Some idols didn't have to work a day in their lives. Why? Because their families are ridiculously rich.

Here are 7 idols from wealthy backgrounds ($$):

1. Tzuyu (TWICE)

Tzuyu’s parents were self made entrepreneurs who own a chain of dermatology clinics in southern Taiwan. Her mum has built two coffee shops, a place where TWICE fans often hang. (She must have made the coffee shops to feel like a superstar haha)

2. Umji (GFREND)

Umji’s dad is CEO of the famous Moa Dentist Group. They have over 30 practices across South Korea. (No wonder her teeth are so clean!)

3. Siwon (Super Junior)

Siwon’s dad become CEO for the famous company Boryung Medience in 2011. Siwon also has multiple houses under his name in Seoul, his members would often joke he could buy the television stations they performed for.

4. Nichkhun (2PM)

Nichkhun is also known as the Prince of Thailand. He attended Wanganui Collegiate School in New Zealand, where one year of schooling costs roughly $54,500AUD a year.  His father and mother are CEOs of a trading and pharmaceutical company respectively.

5. Hyungsik (ZE:A)

Hyungsik’s dad works in upper management for Mercedes Benz. Band member Kwanghee once said that Hyunsik had a lot of money in his bank account before they debuted.  

6. Mark (GOT7)
