KeyEast Entertainment has responded to reports of Kim Soo Hyun leaving the agency and establishing a one-man agency.
On December 11, Newsen reported that Kim Soo Hyun will be leaving KeyEast Entertainment after his exclusive contract with the agency expires at the end of December. He has reportedly decided to set up a one-man agency with his cousin, director Lee Sa Rang, who has worked on the film “Real.” Kim Soo Hyun’s close relationship with his cousin had been an important factor in his decision to star in the film, and the director has also played a large role in Kim Soo Hyun’s decision to set up a one-man agency. According to industry sources, tvN’s “Psycho But That’s Okay” will be the actor’s first project after leaving KeyEast.
In response to the reports, a source from KeyEast stated to Newsen, “We are in discussion with Kim Soo Hyun about renewing. We have not been informed about [Kim Soo Hyun] setting up a one-man agency.”
Kim Soo Hyun has been with KeyEast Entertainment for 12 years since his debut. Reports of his departure from the agency had also surfaced in July after his military discharge.
