[This is an excerpt from an article in Xinhuanet.com, a large news website run by the Xinhua News Agency — a state news agency of China and the largest news and information gathering and release center in the country.]
The cost effectiveness of Korean artistes is the biggest reason why China directors use them. Director Gao Xi Xi (高希希) said that China has now become the key market for Asian film and TV. Korean actors are mostly taking their own initiative to come for filming; they give good quality work and their price is reasonable. An insider source who is involved in the management of Korean celebrities told the reporter that when Korean artistes go to China, their price will be 30% to 40% higher than in Korea. Which means that, in general, a 2nd-tier artiste who gets 300,000 RMB per episode in Korea, can get about about 400,000 RMB when they go to China. And 1st-tier artistes doing TV dramas get about 500,000 RMB (T/N: approx 81,000 USD) per episode. Currently, those who can command this price are artistes like Song Hye Kyo, Park Yoo Chun and Jang Geun Suk. Once these artistes come to China for filming, they will definitely get a higher price compared to their value in Korea.
