He then sold it to the idol-actor in July 2020 for 4.9 billion won (approximately 4.16 million USD). This means that Chairman Choi gained a profit of 1.1 billion won.
It is said that Cha Eunwoo received the registration of transfer of ownership from the court on Sept. 7 of last year, two months after the sale contract was signed.
