At 35 years old, Jay Chou’s (周杰倫) career is certainly not slowing down. Pocketing 618 million NTD in revenue from his nine endorsements, five mall promotions, and 21 shows from his concert, Jay is the top earner among Taiwanese singers in 2014.

Although Jay was seen going on vacation with girlfriend Hannah Quinlivan  (昆凌) several times this year, and was speculated to be busy preparing for the couple’s wedding, he still commands high fees for his appearances. Jay earned 6.25 million NTD from just partaking in a magic programme.

Coming in a close second is Taiwan’s superstar diva, Jolin Tsai (蔡依林) who reaped roughly 578 million NTD in 2014. If Jolin held a concert this year, her income would surely surpass Jay.

Very close behind Jolin is Show Luo (羅志祥) with 560 million NTD. A large chunk of Show’s income was from his endorsements which helped him earn 399 million NTD.

Leehom Wang’s (王力宏) daughter was born in July. Not only did the singer’s daughter bring the family happiness and joy, but she brought along a lot of luck. Placing fourth on this year’s top earners chart, Leehom earned a healthy 435 million NTD.

Nabbing the fifth spot on the chart is Taiwan’s favorite girl group, S.H.E with 398 million NTD in total income. The rest of the top 10 include: Jam Hsiao (蕭敬騰) with 379 million NTD; Mayday (五月天) with 375 million NTD; Elva Hsiao (蕭亞軒) with 363 million NTD; JJ Lin (林俊傑) with 246 million NTD; and Rainie Yang (楊丞琳) with 183 million NTD.

    That’s a lot of money. I hope that does not include salaries for behind the scene staffs. If jay and Jolin did not break up, they would have been a superpower couple

        Yes. I actually really liked that couple even though I’m not such a fan of jolin anymore.

        This is irrelevant but have You heard about Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan and Jay Chou going to be in a film together?

    Jay is top earner, thanks to his Christian faith. Just take a look at Max Chang. Won Best Actor after became a Christian

      What does being Christian have to do with making money? They earn a lot due to their hard work,luck, and other factors. I am sure being Christian or any faith had anything to do with it.
