BLACKPINK’s Jisoo, alongside fellow actors Jung Hae In and Yoo In Na, captivated viewers with their performances in the action-packed romantic K-drama “Snowdrop.” While Jisoo earned acclaim for her role, details regarding her earnings per episode remained a mystery until now. Let’s delve into the revealed figures:
As reported by NME, it has been disclosed that Jisoo’s earnings for her portrayal in “Snowdrop” amounted to a substantial $80,000 per episode. With the series encompassing 16 episodes, this translates to a potentially significant sum of $1,280,000 upon the successful completion of her participation in the drama.

Comparison with Peers
When compared to leading figures in the Korean entertainment industry, such as Song Hye Kyo and Jeon Ji Hyun, Jisoo’s per-episode salary, while notably commendable, falls short. Reports earlier in the year suggested that Song Hye Kyo and Jeon Ji Hyun were purportedly earning approximately 200 million KRW per episode, which is equivalent to $162,595 USD. Jisoo’s earnings, while perhaps half of what her more experienced peers receive, remain an aspirational figure for many idols and actors in the industry.
Jisoo’s Recent Engagements
Beyond her role in “Snowdrop,” Jisoo has been actively engaged in various projects and appearances. After the conclusion of BLACKPINK’s World Tour, she represented the luxury brand DIOR as a global ambassador during Paris Fashion Week 2024.
Jisoo has also been confirmed for a leading role in the upcoming Influenza series, co-starring with Park Jeong Min. Her cameo in the movies “Dr. Cheon” and “Lost Talisman” garnered widespread acclaim. Additionally, she is set to appear in the live-action webtoon adaptation “Omniscient Reader” alongside Lee Min Ho.
While Jisoo’s professional commitments have been keeping her busy, it was reported that she recently ended her romantic relationship with actor Ahn Bo Hyun. The decision was attributed to their demanding schedules, but the two maintain a cordial and professional relationship. Their dating news was initially confirmed in August.
