Along with "K-Drama Giants" Jang Dong Gun, Song Joong Ki, Jun Ji Hyun, Lee Minho, Kim Soo Hyun, and many more, BTS RM is the only K-pop idol in the list of stars with houses in the Top 1%.
In the broadcast, TMI News reveals how rich BTS RM is, who purchased his new apartment unit by paying in full cash!
In June, it was revealed that the BTS leader purchased a 293.9 square meters real estate property. It was then revealed that RM purchased a unit in Nine One Hannam Complex, the neighborhood known as "Beverly Hills of Korea."
According to media reports, he paid the unit in cash without loans, which cost a staggering 6.36 billion won!
Prior to this, he also bought an apartment in the popular Hannam The Hill complex for about 4.9 billion won in 2019. A year after, he sold the house for 5.8 billion won, gaining a market return of 900 million won.

Traditionally, the Hannam neighborhood is filled with families of large corporate CEOs, politicians, top sports stars, and celebrities. Some of the well-known stars living in Hannam are BIGBANG G-Dragon, Lee Jong Suk, and more.
