Yoo Ah In’s 8-billion-won house in Itaewon-dong, fail to sell for 2 years…Why?
Actor Yoo Ah In (real name Uhm Hong Sik) is having trouble selling real estate. It was easy to buy, but it seems difficult to sell.
According to Star News on May 12th, it has been more than 2 years since Yoo Ah In‘s house in Itaewon-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul, which is the address on his resident registration, was put up for sale, but has not yet been sold.
The owner of Yoo Ah In’s Itaewon-dong house has been reportedly listed as “Yoo Company Limited” since 2016. “Yoo Company Limited” is a company with Yoo Ah In as an executive director, and its main business according to corporate registration is management and public relations. The head office of “Yoo Company Limited” is a room in Suseong Dongil Highvill Lake City, Sang-dong, Suseong-gu, Daegu. The owner of this place is also Yoo Ah In.
Yoo Ah In’s Itaewon-dong house was revealed twice through entertainment shows and news. It attracted attention with its luxurious interior structure when Yoo Ah In appeared on MBC’s “I Live Alone” in June 2020. As it is a high-end detached house, it consists of one basement floor and three ground floors. It is known that Yoo Ah In paid 5.8 billion won at the time of purchase in 2016.
About three years later, in March 2023, the Itaewon-dong house was once again revealed to the world. The police started a search and seizure after Yoo Ah In was suspected of using drugs. At that time, the police sent investigators to Yoo Ah In’s two houses in Itaewon-dong and Hannam-dong to secure relevant evidence.
Currently, Yoo Ah In does not live in the Itaewon-dong house. Yoo Ah In moved to Hannam-dong after the broadcast of “I Live Alone”, and his Itaewon-dong house was put up for sale.
According to the real estate industry, the market price of Yoo Ah In’s Itaewon-dong house (as of June 2021) is about 8 billion won. However, since it is the market price 2 years ago, it is expected to easily exceed 8 billion won as of 2023.
In particular, the Itaewon-dong house seems to have had a greater impact on the rise in real estate prices with the image of “Yoo Ah In’s house”. However, a new owner has not yet appeared at this house.
