M.I.B"s Kangnam continues to interest people with his bank account. He first shockingly revealed on "Entertainment Relay" that he had only 3,422 won (~ $3 USD) in his bank account, but things started to improve as he later revealed he had 300,000 won (~ $280). The latest update shows that he is now doing even better! This comes as no surprise considering he is becoming one of the trendiest variety stars at the moment.
On MBC"s "I Live Alone" on October 31, Kangnam headed to the bank to create a bank book after receiving advice from his aunt, who said he needed to save money to get married.
At the bank, he discovered his new balance, which was a shocking 876,000 won (~ $830)! He stated happily, "That much money came in? What do I do?"
Bank employee Hang Song Yi advised him to deposit just a small amount, such as 100,000 won (~ $95 USD), but he decided to put in 500,000 won (~ $470 USD) instead, saying he would work diligently.
In addition, Kangnam seemed to have gotten more fans! As he got to rest for the first time in a while, he took it easy, snacking on gifts from fans. He said, "Fans came to my house to make sure I had food, giving me chips, ramen, and more. Other idols have a hard time because of sasaengs, but I had no fans who came to my house during the three years [since debut]. I"m happy and grateful because of my fans," suggesting that he didn"t mind the sasaeng fans who came looking for his house to give him food.
