What comes to your mind when you are asked, "What are the biggest industries of in the world?", a lot of diverse answers will come up.

Among those diverse answers, I'm sure there aren't many that say "Entertainment Industry." Entertainment Industry has been one of the fields that don't seem to show a downfall. It's always an issue, it's always buzzing with news no matter what. However, we can't really assume how much they have been earning, and how much especially these days when the industry is hotter than any other fields. 

K-Pop fans may wonder about the three enterprises that basically rule over the whole K-Pop field. SM, YG, and JYP. The three companies endlessly produce new groups and throw them into the field where groups made ahead of them have built and are ruling over.

Just hear these groups out. EXO, SNSD, Super Junior, and SHINee. Big Bang, CL, BLACK PINK, and WINNER. TWICE, 2 PM, Suzy and GO7. They are some of the huge groups that are all from the entertainments.   

Now, can you be guessing how much they earn? This is based on the sales of the first half year of 2017.

I don't think we can equate SM or YG Ent. sales to their idol group activities. Both companies have diversified to film production, sport & model talent, training academies, fashion labels, F&B, etc. (Only JYP Ent. has pretty much stayed within the music industry). It will be interesting to see the future impact of all these new ventures.
