do actors get paid more/make more than idols?

k_kid rhwana Wednesday, May 17, 2017

Yeah, in general, actors get paid much more than idols. Which is why most idols try to get into acting after their singing career starts to fade or they act while they sing. For example, G-Dragon makes less than Kim Soo Hyun even though he makes money off royalties and tour and such.

ahhh..that explains idols interest in acting! why do they get paid Koreans not like kpop that much? also with international popularity ...wouldn't they make more?? for example bts? also every time I look up gdragons net worth it say he's a billionaire? and not the other members ..

Koreans do like Kpop, but the Korean music market isn't that big and that's where their problem lies in making big money. If the Korea market was like Japan or the US, right now Korean artists would most likely be making the most money in Asia in terms of music. That's why Japanese idols don't really worry about expanding outside of Japan because they make good money in their own country since they have the 2nd biggest music market after the US. A big chunk of money comes off international tours, that's why Korean artists like to promote overseas a lot. The Korean film industry is one of the biggest in Asia which is why you see Hollywood actors promoting in Korea a lot. This is why Korean actors can make a lot of money through acting. G-Dragon isn't a billionaire. Those are fake stories. G-Dragon from what I know is worth like 10-19 million or so. G-Dragon is more active so he makes more than the other members since he does more solo tours and makes more money off royalties and other money generators.

Uhh hard to explain. They don't all necessarily make more than idols but by the time idols actually debut they are already in debt by millions to their agencies for training, housing, production costs and all their clothing. That's why even after debut many still live in dorms no matter how popular and how much money they make. They are less things agencies have to pay for in order to produce actors while idols usually cost more than they might actually make. In addition the Korean film industry (or Asian in general) gets a lot of attention and is actually a very recognised industry where as KPop is still not that big although it looks like it as previously mentioned because of costs to produce it there are very few artists that are really making money especially as although KPop has international fans it costs a whole lost to travel and perform in such places. Actors are just less of an investment and are practically guaranteed to make big money especially if they star in something that becomes the latest trend. Where as music has to go through far too many hands to actually get paid a lot.

All that DOTS money... he’s probably really thankful to Kim Eun Sook, no matter what y’all say about her, no matter how crappy her scripts are

You are such a miserable inward looking small minded person. You never say anything nice about anyone here- grow up!

No, KES should thank HIM. She is not the greatest storyteller and rely a lot on the lead actors and their ability to somehow make her cringe lines cheeky and charming. SJK is the main reason why this drama is THAT successful (SKY is great but the majority of the audience is female and they tuned in to see SJK). Also, he is the only A list actor who actually believed in her project and accepted to take the risk (all the other actors refused as they didn't want to shave their hair and do a pre produce drama). So she is the lucky one and he is reaping the benefits of his talent, popularity and intelligence. SJK has worked bloody hard to get where he is now and cemented his status back in 2012 with two major hits. DOTS has only made him a big international star. He's always been a CF darling so he was pretty rich before DOTS.

I’ve said some positive things here but of course you choose to ignore them lol. Okay, oppar is soooo handsome omo good luck to your new house !! There you go. And @Sorein yes SJK was already a very loved actor with his Nice Guy and Werewolf Boy, but he got so much more recognition and caused even bigger lasting impression with DOTS. And like it or not, KES wrote that drama and she has been successful for years. So the Success of DOTS is because of both star script writer and main actors. And I tuned in for SHK because she was the only character I related to and she was awesome.

Broke bitch why not a billion dollar house!

k_kid MOM_IS_BACK Wednesday, May 17, 2017

Bill Gates doesn't even live in a billion dollar house. Warren Buffet is the 2nd richest person in the world and he lives in the same house he bought for $30,000 in 1958.
