Daesung required to pay 1.2 billion KRW (approximately $1.025 million) in taxes on controversial building

AKP STAFF

Big Bang's Daesung will have to pay more than 1.2 billion KRW (~1.025 million USD) worth in taxes due to the operation of illegal adult businesses without a license. 

Channel A News reported that the tax authorities sent a bill to Daesung to pay the tax of 1.2 billion KRW. This includes the acquisition tax, property tax, and additional local tax which adds up to about 1.2 billion KRW. This tax was levied because the tax authority discovered that Daesung was running unlicensed adult businesses when they had previously believed there were normal businesses in the building.

The popular star was previously under controversy after it was revealed that illegal activities were happening in his building, although Daesung has stated that he had no knowledge of the businesses. Investigations are also being conducted on the entertainment venues in the building under suspicion of individual consumption tax evasion by the Seoul Regional Tax Service.

Channel A also reported that Daesung borrowed 5 billion KRW (~4.27 million USD) from a loan company and used the building as collateral. When Daesung originally purchased the building in 2017, he purchased it for 31 Billion KRW ($26.5 million) with a loan from the bank. It is believed Daesung took out the 5 billion KRW loan to pay back the original 2017 loan.

What do you think of this situation?

Daesung previously released a statement saying he had no knowledge of these illegal businesses, and the taxation authority stated that the imposition of additional taxes is not related to this.

I think it's fair, since the business was paying the rent with illegal money, Daesung needs to assume the expenses. But this article is kinda ill intended, he wasn't running the adult business, he was just the landlord and was receiving the payments indirectly without knowing what was going on... He has a responsibility to pay back the illegal money since was his mistake, but if a guy produces drugs or makes porn in his rented apartments, how the fuck would he know? He was in the military on top of all that, the guy he let responsible for the building should be answering for this.
