HYBE Chairman Bang Si-hyuk and the celebrity couple Taeyang & Min Hyo-rin have their residence in Hannam-dong recognized as the most expensive house in Seoul
On the Dec 1st broadcast of TV Chosun’s “All the Houses in the World”, the discussion focused on the TOP 3 house prices globally.
Due to the recent rise in prices, Seoul was identified as the second most challenging city to live in after New York. The average transaction price for an apartment in Seoul in 2023 is 1.05393 billion won, with an average price per square meter at about 45 million won. Boom commented, “I heard that Seoul is considered the second most challenging city to live in after New York.“
Hong Hyun-hee expressed frustration, “When can I make enough money to buy a house?” Boom chimed in, and Hong Hyun-hee complained, “No, Boom, you have it. We are the only ones here without a house.” Boom explained, “I collected money bit by bit and bought it.”
Observing this, Hong Jin-kyung told Hong Hyun-hee, “You’ve become more irritable.” Feeling embarrassed, Hong Hyun-hee smilingly said, “I became more irritable after having a baby. I’m sensitive at home.“
Later, the most expensive house in Seoul was revealed, the “Paarc X Hannam”, which set a record for the highest real estate price at 18 billion won.
Boom mentioned, “The person living there is Chairman Bang Si-hyuk.” Hong Hyun-hee expressed envy, “That person has a few trillion won.” Boom clarified, “It’s the corporate value, not a few trillion won in his pocket.“
