Seo In Guk landed in seventh place. Having debuted in Super Star K, he made good use of the prize, 100 million KRW (about $72,285). The singer-actor once shared, “I gave it all to my parents, but they still haven’t used it for what I know.”

DinDin ranked sixth. Having been on a roll in multiple variety shows, he not only gave his mother a credit card under his name but also some spare money. On his parents’ wedding anniversary, he gifted them a car worth 100 million KRW.

Fifth place went to Jo Kwon. After making it big as a singer, he gifted a car and a house to his parents, and whenever he went abroad, he said that he bought designer bags for them.

Fourth place went to Kim Jong Kook. He bought his parents the apartment that they’re living in Anyang, which is to be priced at 800 million KRW (about $578,325). It’s also quite well-known that he travels with them from time to time.

Kim Junsu, aka XIA, landed at No. 3. He gifted a townhouse worth 1.8 billion KRW (about $1.3 million) to his parents in Paju. The house has a ginormous garden, and on the inside, it’s equipped with a karaoke room, a minibar, and a playroom.

Second place went to Park Seri. Saying that she doesn’t mind the money she spends on her parents, she bought land of 500 pyeong (1653 square meters) in the joint name with her father.
