It's safe to assume that Big Bang earned a heck of lot in sales this year, what with all of their single albums, 'M', 'A', 'D' and 'E'. But how much revenue did they earn exactly?


The latest episode of 'Myeong Dan Gong Gae' did the calculations for us. The show estimated that Big Bang earned a profit of a whopping 150 billion won, which amounts to over 126 million U.S. dollars. Yes, you read that number correctly.


That number was calculated from the album sales from the four single albums of 6.2 billion won (approx. $5.2 million U.S.), music downloads amounting to 5.2 billion won (approx. 4.4 million U.S.), and their world tour profit to 140 billion won (approx. 118 million U.S.) for a total of 150 billion won.

Go Big Bang!

Well, I predicted they generate USD 123 Million before. This is close and it is higher than I expected. So yeah ^_^

I attended MADE world tour here in my country. And its an amazing concert. I would love to come to their MADE world tour Part 2 if they doing that in 2016. ;

PS you know why older people tend not to be fans of YG? ; because trying so hard to be what you're not makes us cringe and we see the fakeness. ; you all think oppa and unni are so cool. ; we see try hard wannabe american rappers/singers. ; nobody tries harder to copy american entertainers than YG. ; its sad.

ooops that was in reply to ceecee87

smokeee Thursday, December 17, 2015

@ceecee87 its true. thats why people dont dress with sagging pants down on their butt and act so try hard when they're older. they grow out of it. too bad you haven't but like i said most adults do and recognize them as try hards being what they're not to be cool.

you go girl !! @ceecee87

smokeee Friday, December 18, 2015

@ceecee87 barely any older koreans like BB or anyone from YG. stop lying to yourself. you're one of those fanfic delusional stans here who make up whatever you want to believe. its obvius YG caters to the teeny bopper stans into boys who wear saggy pants and act try hard black.

ladyswan Saturday, December 19, 2015

@smokeee at least 9 million south korean people love to buy BIGBANG's song on Gaon.

ladyswan Saturday, December 19, 2015

@smokeee not to mention how the Nation MC Mr.Yoo Jaesuk like to cover Bae Bae song 3 times on broadcast. Last time I checked Mr.Yoo Jaesuk is an older koreans and not an immature teenager.

L_catzzz Saturday, December 19, 2015

@smokeee LOL. Are you sure you're not the one who's being delusional stans here? Coz I'm pretty sure Melon, Gaon, & Naver told the otherwise. Even the new akp new article on a survey coming from 4000 SK people regarding "Which Kpop Hit songs deemed as Song of The Year" chose Bigbang as the no1 contender while most of the others songs in the Top10 list are what people would consider "elderly" style, and yet Bigbang still came up as no 1. Also, GD is the only Kpop idols to be the special guest for Infinite Challenge Music Festival 3 times in a row consistently. That's pretty much shows you the actual general public demand for him and not just some rabid teenagers. That sagging pants is what you called Hip hop style. Just bcoz I don't wear stuffs like doesn't mean I don't enjoy their songs nor does I have to wear like that just bcoz I like their songs. You should see Show Me The Money 4 episode 1. That will show you how many people would willing to be in the line for the first audition, and you can determine the age demographics for yourself.

How do u know they're only famous among young people? lol so hard. I live in korea and they're the only kpop idol group along with snsd that are known from the range age of 1-60 years old. Even my landlord lady (age 64) knows them lol for goodness sake u're making ur opinion sounds like it's a fake. Besides they don't go only for hephap song lol. All of their ballad songs actually hv been attracting the older age people in korea like the song lies, haru haru and many more. Stop being butthurt

Ramzia Saturday, December 19, 2015

@Ramzia *fact

L_catzzz Saturday, December 19, 2015

@Ramzia Ikr. Taeyang R&B style surely encompasess a whole other wide range of demographics. Daesung trot, classical & rock style also attracted another different sets of people. Match with EDM/techno style of GD with hip hop with ballad and etc3, Bigbang has able to attract a lot of different people from various demographics. I don't even live in Korea, but it's so blatantly obvious about their status in SK. I've went to SK once last year, and I don't even expect to see so many ahjussis in their 40's with suits and briefcases to actually watch Bigbang Hologram Concert (it's not even a real concert, just holograms). But it happen, and it's about 20-30% of them throughout the whole audiences. It makes me feel uncomfortable though...it's like watching with your Appa than with your Oppa :p

They are legend...but how bts mocked them still haunting me...how come that ugly nugu did that to them and even no apology?

ladyswan Thursday, December 17, 2015

Troll ^^

If only YG released the full album, they would've earned more! Dx

Nicklaus Thursday, December 24, 2015

I guess they wanted new songs rather than those already released... 3 yrs later lol

LillyD Wednesday, December 16, 2015

I'm happy for them. They started from zero to hero. All of the hard work are being payed. ;

SoOnePanda Tuesday, December 15, 2015

You know YG doesn't really need other artists, they just need Big Bang. ;

L_catzzz Saturday, December 19, 2015

Unfortunately it's true.
