Korean actor Lee Jong Suk's agency mulls taking legal action against promoter of his fanmeeting in Jakarta.

Nakabalik na ng South Korea ang sikat na Korean actor na si Lee Jong Suk matapos silang ma-detain ng kanyang staff sa airport sa Jakarta, Indonesia.

Nagtungo sa Indonesia si Jong Suk para sa kanyang Crank Up fan meeting tour na ginanap sa Kasablanka Hall sa Jakarta noong November 3, Sabado.

Ngunit hindi sila pinayagang makaalis ng Indonesia at kinumpiska ang kanilang passports dahil may kinahaharap palang problema ang local promoter ng kanyang fan meeting sa tax authorities.

Dahil dito, ilang araw na na-stranded si Jong Suk at kanyang mga kasama sa kalapit na hotel sa airport.

Ngunit kagabi, November 5, ay pinayagan na silang makaalis ng Indonesia at bumalik sa South Korea.

Ngayong Martes, November 6, naglabas ng official statement ang agency na kinabibilangan ni Jong Suk, ang A-Man Project, upang ipaalam ang kalagayan ng aktor.

Ito ang kabuuang statement na isinalin sa Ingles ng soompi.com:

“Hello. This is A-Man Project.


"We caused concern to a lot of people because actor Lee Jong Suk’s departure was delayed immediately after the Indonesian fan meeting due to the agencies and local promoter yes24’s way of handling business.

"This was our first time experiencing something like this, so we were very startled.

"Instead of thinking about himself, the actor was very concerned that this may affect his drama’s filming schedule.

"Fortunately, he was able to depart thanks to the help of the Indonesian embassy and he is currently on a flight on his way home.

“We’re currently continuing to look into the cause of this incident, but the agencies and yes24’s explanations keep changing.

"First, we heard that the local representative of yes24 took the actor and staff’s passports without any reason and disappeared.

"A few hours later, the local representative was detained by Indonesian tax authorities because they did not pay taxes.


"Their explanation changed and they said that the passports of the actor and staff in the local representative’s possession were taken away during this process.

"A couple of hours later, a local media outlet also reported that yes24 had not applied for a short-term work permit and that a visa issue also occurred because of this.

"Each and every single thing is so unbelievable that we don’t know what other explanations and excuses they’ll come up with next.

“We plan to respond with firm legal action against the agencies and local promoter who caused this incident through law firm Yulchon (lawyer-in-charge Ahn Jung Hye) and all countermeasures hereafter will be conducted through the law firm.

"We will only embrace the love and support shown by the local fans.

"We apologize once again to the drama production company, all of the staff members, and to the public for causing concern. 


"We, the agency and [Lee Jong Suk] will repay the interest and love all of you have shown the actor through more sincere promotions."
