Jeon Ji Hyun Only Solo Female Star to Make Top South Korean Entertainer Earnings List of 2022 Behind Lim Young Woong and BTS

The 2022 is more than half over but some things don’t change. I feel like the folks on the top 10 lists in South Korea rarely change and this new aggregation of the top earners for 2022 so far is a collection of the same names. Making the list as the only solo female star is Jeon Ji Hyun at an impressive third spot, with number 1 going to trot singer Lim Young Woong and y’all have to tell me why he’s THAT popular. If it’s because of the old people then they certainly have spending power lol. Second place goes to BTS as that group just mints month. From there on its buff ahjusshi Ma Dong Seok, Lee Byung Hun still going strong, Yoo Jae Suk, NCT Dream, TWICE, Seventeen, and Stray Kids.
