And yet he's so humble! He built his wealth alone... SM fckers couldn't stop him! Congratz bby <3 but I believe Junsu's richer. BTW He bought that Audi R8 in 2008~2009 to get away from sasaengs haha. He said it himself

It’s like you were in my thoughts I was just about to say the same thing. As a loyal fan of JYJ, Junsu is the richest of the trio but rather than real estate his cars are worth a lot more . The problem with South Korean real estate is its extreme boost then fall again. The last year’s real estate bloom which I’m nuanced would have rounded Junsu’s to at least 145million dollars but it dipped earlier this year and coming back high as ever again. Yoochun also is almost as rich as Jaejoong but only trailing behind with a few million, but jokes apart these guys are made till their third generations.

JYJ COMEBACK PLEASEEE

i think all the JYJ members are very wealthy and rich. And Junsu owned some of the most expensive properties in seoul Not just one. . But he was not active in 2017 which this report was written.And they can't write about him when he was still in the army.

Yuchun has always been an active investor since the group was formed 8 years ago.And always have financial advisors actively managing his portfoilio. So the public don't get to read about his .

I don't think he "clawed" his way to the top. That implies vicious, harmful ways of getting to be successful. A poor--very poor--choice of words. He worked hard and long from his childhood on through many problems. He remained devoted, kept his dignity, and worked hard. Worked hard! That's how he got to the top.

For those who's saying that original article says his net worth is $10M:

It's true but that article talks about only J-Line building ($7M, as said in the article) and the flat in Samsung-dong($2,5M). Not about the whole of JJ's net worth. They didn't include his cars (right now he has 7 cars, ~$2M), his 2 new flats ($6.4M), 3rd and 4th floors(~$13 or15M) of KAVE which he bought a few months ago. Closed Cafe J-Holic but the others continue. He purchased them, didn't rent. No idea about how much each of them would cost. For sure, not less than $5M. So, please stop claiming his net worth is $10m lol. Maybe not $100M but not less than $50M. Go check the news when he revealed his home in Japanese TV. Only the stupid ornaments and artworks in his house cost around $5M. His Allkpop added the new ones and all of them are true except for Cafe J-Holic. It's closed down.

As jaejoong fan, I'm happy but at the same time i really dont like if people making this kind of article. I'm 100% sure he is rich. No doubt. Few thing I dont like is:

1. Some of the info is outdated already.

2. You will never know how rich he is (or any idol) unless you read all their doc/see their bank account

3. Anti or hater use this to make as if he (or any rich idol) like to show off and not being 'humble" compare to others. Its journalist who love to write and make speculation or estimation of celeb wealth.

4. Bad people will use this kind of info to scam celeb. (Its scary)

SM entertainment artists never show off their wealth. For example Siwon. We know he's born rich but you barely see him being mentioned in Korean or Western magazines like Allkpop. The same goes for TVXQ. They have the highest revenue in terms of sales but we don't know where they live at, which car(s) they own etc. Also for JYJ, Koreans never report about them so it's normal that you dont know about their wealth. If you read some Japanese magazines, you will see the opposite from Korean/Western magazines. For example TVXQ were ranked 3 times for earning the most money in Japan with their sales but how many of you know about this?

JJ WAS in TVXQ, jerk. SM tried so very hard to take everything away from him, Junsu & Yoochun. Are you not even aware of all this??? OMG.
The ONLY reason the Duo are still at the top (although Yunho is a wonderful dancer/choreographer, & Changmin is a good vocalist and brilliant overall) is SM pouring all they can into them. After all, when the split happened, TVXQ (hugely popular thru-out Asia) lost their top 2 vocalists and the rapper.
Obviously you are being prejudiced here.
Also, however much money TVXQ-duo earn now, SM takes a huge cut off the top. JYJ haven't had to worry about THAT for 8 years now.

Tvxq as a duo does earn a bit more than JYJ, but it's not much of a difference. And if you count solo projects, JYJ could be above Tvxq.


I love and support both groups, after all, we're both a family of Cassiopeias. I hope we don't fight.

I know these all, DB5K fan here. Seems like I was misundertood.

I saw a few comments here saying that JJ was irrelevant, they have never seen him on magazines or in any rankings and got surprised seeing him as the richest kpop idol.

I just wanted to say that not everything they see on magazines is true. For example Korean and Western kpop magazines barely report on Jaejoong. This is why many people are not aware of him recently.

SM artists live more conservative (must be company's policy), they don't talk about their wealth on TVs or magazines. YG artists love to show off (again it's company's policy), wear luxury clothes since their debut, talk about their and their labelfellows' wealth and exaggerate their wealth etc. Thus, many people think that YG artists are the richest and believe in stupid rankings stating, "Psy #1 $40m, Siwon #2 $30, GD #3 $25" etc.

I know that Junsu is the richest one, and then comes Jaejoong^^

the original article says exceeds 10 million net worth not is 10 million and it certainly does not state 100 million. They rarely give an exact number. 100 million is a shit ton of money and is a huge difference compared to

around 20million net worth. Yes he would have had to have money in order to buy the buildings but its not likely hes buying the building while having a bulk of cash on hand still. The bulk of his cash would have been used to buy the buildings. There's a lot of info missing here though, most of the time when people buy buildings they don't buy them

outright in full, the earnings on albums and concerts don't state whether they are net income or simply profits before expenses are taken into account, again most of the time when they state revenue its just the number before you would take out paying off expenses occurred. Also if he is making 20million plus a year around 40% is going to taxes. I can almost guarantee you though that those numbers reported are not net of expenses nor taxes. His buildings are rental income, the business he runs are corporate taxes and the concerts etc are his personal income. If he is smart about his money he would be pulling in 1-5million+ a year and that is a huge accomplishment. These days people take money way too

lightly it is not that easy to rack up 100 million simply by buying real estate and cars.

Smart guy. Real estate is definitely a good investment. Not so sure about the restaurants. They can come and go very easily if you look at the stats, but I am sure his name associated with them will keep them going for now. Cars are also good or bad, depending. In the end, it all comes down to his smarts and hope that his investments will just keep making money and not losing money. You just never know in the end. I hope his success continues. He 1000% deserves it after the treatment of SME. I look at Seungri of BigBang as well, He also has done very well for himself, maybe not to this extent, but he is also a very good business person. You can't just blow all your earnings. Learn from these guys. Invest well and you will always be taken care of. It also depends on liquidation of assets. Something might be worth a lot of money now, but depending on the market, country, situation can end up being worthless. Not saying this will happen with him, and I really hope it doesn't, but you have to be on your toes all the time. Especially if you are depending on someone else to run things for you. You can only trust yourself. Look how many S-Korean celebs have gone bankrupt for different reasons.

It's a long story... his birth mother gave him up for adoption when he was a baby, he grew up without knowing he was adopted, and when he became famous his birth parents suddenly appeared out of nowhere and tried to claim him as their own. His mother goes on all sorts of shows and stuff describing how it felt meeting her son for the first time, blah blah blah when, had he not become famous, she would probably have never come into the picture. And whenever he was involved in a scandal or struggle, she would be nowhere to be seen and it would be his foster family behind his back. She's an attention seeker, no doubt she tries to get his money as well.

GD's net worth reported to be $40M.

Daesung didn't pay whole $30M at once, it's kinda renting it. He paid $1m USD deposit, and still keeps paying $80K every month. I will take him 2 years more to have that building completely.

Taeyang's $50m from real estate investments was a lie.

Okay... just came here to see Jaejoong but you guys mention my men TVXQ and its not fair. They never show their money or anything. My boyfriend U-know is busy saving money to build a school for kids and my husband Changmin lives calmly so let them be.

They don't like to brag and for me is totally fine♡

Just support them and stop talking about SM. (You guys sound like a broken record)

Jaejoong has releases out right now. Two single releases, leading up to an album. "Defiance" is the latest.

Only this year Jaejoong released two singles in Japan and they were sertified Gold by RIAJ and he had fanmeeting and concerts tours. He constantly works.

But this article is wrong about numbers because there is mistake in translation of original article. And original article also is not correct because he don't own all this at the same time. He sold all his cars before his military service and bought new ones after discharge. He is opening KAVEs now, J-Holic and Bum's are closed.

On tv program he said that he sold his old house and moved into new.

This article just put all this together as if he owns all this now.

And GD and several others korean idols actually can be richer than Jaejoong because they were not and are not restricted to promote in Korea like Jaejoong.

Fans work hard to earn money so they can afford to pay for their basic needs, leisure and entertainment. We don't lose money because we get much more than its worth in return, listening to his music, going to his concerts, fans are more inspired to work hard, even harder every day. We don't lose, we gain fantastic experiences that we are willing to experience over and over again, sorry if you can't relate.

?? stop calling us/his fans stupid. Why do you care about how we spend our money? If his fan are happy then what is the problem? He provide his fan with entertainment that able to help them to release stress, enjoy etc. He inspire us to be more successful in life - to become a rich person, based on our own definition of being rich.

The original article said Jaejoong net worth exceeds 10 billion won which is 10 million USD not 100 million USD. It also didn't mentioned anything about Jaejoong being the wealthiest kpop idol.

https://kban.me/article/596

There is a lot of stuff added to this article that wasn't in that Kban article so either the author is huge Jaejoong fan and knew to add these new things that were missing or he/she had some other source beside that Kban article. Either way even with these new added things 100 million USD is still huge exaggeration 20 million USD would be far more realistic estimate of Jaejoong net worth.

I don’t know what the original article says since I don’t understand Japanese but I just wanted to comment on something. 20M would be a huge underestimation of his networth. He wouldn’t be buying 7M USD buildings, his extravagant house and cars if his total networth was this little. Up till middle of this year, his tour gathered 100K people, making around 10M USD (if you consider the average cost per ticket 100 USD, some cost more, some less but when I was purchasing the ticket as an international fan it cost around 108 US) so he made around 10M USD just during half of this year. He started another hall tour after this was recorded too. And that’s not even counting his album sales, tv appearances or various profits from all his investments. Keep in mind he's been active for 15 years too, selling and gathering more audience than this year too in previous years/tours. i think he makes per single year alot more than what you think his networth is.

You are right. And the most important thing is that Jaejoong does everything almost alone and their company actually was found for JYJ. So their profit is at least 90% of their revenues. For example Most of Jaejoong's songs belong fully to himself. Lyrics, music, production belong to him, no help from the others. His promoter is himself. He even directed his own concerts. He was so active since April. Appeared in +100 tv/radio shows, +20 magazines... +100k concert attendees, tons of fan meetings. I'm sure he made at least $20M in revenue only in 7 months

True. Regardless of the original article, I think the number here is a lot more plausible. Wouldn’t be surprised if it’s more. Because no one really would splurge as much as he does unless his net worth is tremendous. (Not a diss, he’s worked his ass off for it and deserves to enjoy it to the fulles) And I dare say he may actually be the wealthiest Kpop idol considering his profit distribution with CJeS (and probably Kdash too) other artist may make more, but they have to share with at least one more member and I doubt the profit distribution is in their favor as much as Jaejoong’s (generally JYJ’s) is.

Dunno how to read Japanese but how can his net worth be only $10M USD while he has a building which is worth $7M, 4 flats worth over $10M, owning 2 flats of a mall in Shibuya (the most expensive city in the world, if you consider 40 meter square flats rented out for ~$4-5K, we can easily estimate that the flats he purchased are worth more than $10M each). Also he still has all of his cars and they worth more than $3m. I searched about his real estates and cars, all of these in the article are true. If that Japanese article says $10M, then that article is wrong lol

Jaejoong has a dedicated Asian/Japanese fanbase. He's popular in Japan, with his solo singles always making it to the Top 3 Oricon chart, and Japan is where Kpop idols make the majority of their income through concerts. Jaejoong is a solo act so he doesn't have to share with any members and he has been touring nonstop since leaving SM almost 9 years ago. He gets to keep a much larger percentage of the profit for himself instead of having to give up a big chunk like what idols under the Big 3 agencies do. Also as you can see, he has invested in a lot of real estate and businesses.

He's not only famous in Japan! JJ is a GOD in the Americas! Another thing that all these people that got into Kpop 3 months ago and don't know him don't seem to understand: JAEJOONG (And the other guys) Have EXTREMELY loyal fans... Also, most (Not all, but most) Are older and they don't only watch videos on replay on YT to make their videos get to 500M views (They rarely watch their MV's); they actually buy merchandise! To an extent that could be scary to those not prepare to see it or assimilate the... Enthusiastic level of his fans.


MOST OF ALL THAT MONEY ENDS UP IN HIS POCKETS!

He's very relevant, you trollish fool. He's been active in SK doing dramas, and is now starring in a Korean variety show (second season - Photo People) which makes me so happy! He's very active in Japan, which has been JYJ's main base due to SM's blackballing the group from music & variety shows. The fact that you obviously don't even know when the split occurred just shows your ignorance.

Lol you kidding? Your words prove that you got into K-Pop max. 4 years ago. He was the most famous idol till SM and Japan blocked him and JYJ in Japan and Korea. This is why no one heard of him in the last 4 years. He's still the most famous K-pop idol in Japan, even more famous than most of Japanese idols.

Every KPOP group is doing concerts in Japan now.

Selling music in Japanese.

No Japan artists are going to Korea for concerts.

That guy is a nobody.

No one even knows he is alive.

He has ZERO fame.

In other words,,,,what has he done lately?
