Lee Jong Suk is currently being detained in Jakarta, Indonesia, with his staff after a fan meeting.
On November 5, the Korean actor uploaded a photo taken at the airport and explained, “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…”
Apparently, the local promoter of his fan meeting, “yes24, had reported lower profits than what they had actually made to the local tax authorities.” Jong Suk continued, “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.”
A source from Jong Suk’s agency confirmed the incident: “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.”
