Once again, the news that 2 BTS members bought a luxury apartment with cash in just one payment is making кσяєαn netizens admire.
When they have become famous stars and have stable finances, it is no longer strange for Kpop idols like BTS to spend money to buy luxury apartments for the purpose of living or doing real estate business. However, every time the members buy a new apartment, this news still becomes a hot topic for Knet: The reason is that they usually pay all at once with only cash, and the apartments are extremely expensive.
Nine One Hannam complex in Seoul
Most recently, RM and Jimin (BTS) became the owners of private apartments in Nine One Hannam. This is one of the most expensive real estate areas in South кσяєα. Let’s take a look at the model apartment to see why Knet must also admire their “young and rich” level.
In June 1, кσяєαn media reported that 2 members of BTS, RM and Jimin, recently became the owners of private apartments at the prestigious Nine One Hannam complex. Since the purchase and sale of the property to anyone, celebrity or not, is often made public online on registration sites in кσяєα, news of these transactions also spreads widely.
According to media reports, RM made the purchase of the apartment on March 31, 2021, for 6,300,600,000 KRW (about 5.69 million USD). In particular, the leader of BTS has paid all in cash once and has no debt. It is known that RM’s apartment has a total area of about 293.93 square meters, including utility areas and about 244.34 square meters of the living room and bathroom area.
On the other hand, Jimin bought another apartment with the same area as RM in square meters. The male idol also made the transaction on March 31, 2021. Jimin’s apartment is worth about 5,900,000,000 KRW (about 5.3 million USD). Jimin also paid for this in full in cash in one go and didn’t need a loan.
Given the similar area, some might wonder why there is a price difference between Jimin’s and RM’s apartments. According to a real estate expert, this may be because RM’s apartment has an additional terrace. RM’s apartment also has a better location and view than similar apartments.
Nine One Hannam is currently the most expensive real estate complex in Seoul. RM and Jimin will also be neighbors with top celebrities like G-Dragon, So Ji Sub, and Jun Ji Hyun. However, we cannot be sure that they buy for the purpose of living or trading real estate. But even so, just buying this luxury apartment with cash is enough to make Knet admire it.
Let’s take a look at some sample pictures of the apartment’s amenities (just sample apartment photos, there may be some differences with the actual apartment of RM and Jimin).
