Lee Jong Suk was detained in Jakarta, Indonesia after the local agencies failed to properly report his recent fan meeting’s profits. He uploaded a message to his fans on Instagram, explaining that his staff and he have been detained due to problems with their revenue report.
“Thankfully, I finished my fan meeting well 😊
But all of my staff and I are currently stuck in Jakarta. I think we’ve been detained since yesterday.. The local promoter, Yes24, reported their revenue from the event to the tax office, but they’ve taken the passports of my staff and I – who have nothing to do with the revenue reports.
I hope for the fast solution by Yes24, their agency The Creative Lab, and Yumetomo.
This is my first time experiencing something like this, so I don’t know what to do.. (Mom, I’m coming home late today… 😅”
