J Hope is the richest member of BTS. This seems like a surprising fact to many people, as he once revealed that he plans to quit the K-pop act early to pursue a solo dance career.
He never left, however, after his co-members persuaded him. All of this reportedly happened before the group officially debuted under Big Hit Entertainment.
Years later, he, alongside his bandmates, seemed to have made the right choice. The seven-member act is now said to be the most successful and wealthiest K-pop group in the world.

J-Hope has the highest net worth among BTS members
As the richest K-pop group, its members are undoubtedly among the richest idols in the South Korean entertainment world. Of the seven, however, J-Hope has the highest net worth figure with his whopping $26 million fortune, according to South China Morning Post.
The K-pop idol has amassed his wealth primarily through the group’s musical productions, touring, and other global activities and engagements. Along with these things, he also has other sources of income on his own.
Similar to other BTS members, he got significant amounts of endorsements and advertisements. Moreover, he already ventured out of the group a few years ago, which allowed him to produce his own music and collaborate with other artists around the world.

A “smart” real estate investor: report
Outside of the music space, J-Hope also makes money from his assets and investments. Reports claimed he had an impressive real estate portfolio.
Avid fans will recall that he once profited around ₩1 billion or over $800,000 from a property he purchased. Koreaboo said the BTS rapper made the real estate purchase in 2016.

Moreover, the BTS member seems to only spend his fortune on investments and charities.
