Lee Seung Gi was recognized for his contributions to society!
As part of Taxpayers’ Day each year, the National Tax Service carries out an annual tradition of awarding citizens for being exemplary taxpayers. This year, Lee Seung Gi received presidential commendations and was also appointed as an honorary ambassador for the National Tax Service in 2022.
According to the announcement made by the National Tax Service, the reasons cited for why he was chosen as a candidate were due to his contributions to Korea’s cultural and artistic development as well as the Hallyu wave, in addition to his sincere tax payments that contributed to the development of the country. As a result of being named an honorary ambassador, he will carry out various promotional activities over the year to spread the culture of sincere tax payment. The appointment ceremony is currently scheduled to take place at the end of April.
In the past, out of the celebrities that have been selected every year as exemplary tax payers, two have been appointed as ambassadors. In 2020 and 2021, actors Lee Seo Jin and Park Min Young were appointed respectively. They both also received the presidential commendation award.
Lee Seung Gi’s agency, Hook Entertainment, said, “We are glad that Lee Seung Gi received recognition for his exemplary and good-natured influence that he has shown. We are extremely proud especially because despite his busy schedule, Lee Seung Gi, who strives for a better appearance and development, was selected as an ‘exemplary tay payer with presidential citation.’ We will continue to support Lee Seung Gi to the fullest extent so he can spread his good-natured influence, and we ask for your affection and attention towards Lee Seung Gi, who does his best to set an example.”
