Actor Jang Geun Suk’s mother has been put on trial for allegedly evading billions of Won in taxes.
On April 1, the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ office indicted Jang Geun Suk’s mother, who’s only identified by her maiden name Jeon with no jail time on the charges of evading taxes and violating the ‘Act on the Additive Punishment of Specific Economic Crimes’ on March 30 KST. According to reports, the National Tax Service filed a complaint against Jeon after conducting a search and tracking of her accounts.
Jeon is not only Jang Geun Suk’s mother, but she’s also the head of the TreeJ Company, which is his label. She stands accused of evading around 1 billion Won ($811,748.20 USD) in corporate taxes by withdrawing 5.3 billion Won ($4,302,332.19 USD) in sales from Japan through an account opened in Hong Kong in 2012.
