SNSD Member Taeyeon’s Net Worth
The sixth SNSD member whose net worth we will investigate is Taeyeon, the main vocalist and the leader of the group. Back in the middle of 2012, Taeyeon revealed on KBS’ Happy Together that she bought her parents an apartment in her hometown after saving up a bit of money, which made her parents cry with pride. Although not really detailed, Taeyeon said that the house has three bathrooms so the size of the building must be large. Three years later, it was revealed through the broadcast of tvN’s Lifestyler that Taeyeon has raised her income by KRW 900 million or $ 767,763 million and that the apartment she bought for her parents has the current price of KRW 900 million, which is the equivalent of Taeyeon’s net worth for the entire year.
Besides having a house, Taeyeon also owns three cars, namely the Mercedes Benz SLK 55 AMG for KRW 69.6 million won or $ 61.653,25, the Porsche Boxster for KRW 70 million or $ 61.653,25, and BMW M4 which she bought in 2016.
SNSD Member Tiffany Hwang’s Net Worth
The seventh SNSD member whose net worth we will investigate is Tiffany Hwang, the lead vocalist of the group who left SM Entertainment in 2017. During the broadcast of OnStyle’s The Taetiseo, the fans were able to get a glimpse of Tiffany’s lavish villa in her hometown, Los Angeles, the United States. Not only well-built, the building also has the garden and the outdoor swimming pool where the people who visit the place can enjoy the sunlight.
Not only having a spacious villa, Tiffany also owns a convertible car, namely a pink Chevrolet Spark which the price is estimated to be KRW 9 million or $ 8013.31 and the famous Rolex watch for $ 16,000.
SNSD Member Yoona’s Net Worth
The eighth SNSD member whose net worth we will investigate is Yoona, the face of the group. Along with Taeyeon, Yoona is known to be the breadwinner of the group as, before her debut with SNSD, Yoona had already ventured into the field of acting and snatched a virtual lifetime contract with the cosmetic brand, Innisfree. Back in 2012, Yoona stated that her net worth is KRW 3.4 billion or $ 3 million, which she earned only from the commercials. It is not a surprise that perhaps that at the present time, Yoona’s net worth has increased significantly due to her consistent popularity amongst the new stars of Korean entertainment industry.
Unlike the other members that we have talked about, there is not a lot of information about Yoona’s property or house. However, it was revealed that Yoona has a luxurious car, namely the Sciroco R-Line Volkswagen which the price is estimated at KRW 49 million or $ 43.551,97.
SNSD Member Kwon Yuri’s Net Worth
The last SNSD member whose net worth we will investigate is Yuri, the lead dancer of the group. Just like the former groupmate Jessica, Yuri also purchased a villa in the 9th building of Sangji Ritzville in Cheongdamdong. It was reported that Yuri had to pay KRW 1.7 billion or $ 1.55 million to acquire the building, with an area of 204 square meters in September 2012. In addition, Yuri took out a loan of KRW 700 million or $ 650,000 to obtain the building with four bedrooms, each having a walk-in closet and access to the three bathrooms.
Besides having a house, Yuri also owns a car, namely the BMW Z4 with an estimated price of KRW 57 million or $ 49,000.
Who is the Richest SNSD Member?
After examining each of the SNSD member’s net worth, we can conclude that even though all the members (except the former member Jessica) receive KRW 900 million or $ 807,000 yearly, there is still a gap between them. The face of the group, Yoona, is still proven to be the richest member as in 2012, as she is able to take home KRW 3.4 billion from her endorsements, not even including her personal activities as an actress and guest star of variety shows. In the second position is the main vocalist and leader Taeyeon who, besides singing with her teammates, also releases solo albums, original soundtracks for dramas, collaborations, and guest starred on variety shows during the early days of SNSD. The American girls Tiffany and Jessica followed up in the third place, as Tiffany does not spend much money on property and car in South Korea actually did a massive splurge to buy a big villa and car in her hometown, the United States, whereas Jessica who left the group in 2014 became the young conglomerate, as she is continuously expanding her company ‘Blanc & Eclare’ to be not only eyewear but also a clothing line. Then, the fourth rank is occupied by the youngest member Seohyun who is included in the line-up of SNSD’s sub-unit TaeTiSeo and has individual activities as well as an actress. The fifth place is owned by other actresses of the group, namely Sooyoung and Yuri, who not only act in dramas and movies, but also became brand ambassadors for well-known products. Lastly, Hyoyeon and Sunny shared the sixth, and also last ranking in the terms of wealth. Even so, both of Hyoyeon and Sunny acquired grand apartments in the same building so after all, even the SNSD members who are placed last in the ranking are still considered rich.
