With the quality of advertisements climbing ever upwards, more celebrities are earning greater pay just by signing contracts as CF models. Money Today's enterprise team recently compiled data and created a ranked list of exactly how much top celebrities earn through CF deals by categorizing them into three classes (A to C), which range from $9,000 USD to over $200,000 USD. According to this list, the top stars who earned the greatest income from CFs alone in the past year were Lee Young Ae, Go Hyun Jung, Jung Ji Hoon, Big Bang's T.O.P, Kim Tae Hee, Kim Ji Hyun and Jo In Sung. Technically speaking, musician Seo Tae Ji actually topped the charts by a fair amount. However, since Seo Tai Ji did not participate in a CF last year, and the figure is really only a "suggesting price", it was difficult to fully compare his figure with other stars'. When analyzing groups, Big Bang came out first with $970,000 USD, beating out the likes of SNSD and the Wonder Girls. The full chart was categorized into three classes, A to C, which contained the earnings of just under 1,000 singers, actors, idols and sports stars. The data was from one single year, and was provided by advertising agencies whose main jobs were to hire celebrities for corporate CFs. "Class A" consisted of celebrities who earned over $400,000 USD; "Class B" consisted of those who earned between $178,000 USD and $400,000 USD; meanwhile, "Class C" was for stars who earned under $178,000 USD. Analyzing both males and females together, only 69 of out 869 celebrities (7.9%) were categorized in "Class A", while 60% of the celebrities were classed under "Class C". Stars that were categorized under "Class A" include Jung Ji Hoon, Won Bin, Jang Dong Gun, Ahn Sung Gi, Kim Tae Hee, Moon Geun Young and Kim Tae Hee. Only ten celebrities aged over 40 were grouped in "Class A"; the remaining celebrities were in their 30s and 20s respectively. Finally, a total of 10 idol groups were calculated to be earning over $400,000 USD.
