On October 1, MBC aired a special documentary about the sitcom 'New Nonstop' from 2000. The production starring Park Kyung Lim, Jo In Sung, Jang Na Ra, Yang Dong Geun, Kim Jung Hwa, and more was an extremely popular sitcom. At the time, Jo In Sung was a super rookie, who've only played a minor role in one drama all his career.
Jo In Sung recalled the old days, and said, "I was 20... 21-years-old then. I didn't know anything."
He then shared, "I don't know if this can be broadcasted but I made 200,000 KRW (180 USD) per episode at the time. It aired 5 times a week so I made 4 million KRW (3,599 USD) per month. I made 2 million KRW (1,799 USD) after giving a share to my management company."
Jo In Sung continued, "I was able to do a lot with that money. A stable income was very important to me. It was a good thing. I thought, 'Wow I've succeeded'. My parents were very happy."
