In the entertainment industry and the United States, Japan and South Korea, where the Internet economy is developed, their “top stream” stars also have their own characteristics.
US: Singers make money more than actors
According to Forbes’ 2019 Celebrity Income List, American singer Taylor Swift is the most expensive, with annual revenues of $185 million. “Net Red” Kardashian’s “Golden Girl” Kelly Jenner followed with $170 million, and Kanye West, Ed Sheerland and other singers also earned more than $100 million a year. In contrast, the Hollywood movie star’s value market is somewhat backward this year: the highest “boulder” Johnson’s annual income of 89.4 million US dollars ranked 15th, “Iron Man” Robert Downey Jr. income of 66 million US dollars. The most expensive actress is “Black Widow” Scarlett Johansson, but the annual income of $56 million is still far less than Swift and Jenna.
Hollywood actor income mainly comes from pay, box office, advertising and image endorsement. The rewards like Downey’s “The Avengers 4” include two parts – a fixed pay of $20 million + a global box office share of 8%, “Raytheon” Chris Hemsworth, “Beauty Team” Chris Evans can get a split of different proportions, which is more worthwhile than traditional pay.
In the European and American music scene, the income of top singers or bands mainly comes from record sales, concert ticket income and so on. Although the global physical record industry continues to shrink, the rise of online streaming media has opened up “gold mines” for singers. Spotify, Applemusic and other platforms to broadcast singles have to pay the singers and their affiliates related copyright fees. For example, Swift has sold 50 million albums worldwide. When she switched to Universal Music at the end of last year, she guessed that her contract totaled more than $100 million. She also owns mastering rights and can share Spotify shares.
Kelly Jenna shows the huge absorbing ability of “Net Red”: a million dollars can be earned by only one advertisement on social media, and the value of a homemade make-up brand is even more than 900 million US dollars… 22 years old “Jin Xiaomei” has already entered the ranks of successful entrepreneurs and was named “the youngest billionaire” by Forbes.
Japan: Music producer at the top
In Japanese society, although the income of first-line artists in the entertainment industry is much higher than that of ordinary company employees, it is not enough to rank at the top of the “Celebrity Income Ranking”.

Japanese stars rely mainly on shooting advertisements to generate revenue. The female artist with the highest income in the “list” is holding at least 10 big-name endorsements. The income of idols is relatively small. For example, the ordinary members of AKB48 can only receive wages on a monthly basis. Only after achieving certain results can they rely on acting, hosting and other work to earn extra money.
South Korea: Top-level online red cross-border “with goods”
The Korean star who is ranked in the top ranks is not the one that has a high reputation in every section. The Korean financial website “MoneyToday” has made a star price list in June this year.

According to a Korean live broadcast platform, 20% to 30% of BJ’s income is similar to that of ordinary Korean office workers.
