Berry Good‘s Johyun shocked netizens when she revealed her investment portfolio.
On the June 19 episode of KBS2 Capitalist School (literal translation), Berry Good’s Johyun and BTOB‘s Eunkwang guest-starred.
BTOB’s Eunkwang explained that he got into crypto during its peak and has lost 50% of his initial investment. The idol stated that before going into the army, he opened up a restaurant out of fear for his future. However the restaurant didn’t work out as planned and has since closed. The idol explained that he now only runs a cafe in Singapore.
Singer Johyun also stated she had lost a lot of money due to investing in crypto.
My mother gave up on me. I invested in Dogecoin. I was so into Dogecoin that I used it as my profile picture, and everyone called me the ‘Princess of Doge.’ I invested ₩10.0 million KRW (about $7,740 USD) and have lost 70% of it.
After the episode, the idol uploaded a picture of her Dogecoin investment to her Instagram story and stated she would do better in the future.
That’s right! I am! The person who loved Doge so much! And still do! But I also suffered. -72 percent, my heart hurts, but… From now on, I’ll invest safely! There are various sectors! I will show you that I am improving! (sic)
