MC: I don’t know if this is an uncomfortable think to talk about

– But are appearance fees different from Japan and Korea?

Jaejoong: There’s the production and also the money that goes into it are different

– Of course from a staff perspective, it’s different too 

MC: Is one more expensive than the other?

Jaejoong: Korea is more expensive

– Whether it’s dramas, movies, variety shows, advertisements, everything is more expensive 

MC: Even the appearance fee is higher?

Jaejoong: It’s high. It’s 9x the amount in Korea 

“Shouldn’t everyone here just quit?”

1. Our country is too expensive

2. The Republic of Celebrities ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. It comes back to the price of advertisement. This is why we need to stop consuming celebrities

4. There’s a reason why they say in Korea, celebrities are considered noblemen 

5. Rather than the staff being paid more in Korea, they’re actually being paid “right”. Because we realized that the staff actually contribute a lot to the success, so the treatment towards them improved

6. Because the quality is different 

7. Even for a top top top of the top actor in Japan will never get paid over 1M won per episode (~100K USD) 

8. But China is still a wall 

9. It’s true that Japan doesn’t pay that much 

10. In China, the salaries of celebrities have become so high that the government has regulated the appearance fees of celebrities, no matter who they are, so that they can’t exceed a certain percentage of the production cost. However, they still receive a lot of money because the number of dramas is 40 episodes and the top standard pay per episode is similar to Korea, which is hundreds of millions of won ㄷㄷ
