Actor Jang Dong-gun has earned almost seven million dollars this year.

His agent StarM Ent on Friday said in a regulatory filing that it paid Jang 6.79 billion won in income through the end of October.

Best known for his roles in the blockbuster films "Taegukgi: The Brotherhood of War" and Friend, the actor earned most of his money from endorsements, including 670 million won from steelmaker POSCO and 610 million won from Samsung Card.

StarM Ent made the filing after getting listed on the domestic KOSDAQ bourse.

Leading actress Ha Ji-won over the last three years was paid 6.7 billion won by her agent Well-Made Entertainment.

Park Eun-hye, the star of the hit TV historical drama "Jewel in the Palace" - "Dae Jang Geum", has earned 1.6 billion won since 2002.
