Veteran singer Insooni’s representatives have responded to recent accusations of tax evasion.
On February 10, singer Choi Sung Soo’s wife Park Young Mi submitted a charge accusing Insooni of tax evasion to the tune of 5 billion won (approximately $4 million) to the Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office.
“From June 22, 2005 to November 23, 2007, Insooni evaded taxes by using a borrowed-name bank account,” Ms. Park said. “She also made omissions during an inquiry in 2008 by the Seoul Regional National Tax Service.” Ms. Park also claimed that Insooni had reported a lower income than she actually received and was given a surcharge of 800 million won (about $672,000).
Insooni’s side responded, “We have not yet received the formal complaint. We do not recognize any part of Ms. Park’s statement nor have we ever evaded taxes.”
