130218 Super Junior’s Choi Siwon and Others Make Richest Idol List
On February 18, SBS Good Day reported on the current richest idols with extensive research.
The richest idol was named as Super Junior’s Choi Siwon, who had previously revealed his father’s transfer from a big company to another major company.
Choi Siwon’s fellow member Leeteuk said, “As far as wealth and power goes, Siwon is definitely number one. If there’s ever a problem or an issue within the members of Super Junior, Siwon says he’ll ask his father for help.”
Leeteuk continued, “Siwon made the most profit among Super Junior in 2011 by filming many CFs abroad in Thailand, China, and Taiwan.”
Eunhyuk added, “What we earn doesn’t even come close to what Siwon already had to begin with. But Siwon makes a lot of money through advertisements, becoming even richer.”
Choi Siwon’s father had been the CEO at Boryung Medience Co. after getting his degree from Dongguk University and spending his time at Hanhwa Corporation as well as Korea Fashion Association.
He is also currently an adjunct professor at Sungkonghoe University and said to have resigned from his company for personal reasons.
