Lee Jung-jin tops annual list of highest-paid actors

In 2019 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (July 29) that Lee is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between June 2020 and June 2021, a nearly $50 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The Korean actor has an estimated net worth of $245 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Lee Burger” chain) in Seoul, a Football Team (the “Seoul Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderlee - South Korea), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Jung-jin) and a fashion line called “Lee Jung-jin Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Jung-jin fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
