Lee Jong Suk is currently being detained in Jakarta, Indonesia, with his staff after staging his Crank Up Fanmeeting Tour at Kasablanka Hall last Saturday, November 3.

Kasalukuyang naka-detain ang South Korean actor Lee Jong Suk at ang staff nito sa airport sa Jakarta, Indonesia.

Na-detain ang grupo nina Jong Suk matapos ang Crank Up Fanmeeting Tour ng aktor na ginanap sa Kasablanka Hall noong November 3.

Sa Isang Instagram post ngayong araw, November 5, sinabi ni Jong Suk na may kinahaharap na problema ang local promoter ng kanyang fanmeeting sa tax authorities ng Indonesia kaya hindi sila pinayagang makaalis ng bansa.

Ang buong post nito, na trinanslate ng Soompi.com: "I was able to end the fan meeting with a thankful heart. But all of my staff and I are stuck in Jakarta. I think we’ve been detained since yesterday…

"The promoter [for the fan meeting] in Jakarta, yes24, had reported lower profits from the fan meeting than what they had actually made to the local tax authorities.

"Though my staff and I have no involvement in this, they took our passports and have not returned them.

"I hope that yes24, and their agencies The Cre8tive Lab and Yumetomo resolve things quickly.”

"I’ve never been in this kind of situation so I don’t know what to do… (Mom, I’m coming home late today…)"

Sa ngayon, binura na ni Jong Suk ang kanyang post sa Instagram ngunit ilang fans na ang nakapag-repost nito.

Kinumpirma naman ng isang source mula sa talent agency ni Jong Suk na A-Man Project sa news website na Sports Korea ang ibinahagi ng 29-year-old actor sa Instagram.

Ang buong pahayag nito, na trinanslate din ng Soompi.com: "They were originally supposed to leave Jakarta on November 4.


"However, a problem arose between the local yes24 branch and the Indonesian authorities.

"Because [yes24] reported that less tickets were sold than actually were, it became a problem. We believe that the passports were confiscated from the person in charge of them. Today, we are working hard to resolve the problem in Jakarta.

"Lee Jong Suk is currently in Jakarta. We are in the middle of adjusting his schedule as there are issues with his immediate drama filming as well other schedules."

Kilala si Lee Jong Suk sa mga ginampanan nitong roles sa mga sikat na Korean drama series; kabilang ang Pinocchio, W, School 2013, at While You Were Sleeping.

Sa November 18 naman gaganapin sa Araneta Coliseum ang kauna-unahang fanmeeting nito Pilipinas.
