Lee Hyori spoke candidly about where most of her income comes from — and it isn’t her music.
On the July 6 broadcast of KBS2’s “Happy Together,” Lee Hyori appeared as a guest.
During the show, she gave an honest reflection of herself as an artist. She said, “Once I said that I wouldn’t do commercials or perform at events anymore unless they were important, there was no way for me to earn any money. Even when I released an album, the income from that wasn’t as much as I thought it might be.”
She said, “Once I realized that I don’t earn any profit by selling albums, I also realized that I had been earning money not as a singer, but with activities outside of that.”
