1. [+255, -8] Aigoo... while others have to work to their bones to make that in a year, they make it in one episode ㅋㅋ no wonder everyone and their parents are trying to get their kids to become celebrities... ㅋㅋ Since in this life, I was born with this face and forced to a fate where I have to work hard for my money, please let me be born with a pretty face and talents in my next life.. ㅋ

2. [+246, -27] Song Hye Gyo makes 60 million won per episode... which means she makes nearly 10 billion won off of a 16 episode mini series.. and she still tried to evade taxes? ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+185, -14] A few of these really don't deserve that pay. Just because they're top stars, they can get away with poor acting and no work for the past 10 years, just relying on their pretty faces to pick up CF deals and get top star treatment everywhere else.

4. [+34, -9] Yoona's a horrible actor and doesn't even have any successful dramas, why does she receive so much?

5. [+33, -11] Choi Ji Woo, Yoona, Shin Min Ah, Kim Tae Hee, and Suzy receive way too much for their actual skill level. Son Hyun Joo's amazing at acting and I'm sure she barely makes 10 million won an episode..

1. [+3,016, -51] I'm okay with them receiving this much and the dramas doing well... what I'm not okay with is dramas spending more than half of their expense budget on paying these celebrities such high guarantees and then not being able to pay the rest of the cast and production crew.

2. [+2,132, -115] Jun Ji Hyun receives that much?? Hul

3. [+1,614, -154] But all Kim Tae Hee did was lay there...

4. [+437, -13] There are so many celebrities who receive way more than they deserve ㅋㅋㅋ I remember Song Seung Hun was offered 'Thousand Days' Promise' but he demanded 80 million won per episode so it went to Kim Rae Won who contracted for 50 million won per episode. At the time, actors like Han Suk Gyu and Shin Ha Gyun were shooting 'Deep-Rooted Tree' and 'Brain' at barely 20 million won per episode ㅋㅋ

5. [+429, -26] And how many of those actresses actually deserve that pay

6. [+428, -30] Celebrities make stupid amounts of money. This is just crossing a line... there are so many people out there suffering for every cent they earn. I think some of these pays need to be brought down... the world shouldn't revolve around them.

7. [+452, -56] How can you make 1 million won per episode....... they make more than a CEO's salary of an average company;;
