In May of last year, the Korean idol purchased a high-end condominium at Nine One Hannam in Seoul. It cost over 5.9 billion South Korean Won (around $4.7 million) to produce.
Jimin got four consecutive notices of the seizure by registered mail during the period his flat was confiscated, according to the media site.
The seizure was lifted on April 22nd after the 26-year-old artist paid all of his past-due health insurance charges.
Jimin’s management company, Big Hit Music, has issued an official statement in response to the controversy. They accepted responsibility for the ordeal and said that it was the result of a mistake on their part.

Jimin, according to the statement, was unaware of the situation. The mails were also not transmitted to him because of a company fault.
Jimin’s itinerary was jam-packed, with the majority of his activities taking place in other countries. As a result, his letters were ignored by the agency, but the seized mail was not delivered to him.
