According to reports, the Office of National Tax Administration began investigating Dok2 and 122 other high-income earners for tax evasion on October 16. Insiders are saying the rapper's investigation will continue until early November.
It's said that due to Dok2's well-known extravagant lifestyle, a few citizens requested a tax investigation into the rapper on the official petition website of the government executive office Blue House last year. The rapper was also previously revealed to earn 2 billion Won ($1,716,489 USD) a year.
Many netizens are commenting on the issue, stating:
"I knew it since he started bragging about money all the time."
"Does anyone know one Dok2 hit song?"
"What does he make money with? I've never listened to his songs."
"I don't know any Dok2 songs..."
"He's smart and has been living in a hotel to not pay taxes. Looking at the overall picture, I don't think he's going to get away with it."
"I really wonder how he makes his money..."
