), though that's more attributable to the popularity of the group's music than the depth of its members' business savvy.


'We made more than Maroon 5?' says front man Kwon 'G-Dragon' Jiyong, 27, through a translator. 'Did not know that. My mom is in charge of my earnings.'"


I mean, Big Bang doesn't need some list to prove their success and popularity but it's quite an achievement to be celebrated all the same! Keep on keeping at it, boys!

They totally deserve this. To think that they don't sing in total English at this point. They'd be monsters if they did.

They did but it was only for a "greatest hits" album. No new material to see.
