On the evening of the 25th, MeloMance‘s Kim Min-seok appeared as a guest on the MBC entertainment program “Master in the House” and revealed his monthly allowance.
Kim Min-seok, a chart-topping artist, appeared on the set and sang his hit songs “Love is Gone” and “Gift,” captivating the panelists with his sweet voice.
After listening to the live performance, panelist Yang Se-hyung asked, “I heard that ‘Love is Gone’ has surpassed 100 million streams recently. It’s even a self-composed song, so the copyright fee must be significant.”
To this, Kim Min-seok replied, “My parents manage my income. I receive an allowance of around 5 million won (approximately $4,400 USD) per month.“
When asked about his copyright fees, Kim Min-seok shocked everyone by revealing, “At the time when the copyright fees didn’t come in much, I received three times my monthly allowance, around 15 million won (approximately $13,200 USD).”
