The gift — 478,695 common shares of BTS’ management agency Hybe that were evenly distributed to the seven members — is now valued at the domestic stock market at 149.8 billion won, as Hybe shares notched an all-time high for five straight trading days until Friday.

Hybe stocks’ closing price came to 313,000 won apiece Friday, up 5.4 percent on a single trading day. Hybe’s market cap reached 11.1 trillion won, becoming the 38th-largest stock to be trading on the Korea Exchange’s main board Kospi. The shares were on a winning streak for seven consecutive trading days, with their price rising nearly 20 percent during the period.

The latest upsurge in stock price comes as BTS’ new single “Butter,” released on May 21, took the top spot of Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart for three consecutive weeks.

Hybe founder and CEO Bang Si-hyuk gave the stocks to its prized boy band a month before the company went public. Hybe, then known as Big Hit Entertainment, said the gift was a token of the long-term partnership between the company and the artists.

Among those under the age of 30 in Korea, all seven members ranked 43rd in a list of the richest people by stocks owned, according to an estimate by market tracker FnGuide.
