Reader request. I will be adding a Pann post of the same topic under it.

Article that points out how Suzy has filmed 15 CFs since January 2012, placing her in the 'queen' title. The reason for her popularity is said to be her "bright image without any antis". Each of her CFs are estimated to be worth $500,000 USD.

1. Suzy (15)
2. Yoona, Jessica (13)
4. Tiffany (12)
5. Sooyoung, Seohyun (11)

2. miss A (16) $8 million USD

1. [+60, -24] Wow, unbelievable how Suzy can't go a day without media play

2. [+59, -28] Suzy doesn't have any antis? Don't make me laugh ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+47, -21] Suzy can't go missing a day without 365 days of media play ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+43, -20] Honestly, Suzy is about average in terms of looks compared to A Pink and other groups... It's just the difference between who you choose to promote

5. [+46, -25] Suzy overtaking Kim Tae Hee? Don't even kid me ㅋㅋ Who would believe anything like that

6. [+42, -23] I don't even remember any of the CFs Suzy has been in it

7. [+38, -21] Suzy was paid $100,000 USD for her chips CF, so where did the $500,000 USD figure come from? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ And journalist, try listing all of the 15 CFs she did ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ This is nothing but JYP media play ㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+35, -20] Gorilla's at the media play again. Suzy probably makes pennies if she has to share her income with Gorilla on top of the miss A members. Suzy is a bubble compared to SM and YG artists.

9. [+32, -18] This article's already been revealed to be manipulated. The journalist totally made up all of the CF numbers, there's no source to any of them.

10. [+24, -11] The only people that consider Suzy a 'trend' are the articles that claim her to be. It's so sad how her fans have to sit around her articles spamming comments to make her look popular. Out of the 190 comments, 90 are spam content...

11. [+30, -17] What is this media play ㅋㅋㅋ Since when was 'A day of Suzy's life' ever popular online? (TN: Article mentioned that Suzy has done so many CFs, netizens made a list of all of the items endorsed by Suzy used in every day life)

12. [+22, -10] How can she even be compared to Kim Tae Hee, is the journalist crazy? Someone who makes $500,000 per CF can dare be compared to the CF queen Kim Tae Hee who set a record of $50 million?

(I've no idea if this is media play or not, I've never counted how many CFs Suzy has done, etc. The article does not list every single CF, just the numbers and a few representative CFs.)


Pann post at the top of the rankings currently pointing out a news segment that reveals Suzy gets paid $9,000 USD per drama episode. miss A as a group also shot 6 CFs while Suzy alone has 14. An advertisement company director points out that it's more effective using Suzy instead of all of the miss A members because she's so far ahead of them in popularity.

1. [+580, -38] This is so fu*ked up ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Actress Son Hyun Joo only receives $5,000 USD per drama episode but what? Suzy gets paid $9,000? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Is she that great at acting? Talk about living off of your popularity

2. [+538, -35] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Suzy's not even that great of an actress and she's getting paid that much per episode? Wow, this is seriously too much ;; I really don't understand why dramas use idols. Just use real actors like 'School'.

3. [+43, -5] Looks like you can do anything with a pretty face ㅋ Make hundreds of thousands while sleeping in the middle of class

4. [+40, -4] I don't even know what to say to this... She's pretty but not anything to brag home about... She's not that great of a singer, not that great of an actress.. Just stick to one and do it well ㅋㅋ

5. [+39, -1] I'm a guy and I feel really sorry for the rest of the miss A members although I adore Suzy... The group should just disband if they're going to keep going like this. I don't think I even remember the other members saying more than a few lines... I don't hate miss A or anything, I just feel really bad for them.
