A Chinese media analyzed the reason for many Korean stars in Chinese dramas for their cheap guarantee.
According to a recent report by Beijing Cheonbao, a local newspaper, Korean stars have taken over the star role in 10 Chinese dramas in the last 2 years.
This newspaper claims, "Their guarantee is cheaper than that of Chinese stars". Apparently a Chinese actor or actress charges roughly 130 million won an episode while Koreans charge 60 million.
It is a small number compared to the Chinese but it is still 30% more than Korean dramas.
Yoon Si-yoon in the drama "Happy Noodle" is only class B of the local actors.
Along with this fact, the conditions of working with a Korean are not as difficult as some Chinese stars and therefore preferred by the locals. "While Koreans only ask for flight, wardrobe, a make-up team and a 5-star hotel, Chinese actors or actresses ask for their own van, a manager and ten or so more people to tag along with them" says the newspaper
