Tae-hee Kim is not only an acting and endorsement star but she is also a real estate maven as illustrated by her recent purchase. The actress, who is dating fellow actor 'Rain', recently purchased a building that is worth approximately 13 billion 'won' the building was built in 2011 and contains apartments, schools and restaurants. She paid for the building with a $5 billion loan and the rest in cash.
Entertainment insiders upon hearing the news immediately started comparing her real estate investment to that of her boyfriend and interestingly they learned that he also owns 2 building that are worth a total of $12 million which has likely resulted in some interesting discussions about their financial planning and business deals.
She is currently in China filming the drama "Wang Xizhi" and the news of her purchase has some entertainment insiders admiring her business acumen as the building will bring her almost 60 million won per month and 1 billion won in deposits from tenants.
When you are one of the most well-paid actresses in Korea you need to find ways to invest your money and in a country such as South Korea where land is at a premium, in particular the area of Gangnam, one of the expensive and crowded locales, the purchase of a building seems to be a very smart move.
Tae-hee Kim is already one of the most in-demand endorsers and a star in South Korean film. For some entertainment insiders her venture comes to them as a surprise but to many who have followed her rise to prominence this type of shrewd business decision is not a surprise.
Her career has been marked by smart career decisions since she came to prominence on the television show "Stairway to Heaven" in 2003 and following two commercially unsuccessful films she returned to television with the 2009 miniseries "Iris" which was a critical and commercial success and propelled her to superstar status, a role she has not relinquished.
Tae-hee Kim, an actress who is not just a star on the small and big screen with a beautiful face, she is also an intelligent and savvy business woman who possesses the instincts of a real estate maven as well.
