The fact that these stars are rich enough to buy foreign cars but still cannot drive since they haven’t obtained a driver’s license surprised netizens.
In Korea, you can obtain a driver’s license once you are over 18. That’s why many third-year high school students register for academies to get a driver’s license after taking the College Scholastic Ability Test.
However, some celebrities still haven’t had a driver’s license even though they already became adults a long time ago.
Below are 6 stars who are known to be rich with many hit songs and can afford expensive foreign cars, but cannot drive.
1. Young Tak
Trot singer Young Tak recently appeared on Channel A’s “Nowadays Men’s Life Groom Class” and began his challenge to get a driver’s license.
Young Tak made a huge profit with the hit song “Jjiniya” but has not yet obtained a driver’s license.
He is currently participating in various broadcasts.
IU once said she got a driver’s license to prank her fans on April Fool’s Day in 2020. In fact, the female singer has not yet obtained a driver’s license.
Last year, IU surprised everyone as she revealed that she couldn’t distinguish the difference between driver’s license type 1 and type 2 at the filming site for “strawberry moon” music video.
IU’s upcoming movie “Broker” is set to be released on June 8th.
3. Seventeen’s Woozi
“Copyrights wealthy man” Woozi, who has more than 100 copyrighted songs, is also one of the stars who don’t have a driver’s license.
