Single’s Inferno‘s Shin Seul Ki has an elite personal background. During Season 1 of the show, it was revealed that Seul Ki was attending Seoul National University‘s piano department. The school is known as one of the top ones in the nation. Her family background, however, is where things get interesting.
Seul Ki’s father is one of South Korea’s top plastic surgeons: the founder and head surgeon at BIO Plastic Surgery. Koreans name him one of the top-earning surgeons due to his developments in botox brands. Fans thought that this might be why she was not fazed or impressed by contestant Shin Dong Woo‘s career as a plastic surgeon.
Seul Ki’s family also owns a 20-story building in Sinsa-dong, an affluent neighborhood in Seoul. That’s a lot of bank in rent. The building itself is estimated to be worth around ₩100 billion KRW (about $ 78.2 million USD).
She also lives in a luxury apartment called Tower Palace. From her own Instagram stories of the view, fans speculate that she lives in the penthouse or one of the top floors. It is estimated to cost between 7-9 million USD.
To date, Seul Ki is still one of the richest contestants to ever appear on Single’s Inferno!
