How much does 2AM receive for lunch money?


2AM revealed that after becoming more popular, their lunch money went up as well.

2AM’s Jo Kwon and Jinwoon were guests on the most recent episode of Happy Together 3. They were asked what things changed after becoming popular. Jo Kwon said that their lunch money went from 5000 WON to 10000 WON. For those of you guys who don’t know the Korean WON very well, that is a very low amount. If it wasn’t for the bad economy right now, that would translate to about going from $5 to $10. With the economy and currency system that we have now, it goes from $4.50 to $9.


I think I know of high school kids who get more lunch money than that. That is a bit ridiculous to me.

Jinwoon added, “Our cars became bigger and nicer.”

After Jo Kwon revealed this fact, Kim C, a fellow guest, couldn’t hide his shock at the low amount. He said, “After hearing Jo Kwon, I realized I’m very fortunate. I go to buffets for lunch. I can’t accept having a limit on what I eat. I’ve never ate just kimbap (Korean sushi) or bought a lunch for under 5000 WON.”

I guess Kim C is quite the superstar, huh?
