Industry sources say Hwang purchased the building for 6.25 billion won ($4.6 million) in March 2018 and sold it for 11 billion won ($8.1 million) in October 2021. The building has a building area of 116㎡, a total floor area of 606㎡, and is 5 floors above ground and 1 floor below ground. Located in a prime Gangnam station area just 300 meters from Apgujeong Station on Line 3, the land itself is valued at a staggering 94.52 million won ($69,900) per square meter.
