On a recent broadcast of Mnet’s ‘Beatles Code,’ Big Bang’s maknae Seungri revealed G-Dragon’s income from royalties.
In this episode, Seungri–along with Daesung–made an appearance on the show and said, “G-Dragon hyung is currently considered #1 in the Copyright Association… He’s even higher than composer Cho Young Soo.”
According to Seungri, G-Dragon’s income from royalties is higher than the income professional composers get from copyrights. He stated, “G-Dragon has 120 registered tracks under his name. These tracks were not meant to be solely Big Bang’s, but also for his solo album, Taeyang, Seungri, 2NE1, and Uhm Jung Hwa. He’s composed and participated in countless songs.”
In response, MC Yoon Jong Shin commented, “Do you know how much G-Dragon gets paid through royalties?”
Seungri answered, “Because I’ve always had an interest in market researching, I do know his income through royalties,” shocking even Daesung.
Meanwhile, Seungri revealed that he had an interest in education, culture, and business. He even went on to say, “I am operating an academy. It is currently located in my hometown of Gwangju. There is one that opened in Daejeon this year and I’m preparing to open another one in Incheon.”
