Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo’s house that served as their marital home increased its real estate value.
As obtained by GStar Live, financial media outlet Money Today cited that the property where the couple previously lived doubled its worth.
Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo’s Former Marital Home Costs THIS Much!
According to the news portal, the Hallyu actor acquired the property in November 2016 and bought it for 10 billion KRW or an estimated 7.64 million USD.
Six years later, Song Jong Ki’s house is now valued at 20 billion KRW or 15.29 million USD, increasing the price by 100 percent.
The significant boost in real estate value is due to the demand in actual transaction prices.
It can be recalled that the said five-story property is located in Itaewon which boasts 2 ground floors and 3 basement floors.
As noted by KBizoom, the Vicenzo star had it reconstructed two months before Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo got separated in 2017.
However, it was put on hold for more than a year due to several issues regarding their divorce.
Unfortunately, when the reconstruction continued, residents complained about the safety issues and noise, citing that the actor might have overlooked these aspects.
At one point, his neighbors even pointed out the actor violated Article 75 of the Road Act after the road slope went too steep to match his parking lot’s entrance but became an inconvenience to nearby residents.
The news regarding Song Joong Ki’s home comes ahead of his upcoming K-drama The Youngest Son of a Conglomerate.
