Korean star Song Joong Ki to ‘give up’ part of property so that neighbours can have wider road

KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 19): South Korean heart throb actor Song Joong Ki (pictured) has offered to give up 1,500 sq ft of his 9,000 sq ft Itaewon home when neighbours complained that the road between their homes were too narrow, Singapore daily Today reported recently.

Reports stated that neighbours had already lodged a complaint against Song for repaving a public road bordering his home.

The actor therefore decided to give up 1,500 sq ft of his 9,000 sq ft property to allow the authorities to widen the roads.

Today revealed that the move will “reduce his property by a sizeable amount — 16.7%, to be exact”.

Song bought the home in Itaewon 2020 for an estimated price of KRW10 billion (RM36.36 million).

Song is one of South Korea’s top actors having starred in dramas such as The Innocent Man (2012), Descendants of the Sun (2016) and Arthdal Chronicles (2019) and films such as The Battleship Island (2017) and Space Sweepers (2021).

His latest drama Vincenzo (2021) can be screened via Netflix.
