It is known that Jungkook, a member of the group BTS, donated an apartment worth 4 billion won to his older brother.
On the 16th, Biz Korea reported that BTS Jungkook donated an apartment on the 17th floor of Yongsan City Park to Seobinggo-ro, Yongsan-gu, Seoul in December of last year to his brother Jeong-hyeon Jeon. The mortgage was set at ‘0 won’ and 100% cash. Jungkook bought the apartment in July 2019 for 2.98 billion won.
