Being a member of BTS, one of the most famous K-pop bands, has its advantages. And Jungkook knows it very well.
Jeon Jungkook is a name that literally needs no introduction and currently if one has to take the name of a musician who is unconditionally loved by billions around the world, that is Jungkook.
Jungkook has played a huge role in helping BTS earn the name and fame that it has earned over the years and naturally, if you are gaining millions of followers due to your work, you must also be earning millions in terms of monetary value.
How exactly does Jungkook spend his money?
Well, according to reports from the South China Morning Post, Jungkook previously bought a flat in Seoul’s Trimage Forest, which is one of the most luxurious and amazing apartment complexes in Seoul.
Forbes ranked the group 43rd on its 2019 Celebrity 100 list of the world’s highest-paid artists, with $ 57 million in pre-tax income last year (although surely in 2020 that fortune has already increased).
Most of the proceeds came from her “Love Yourself: Speak Yourself” world tour, which grossed $ 44 million from just six US stadium shows. And that’s only part of her fortune.
BTS made their fortune through album sales, concerts, merchandise, and brand deals. They have also secured sponsorship deals and partnerships with brands such as Coca-Cola and Hyundai.
BTS are worth more than $ 3.6 billion a year to the South Korean economy. They increased the popularity of the country, contributing to an increase in tourism. Its popularity also increased the appeal of South Korean products, such as clothing, cosmetics and food.
Jungkook also spends thousands of dollars on clothing and footwear from the world’s most luxurious brands, however, the idol can afford that luxury for being one of the group’s highest-earning idols. Do you think Kookie should invest her money in some other business? Do you think the idol could earn much more by the end of this year?
