Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin Face Criticism for Selling Newlywed Home at High Price.


Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin, a popular celebrity couple from South Korea, have recently come under fire for listing their newlywed home at a steep price. According to News 1 (South Korea), on June 7, Hyun Bin put his penthouse apartment at Walkerhill Grapeville (Acheon-dong, Guri-si, Gyeonggi-do) up for sale on a real estate trading platform for 7 billion won.

The apartment, purchased in June 2020 for 4.8 billion won, was officially transferred to Hyun Bin’s ownership in 2021. With the current asking price, the couple aims to make a profit of 2.2 billion won over four years.

The public reaction to this news has been largely critical. Many people believe that the Walkerhill Grapeville property, having been used, is not worth the 7 billion won price tag. Critics accuse Hyun Bin of leveraging his fame to inflate the price of their marital home for financial gain.

However, there are also voices in Hyun Bin’s defense, noting that the listed price is just a proposal. They argue that it is possible for Hyun Bin to lower the asking price depending on the negotiation process with potential buyers.

The penthouse at Walkerhill Grapeville, where Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin lived after their marriage in 2022, spans approximately 300 square meters and includes four bedrooms and four bathrooms. In addition to the living area, it boasts a rooftop garden covering about 415 square meters.

Like many other celebrities with stable financial status, Hyun Bin has continuously invested in real estate. In 2013, the “Crash Landing on You” actor purchased a family home for 4.8 billion won. He currently owns another building valued at around 10 billion won.

Not to be outdone by her husband, Son Ye Jin also has substantial real estate investments. In 2020, she acquired a building in Sinsa-dong for 16 billion won. In 2023, she bought another property in Yeoksam-dong for 24.4 billion won. Additionally, the “Nation’s First Love” actress owns villas in Samseong-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seogyo-dong, and Mapo-gu.

Despite the backlash, Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin’s real estate ventures highlight their keen investment strategies and the financial benefits of their careers in the entertainment industry. The couple’s real estate decisions, although controversial to some, reflect a common trend among successful celebrities investing in lucrative property markets.
