HYBE Chairman Bang Si Hyuk, currently embroiled in a dispute with ADOR’s Min Hee Jin, has seen nearly 550 billion KRW (approx. 402 million USD) wiped from his net worth over the past four months.

According to the Korea CXO Research Institute’s analysis on May 9th, 30 major individual shareholders in Korea’s cultural and content-related stocks had a combined total stock value of 3.84 trillion KRW (approx. 2.8 billion USD). Of this, Chairman Bang Si Hyuk holds 68.4%, or 2.63 trillion KRW, making him the largest shareholder in Korea’s cultural and content sector. He currently owns 13,151,394 HYBE shares.

At the start of this year, Bang’s stock holdings were valued at 3.176 trillion KRW. However, over the past four months, they’ve declined by 545.7 billion KRW (17.2%), dropping to the 2 trillion KRW range. The CXO Research Institute noted, “HYBE’s stock performance was already declining even before the publicized conflict between HYBE and ADOR CEO Min Hee Jin.”

All seven BTS members also hold HYBE stock valued at over 10 billion KRW (approx. 7.3 million USD) each. V, Suga, Jimin, and Jungkook lead the pack with 13.6 billion KRW each, followed by J-Hope (12.5 billion KRW), RM (11.6 billion KRW), and Jin (10.4 billion KRW).

In the cultural and content stock sector, the second-richest individual shareholder is JYP Entertainment CCO Park Jin Young (365.7 billion KRW), followed by YG Entertainment’s largest shareholder Yang Hyun Suk (154 billion KRW).
