Pann: Income divisions of SM-YG-JYP

1. [+86, -18] God YG

2. [+64, -7] JYP changed it to Company (30) and Artist (70)

3. [+61, -10] Groups with overseas promotions like TVXQ, SNSD, and Super Junior must be daebak ㅋㅋ EXO seems to have started overseas promotions recently. I guess SM isn't satisfied with domestic promotions and is trying to expend their international popularity. Still, 9:1 is too much.

4. [+31, -1] YG's individual earnings are no joke ㅋㅋㅋㅋ They also produce their own songs so their royalty is amazing ㅋㅋ Just look at TOP and GD's houses, they're extremely rich.

5. [+28, -3] Wow fuck, I can't believe YG. They're literally giving it all to their artists. If I'm guaranteed to succeed as an artist, I'll go to YG for sure. Their income division is just amazing ㅋㅋ

6. [+25, -5] SM is honestly shameless

7. [+24, -0] JYP is the fairest one

8. [+23, -0] Trusted company = JYP
