Kim Jae-joong, a member of Korean pop group JYJ and also one of the OG members of boy band TVXQ has a net worth of… wait for it…12 MILLION DOLLARS.

So if you’re one of those fools that laughs at K-Pop then just keep laughing buddy because they’re laughing too, but in pools and pools of CASH.

Anyway, Jaejoong came under fire yesterday after doing an April Fool’s joke about having coronavirus…which…was a choice- Kim why!

In a now deleted post on instagram, Jaejoong uploaded a photo with the caption (translated) to say “My foolish judgment to live as though it couldn’t happen to me is why I am like this today…I am currently hospitalized.”

He has since edited the caption to apologise.

If you don’t read Korean, here is the caption popped through google translate for you!


“First of all, I sincerely apologise and apologise to those who have been affected by coronavirus 19 because of what I wrote on social media…Judgment that is not right. I know”, he writes in the new caption.

Poor guy!

The joke was in serious bad taste but NO HARM WAS INTENDED RIGHT?

It was actually illegal to make coronavirus April Fools jokes in Thailand and India yesterday.

With penalties of up to 5 years in JAIL if disobeyed!


So lucky Jae-joong is in Korea.
