A source revealed that it was decided by Jang's agency, Tree J Entertainment, and producers of the variety show.The actor was accused of allegedly underreporting his gross income in China, an offense which would mean that he has to pay millions of dollars in fines if proven true.A year after the issue, Jang says he is ready to return and begin anew life."When the news broke, I was in Japan," he told Yonhap News Agency Monday. "You might not believe me, but I hadn't known anything about it."He went on, "I was confused and upset by people's reaction. I was labeled a tax evader overnight. I had my phone off for three weeks and stayed away from my acquaintances. Even in Japan, I stayed in the mountains."28-year-old Jang added that he wants to be identified as a Korean actor once more."I'm going to work really hard in South Korea this year.
