Original source: Mwave

With reports saying that Jang Keun Suk paid over 10 billion won in penalty tax to the National Tax Service, Jang Keun Suk′s agency released an official statement.

On January 14, Jang Keun Suk′s agency, Tree J Company released an official statement, saying, “The reports about tax evasion and tax investigations continue to come out, but we want to correctly state that as previously reported, it is not a special tax investigation regarding Jang Keun Suk′s foreign income tax, but rather a periodic tax investigation for Jang Keun Suk′s agency, Tree J Company.”

“The company sincerely participated in the investigation, and in the investigation process of the involved authorities, an error, made by the agency′s accounting firm, was found and the tax return was amended and a penalty payment was paid.”

“Tree J Company adjusted to the substantive and procedural parts and clearly carried out the duty to pay, and the involved authorities acknowledged that it wasn′t done on purpose and did not press charges, meaning that no examination of the prosecution took place.”

“Through the process of many reports, several assumed that Jang Keun Suk was under the accusation of tax evasion and paid an enormous amount in penalty fee, and as that was reported as the truth, the public accepted it as the truth, causing a huge damage to the actor′s image,” said Tree J Company. “Regarding this, we feel a deep sense of regret towards him.”

“This issue was created due to an error made by the company′s accounting firm and completely unrelated with Jang Keun Suk. The tax report has been corrected and the penalty was paid. We′d like to state once more that Jang Keun Suk has diligently paid his taxes.”

“With this issue, we will be more careful to make sure that not even a little error occurs in our financial issues,” stated Tree J Company. “We sincerely express our apologies to Jang Keun Suk, who is in our company, as well as to the fans and the public. We will make sure that Jang Keun Suk′s image will not be tarnished due to the company′s mistake.”

In an ending note, the company wrote, “We will work harder to show a better image. We want to apologize to our actor once more. We hope that there will be no more articles of speculation that will tarnish Jang Keun Suk′s name.”

  1. Sad that the story is erroneous and tarnishes his name, but this will make him a stronger person. I hope that they hire a ‘knowledgeable accounting firm’ like pricewaterhouse coopers or deloitte. The payment is expensive but their calculation is correct. Both are very reliable. Other good ones are kpmg and Ernst and young. Or they can hire SGV from the Philippines.

  2. Media can say anything they want to say because they control the pen.
    I hope that his agency will not hire those ‘fly-by-night’ accounting firms. They should hire firms with international exposure and is familiar with international audit standards and taxation procedures.

    I remain a JKS fan regardless.,

  3. I thought this issue was banished last year as i was read it yesterday, i didn’t recognize that it was an issue again,hope everything goes well and it will not affect that much to our dear Prince.

  4. I hope they will stop writing about this now. The company have paid it, everything is settled. It´s not Sukkies fault anyway. He is an artist. He thinks about his work, not about taxes. Thats why he has an account manager, and several other managers. I hope that everyone understand that. He was probably worried a lot because of this.

  5. Why the producer drop out him, what’s his problem. He is editing all his hard work in such harsh environment. .why? We are with you JKS. bad times will pass very soon. Praying for you
