Blackpink's Lisa, 25, Pays For New S$8mil House In Cash
Just how rich are the members of K-pop group Blackpink?
Remember how it was reported that Jisoo, 28, made S$27mil on Instagram in 2021, making her the "Highest-Earning Asian Celebrity" on the platform?
Today (Feb 2), reports claim that Lisa, 25, paid for her new $7.5bil won (S$8mil) home in Seongbuk-Dong — an affluent district in the north of Seoul — in cold hard cash.
According to Korean media, Lisa acquired the two-storey landed property, which comes with a basement, in July last year.
The apartment reportedly belonged to Jung Seonyun, whose grandfather is the CEO of South Korean multinational conglomerate Lotte Corporation.
Seonyun and her husband are the directors of Lotte New York Palace and they bought the land in 2014 and finished building the house in 2016.
They then sold it for S$8mil to Lisa in 2022.
We're guessing being cheated out of $1bil won (S$1.5mil) by her ex-manager in 2020 didn't have much impact on Lisa's finances after all.
Lisa was said to have allowed her manager to invest her money in real estate. However, the manager gambled it away instead.
At that time, Lisa's agency YG Entertainment issued a statement saying that the dispute was "resolved".
"As this was the manager she once trusted so wholeheartedly, Lisa personally hopes this matter could be resolved on a good note. [The manager] Has already returned part of the money and has made a plan to pay for the remaining sum before resigning," read the statement.
