Which Celebrity Made the Most Money from Copyright Fees?


Big Bang’s G Dragon, Beast’s Yong Jun Hyung, and songwriter Jo Young Soo are making lots of money from copyright fees?

Previously, Yong Jun Hyung revealed that he makes so much that it’s hard for him to handle. G Dragon is also popularly known to write and compose songs. There are even rumors that G Dragon drives around in a Bentley Continental GT while Yong Jun Hyung drives an M5.

Both are set to appear at the first ever “Korean Music Copyright Awards” next week on December 4, at 7 P.M. in the Olympic hall grand music performance hall. Unlike an awards show for singers, this one is focused on the song writers.

Korea’s biggest music copyright company, “Korea Music Copyright Organization (President Shin Sang Ho and Eum Juh Hyup)” has been taking data not only from broadcasts from television, but also online charts, karaoke rooms, store-bought albums, and etc to organize data for revenue generated by copyright fees.

There will be of course, ballad, dance, rock, hip hop, OST, and traditional Korean music such as traditional instrumental music and children’s songs. It will take into account the most revenue generated in the past year.

In the coming awards ceremony, there will be singers and performers such as G-Dragon, Beast’s Jun Hyung, SHINee, Jung Yup, Cho Shin Sung, Psy, Sul Oon Do, Lee Seung Hwan, Homme, DJ DOC, Park Sang Chul, Baek Ji Young. Famous producers will include Jo Young Soo and Bang Shi Hyuk

The greatest award goes to the writer who has made the most money made from copyrights. There will also be many other types of awards given out, such as the special award, the Hallyu music award the rookie award, the singer-songwriter award, the song editing award, and more.

Eum Juh Hyup said, “We are objectively generating data to select the recipients, and the Awards show will be equal and unbiased in any way. Feel free to look forward to it!”

Who do you think will be grabbing some of those awards? (Personally, I want CN BLUE’s Jung Yonghwa and Lee Jonghyun to win some awards!)
