Celebrity Landlords Cut Rent Costs In Light Of Economic Difficulties Caused By Coronavirus Outbreak




It’s no secret that celebrities own buildings which they then rent out to tenants, but never let it be said that these celebrity landlords are misers.


On March 4, reports surfaced that singer Rain and his wife, actress Kim Tae Hee, as well as Hong Suk Chun and Seo Jang Hoon, were cutting the cost of rent for their tenants this month due to financial hardships caused by the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) outbreak.


Rain reduced the cost of rent in his building in the Cheongdam neighborhood of Seoul’s Gangnam district by 50 percent for the month of March, in hopes to help their tenants through a difficult time. Kim Tae Hee also owns a building in the Yeoksam neighborhood of Gangnam, for which she lowered the rent by 50 percent for March, as well.


Seo Jang Hoon made similar moves to aid his tenants, dropping rent in the three apartment buildings he owns in Seoul’s Mapo district by 10 percent over the next two months. A representative of Seo Jang Hoon stated, “As the number of people affected by COVID-19 rises, the people under [Seo Jang Hoon’s] care have fallen on incredibly difficult times. He decided that he wanted to help even in just this little way, and so he lowered the cost of rent.”


Hong Suk Chun personally announced his decision to lower the cost of rent via his Instagram account. He shared the decision to lower the rent in his building in the Itaewon neighborhood of Seoul’s Yongsan district, saying, “Has everyone been enjoying ‘Itaewon Class’? Right now I’m in Itaewon. I’ve been thinking about how I can help support people. Right now, it’s a good thing that the cost of rent in Itaewon has dropped a lot in recent days.”


He continued, “Because a lot of people are struggling while the outbreak of COVID-19 continues to spread, I’m lowering the cost of rent for the tenants in my Itaewon building. It isn’t a lot during this difficult time, but I hope that it helps give people strength.” He went on to challenge other celebrities to follow in his footsteps. “I hope that the Korean people find strength. Fighting!”

Celebrity landlords reduce rents for corona virus-hit tenants




By Dong Sun-hwa

Numerous celebrities have decided to cut the rent for tenants in buildings they own amid the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

Singer-actor Rain marked down rents by 50 percent this month for his six-story building in Gangnam-gu, Seoul, reports said Wednesday. He recently sent a notice to tenants saying: "I will receive only half of the original rent in March to alleviate your burden stemming from the coronavirus epidemic."

A craft beer bar and a beauty salon are among businesses in the edifice.

"We did not know about his action, as the building is Rain's private property," an official from his agency RAINCOMPANY was quoted as saying.

Business owners here have fallen victim to severe economic hardship in the face of the virus as consumers avoid going out and spending money.

The virus has dealt a particular blow to small business owners. More than 97 percent of them said their sales have plummeted compared with the previous week due to the virus, according to the Korea Federation of Micro Enterprise (KFME)'s Feb. 20 data.

In bid to help, Rain's actress wife Kim Tae-hee halved the rent this month for business owners in her building near Gangnam station. Other celebrities including basketball player-turned-TV personality Seo Jang-hoon, actress Park Eun-hye and actor-cum-TV personality Hong Suk-chun have reduced or stopped rent for the time being.


The movement to curtail or freeze rent temporarily for small business owners and self-employed people began on Feb. 12 in Jeonju, North Jeolla Province. Landlords of the buildings in Jeonju Hanok Village ― a popular tourist attraction containing Korean traditional Hanok houses ― initiated the movement.

As of Thursday afternoon, Korea had 5,766 confirmed coronavirus cases and 35 deaths from the disease.

*** Finally...... I was able to watch his last drama, "Welcome2Life " continuously, which I failed to do so during airing since of lack of time due to so much work in the office. The drama started out with a bang. However, as the story progressed, the plot became too predictable & lost touch on the elements that it had in the beginning. There was no focus on the incidents that occur before the switch. I felt that writers just created the situation where the journey to the parallel world ends when RAIN (Lee Jae Sang) wakes up in his original world & I left wondering what happens next. The story could have gotten better justice if they have shown a little more details on what happens in the parallel universe. The premise was great but as the story evolves, the plot becomes too long that it becomes boring. Not much justice was done to the story of the parallel universe. The writers never really showed on what happened to the criminals in the other world. The message that conveys of how each of our decisions impact our lives for the better or for the worse was interesting, though. :P
