Rapper Dok2 Reveals Staggering Earnings And Future Goals
On the show, Dok2 says that he does not think of himself as a celebrity, but rather as a “rapstar.” He also shares his future goals and activities.
Dok2 talks about his supercar collection, which has always caused conversation. MC Yoon Jong Shin comments, “When you think Dok2, you cannot leave out cars. He recently bought two six-figure cars.” The rapper reveals that he bought himself two cars (one that starts with a B and the other a F) as a birthday present for himself. Both cars are worth more than 800 million won (approximately $702,000). Dok2 comments that he heard he was able to immediately buy cars that top actors such as Jang Dong Gun and Kang Dong Won would have to wait three years to buy.
The rapper reveals that his goal this year is to make 5 billion won (approximately $4.4 million). MC Kim Gook Jin states, “Dok2’s salary doubles every year. In 2013, he made 500 million won (approximately $438,700), in 2014 he made 1 billion won (approximately $878,000), and in 2015 he made 2 billion won (approximately $1.8 million). This year your goal is 5 billion won?” Dok2 comments, “Normally profit from songs are calculated later in the year. It is my goal to make 5 billion won by December or January.”
MC Kyuhyun adds, “The reason why Dok2 uses so much money is so he does not get lazy at making songs. He has produced 320 songs within 10 years after his debut.” Dok2 comments, “I have a lot of unofficial songs too. The 320 songs are the songs that have been released.”
