After admitting to their relationshipIU and Lee Jong Suk are garnering a lot of attention for their new combined wealth.

South China Morning Post named IU as the richest female K-pop idol of 2021 in an article they released in September last year. According to their report, her net worth is estimated to be roughly $41.3 million. She, who debuted in 2008 and has been living as a top star for the last decade, revealed, “I earned all the money needed for the rest of my life in my early 20s. So I don’t need to stack up any more wealth.”

The singer has also invested much in property. She acquired a high-end villa in Cheongdam-dong for $10.2 million and astonished her fans by purchasing it with no loans — and all in cash. Moreover, she owns a $3.61 million music studio located in Gwacheon and a $1.72 million two-story house in Yangpyeong-gun. She reportedly spent an extra $627K to purchase the land around the bi-level house.

Lee Jong Suk is nothing short of superb when it comes to wealth. Reports say that he bought a house in Sinsa-dong for about $3 million in 2016 and reconstructed it into a two-story cafe. Four years later, in 2020, he sold the cafe for $4.66 million and raked in $1.61 million.

In 2018, he purchased a small two-story building with one basement in Hannam-dong for $2.35 million and sold it three years later for $2.82 million.

Some reports indicate that the actor bought La Terrasse Hannam, a high-end residential property located in the most affluent neighborhood in Seoul, for about $3.37 million in 2015 and lived there until 2021. Although he moved to Nine One Hannam, another residential building priced at $5.72 million per unit, he reportedly still owns his previous residence. The market price for a 3195 square feet unit of La Terrace Hannam is approximately $9.4 million. 

According to Money Today’s report, Lee Jong Suk has made over $11.8 million from his TV appearances and $13.71 million from endorsing 35 brands from 2014 to 2023.
