Rain and Kim Tae Hee have been known for being active in real estate, but it looks like one of their commercial buildings isn’t sold yet.

According to reports, the couple’s building in Gangnam is still empty, doesn’t have a buyer, and has massive loans that need repayment. So, are Rain and Tae Hee experiencing a loss of profit here?

Rain and Kim Tae Hee’s Unsold Building

Netizens talk about the media reports about the celebrity couple whose expensive building doesn’t have any tenants or buyers on a community forum, as translated by AllKpop.

The pair believed to be Rain and Kim Tae Hee, reportedly purchased the building in June 2021 for a whopping 92 billion KRW.

However, they allegedly returned it to the market after just a year with an asking price of 140 billion KRW.

The two denied selling the building again, but additional reports claimed they “took back their offers” when buyers didn’t show up.

Real estate experts suggested a 140 billion KRW asking price isn’t a “realistic cost for average buyers” even though the building is located in one of the prime locations in Gangnam.

In addition, the netizens also discuss the amount of expenses and monthly loan payments Rain and Kim Tae Hee need to pay, which is probably around 200 million KRW a month.
