Top South Korean star Kim Soo-hyun has confirmed that he will appear in a new TV series on the channel tvN, called "Psycho but It’s Okay", which is scheduled to be broadcast in the first half of this year. According to media reports, the actor will be receiving over 200 million KRW ($167,000) per episode. If additional revenue from advertising, such as copyright sales and PPL are added, he will receive even more than 200 million KRW. Kim Soo-hyun could then break the previous record by Lee Byung-hun who received 150 million KRW ($126,000) per episode for the hit 2018 TV series, "Mr Sunshine".
After he was discharged from the military in 2019, Kim Soo-hyun starred in cameo roles in the dramas "Hotel DeLuna" and "Crash Landing on You". Even such short appearances by the actor sent fans into meltdown, proving his A-list star status.
