110426 With Hundreds Of Millions Of Won For Income, Even JYJ’s Donations Are Of A Large Scale
JYJ (Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, Kim Junsu) have donned worldwide wings and are flying high.
Hitting the 520,000 mark in pre-orders for their first worldwide album ‘The Beginning’, attracting 150,000 people to their successful showcases in Asia and America, becoming goodwill ambassadors for ‘FLL KOREA’ and ‘World-OKTA’, winning the Newcomer of the Year Award at the 2010 KBS Acting Awards as well as the Best Male Newcomer Award at the 16th Korean Musical Awards and the Best Supporting Actor at the Nikkan Sports Drama Grand Prix. These are the accomplishments of JYJ in 2010.
Their accomplishments do not end here. With less than half of 2011 gone, JYJ extended their contracts with Lotte Duty Free, and became CF models for many famous domestic brands such as NII, Nature Republic and TiO. They are also receiving an endless stream of love calls from a variety of genres such as the musical and drama industries.
Though restrictions have been made on their televised appearances due to their legal dispute with their former agency SM Entertainment, JYJ have been boasting their power as top Hallyu stars through other various forms such as concerts and album releases.
The earnings they make are as gargantuan as the breadth and depth of their activities. According to a representative, the members of JYJ have houses over the price of 3 billion Won under their names as well as famous and expensive super cars such as Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Maseratis.
Their income, which totals up to hundreds of millions of Won, comes from the artiste-centered contract they have with their current agency. C-JeS Entertainment, who is currently in charge of JYJ, bases its income division and beliefs on respecting each individual artiste’s interests and talents as well as giving said artistes the agency’s full support in whichever genre they wish to pursue. This specific system was what gave JYJ the opporunity to pursue a variety of interests, which naturally led to high earnings.
JYJ have also become model examples to follow as they give back as much as they earn through their fans’ love. Not only have they donated a portion of their ticket earnings to an international humanitarian organization for every performance,but they have even donated 600 million Won to Japan to aid in the earthquake and tsunami relief.
The group is also famous for the warm-hearted generosity it’s members give to their staff. According to a representative who took part in the ‘JYJ World Tour Concert in 2011′, “They take care of the staff so well, just as if we were members of their family, that it makes me wonder if other stars act the same way. They buy us meals and drinks while we’re working and even pay for everyone when we go out for dinner as a group.”
They have branched out from their original career as singers and morphed into actors, musical actors and directors. JYJ boast ‘world class’ generosity, heart, earnings and efforts to do their best in whatever they are given. Through a world tour that encompasses Thailand, Taiwan, China, Canada and the US, JYJ plan to solidify their position as Korea’s representative Hallyu artistes.
