How much money does BIGBANG really make?

Success is nothing new to BIGBANG, but their success during 2016 was so monumental that even Forbes magazine took notice.

The business magazine’s “30 Highest Paid Celebrities Under 30” list ranked BIGBANG at #13 this year. The group has earned over $44 million USD since the beginning of 2016. Their runaway success has made BIGBANG the first Korean artists to ever earn so much in a single year!

According to the Instagram post uploaded by G-Dragon and T.O.P, the only other groups in the world that have made more money in a year are One Direction and the Backstreet Boys.

It’s an honor @forbes and thanks for everything all the VIPs in the World✨?✨
