Seriously AKP, please check your articles, 2 weeks ago, you posted an almost identical article about Naver announcing this news, and it was 100 billion KRW which is 83 Million USD.

Now this article is the same, but since its an announced by SM, so fine , its 2 different article about the same thing, but you got the conversion wrong this time?

Um there's a big mistake in the conversion. 100 billion is not $838k, it's $83 million. Not sure if billion is a typo and it should be million? 100 billion is A LOT of money.
