BoA may be facing 50 million KRW (approximately 48,000 USD) in fines for illegally developing land.
BoA and her father bought 4600㎡ of land in Namyangju back in February 2004 and in August 2009. In 2005, they fixed the 66㎡ management office already on the land and converted the 99㎡ farming storage into houses, and BoA”s father has been living on the land since 7-8 years ago.
