The famous Hallyu star Bae Yong Joon was found to have earned over 53 billion won (approx. 50 million dollars) during a period of five years from 2003 to 2007!
According to a report filed on June 22nd, nearly half of his five-year income – 23.8 billion won – was earned in 2005 alone, the year that KBS’s ”Winter Sonata” became a hard-hitting sensation across Asia.
The majority of his income was found to have come from royalties, product endorsements, CF deals, and his position as a part-owner of Key East Entertainment.
With this new piece of information, it’s hard to rebuke the idea that Bae Yong Joon is at the forefront of the Hallyu Wave.
