1. [+2,361, -272] The only legally problematic thing that happened in all of this is that an anti stole his mail and leaked it on the internet. It clearly says on the mail that you're not allowed to open it unless you're the person addressed. How is it normal at all that someone was able to just take it and release his private information like that? Why is that part not included in the article? I looked it up and apparently the anti can face up to three years in jail or a fine of 30 million won.

2. [+787, -127] They sent four registration notices but he forgot all four times.... how does that make sense? And I'm sure they tried to contact him in other ways, too... especially if it reached a point of seizing a BTS member's home?

3. [+443, -61] Hybe never does their job right... sigh

4. [+165, -22] He doesn't even pay his taxes dutifully and yet they're asking for military exemptions ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+200, -60] Wow, this is really disappointing. The agency is taking the fall for this ㅋㅋㅋ wasn't Jimin home because he caught COVID?! And had surgery for his appendix?! ㅋㅋㅋ Weren't they just asking for military exemptions because they bring in a lot of money and pay their taxes?! How about you worry about paying your taxes on time first ㅋㅋㅋ there is not one duty as a citzen of our country that you've upheld ㅡㅡ

6. [+135, -33] What a joke. The rest of us get harassed with calls all the time if we're late on payments even once. And yet he didn't know? If his apartment is 5.5 billion won, how much is his health insurance? And the agency calling it their own mistake? What a joke. People are always meant to change in the face of money.

7. [+120, -20] Go serve in the army ^^

8. [+103, -9] How is it possible that he didn't know until the point where his own house was seized? I'm genuinely curious.

9. [+80, -3] Hybe is so bad at their jobs, they're screwing over their own singer

10. [+77, -1] If you're busy, just set it on auto payments

11. [+80, -8] There must be a Jimin anti in Hybe. How was only Jimin's health insurance payments late? And he wasn't alerted about it at all? No one told him until his own house was seized? ㅋㅋㅋ

12. [+62, -3] So were the other members paying this whole time? Why was only Jimin's defaulted? ㅎ

13. [+58, -0] How many people work in their agency? They're not doing enough for what they're paid

14. [+71, -18] Well, it's not like this is a case of tax evasion or anything. I doubt anyone would default on health insurance payments on purpose ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 

15. [+54, -3] Hybe is the anti

16. [+51, -3] If he had put his payments on auto, they never would've even seized his apartment if it was just a few months late. The fact that it was seized means it must've at least been a year's worth of late payments. Did something happen? I'm not an anti, just curious.

17. [+52, -7] He must've gotten so much mail about it if it reached the point of being seized. It doesn't make sense to me that he didn't know. And if he was overseas, why was his agency so irresponsible with managing his mail?

18. [+45, -1] There's no way he didn't know, you get sent a ton of notices and warnings before it actually gets seized

19. [+45, -5] How many people work in Hybe? How did not one of them manage to complete such a simple task? What a joke. Don't even brag about how much the company is making if you can't even handle these things.

20. [+98, -64] Yes, it was wrong of him to default, but I think there needs to be some clarification for the people who are only reading the title and misunderstanding the situation. This happened in the past and he made his payments as soon as he realized what was happening. The case is closed. I wonder why the news is being broken now?

1. [+583] In the end, it was the agency's mistake

2. [+312] Hybe may be too small to manage a big group like BTS..

3. [+327] I really think he didn't know..

4. [+160] His agency ㅠㅠ how many times have they missed his mail...;;

5. [+212] Hybe, do your job

6. [+636] If Hybe can't even do tasks like this, what are they even doing?

7. [+138] How much could an artist even know about taxes and all that? Hybe's office should've known to just get it handled but instead the media is making it sound as if he purposely didn't pay his taxes on time.

8. [+191] What is the agency doing while their artists are working to death...

9. [+74] Hybe-ya, don't taint your artist's image

10. [+123] How much could the premiums even have been? ㅋㅋ Seizing two pairs of shoes in his home would've probably paid it off and yet they seized the whole apartment ㅋㅋㅋ

11. [+110] Think of how much Jimin makes, I doubt he didn't pay it on purpose

12. [+46] His agency is in the wrong for this. It's fine that he didn't know since he paid it off once he did ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
