[News] DBSK/THSK/TVXQ top earner ,tvN ENEWS 'Blackbox', Celebrities' Annual Earnings Ranking

[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 dispite 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.

Nichkhun and Yoon Eun Hye grind it up

Yoon Eun Hye and Nichkhun get down in a club. Why? For the newest Cass CF, the same brand Sandara Park filmed with Lee Min Ho.

The two grind it up on the dance floor and prove they are one good looking couple. And judging from the still shots, it seems like there's going to be some interesting drama in this one, just like there was for Dara and Lee Min Ho.

The Cass CF music video featuring Dara and Lee Min Ho gained a lot of love and attention - we're sure this one will as well.

Yoon Eun Hye is sporting a sexy low cut club dress and Nichkhun is wearing some kind of sparkly jacket, which Yoon Eun Hye should've been rocking instead.

Check back soon, the music video will be released in early Jan 2010.

Inkigayo: The Magazine?

That's right, the Take 7 of Inkigayo is now also a magazine. SBS Contents Hub's president Lee Nam Ki announced that they are creating the country's first music program magazine called SBS Inkigayo Magazine Take 7"... creative, right? SBS wants to take a step beyond the performances aired on TV, so this magazine will include interviews, pictures and much more.

The first issue will feature special pages about artists that have been active from the first week of December to the third week, including 2PM, SHINee, CL & Minzy, BEAST, f(x), MBLAQ, and Rainbow. They will make up around 80 pages and definitely will be a hit to young people.

An associate of SBS Contents Hub said, "This magazine represents the mainstream music features on Inkigayo. It's a new thing we're doing and everyone should keep an eye on it. We will have all kinds of music program information as well as concert news, behind-the-scenes features on music videos and more. We are aiming to become Korea's #1 music magazine."

The first issue of the magazine will be up for grabs for those attending 2009 SBS Gayo Daejun for free. For those who are not in attendance, they will start hitting the stores in January and will come out with a new issue every 28 days.

Doesn't sound so bad. I wouldn't mind a subscription to this magazine.
