Celebrities sure love their fancy wheels. Many of them even have entire garages of extravagant rides – and Korean stars are no exception. Fans are always curious to know who drives what, and how much it all costs. Exo’s Chanyeol, former Girls’ Generation member Jessica Jung and G-Dragon are among the many K-stars known to get around in luxury supercars . On the flipside, some A-listers seem to prefer more modest means of travel, like the metro. They even enjoy using it, although their managers are wary because of the risk of being mobbed by fans. So, have you ever bumped into these celebrities while on the subway in Korea? 1. Park Bo-gum Actor Park Bo-gum has gone on record saying that public transport is the one thing that he can never give up, in his interview with The Star magazine in 2016. The Reply 1988 and The Encounter star is widely known to love taking the metro when he’s not on a work-related schedule because he finds it convenient.

Fans, however, would probably be delighted to bump into Park in the metro. 2. G-Dragon G-Dragon has expensive taste and splurges on property, luxury fashion and high-end cars. In fact, he has three prized, limited edition automobiles – a Bentley Continental GT, a Lamborghini Aventador and a Rolls-Royce Phantom. But despite his reputation as a supercar collector, G-Dragon is another Korean star who loves to use the metro. In May 2015, he uploaded a photo of his subway card on Instagram. Later in the day, many metro riders posted photos of him on the metro on social media. Although he covered himself from head to toe, wearing a hat, sunglasses and mask, his distinctive fashion sense made him recognisable to fans riding the subway. 3.
