On the August 21 airing of JTBC's 'Newsroom', the broadcast's 'Fact Check' segment dealt with profit distribution of song streaming on various major music sites in Korea. 

The issue has been an ongoing debate since 2012 when Psy's "Gangnam Style", a song which earned worldwide fame that year, allegedly only earned an initial profit of 5,460,000 KRW (~ 4,800 USD) despite being streamed 27,300,000 times.

'Newsroom' then brought up a more current example - Heize's "You, Clouds, Rain", which maintained the #1 spot for streaming on music charts for the entire month of July. According to 'Newsroom', Heize's profit for remaining #1 on music sites and being streamed 6,450,000 times in July was approximately 2,700,000 KRW (~ 2,400 USD). While songs can also earn an additional profit for being downloaded on music sites, Korean music sites make it easier to simply stream music without downloading the songs.
