2011/02/06 | Permalink | Source

Entertainers, including TV and film actors, singers and models, are found to fall behind office workers in average income, according to the National Tax Service.

TV and film actors outpowered singers and models in income among entertainers.

The annual income of TV and movie actors (11,972 people) averaged 33 million won, followed by singers (3,617 people) with 25 million won and models (6,228) with 10 million won.

연예인 평균수입 직장인에 뒤졌다

탤런트배우가수모델 등 연예인의 평균 수입이 직장인에 뒤진 것으로 5일 파악됐다. 국세청에 따르면 지난 2009년 연예인을 직업으로 삼고 있는 2만1817명이 부가가치세 면세사업자 사업장 신고현황을 통해 신고한 수입금액은 총 5453억8800만원으로 한해동안 1인당 평균 2499만원의 수입을 올린 것으로 나타났다.

연예인 중에서도 탤런트배우 등이 여전히 가수나 모델보다는 사정이 크게 나은 것으로 나타났다. 국세청에 따르면 2009년 탤런트배우 등(1만1972명)의 평균 수입은 3300만원으로 일반 직장인 평균 연봉을 웃돌았고 가수(3617명)는 2500만원으로 비슷한 수준이었으나 모델(6228명)은 1000만원밖에 되지 않아 직장인에 크게 못미쳤다.

2008년 연예인의 평균 수입 2851만원(신고인원 2만1619명, 수입신고총액 6163억8300만원)보다 352만원, 12.3% 줄어든 것이다. 반면 2009년 직장인(1429만5000명)의 평균 연봉은 전년의 2510만원보다 약간 늘었난 2530만원으로 집계됐다.

하지만 가수나 모델에 비해 상대적으로 처우가 괜찮았던 탤런트배우 등이 더 세찬 '금융위기 후폭풍'을 맞았던 것으로 분석됐다. 가수의 경우 평균 수입이 2008년(2600만원)에 비해 3.8% 줄어들고 모델(1100만원)도 9% 감소했으나 탤런트배우 등의 평균수입은 2008년(3800만원)에 비해 13.2%나 줄어들었기 때문이다.
