G-Friend appeared on MBC FM4U's 'Kim Shin Young's Noon Song of Hope' on July 13!


On this day, Kim Shin Young said, "I saw an article where G-Friend was asked, 'What would you do if you won the jackpot?' in another interview and you said you would like to buy a house for you to live with your fans.  Is this true?"

Yuju was the one who answered that she'd buy a house for G-Friend to live with Buddys. She replied, "I answered like that.  I meant that I wanted to do something special for our fan club."  Kim Shin Young wisely told her, "Fans need to live in their own homes," and Yuju replied, "Then we will all eat together," changing her answer from buying a house to buying them dinner, which definitely seems smarter.


The other members took their turns answering.  Yerin said, "If I won the lottery, I want to become a rich jobless person.  I want to live as a woman about town while strumming the guitar and blowing on the recorder," causing laughter.


Eunha said, "I would save up," and Sowon said, "I want to buy my dream car."

I would do the same as Eunha and just save up.

Yerin and I have the same idea. But Eunha's the smart one...

I would donate 80% to charity.

k_kid neoncolors_0 Thursday, July 14, 2016

And then you'll regret it when you need that money ;)

neoncolors_0 k_kid Thursday, July 14, 2016

That attitude... How selfish and pessimistic can someone be lmao? If this the par of g friend, I'm disappointed but glad I'm not a fan.

Do you realize how big 80% is? I think there's anyone in this world that would actually donate that much money, especially here in the US. If you won $50 million in the lottery, you're donating $40 million and you're left with only $10 million. Which is still a lot of money, but nowhere near the amount to retire and help your family unless you're someone who's really smart with their money and know how to save. And plus, if you did win, you can't just live in a regular neighborhood anymore since you're targeted by people and they'll try to rob you for your money. Worst case scenario, kidnapped.

Wtf... no: "... but nowhere near the amount to retire". That's FAR BEYOND the amount the average person earns in a lifetime. In fact, i would donate 90- 95% of winnings, why? Because I'm not a greedy motherfucker whose sole concern is money. Therefore, I wouldn't need to live in a "non-regular" (whatever that means) neighbourhood in fear of being "targeted by people".

Of course, it's a big amount. I've even said it's a big amount. And no need to curse as well, I haven't cursed at you once. I don't know what country you live, but in the US, in most states, you have to give out your name and most of the time you have to take a picture and show your face to the world. There's a lot of people whose lives have gotten worse because of that. People think you win the lottery and that's that. But they don't realize the hardships that come with that if they're not smart with it. Read the lottery stories that happened in the US. There's family members that murdered their siblings, people going into worse debt, etc., Even $50,000 seems like a lot, but it goes out quickly if you're not responsible and I've seen it happen personally. If I won, I would invest the money and make more off of it THEN donate whatever amount I want to donate. But I would rather give my parents the comfort before I donate any money.

"most of the time you have to take a picture and show your face to the world. There's a lot of people whose lives have gotten worse because of that." Yes, and that's procedural for all lottery winners. Thus, IF they did win the lottery, keeping the money would instigate danger, whereas donating wouldn't. Plus you aren't fostering a greedy mindset where even $50,000 "goes out quickly". And you said $10million was "nowhere near the amount to retire", which is FALSE for the average american.

k_kid neoncolors_0 Friday, July 15, 2016

In most states in the US you have to take a picture and a few states allow complete anonymity. Here in California, you have to release your name and the city you live in, but you can opt out of taking a picture. And if you donated 80%, 90%, or 95% as you said, you're still a millionaire. Thus, it still places you in a vulnerable spot. You have no idea how people try to leech off of you. My friend has a friend who won $15 million in the mid 1990s from the Superlotto and the guy had friends and his own family who left him broke and he ended up committing suicide. From what my friend told me is that he was a good guy and donated a BIG chunk to the church since he was religious, but still went broke after friends and family would constantly ask him for money. I'm 27, if I won the lottery, there's no way I can retire off of 10 million until I die without work. Maybe if I was older yeah. But if I get a girlfriend, there's dates to pay for. If I get married, then there's the ring+wedding+house/apartment/furnitures/food/gas for car, etc. If I have kids, there's clothes+food+baby stuff, allowance money, tuition for a good school to send them to from elementary to university. There's money I'll want to give to my parents, my siblings, my mother and father in law for vacation and comfort. My own vacations and comfort. Dentist, hospital checkups, etc, etc for myself and family. All these things add up very, very quickly. Unless you live in a developmental country, there's no way you can live in comfort without work or smart investments. ESPECIALLY if you donate 95%, which leaves you with 2.5 million. In that case, say I live until I was 95, which gives me 68 more years to live. With 2.5 million, I have exactly $36,764.71 to spend a year for 68 years so I can break even when I die. With all the stuff I've mentioned, there's no way you can retire comfortably with that money.
