The mystery buyer of Trevor Noah’s luxurious Bel Air mansion, which was sold for a jaw-dropping $26 million last year, has finally been revealed. And the buyer turned out to be none other than Bang Si Hyuk, a successful media tycoon and one of South Korea’s wealthiest individuals. This lifelong musician may not be a household name in the United States, but his impressive net worth and remarkable accomplishments have earned him a place among the most successful moguls in the media industry.

The Bel Air mansion is a stunning work of contemporary architecture designed by the renowned Mark Rios and his husband Guy Ringler. Their masterpiece was even featured in a 2017 issue of Architectural Digest for its breathtaking design. But it seems the manor was too much for Trevor Noah to handle, as he sold the luxurious property to the media mogul Bang Si Hyuk just a year after purchasing it for a whopping $27.5 million. Although he sold it at a loss of $1.1 million, the ultra-contemporary mansion is sure to leave any guest awestruck with its modern aesthetics.

Nestled atop a steep ridge, this exquisite estate spans over one sprawling acre of hillside land. Concealed from prying eyes by towering hedges and a gated motorcourt that can comfortably house 10 luxurious vehicles, this magnificent property offers unparalleled privacy and exclusivity. For the convenience of staff and vendors, a separate gated entrance is also provided. Within the stunning confines of the estate lies a palatial residence, boasting six opulent bedrooms, 9.5 lavish bathrooms, and over 11,000 square feet of living space.

The interior of the house has a mostly minimalist design, with walls of glass that provide breathtaking views of the ocean and mountains. The property resembles a high-end five-star hotel and includes a library, gym, lounge, and a wine room with a hidden elevator accessible through a “secret” door. The luxurious gourmet kitchen boasts an eat-in island and imported wide-plank hardwood floors from Germany. The master retreat upstairs features dual marble bathrooms and dressing rooms. The hillside backyard includes a grassy lawn, a full outdoor kitchen, a bar, an open-air pavilion, and an infinity pool. There is also a Japanese-style spa with a sauna, massage, and changing rooms. The rooftop terrace doubles as an outdoor screening room for select VIP guests.

Bang started his career as a lyricist and composer and later founded Big Hit Entertainment, the company responsible for introducing K-pop sensation BTS to the world. Following the company’s 2020 IPO, Bang became a billionaire and was named one of Variety’s 500 most influential business leaders in the global media industry.
