On January 30, Korean press Seoul Ilbo reported that actor Hyun Bin recently closed on a newly-built, luxury villa in the suburbs of Guri — located right outside Seoul.
According to the report, Hyun Bin sealed the deal on this 2500 sq. feet penthouse, which is an exclusive unit that occupies an entire floor of the villa. The penthouse is said to have cost him 4.8 billion KRW ($4,291,475 USD).
The villa, Walkerhill Podoville, is tucked away in Guri’s peaceful “Achiul Village”, beloved by Korean celebrities and artists for its nature-friendly yet close-to-Seoul location. Other well-known residents include JYP Entertainment‘s J. Y. Park and actress Oh Yeon Seo.
In fact, actress Oh Yeon Seo bought and moved in to her lower level unit of the same villa in November 2020 — making her one of Hyun Bin’s closest neighbors.
The report also revealed that Hyun Bin signed the contract in June 2020 and closed on the penthouse early January 2021. By December 2020, however, Hyun Bin had already moved in to the unit.
Following the move-in, fellow Achiul Village residents believed the house to be occupied by the 2021 Dispatch couple — fueling wedding rumors between Hyun Bin and his girlfriend-and-actress Son Ye Jin.
Hyun Bin’s agency, however, immediately responded and denied all wedding rumors.
The house is not for him to live with Son Ye Jin. No other details about the house can be disclosed as it is private information about his residence.
