Jeon Jungkook, also known as Jungkook, rose to global prominence after debuting as the group’s primary vocalist, lead dancer, sub rapper, center, and youngest member in June 2013. His most recent solo project, a collaboration with Charlie Puth, has undoubtedly increased his wealth and fame. The question is whether he is now wealthier than J-Hope.
Jungkook has reached the age of 25. And his influence as a BTS member and an individual artist is no joke.
Jungkook has been extremely active in his career as a member of BTS since his debut. How wealthy has “Golden Maknae” become after nine years in the entertainment industry?
According to media outlets such as Seoul Space, the 24-year-old BTS member has a projected net worth of $26 million this year. On the other hand, his net worth could reach $28 million. However, this figure does not account for his “Left and Right” success with Charlie Puth.
Given BTS’s worldwide phenomenal success over the years, massive fan base and enormous influence, such a net worth figure is not surprising.
J-Hope was the wealthiest before “Left and Right.” Jungkook finished fifth, behind Suga, RM, and Jimin.
Jungkook, like the rest of the idols, made the majority of his money by promoting with BTS, such as through their hugely successful song releases and merchandising.
Furthermore, due to their global notoriety and brand strength, BTS has one of the highest appearance fees among groups, bringing them substantial earnings from television appearances, endorsement deals, and more.
Jungkook receives an annual base salary of $8 million. According to reports, he owns 68,000 HYBE shares worth approximately $16 million. This means that, excluding other sources of income, his net worth is already $24 million.
Jungkook makes money from his music and BTS tracks, for which he is listed as a producer and writer by the Korean Music Copyright Association (KMCA).
His solo appearances on shows like “Flower Crew,” “Celebrity Bromance,” and “King of Masked Singer” also contributed to his earnings.
Jungkook of South Korean boy band BTS and Charlie Puth recently collaborated on the smash hit Left and Right.
“Left and Right” debuted on June 24, 2022, and has since set numerous records.
The song “Left and Right” by BTS’s youngest member, Jungkook, surpassed 100 million streams on the music streaming platform Spotify on July 19.
Jungkook, real name Jeon Jung-hoon, is the first Korean soloist to have 100 million Spotify streams.
The summer hit “Left and Right” surpassed 100 million YouTube views on July 13, 2022.
It doesn’t really matter if he’s the richest of the BTS members. They are all extremely wealthy because they are all individually talented.
