How much is SeungGi the actor worth?

This was reported in a news article, but it’s probably better to still take it with a grain of salt. :P

During ‘Famous Princesses’, Lee Seung Gi received about 1 million won per episode, similar to the other new actors. But his pay skyrocketed after that.

For Brilliant Legacy in 2009, he received about 10 million won per episode. When its viewership rating exceeded 40% demonstrating the Lee Seung Gi effect, he received praise that he was well worth an even higher pay.

He then filmed My Girlfriend is a Gumiho with Shin Min Ah. Even though it was only his 3rd drama, he was paid at the special A-list level (over 20 million won per episode).

Currently, he’s considered to be well worth even 50 million won per episode. If he advances into movies, he could be paid 300 – 500 million won.

Cha Seung Won “Lee Seung Gi, really well-mannered friend”

This is just a short excerpt from CSW’s interview:

“I’ve met with SeungGi a few times before the filming. (From what I see,) SeungGi is really a well-mannered friend, and he seems to have a lot of ambition in acting as well.”

SBS is going to broadcast Teacher SunHee’s concert that was held on 5/22. Hopefully they won’t edit out SeungGi’s guest performance. :P
