Girls' Generation's Taeyeon has been making hits left and right, and it looks like it's been worthwhile for her and her parents.

On June 25, tvN's 'Lifestyler' show revealed Taeyeon recently raised her income by 900 million Won ($767,763 USD) due to her solo promotions. She's said to have used a good portion of the money to buy her parents a luxurious apartment with 3 bathrooms.

Reportedly, apartments in the building they live in cost anywhere from 800-900 million Won. Not only that, but Taeyeon is also known to have created a credit card for her parents with her first paycheck.

What an amazing daughter! In other news, Taeyeon recently released "Starlight" featuring DEAN ahead of her 'Why' album

Ok I understand it's really sweet of her....but 3 bathrooms? One it's for brushing theets, another for showers and another for bath or what? I understand 2, but 3 for 2 people (saying it's really for her parents) it's too much!

lol bc why settle for two bathrooms when you can have 3? one for each parent and another dedicated to their pets. a lot of ppl prolly have more bathrooms than they need bc they want a bigger house-more rooms for stuff.

She can stay there too, and she has a brother and a younger sister in school too who lives there. Surely you don;t expect them to stay on their own. In Korea, its common for the children to stay with their parents until marriage or careers are stable. In any case, having an extra bathroom is always good, 4-5 people sharing 3 bathrooms seems normal to me.

Damn, at least she is compensated for the talent she has and the work she puts in. There's been such a huge influx of kpop idols/groups in recent years that only a small percentage get to experience that "everlasting" fame and fortune, while the majority experience a quick peek into stardom and eventually disappear OR have to put in so much effort and barely scrape by. I feel like to make it big in a kpop group, you need to have a bunch of things come together for you at once: love for music, talent, effort, a good company (not necessarily a huge one, but one that, with some experience, will put the time and effort into promoting the group and caring for them, not only as income, but people as well), excellent teamwork, luck and good timing.

Love for music is a really important factor cause it reminds you of why you're in the industry in the first place. But I agree with everything that you said.

When you realise how serious some idols' income is smh.

micahxo_lu unseen Sunday, June 26, 2016

?? She earned every single won of what she has

unseen micahxo_lu Sunday, June 26, 2016

Where did I say she didn't earn it by herself?

micahxo_lu unseen Monday, June 27, 2016

You said "smh" as if she shouldn't be making that much money. She earned it.

unseen micahxo_lu Tuesday, June 28, 2016

I meant that usually I am not that aware of how much some idols can earn. It's insane how much they earn (the very famous ones of course, it's not like all idols earn the same). Like, some people not even working a lifetime could earn that.

micahxo_lu unseen Tuesday, June 28, 2016

//shrugs// That's life, but at least she's not wastefully flourishing her money

unseen micahxo_lu Tuesday, June 28, 2016

Yes, I totally give her props for that. I'm glad Korean celebrities seem very different to American celebrities in that aspect.
