Singer Jang Woo-hyuk turned out to be a wealthy man with 20 billion won in assets.
KBS2’s entertainment show “Yeonjung Live,” which aired on the 2nd, revealed the ranking of “stars who became rich by saving.”
Jang Woo-hyuk of H.O.T., the top popular group in the 1990s, was selected as the second place in the “Star Who Got Rich by Saving.”
Jang Woo-hyuk, known as a famous stingy person since H.O.T., appeared on an entertainment program in 2013 and said, “I had a hard time due to the bankruptcy of my father’s business as a child. The remaining money had also been distributed to the employees. I didn’t have enough money to survive.
Jang Woo-hyuk said, “Even if it’s hard, I’ll have to collect it now,” adding, “I’ve been struggling to save money by even writing down household accounts.” His dream was to be a building owner.
According to “Yeonjung,” Jang Woo-hyuk, who started the Gosiwon project in front of Seoul National University, purchased a shabby building, studied construction, and constructed the building himself to save labor costs. While continuing to study architecture and real estate, he finally achieved his dream of becoming a building owner.
Jang Woo-hyuk, who has been cherishing and continuing his life as a “cheap-dol,” has become a building owner with a total of three buildings, one in Sinsa-dong, Cheongdam-dong, and Mangwon-dong. Real estate investment returns were also significant.
The Sinsa-dong building, which he purchased in 2003 for about 2.3 billion won, currently amounts to about 7.6 billion won. The Cheongdam-dong building, which was purchased for about 6.1 billion won in 2015, currently has a sale price of 10 billion won. The Mangwon-dong building, which runs its own cafe after obtaining a barista license, is estimated to be worth about 1.7 billion won
