Jonghyun revealed that he is the only SHINee member who takes care of his own money.
Jonghyun, who is currently sweeping various music charts with his first solo album, appeared on KBS 2TV’s quiz show “1 vs. 100.” During his appearance on the show, he shared, “I’m the only SHINee member who takes care of my own accounts.” Many Korean celebrities have their parents take care of their money.
He explained his reasoning for taking care of his own money, stating, “I heard that it’s good to start to take care of your own money from your 20s. Others take care of the taxes, but I take care of the rest myself.”
Jonghyun continued to reveal his thoughts on finances by stating, “It’s hard to steadily make money as a singer. I’m currently making songs. I think if I continuously make songs, it’ll be helpful as I plan for retirement.”
This episode of “1 vs. 100” will air on February 3.
