5 Korean Idols Who Were Born Into Wealthy Families

Regardless of their wealth, they still had to work hard to get where they are now.

Some idols, like IU, work hard to escape poverty or so they can pay back their families for the support they received over the years.

On the other end of the spectrum, there are idols we were born into wealthy families. Being born rich, of course, doesn’t negate the effort they put in toward achieving their dreams.

With that being said, here is a list of 5 idols who were born rich.

1. Girl’s Generation’s Sooyoung

Sooyoung‘s grandfather owns an architectural company, so her family owns (at least) two houses.

2. 2PM’s Nichkhun

Nichkhun‘s mom is the CEO of Union Medical, which is a leading pharmaceutical importer and distributor in their home country of Thailand.

3. Super Junior’s Siwon

Siwon‘s dad is the former CEO of Boryung Medicine, a pharmaceutical company.

4. EXO’s Suho

Suho has previously stated publicly that he comes from a wealthy family.

5. Jung Ill Woo

Actor Jung Il Woo‘s grandpa was a doctor who attended to a former President of South Korea.

The list of born-wealthy idols is actually much longer than this! Who would you have included on this list?
