First up, we have BLACKPINK‘s very own Lisa starting off our list. While all 4 BLACKPINK members are extremely wealthy on their own, it’s been reported that Lisa may be the wealthiest of them all due to her loyal fanbase out in her home country of Thailand.

Aside from her singing career, Lisa is also well-known for her incredible fashion, which has been noticed by the world’s largest brands. She has endorsed for some of the biggest brands, such as AdidasCelineBulgari, and more. Her net worth is reported to be anywhere from $10-14 million dollars, which makes sense as to why she is number 7 on this list.

6. Yoona (Girls’ Generation)

Next up, we have the one and only Yoona from Girls’ Generation. Yoona is not only a part of one of the world’s biggest girl groups to date, but she has successfully transformed her career from a K-Pop idol to an actress. In addition to her ongoing singing career with Girls’ Generation for the past 14 years, she’s been in dozens of popular productions as an actress so it’s no wonder Yoona makes it onto this list!

As if that weren’t enough, the Girls’ Generation member is also a hit with brand advertisements, as she continues to remain one of the most highly coveted CF stars of South Korea. With all of that combined, it’s been reported that Yoona’s net worth is somewhere around $25 million dollars!

5. Suzy

Following in Yoona’s footsteps, we have another idol-turned-actress but this time, it’s none other than Suzy. While she originally debuted with her girl group Miss A, Suzy catapulted into A-List status following her transition into the acting industry. She has been in hit after hit, such as Dream HighUncontrollably FondVagabondStart-Up and more that it’s no wonder that Suzy’s net worth has only been increasing over time.

In addition to all of her hit productions, Suzy is also another top “CF Queen,” as brands fight for her endorsement. Along with all of that, the former idol member also owns some real estate, which adds onto her overall net worth of $25 million dollars.

4. BoA

The true veteran “Queen of K-Pop” comes in hot at number 4 on this list. It’s not surprising to see BoA on this list, as the legendary K-Pop star has seen grand successes not only in South Korea, but in Japan and most of East Asia. Having been in the industry for over two decades, the singer has released dozens of studio albums in many different languages.

Not only that, but she has also made her mark in the entertainment industry outside of her singing career. She has appeared on television as a judge for SBS‘s K-Pop Star, and she’s acted in several different productions. All of this in addition to her impressively long career makes up for her reported net worth of around $25 million dollars.

3. Sandara Park

We have former 2NE1 member Sandara Park at number 3 on this list. The former K-Pop idol member had an impressive 7-year career with her former girl group, seeing domestic and international success. And that didn’t change following 2NE1’s disbandment, as Sandara Park continued to see success in her solo career as well.

Similarly to BLACKPINK’s Lisa, Sandara Park has a massively loyal fanbase out in the Philippines, which is where she started her entertainment career. She is also another highly coveted endorsement model, as she rakes in the sponsorship deals with brands, such as Etude HouseNikon, and more. That in addition to her successful YouTube channel, where she boasts an impressive 1.3 million subscribers add onto her overall net worth of $30 million dollars.

2. Lee Hyori

Next up, we have Lee Hyori, who may be the original OG of all female K-Pop idols. Having made her debut with Fin.K.L back in 1998, Lee Hyori has been in the industry for 23 years. While her impressive career with her girl group accounts for her large wealth, that is not the only reason behind her riches.

The singer has always been known for her natural beauty, which makes her a hot commodity in the advertisement world. She’s snagged highly coveted deals with Samsung and numerous soju brands, such as Lotte Liquor. Her net worth of $30-40 million dollars only grew after she featured in her own Netflix series titled Hyori’s Bed and Breakfast, which went on to see incredible success.

1. IU


Last, but most certainly not least we have IU. The talented singer has quickly become one of the top K-Pop stars in the nation, despite being a solo female artist. IU proved herself with not only her singing abilities, but with her producing and composing abilities as well. She has written dozens of her own songs, as well as for many other artists.

As if that weren’t enough, IU endorses for many brands, as she boasts impressive partnerships with Sony KoreaGuess, and many others. The talented singer also dabbles in acting, with her previous works including Hotel del LunaScarlet Heart RyeoMy Mister, and many more. All of that combined and her real estate endeavors adds up to her net worth of a whopping $31-45 million dollars, which makes her the richest female K-Pop star.
