KBS‘s “Entertainment Weekly” has named Super Junior‘s Yesung the K-pop star who is the most skilled at investing in real estate.
Yesung does not have the most money invested in real estate, but by selling it at an opportune time he was able to make the highest profit. Other stars on the list included Super Junior’s Kyuhyun, who owns a building worth 7.3 billion won (6.7 million USD), and KARA‘s Seungyeon, who owns one with a value of 4.9 billion won (4.5 million USD). However, note that these numbers don’t mean they’ve made money off the properties.
In comparison, Yesung has done very well with his recent real estate investment. He bought a building four years ago for 750 million won (686,000 USD). When he sold it recently, he made a profit of 880 million won (804,000 USD)!
The real estate consultant on “Entertainment Weekly” therefore named him the most savvy real estate investor of all K-pop stars.
Yesung has been serving in the army as a public service officer since May 2013, and it’s expected that he will be discharged this May.
