Park Eun Bin Reportedly to Get 300 Million Won Per Episode for Her Next K-drama Hyper Knife Setting New Record

So this is in the news but also has been denied swiftly so take it for what it’s worth. K-ent reported today that award winning top young actress Park Eun Bin is in talks for her next drama Hyper Knife and the more interesting thing is that her salary will be a whopping 300 million won per episode. That’s about $225K USD and is also a new record for K-actresses as the former top was 200 million won per episode going to the likes of Jeon Ji Hyun, Song Hye Kyo, et. al. Her agency has confirmed she is considering the drama but says the salary reports are false. The production team chimed in that talks are ongoing and hasn’t even gotten to the salary stage yet. I wouldn’t be surprised if that number was floated IMO but while I am happy for her if she gets the highest actress salary ever for a K-drama it’s just bad to keep inflation going so high.
