JANG KEUN SUK'S MOTHER OWES SOUTH KOREA 3 MILLION DOLLARS

Holy smokes.

The court has dismissed Jang Keun Suk's mother's appeal.


On February 20 KST, media outlets reported that the Seoul Central District Court denied actor Jang Keun Suk's mother's appeal to vacate a 3 billion KRW (2.7 million USD) tax evasion fine. The decision was made public during the case's initial trial.


In January 2021, Jang Keun Suk's mother received a two-and-a-half-year suspended prison sentence, a four-year probation period, and a fine. Her company, Tree J Company, was charged with violating the Tax Offense Act, despite the fact that the agency's sole client was her son, Jang Geun Suk. 


The court stated that the act of using a "foreign bank account to receive earnings from a corporate body had to be reported, as such accounts are difficult for the National Tax Service to trace." Despite her mother's plea of innocence, the court found her guilty of tax evasion and dismissed her recent appeal.
