[TRANS] 091231 tvN ENEWS 'Blackbox', Celebrities' Annual Earnings Ranking Revealed

TVXQ, who is currently in a dispute with their agency, caught the attention of many by having the highest annual earnings this year despite the unfavorable conditions they are currently in.

tvN ENEWS' 'blackbox' corner that was aired on the 20th ranked the celebrities with the top ten annual earnings this year.

The celebrity with the highest earnings was TVXQ, followed by Rain, Big Bang, Super Junior, Kim Hyun Joon, Go Hyun Jung, Girls' Generation, Lee Byung Hun, Yoo Jae Seok and Kang Ho Dong.

It was found that TVXQ earned at least 126.4 billion Won (equivalent to approximately 109 million USD) this year when their 90 billion Won earnings from Japanese album sales are taken into account.

However, this news is overshadowed by the fact that TVXQ is currently fighting a legal dispute with their agency SM Entertainment over an 'unfair contract' and have even been driven to the brink of a disbandment.

Newsway announcer/reporter Jung Soo Ryang stated, "TVXQ was able to reap such earning regardless of the fact that they are in such unfavorable conditions with the legal dispute," and "If their had been no legal dispute, they would have earned much more than this amount."

She also added, "If TVXQ, who has evolved from just a domestic star to a Hallyu star of Asia, cannot overcome these unfortunate conditions and disband, not only will this be a huge loss to our country's entertainment industry, it will also be a loss at a nationwide scale," and "I hope to see TVXQ come to a reasonable agreement with their agency and return to the stage in good spirits."

ENEWS' 'Blackbox' airs every Wednesday and brings experts of many fields to the panel to discuss controversial events of the entertainment industry.

Some people are reading this wrongly. The journalist is saying that it would be a national loss if TVXQ disbands.
Let's not be oversensitive here. She wasn't insinuating anything ==;;
