It is common knowledge among K-pop fans that IU went through a total rags-to-riches story. IU grew up in poverty after her family was scammed, leading her to pursue her dream of being a singer to help provide for her family. After going through different obstacles, IU is now one of the richest celebrities in South Korea.

Her wealthy status was cemented after fans noticed what kind of credit card IU owns.

It was revealed that the card she used was a premium card issued by a South Korean bank exclusively to customers with significant assets. This caught the attention of netizens, as the card IU used is a premium card not accessible to everyone.

The card that IU owns is called the “TWO CHAIRS” card, introduced by Woori Card in November 2023. It is exclusively available to the highest level (black and gold) customers of Two Chairs, Woori Finance’s VIP asset management service.

To qualify as a black or gold customer, one must maintain an average semi-annual balance (bank account deposit) of more than 5 billion won and 3 billion won, respectively.

According to Woori Card, customers with the “TWO CHAIRS” card can earn 2% of their spending at all domestic and overseas affiliated stores without any performance conditions or accumulation limits for the previous month. They can also receive an additional 1% for the amount spent exceeding 100 million won per year.

Additionally, the card offers benefits such as points equivalent to 2.5 million won in annual membership fees, department store gift certificates, hotel dining gift certificates, access to luxury airport lounges worldwide (including the domestic Martina Gold Lounge) up to eight times a month (with up to three accompanying people), and discounts at restaurants and bakeries in domestic luxury hotels.

The annual fee for the card is, reportedly, around 2.5 million won.

By owning such a credit card, IU has accidentally flexed her “young and rich” status!
