Is BTS moving out of their dorms? Some seem to think so!
On January 28, Biz Hankook reported that the maknae of BTS has purchased his own apartment for reportedly 1.95 billion Won (approx. $1.75 million).
Jin had also bought his own apartment back in March 2018; J-Hope also bought an apartment back in 2016 (in the same unit as Jungkook). He had taken out a loan from Woori Bank and paid it back in full before 2018 ended.
Publicly, there are four BTS members who have purchased their own living space, which prompted some ARMY to believe that the boys might not be sharing the same space anymore.
However, following the reports of Jungkook purchasing his own apartment, Big Hit Entertainment released a vague statement where they explained they couldn’t confirm or deny the news of Jungkook purchasing an apartment but did say that BTS are still living in the dorm together,
“We think it’s better to not to talk about the members’ future living arrangements as it’s a matter of privacy.”
BTS are some of the few known boy groups who continue to share the same space despite their immense success. Usually, idols move out of their dorms by the fifth year on average, that’s when most idols of groups purchase their own living spaces and separate from their group members.
BTS is approaching their 6th year since their debut back in 2013; they’re some of the rare Kpop groups who still haven’t moved out of their dorms despite their huge success.
Some ARMY are slightly taken back by the continuous news of BTS members buying apartments but since Big Hit did confirm that the members are still sharing the same space, the fandom calmed down.
Due to their immense popularity and the income they generate yearly, its only expected that in the future more news of BTS members purchasing their own apartments roam the web.
What do you think of this?
