Seungri says each of his ramen restaurants brings in about $180k every month

Seungri talked about earning the big bucks through his ramen franchise.

On the July 1st episode 'Ugly Duckling', Seungri and Lee Sang Min visited a ramen restaurant in Tokyo. While eating, Seungri came to reveal some facts about his own chain of ramen places. The ramen chain he owns is called 'Aori Ramen', and he has 45 restaurants in Korea.

"How much money do you make? If you make at least 50 million won per restaurant, how much does the entire profit amount up to? About 2 billion won per month?" questioned Lee Sang Min.

"I have 45 of them, and each makes about 200 million won (~$180k) every month," said Seungri. Lee Sang Min, momentarily dumbstruck, responded, "You made it big, young man. Then how much does that translate into, annually?" To this, Seungri called himself "Seung-sby" (from 'The Great Gatsby'), but denied that he owns 100% of the profits.

Nevertheless, Lee Sang Min pleaded Seungri and asked if there weren't any director positions at his company. "I have a lot of experience! Please let me take care of one of the franchises, too!" the entertainer appealed.

Recently, reports revealed that F.T. Island's Jonghyun is also one of the franchisees of 'Aori Ramen'. Although Seungri's status as a successful CEO is well-known, the exact estimates of his profits are still in question among netizens.
