On the October 27th episode of JTBC's 'Give Me a New House for an Old One 2', Kangnam shared, "I came here after demolishing my old house. I live with my pet just the two of us," revealing his home. He added, "My mom came and did the interior design and furniture. It's obvious it's a mother's taste."

As for how he saved up to buy a building, he said, "I'm a miser. I don't spend money. I don't spend any. Besides food, I don't spend money, and I don't buy clothes. I don't even spend more than $200 USD in a month. I put everything into my savings account."

He works so hard... I'm happy for him

that's actually quite commendable... as long as he doesn't forget to enjoy some R&R!

man they portrayed him to be all broke before.... it paid off!!  he doesn't spend $200/month of his OWN money..... you can't live off $200/mo these days...

Believe me, where I work, I'm getting paid $280/month. I live alone and I'm studying architecture, but still, I have managed to survive until now...

So it's not impossible

i guess where you live it is possible.... but in the states... it would be a struggle

Even in the states, it would be possible as most of an idol's living expenses are covered by the company, such as the dorm, clothes for work, etc. Really other than food and toiletries he would have few other expenses. He has bandmates he lives with I would assume, so that helps stretch food money by buying in bulk. Also, there are probably several days per week where food is provided for free where he is working or at an event he is attending, which stretches his food dollar. Regardless the guy seems to really grasp that fame is fleeting, so save and invest wisely, so he has a good nest egg built up. It may not be enough that he never has to work again, but it sounds like it was enough that at least he can choose what work he wants to do in the future and not have money be the deciding factor.

he lives alone... hence my reaction. he was on the show "I Live Alone"

I need to be a miser too then ...he spend in a month what I spent in a day and then some😔😔

NDJOON94 Thursday, October 27, 2016

Rather than buying a building, he could use that money to buy a normal house.. butttt is it a  1/2/3 room house he is referring to or a building flat houses?

Looolgolol Thursday, October 27, 2016

He's being smart

hanalala707 Thursday, October 27, 2016
