SHINee charmed and entertained viewers on 'Happy Together' with their appearance as a whole team! 


The October 20 installment of 'Happy Together' hosted SHINee, Lee Kuk Ju, and Kim Ji Min. When the MCs asked SHINee, "How does profit work? Do you guys divide everything 5 ways?" Jonghyun answered, "No, we earn as much as we work." 


When Park Myung Soo asked, "Who makes the most?" Onew replied, "These days, Key works the most." 


Park Myung Soo followed up with another question, asking, "Do you ever feel like you earn less than what you expected?" Jonghyun answered again, stating, "Yeah, sometimes we do talk about that, saying, 'Isn't this month's [income] too small?'"

Park Myung Soo asked if the group sends the oldest to ask about that, and SHINee could not contain their fluster while saying, "What? To the people above?" 


Minho joined the discussion by asking, "Do you two [Yoo Jae Suk and Park Myung Soo] make a different amount even though you do the same work?" Jonghyun helped by saying, "You guys can both work 10 hours but get paid differently," causing laughter on the entire set.


Later during the show, Onew showed off his bottle opening skills by opening a bottle with a tray, impressing everyone. Key also showed off his skill by speaking in a fluent Daegu satoori (accent).

I dont think any of them are making as much money as our might expect, but they're definitely living comfortably. they ikely get a lot of designer items for free, but jong was able you buy a Lamborghini so you know they're not hard up for cash.

EVERYONE, they said 'THESE DAYS Key works the most' It doesn't necessarily mean overall, come on they won't reveal it that bluntly

I thought it'd be Jonghyun but it also makes sense that Key is clocking in more considering his other stuff besides music. Shinee have been around long enough to live comfortably though.

You'd think that at this point they would be swimming in money while throwing coins to the filthy peasants like me. But I guess not all celebs have golden spoons.

They might not be the richest people out there, but I'm sure they're living comfortably.

That doesn't make any sense! Jong Hyun is a songwriter, he should get royalties

and he does? what part of article said he doesnt? Just bc he gets royalties doesnt mean he earns the most. Key is SHINee's creative director. Plus other members write for SHINee albums too. He isnt the only one getting royalties

They don't have a fixed salary, they earn more when they work more. Right now Key works in a drama, on tv and as an editor for a magazine, then earn the most. But maybe last month Minho earned more because he also worked in a drama. Jonghyun probably has the most stable earnings because he works every day as a DJ and he has a lot of royalties, but that doesn't mean that he always gains more than others.

they are not saying its always like this, they are talking about right now. i mean i'm sure jjong earned the most when he was promoting his solo album. or minho the most when he gets paid for the movies etc.

royalties in korea aren't actually that big because the songs are quite cheap digitally. they earn more with physical albums.

Royalties even in America generally aren't of much worth either. To earn a lot of money for songwriting is extremely difficult.

I thought it was jonghyun because he did many solo and minho because he's casted in dramas

tbh i was actually assuming it'd be Jonghyun but now that i think about it Key really does so much so it makes sense that he earns the most

I know Key has been in a drama recently but what else has he done? I don't follow Shines but I thought Taemin and Jonghyun might make the most because Taemin has been active with his solo debut in Japan, "Hit the stage" etc.. and Jonghyun seems to have been pretty active too.

It's the SM way of life, getting paid too little.
