Guessing which boy band dropped this fire on the internet? Yes, it is indeed the world’s largest boy band, BTS. They have been loved, adored, and showered with fandom from all sides. Their latest song, Butter, was on the top 200 charts and the most streamed songs on Spotify for a long time.
Their other famous works include Dope, Boy in Luv, Blood Sweat & Tears, Dynamite, and many more. Who hasn’t been in love with them for their excellent beats and well-coordinated dance? This just shows how much this band has progressed in its eight years of journey.
This does make fans and the Army curious about how much does their favorite band earn? How much are they worth? Who is the richest member and why? The answers are all in this article.
Here is what we know about BTS and their net worth.
How much is the BTS band’s Net Worth?
The BTS band is worth $100 million as of 2022, say multiple reports. It is because of the fame they have gained instantly and how their songs are reaching worldwide. As a band, they are worth so because of the combined contracts, agreements, and endorsements they do as a part of promotions for their music albums and concerts. Their merchandise itself is much sought after and sells well only if the band promotes it.
We also observe that after historical bands like Pink Floyd, The Beatles, and One Direction, only BTS has been able to get the love that crosses the barriers of languages and cuts across boundaries just to pierce right through the heart.
Who is the richest member of BTS?
Well, as a band, BTS can be called rich, but every Army has their own bias or favorite member, and there are multiple factors contributing to it like the skill sets they possess, roles they perform, social media presence, live performance skills and many more. Based on that, their net worth also varies as they get various endorsements and share in the success based on the roles they play, and that is fair as all five fingers cannot be equal. Though all the members fall within the $20 million to $35 million range, let us see who is the richest member of BTS.
Being one of the richest members not just because of the success of his latest solo but his overall skills, J-Hope is an all-rounder in the group. His excellent dance skills have made him the choreographer and coordinator which makes him a pivotal part of the band. His net worth is estimated to be around $34 million.
Rapping has not gone out of fashion in Pop culture and Rap Monster fondly known as RM, gives one of the best raps that make him unique as his part is exclusive and irreplaceable. He has also independently patented around 130 raps to his name and that makes his net worth around $31 million.
Suga is known for his works, and his single has performed really well. Because of this he has endorsed famous brands. Suga writes songs outside of Korea for multiple countries and has 70 works to his name. This makes his net worth around $30 million.
We can say hands down that Jimin has a great sense of fashion. Whether it is his clothes or accessories, they are very well chosen. This is the reason that brands prefer him for endorsements, whether it is perfumes, accessories, or clothes, and his charming face and aura truly do the magic. He is also loved for his voice and the impossible high pitch notes he otherwise performs with ease. This overall fame and international presence of his put him at number four with a net worth of around $27 million.
The youngest and favorite most searched member among international audiences, Jungkook is known for his cover collaborations with singers like Justin Bieber and Charlie Puth. He is multi-talented and has a lot of potential to rise up once he does make his own Mixtape which fans are waiting for. But for now, his net worth stands at around $26 million.
The second youngest member of BTS is loved for his on-screen charm and off-screen friendships. His deep bonding with Jungkook is famous worldwide. But we see that he has a taste for acting and is slowly moving into it. He has already done a few roles in Historical Korean dramas, but we are hoping to see him more in BTS for the perfect blend of happy drama he adds to the band. His net worth stands at $26 million.
Jin is the businessman of the band. It can be so, for he comes from a rich family, being the son of a CEO who owns a Korean company is not easy. His emcee skills are so good that people love having him in live performances. His ability to give presence to BTS worldwide and be their guardian as he is the oldest member puts his net worth at $25 million.
While BTS has many more prospects and line-ups of concerts and performances coming up together and personal developments in the form of singles, we are waiting to see more of our favorite band.
