According to a representative, the members of JYJ own villas worth over 3 billion KRW ($2.7 million USD), as well as exotic sports cars such as Lamborghinis, Ferraris, and Maseratis. However, despite their high earnings, they have also tithed a large proportion to charity organizations.
JYJ’s high income comes from pursuing their own interests based on their artist-centered contract they have with their current agency. C-JeS Entertainment bases its income division and beliefs on respecting each individual artist’s interests and talents as well as giving artists the agency’s full support in whichever genre they wish to pursue. This specific system allowed JYJ the opportunity to pursue a variety of interests, such as acting and musicals, and 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 from every performance to an international humanitarian organization, but they have also donated 600 million KRW ($600,000 USD) to Japan to aid in the earthquake and tsunami relief.
The group is also famous for the warm-hearted generosity its 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 careers as singers and morphed into actors, musical actors, and performance directors. JYJ boasts ‘world class’ generosity, heart, earnings, and efforts to do their best in whatever they are tasked with. Through a world tour that encompasses Thailand, Taiwan, China, Canada, and the US, JYJ plan to solidify their position as Korea’s representative Hallyu artists.
With just days away from their Vancouver concert stop, are you excited for them to tour in Canada and the States?
