Jang Geun Suk's label states the actor's mother acted one-sidedly, Jang Geun Suk had no involvement in tax evasion


On April 2, a representative from Jang Geun Suk's side released an official statement of rebuttal after earlier reports, which revealed that Jang Geun Suk's mother is currently facing trial for evading over 1 billion KRW (~ 800,000 USD) in taxes.

Jang Geun Suk's side began, "We would like to first apologize and express our deep feelings of regret for the current news involving Jang Geun Suk's mother. More than anyone, Jang Geun Suk himself feels sincerely apologetic for causing concerns while he is away, carrying out his mandatory service as a public service worker." 

The statement continued, "TreeJ Company is a company managed by Jang Geun Suk's mother as the executive CEO, and she is fully in charge of the agency's management including the use of monetary funds. Jang Geun Suk, on the other hand, has only focussed on his individual activities, and his mother has never confided in him regarding the company's monetary transactions."

Finally, Jang Geun Suk's side clarified, "The current tax evasion case is a result of Jang Geun Suk's mother taking one-sided actions. Jang Geun Suk himself has diligently paid his taxes throughout his career, and has never been involved in his agency's taxes; as a result, we notify that all responsibility falls solely with Jang Geun Suk's mother alone." 

Jang Geun Suk's side then once again apologized to the public, with, "We would like to sincerely apologize, for this matter involves Jang Geun Suk's family and a one-man agency dedicated to Jang Geun Suk's activities."

I always think it's insane to blame family members for the bad actions of their relatives.

Remember, we don't get to choose who we are related to and every person has free will. No one forced this woman to take these actions and evade her responsibility to her fellow citizens and her country by selfishly hoarding her money rather than responsibly paying her taxes.

Also it is a very rare child who can control their parents behavior or their finances, not that I know anyone who is actually interested in their parents finances (except maybe for those who care for an elderly or otherwise incapable parent which is not the case here).

I am glad to see that for once the netizens of the world are not overreacting and blindly accusing an innocent person of wrongdoing because of some tangential relation to someone else's wrongdoing.
