1. [+3,253, -36] Shouldn’t something like this be fixed in the first place ??? These stars have made a lot of money in different ways and have gone on long ago.
2. [+2,936, -53] Why is Kim Tae Hee using her genius mind for things like this? The program “PD Note” reported on Kim Tae Hee using a paper company to avoid 1 billion tax because the ghost company didn’t pay the tax.
3. [+2,450, -45] Yeah, I used to be their fan and now bye bye. How can you do this when your career is built on fan love?
4. [+266, -4] I’m not surprised by other names, but Kim Tae Hee is just … She PR for herself with the image of “a great host” but actually cut it billions of tax money in the name of the ghost company. We all have to pay taxes and become fools.
