Who are the richest idols?


Article: 'Good Morning' Choi Siwon-G-Dragon chosen as 'chaebol idols stars'

Source: TV Report via Naver [anyone feeling deja vu with a certain pann the other week]

Choi Siwon, JYJ, G-Dragon, BoA, Goo Hara...

Rich by birth: Sooyoung, Jinwoon, Yookyung, Hyungshik

Royalties: 1. G-Dragon, 2. Kang Ta, 3. Junhyung

1. [+126, -23] Honestly, from an objective point of view, G-Dragon should be #1 considering that all of the money he posseses was earned by himself.

2. [+100, -6] Stop putting out articles like this. It only makes everyone and their mothers aspire to be idols, which only saturates the market even more. Only the absolute minority can get a taste of this kind of wealth.

3. [+101, -8] There are a lot more salarymen than chaebols in Korea. Show what the life is like for salarymen. I'm sitting here at work on this Monday morning and I'm already at a loss of will after reading about 20 year old chaebols.

4. [+90, -1] There clearly needs to be a distinction between idols who are rich simply because their parents are and idols who are rich because they earned that money.

5. [+86, -7] I can understand up to Siwon, G-Dragon, JYJ, and BoA, but Goo Hara....? I guess being pretty really does pay well... ㅋ

6. [+79, -8] Goo Hara??????;;;

7. [+70, -0] No wonder everyone wants to be a celebrity

8. [+68, -2] The reason Suzy isn't on this list is because no matter how many individual activities she does, JYP makes her share with the other members ㅋ

9. [+64, -2] Do the SM idols all get some jaw elongating work done? Kang Ta, Siwon, Yunho... all of their chins just keep getting longer.

10. [+72, -10] How is Junhyung in 3rd???ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
- Royalties, featurings, writing lyrics etc etc

  2. '9. [+64, -2] Do the SM idols all get some jaw elongating work done? Kang Ta, Siwon, Yunho... all of their chins just keep getting longer. '


    LOL I've been wondering what happened to Siwon's and Yunho's jaws, they were better before.

    ReplyDelete
  3. oh.. another "my oppa is richer than your oppa" post.. brb

    ReplyDelete
  4. idk about yunho but siwon's face looks botoxed as hell lately. he looks like a wax figure now. an unattractive wax figure.

    ReplyDelete
  5. goo hara lol.....crap, they mentioned JYJ....*runs for cover*

    ReplyDelete
  6. yes, Gdragon is the richest idol in Korea.

    ReplyDelete
  7. LOLED SO HARD "Do the SM idols all get some jaw elongating work done? Kang Ta, Siwon, Yunho... all of their chins just keep getting longer. "

    ReplyDelete
  8. really? i havent seen much of them lately.....but i doubt sm encourages jaw shaving for GUYS, takes away all of their masculinity....i mean, you might as well cut of their testicles and go all the way with the sex change

    ReplyDelete
  9. netizenbuzz loves these kind of post.. more fanwars .. more views... more $

    ReplyDelete
  10. BoA has more money than JYJ members together.

  12. GD your fav>>>>>
    I AM HOLLERING AT #9 SIWON DOES LOOK BOTOXED DOWN LMAO!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I still do not understand how some fans (especially gd fans) can fight about who has more money lol

    these idols are rich..enjoy it

    ReplyDelete
  14. Siwon is the richer than GD actually. Gdragon is the richest idol off royalties.

  17. 'No wonder everyone wants to be a celebrity'
    it's the "easy" way to gaim money in S.Korea

    ReplyDelete
  18. I cant agree more. Siwon looks so much better in his old days, now he looks like .. I don't know, I cringe a lot to see his jaw these days, it's ood.

    ReplyDelete
  19. G-dragon is the #1; Again XD

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm sure yoona( prob most of snsd) and Suzy are richer than hara

    ReplyDelete
  21. LOL Lee Hyori is richer than Boa and IU has more millions than Hara.

    ReplyDelete
  22. ??NB translates what's up in pann. I saw that post in pann today before NB put it up. it's not like she purposely dug up specific posts of a similar money theme to get people upset. At least, I don't see how fanwars are going to help ANYONE in the long run.

    ReplyDelete
  23. A lot YG stans tend to put a lot of emphasis on money and materialistic values. "My oppar is wearing this new givenchy jacket so rich" and all that shit like it's relevant and they brag like that money is paying their bills. People say they're arrogant, I just think a lot of them are basic and materialistic tbh.

    ReplyDelete
  24. g dragon spent his money on drugs :/

    ReplyDelete
  25. Netizenbuzz is translating it for international fans, not for money.

    ReplyDelete
  26. are you a troll? all i see is a stream of nonstop posts coming from you

    ReplyDelete
  27. fanwars and antis are funny

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think it's reasonable to look good within budget. You don't have to have branded goods on you to make a statement. In fact, I would prefer if my idols wore affordable clothing, it draws fans closer to a more relatable level.

    ReplyDelete
  29. to be honest G Dragon is a role model for everyone...

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hyori isn't richer than boa. Boas stock in sm is worth 10 million by itself.

    ReplyDelete
  31. ....... shinee. That is all.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Not the way SM stocks are going lately, lbr

    ReplyDelete
  33. LOL dont be naive
    why you think the blog have ads? lol
    this is not bad ,she want money..she uses her skills

    ReplyDelete
  34. wait, dow does NB make money? I dont see any ads

    ReplyDelete
  35. I predict JYJ bashing and fanwars on the comments coming in 3...2...1

  36. 2. [+100, -6] Stop putting out articles like this. It only makes everyone and their mothers aspire to be idols, which only saturates the market even more. Only the absolute minority can get a taste of this kind of wealth.



    THIS. a million times.......there are only so many fangirls they can exploit, the ones who fail are screwed for life because theyre not specially trained for anything other than singing and dancing

    ReplyDelete
  37. dont jinx it.....just the mere mention of JYJ will send the comment count into the 100's

    ReplyDelete
  38. lol you must be blind, then. I just saw 3 here on my screen.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I see you trying to create fanwars, troll. Not working, no one is comparing them.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yunho has always had a long jaw! the members and SM town used to make fun of him during TVXQ's earlier years saying that his face looked like an alien becuz of his long face and jaw! its nothing new! his jaw does get more prominent when he loses weight like back in 2008 but in 2011, when he gained weight, his face looked chubby and u could barely see a hint of his jaw

    ReplyDelete
  41. Means you come from a family that owns a corporation, super rich family.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Aww why you gotta be stealing my name buddy?

  45. I seriously dont see anything at all. Maybe its a browser thing. Im running firefox btw.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I think you can be a fashionista and have no style whatsoever. Fashion = who you wear. Style = How you wear it. And tbh, most of the time I think YGs style is wack, just a bunch of expensive clothes thrown on and lots of flashy shit, you know? And people think it's amazing because it's the latest off of such and suchs line and costs $$$$$$$ when I can go to the thrift shop and style myself better for 50 bucks. But that's me. I'm not going to fawn because your shits expensive and has a tag with a brand name on it.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Minus the weed thing. And the hair. The clothes. And the plagiarism.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Musically, sure. But I think his person or image is that of an immature spoiled brat who complains a lot and tries to convince the world he's badass with curse words and middle fingers which only teenagers huddle together and giggle about how cool "oppa" is for doing that. But he's very talented, too bad he doesn't use that talent to write music that can actually make a difference but feed into generic commercialism while using hip-hop as his costume jewerly

    ReplyDelete
  49. GD is not the richest idol in Korea. He is the richest when it comes to royalties, but he is not the richest.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Yet you'll be the one complaining when NB takes down the site because of people like you throwing jabs and shade at her.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Siwon's FAMILY is rich.....i dont think what he earned as a member of super junior even compares to GD.....

    ReplyDelete
  52. Siwon family is rich, he'll own it someday. GD can't reach it with artist career but he's rich enough by himself.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Why do they understand Siwon but not Goo Hara. It's not like Siwon is amazing at dancing, singing etc. they both live off of their pretty faces.

    ReplyDelete
  54. but that's not the point. It's about who's the richest idol, not the one who cannot sing or dance.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I don't know, in 2011, he even beats Lee Seung Gi to become Highest Earned Artist, and BIGBANG isn't active much that year I think.

    ReplyDelete
  56. That's weird because I'm running firefox also and on the left there is Rental Airport cars, Google chrome and social network ads.

    ReplyDelete
  57. "I'm sitting here at work on this Monday morning and I'm already at a loss of will after reading about 20 year old chaebols."

    i feel you. T_T but again, i probably wouldn't get a life as simple, laid-back, and happy as now if i were a 2nd gen conglomerates. so let's just work hard~! kkk xD

    ReplyDelete
  58. KARA earns a lot in Japan, Suju earns a lot through albums, etc.etc.


    They both make sense, so why is one less deserving than the other?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Is it in every country? Famous people is usually rich :/

    ReplyDelete
  60. He's still not the richest. If you're talking about royalties he is, but as idols go in general, he is not.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Siwon made more money than all SJ members combined. This is something that all SJ members acknowledged. He has a lot of pretty big CF deals. He recently even got chosen as Audi Korea's ambassador. Not to mention all the dramas and movie he has been having. We are talking about the individual here and not a group.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Can you not read? Gdragon is rich of royalties as I already said, but by far he is not the richest idol because there are people like Siwon who will inherit their families riches. So come back later to defend oppa when you can read and comprehend what I have already said.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Siwon's pay comes from way way more that Album sales or anything music......

    ReplyDelete
  64. Yeah, still nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Your opinion. He's such a hardworking man in such young age, polite, super nice with his family and close people (and yet get loved by them a lot). Yes he's young and sometimes I can't agree with his "be free whatever". But overall, he's an icon of "making your dream comes true" for young people, I admire him a lot, not as fangirl or anything.

    A Korean writer called him "the next cutural icon" (after Seo Taiji), GD is living a true young life wih high and sometimes low , he has his own impact. It's something.

    BTW, many idols are working hard, as much as young Korean who is
    studying hard for their future, everyone is born with some talents and
    choose their own road, I wish the K-netizen just get that and stop hating on the idols who's at the same age of a lot of them and simply choose a different path with them.

    ReplyDelete
  66. How much work is blatantly copying other people?

    ReplyDelete
  67. wow.....you seem to have a different idea of 'wealth' than i do......just because siwon's family is wealthy does not in turn, make HIM wealthy....if he is in fact set to inherit that wealth, that means that his parents to pass on first before he can claim it as his....take a seat

    ReplyDelete
  68. Think whatever you want, it's discussed many times, people will keep their own opinion, just let see what remain in the future :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. This is random, but NB is a HE

    ReplyDelete
  70. Yeah, keep arguing who's the richest. It's free but you don't make any PROFIT from it XD. Do what netizen buzz do, be creative than arguing. You will never ever know exactly their income :p

    ReplyDelete
  71. Random but the YG artist also wear a lot of cheap items as I see, if it suits they will wear.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I never said anything about him and how hard he works, I'm sure he works hard just as any other idol works hard, and there are LOTS more non-idols who work harder than him in Korea who are younger than him and are less privileged Tbh, I really don't understand you're reason for replying. Is it to convince me that my opinion is flawed? Or...to defend him? I'm not denying he's hard-working, I'm not denying he is not talented, and I'm sure he is an icon for a lot of young people, and I'm sure he is polite but at the same time - he is not a revolutionist. The boundaries he tests are boundaries within fashion and the formats of his music. Which is sad because he could do so much more, but he sticks to redundancy and basics. And the image he projects is not to be excused by age because I know a lot of people younger than him who's maturity level is double his. He has the prince syndrome, spoiled brat complaining when things don't go his way, thinks saying fuck or shit makes him cool "badass" and is stuck in this teenage rebellious phase of desperately trying to show the world how much he doesn't care when he is really insecure using Hip-Hop as costume jewelry instead of understanding the culture as a whole and representing it in such a stereotypical incorrect manner. My opinion of him remains the same, regardless of yours because I see past just the fact that he is talented because lots of people are talented in this world.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Why do you feel the need to compare Hara to anyone else while she is already right there with those names? Why picked on Siwon when you clearly doesn't klnow really well about his individual activities. If you feel comment 5 seems to have doubt on Hara, then give out your facts how Hara earns her income to defend her, to convince readers. You will never be able to make your point come across by insulting others. And this childish argument definitely will not make Hara look better.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Netizen Buzz is a girl...

    ReplyDelete
  75. Fanwars are not funny. Especially when people argue about complete bullshit like whos oppa is richer,who sells the most, who perfumed in japan. its not funny. if you like that stuff then you have issues.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I don't see any ads. i run google chrome with adblock plus. however when i go to use a browser w/o adblock i see ads on NB

    ReplyDelete
  77. you're not funny. grow up.

    ReplyDelete
  78. don't feed the troll!!~~

    ReplyDelete
  79. who cares about that. people should stop looking so hard at their face.

    ReplyDelete
  80. [+86, -7] I can understand up to Siwon, G-Dragon, JYJ, and BoA, but Goo
    Hara....? I guess being pretty really does pay well... ㅋ


    I can guess who made this comment. Excuse me, what's the different between the first and last person you mentioned here ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I see no difference.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Based on their pictures from childhood, even baby ptctures ... No, they didn't get jaw elongating work done. Unless they photoshoped these old pics ??? Oh my, silly me!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Mkay, I will take my seat and sip on some lemonade while you defend oppas wealth because it obviously means so much to you and pays your bills as well.

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  83. Its not an opinion though....

    ReplyDelete
  84. Well isn't everyone who criticizes GD pressed? We must all ride is bedazzled dick into the sunsets of Compton if we are to not be pressed.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Yes I also saw the things about him you point out. My point is that just how we see them (Like in a scene of One of A Kind MV, when he sits at the table, it shows two different opinions on him).

    In 2009, I'm not fan of him, maybe dislike (even I like his songs like "A Boy" and "She's gone"), because I saw him as a cocky kid at first. But after GD&TOP (the album I like a lot), I read more about him and BIGBANG, all the bad and good things. His positive side won over the negetive for me and become likeness/fan. If it didn't for you, it's ok, I just want to point out his positive side in the lastest comment.

    ReplyDelete
  86. kangta who produce albums for many singers in the past.even nick carter of backstreetboys once asked him to participate in his new album but he declined. i remember hot got invited to MTV Music Awards several times before they disbanded. kangta has more fans than dbsk domestically and internationally(most of them from china) before the enlistment. now he lay low so others can make their mark.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I know his positive side already but that doesn't mean I can't have an opinion about the negative.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Money mean success which fans somehow equate to talent.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Thats being unfair. She's been in the business longer

    ReplyDelete
  90. nah jang nara is richer than the ones you mentioned.but hyori is the biggest earner of all of them nowadays. jangnara's popularity through singing and acting activities in the past cant be matched by ses and finkl. shes probably hide his wealth outside of korea since k-media always bring the topic every year.

    ReplyDelete
  91. You seem like a pressed fan who is upset by what @disqus_i71mCeUvtL:disqus is saying and trying to cover it up by calling HEH pressed. There is nothing "pressed" about their comments, merely opinions/criticisms. If you can't handle that, you really need to grow the fuck up. They didn't downgrade his talent, or say he sucks, they pointed out the flawed aspects of GD. You're the pressed one here. Your "lol" doesn't hide it. Learn to accept an opinion you don't like, that will get you far in life.

    ReplyDelete
  92. But blatantly copying other people is not an opinion, esp if you have the receipts I don't know why GD fans try to act like he doesn't copy people and its just an opinion that he does...

    ReplyDelete
  93. do you have ad block?

    ReplyDelete
  94. Not at all since everyone knows Siwon came from a rich family.

    ReplyDelete
  95. no Yoona? everyone said she's like Korean Idol chaebol or something like that.

    ReplyDelete
  96. many people do. the fact is, we just cant stop looking at their face. It's there for a reason.

    ReplyDelete
  97. - Choi Siwon, JYJ, G-Dragon, BoA, Goo Hara... are those who earn their own money
    - Rich by birth: Sooyoung, Jinwoon, Yookyung, Hyungshik

    ReplyDelete
  98. I think it's just the BB cream...

    ReplyDelete
  99. Can't remember them all but ex in the Crayon MV, alot of the items GD used are cheap, $12-$200

    ReplyDelete
  101. well Sorry losers all you can doi is complain ..hahaha while HARA getting richer day by day OOOPS she has 2 new Magazine Cover this Month Anyway

    ReplyDelete
  102. Ummm... That's cheap? Only his accessories besides the 800 dollar belt are cheap. His clothes are up in the 300-700$ range

    ReplyDelete
  103. tsk tsk... i think you delusional too much

    ReplyDelete
  104. I remember they usually wear cheap clothes many times but don't keep the detail links (if you want you can check http://bigbangswaq.com/ for some).

    Actually most of expensive items famous idols like SNSD, BIGBANG wear, are sponsored by the brands. And, beauty is in your eyes, what's ugly in your eyes can be beautiful in others' eyes.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Safe to say that people shouldn't comment on GD's true value, wealth or if he is a good role model because VIPs and YG stans will bite.

    ReplyDelete
  106. So you link me to a page full of brand name designers and the price tags consistent of 1000s of dollars to prove your case? Why are you lecturing me about beauty when I said nothing about it?

    ReplyDelete
  107. because siwon has a lot of solo activities.. kara is successful but that money is divided amongst the members, so why is hara the only one on this list. all the idols here have a lot of solo work which is why hara looks out of place. she isn't even one of the CF queens (like yoona or suzy) which it's a bit odd that she would be on this list

    ReplyDelete
  108. You misunderstood my comment.

    ReplyDelete
  109. You can't have an opinion about GD/YG if its not a positive one when it comes to YG stans/Vips. They can't handle it.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Because you rarely see Hara work outside of group things and modeling/CF. While Siwon you see him act in a ton of dramas, group work, modeling/CFs and such. Not going to lie this is my first time seeing Hara on these kinds of lists

    ReplyDelete
  111. I can see that with my downvote.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Hmm, I think we can separate the sponsored vs their own items. Surely brands would love exposure and sponsorship is definitely going to come, but the important thing is perhaps their own personal items? I dunno what GD owns, but perhaps within his own collection he has a good bit of expensive stuff and some cheaper ones.

    But I guess what people don't like is when stars only exclusively go for branded goods, like cheap items lowers their standard or something. Personally I don't know any star who goes for specifically only branded, but I can imagine there be materialistic people like that. Even among citizens, regular working people, there are ALSO people who only carry branded stuff.

    To me, that's like meh. Bottomline, I wish stars stay true to themselves, wear what they want, not because of name. If they ARE themselves, and branded things represent them, then I'll accept that too.

    ReplyDelete
  113. That's hardly ever the case because their companies want them to look presentable. They want their groups to stand out from others. If they wear basics that cost less than 10 bucks it won't make them any better individuals then someone who wears head-to-toe designer. It shouldn't really matter because its their own money and they can do whatever they want with it. I like to spoil myself from time to time with my own money and it doesn't make me less than someone that just wears basics because they don't wear anything designer.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Siwon has been in multiple dramas and CF's since debut and keeps getting more but Goo Hara has only been in one drama and also doesn't have that many CF deals.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Except, designer clothes tend to come with superiority complex in any society, the value of your clothes determines a lot of things. 10$ don't get that level of admiration and appreciation.

    ReplyDelete
  116. you must be new, aren't you? you can check the old article (I forgot which one) he said he's a man.

    ReplyDelete
  117. You are over analyzing my comment. I was commenting on the netz' comment, not this article.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Siwon was also "born rich," his family owns some medical company I think and Siwon is in a lot of dramas outside of Korea. He had some Taiwanese dramas and he's in SJ & SJ-M which promotes a lot outside Korea as well.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I thought NB was a girl (by the way he/she phrases his/her words) until I read that NB is a guy then I accepted that. But then under the FAQ on this site, it says "I'm one person and am a Korean American female. You can call me NB. I
    have friends who are Korean translators in other fandoms and news sites
    who I work with to double check content as needed." and now I'm REALLY confused.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Of course it does. I get that. I just personally feel whether they wear 10 dollar clothing or 1000 dollar clothing doesn't matter and it shouldn't be anything to admire or to appreciate.

    ReplyDelete
  121. why people vote down...I did not say I just laugh c'mon...why so serious

    ReplyDelete
  122. not in my country...we do not buy album or download song....except 3-4 celebrities...many people try to be popular to find rich man ahahha true story

    ReplyDelete
  123. kara release a lot of japanese stuff and japanese people have the most legal download rate in the world...Also hara takes a lot japanese magazines and advertising...suzy share her money with missa members

    ReplyDelete
  124. The shoes and the frankenstein outfit he wore are Thom Browne.. Do you even know how much these cost?
    Not less than 5000$

    ReplyDelete
  125. Her mother owns a big women's undergarment company, his father co-owns a company in Japan, most of the ELFs appaerantly identified as Hyundai Department Store based on some stuff.
    His father is also a professor in Dongguk University and CEO of Boryung Pharmaceutical.

    Some fangirls and people can't accept how hard money is earn in many cases. But Siwon's father is seriously rich, above than the entertain ent industry.

    ReplyDelete
  126. I admit that I was shocked seeing Hara on the list among Siwon JYJ GD and BoA.
    Hara you don't have to overwork yourself and earn more. Junhyung is rich enough for you.

    ReplyDelete
  127. I'm not new.. i have been on this site ever since the very first article they posted.. regarding the whole t-ara scandal.
    she is a girl.
    read her faq
    she says that she is a korean american female.

    ReplyDelete
  128. THIS. I read that too. I think I'm more comfortable to perceive NB as a girl.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Not one of these again... not even gonna bother reading the comments here.

    ReplyDelete
  130. what is "chaebol idol stars"?

    ReplyDelete
  131. People Criticize KARA goo HARA but They get richer day by day..

    i found this one while lurking at AKP http://forums(DOT)allkpop(DOT)com/threads/karas-latest-car.150720/

    ReplyDelete
  132. Stop talking about his family wealth if you want any good for him. The more you talk about it, the more hate he gets and you already know why. Nobody knew how wealthy his family is until one business journalist needed to search and learn about the new CEO of one of the Korea biggest companies; only then that she/he knew this CEO has a son named CSW who happens to be a member of the famous SJ group. Until recently, the media has started to dig in but they still cannot really know how rich his family is.
    He has been on his own since the day he convinced his family let him join SM training classes after secretly went to audition and passed. They allowed him with one condition that he has to be responsible for his own life. He’s making his own name. So, this is what he earns; otherwise, they would put him in 'Rich by birth:' category.

  133. I don't follow SJ or i am their utmost fan, my sisters tells me about SJ and Big Bang all the time, more like nagging.

    I honestly didn't know how his family wealth came into spotlight.

  134. Siwon's family is indeed wealthy, but it's not like he doesn't have money of his own. He has his dramas plus a lot of solo CFs and endorsement deals apart from the chunk he gets off of Super Junior's earnings. So yeah, he very well may be the richest idol. His rich kid background helped him outrank GD, though, who earned everything on his own.

  147. I'm using firefox and I see an ad for a University and an ad for Journey's Shoes on the right underneath the "Popular|Tags|Archive" buttons.

    NB makes money because of the ads but it shouldn't matter, this is still a great blog regardless.

  148. and suddenly jyj has so much money while dbsk is nowhere to see.. hm.. mysterious... :o

  152. Yeh, I agree. The latest shawing of their jaws went too far. Yunho looked quite handsome after his debut. After a long time, i saw his pic lately and was so negativelly surprised. It was not neccessary. Whoever gave him such advice, should burn in hell.

  160. KARA should be grateful that DSP is not as powerful as the big 3, that is the reason the company comply to their law suit and give them more share of the profit, the bad thing for that is the company doesn't got more money to support other groups like Rainbow, A-Jax and Purrety.

  161. stop making yourself look uneducated

  162. Dramas, I know. But people make much more money in Japan than Korea's music market, because of harsher copyright and music laws, so it makes sense for Hara to be rich too.

    ReplyDelete
  163. no because yoona has only been ranking in the real money the past two years

    ReplyDelete
  164. all you losers arguing or bragging abt nugu is richer than nugu makes me laugh. because you obviously don't know for sure any of their net worth nor it's a concern of yours because no matter how rich your oppars are you aren't going to get a piece of the pie

  165. "all of their chins keep getting longer"

  166. 1. Oniontaker is an SNSD stan and only people who can't think for themselves quote Oniontaker as if he has any kind of authority or expertise on these subject matters.

    2. Not all the idols listed here have ultra expensive cars or own multiple real estate so this list wasn't compiled solely from what the artists purchase but also on their investments.

    3. Oniontaker obviously doesn't know much about JYJ's investments (land, hotel, restaurants, ice cream, coffee and cosmetics shops, jewelry, fashion and leather goods brands) outside of their cars and house purchases. Similarly, Oniontaker doesn't know what other idols who are not on this list actually invest in. He alludes that they're smart and made smart investments with their money but he doesn't say what they did. So how does he know? I want receipts. If not, he should stop talking out of his ass.

    ReplyDelete
  167. No I wasn't, If it seems that way to you sorry. I was just explaining why knetizens made that comment.

    ReplyDelete
  168. but you forget jyj debuted as jyj under avex first. obviously, they didn't have issues with avex's contract then nor all the other years they were under avex. and everyone knows all the money is made in japan anyways, where tvxq have been active in nonstop since their comeback while jyj only making money in korea.


    but, tbh, i doubt yunho and changmin care so much about money like some people. they seem happy to be where they are, doing what they enjoy with people they love and being respected by their fans.


    and since jyj are showcased in every article about materialistic possesions, i guess jyj fans can now stop denying they sued for money. lol

    ReplyDelete
  169. do you get paid a lot to be on magazine covers? i thought that's mostly like promotion for them or the group. just asking

    ReplyDelete
  170. I think Oniontaker's point is that just because you see flashy shiny things doesn't mean there's substance underneath. Just because some idol drives a 1/2 million dollar car doesn't mean he is rich. It can be all just "smoke and mirrors". Fans nor reporters have all the idols' bank account information, stock portfolio or even their credit card bills. They are just guessing with what was made known public.

    And apparently, Oniontaker does have contact with some of these very idols, which is more than we can say for the reporters of this article or you or me so yeah, he does have more credibility.

    ReplyDelete
  171. Stock is for long term, not a get rich quick scheme. Unless you have a crystal ball in front of you, you don't know how it will do later. BoA is smart enough to know to leave it until it goes back up again.

    ReplyDelete
  172. I don't see the reason to have downvotes on you guys' conversation. These are extremely sensitive fans who just love to vote down on people for very childish reasons. Get used to it already. Please, don't mind it.

  173. Japanese yen >>>>Korean won

    yay Hara Goo!

    ReplyDelete
  174. aah jyj stan, you can't let that pass right? you should be celebrating jyj being so rich, because all you care is about material things, just like your idol.

    Yunho is the most natural idol out there, his face has been the same since he was born and there are predebut pictures to prove it.

    Sadly you can't say the same about jaejae right? too bad it didn't help, he keeps looking like a living corpse :(

    ReplyDelete
  175. ...or maybe Yunho and Changmin are the same people they used to be, humble and worried about more important things like close friends, family, personal growth and doing what they love to do the most?

    They never were materialistic in first place, why they should change to prove something?

    To be like JYJ? always talking about money while looking or sounding bitter and miserable? No thanks.

  176. your ignorance is amusing. this is one of the reason why old kpop fans didnt sit in the same seat with kpop newbies. i just degrade myself by reply your comment.

  177. i just stating the facts, nothing wrong with that. btw dbsk is still popular

    ReplyDelete
  178. That's true..... Majority of the time, everything these idols wear are all sponsored. I mean c'mon, if Big Bang wears your brand, then everybody would suddenly want to wear it too. Same thing with snsd. I saw a shirt Tiffany was wearing and damn, I sure as hell did wanted it. Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  179. People still calling JYJ "Greedy" Just because they're making money without TVXQ Jesus Christ..

    They WORKED for that money even if you think they have dirty personalities or whatever else niqqahs gonna hate on them.

  180. Wrong... because DSP did wrong... and People starting to Criticize DSP ..even SM is worst dan ALL AGENCY ..SLAVE CONTRACT ..that's the reason why SNSD never been part of the list ..because unfair share of profit
