A recent episode of Mnet’s TMI News revealed just how much BIGBANG‘s G-Dragon makes in royalties thanks to his very successful career in music.
The show revealed a list of stars who make the most money in royalties, and in 1st place was none other than our king, G-Dragon.
The first song that G-Dragon ever composed and produced was BIGBANG’s hit song, “LIES”.
He started composing music ever since he was 13 years old, and he’s so talented that even producer Bang Shi Hyuk of BigHit Entertainment remarked, “Even I feel jealous.”
Following his first big hit as a composer and producer, he went on to compose and produce many other songs such as “HARU HARU”, “FANTASTIC BABY”, “HEART BREAKER” and more.
As such, G-Dragon currently has 173 songs under his name, which reportedly reels in around 1.4 billion won (~$1.2 million US) a year.
In other words, G-Dragon doesn’t work anymore if he doesn’t want to!
But then again, what would the world do without his amazing music?
