It’s not just the property market in Singapore that’s heating up—Korean celebrities have also been making headlines with their real estate purchases in South Korea. Here, we reveal some of the Korean A-listers with impressive property portfolios.
Editor's note: This list is not exhaustive and the figures are taken from publicly available information on the estimated prices that were converted from Korean won.
1. Rain and Kim Tae Hee
This celebrity power couple often tops the charts when it comes to Korean stars with high-net-worths for a good reason. Proving that two heads are better than one, the couple reportedly owns approximately US$72 million in real estate investments.
Besides their shared US$4.4 million home in Itaewon, Hannam-dong, Kim Tae-Hee is also the owner of three buildings in Gangnam that have an estimated value of US$12 million altogether, while Rain owns a US$5.3 million private luxury villa and a six-storey shopping centre in Cheongdam-dong that skyrocketed in value and earned him US$26 million in profits after he renovated it in 2017.
The husband-and-wife duo made headlines last year when they decided to cut their rental fees by half during the pandemic in order to aid their tenants.
