Lee Min Ho denies tax evasion charges in Soompi
Lee Min Ho’s agency spoke up.
On February 2, a media outlet reported that the Investigation Department of the IRS opened an irregularity investigation against Lee Min Ho and his agency MYM Entertainment in September 2020.
According to the media, they would have been fined several hundred million won (several hundred thousand euros).
Following this, MYM Entertainment released an official statement to deny any allegations of tax evasion and announced:
” Good morning. This is MYM Entertainment.
We would like to make this announcement to correct stories related to our agency and our agency’s artist.
The agency and actor Lee Min Ho paid their taxes well, and there was never a single unsavory incident.
The current situation is a problem that has arisen due to a different interpretation as to whether the issue of “compensation for damage caused by the unlawful use of image rights” was subject to taxation or not, and an additional tax was found to be an accounting error in the Company expense reporting process. In this regard, we have duly paid.
