Rapper Dok2 was named among the delinquent taxpayers with 300 million won ($230,000) worth of taxes overdue for over a year, according to the National Tax Service Thursday.

The National Tax Service unveiled a list of 6,940 taxpayers with overdue taxes worth at least 200 million won for more than a year on its website on Thursday.

Of the 6,940, 4,423 were individuals and 2,517 companies.

Rapper Dok2 and Jeon Hye-kyung, the mother of actor Jang Geun-suk and CEO of Tree J Company, were both on the list.

Dok2 was named for not paying 300 million won worth of income tax for over a year.

The rapper was also previously sued by a Los Angles jewelry dealership for not paying the full amount for rings and necklaces he purchased. The Korean court ordered Dok2 to pay the dealership $35,000.

Jeon has been charged for evading taxes of over 180 million won in foreign bank accounts. She has been sentenced to 2 years and 6 months in prison with 4 years of probation and a fine of 3 billion won.

The total outstanding taxes of all named taxpayers amounts to 4.4 trillion won.
