Lee Byung Hun denies tax evasion charges in Soompi
Lee Byung Hun has denied allegations against him.
Recently, the media revealed that Lee Byung Hun and his agency BH Entertainment were the target of a tax irregularity audit by the National Tax Service in September 2022.
Lee Byung Hun and BH Entertainment were reportedly fined several hundred million won (hundreds of thousands of dollars) in additional taxes.
A media outlet then explained that Lee Byung Hun bought a building before reselling it for 10 billion won in 2021, implying that he hid that information from taxes.
Then, on February 28, BH Entertainment stated: “Actor Lee Byung Hun has not faced a single shameful tax incident in the last 30 years. »
The agency then clarified: “The additional fees charged were due to differences in the timing of filing a promotional guarantee and the process of accounting for the unification of bonuses paid to all employees with the actor’s personal expenses, which were treated as company expenses. »
