Lee Seung Gi Leaves Agency After 17 Years + To Reportedly Establish One-Man Agency With His Father
Lee Seung Gi is officially parting ways with Hook Entertainment.
The actor debuted in June 2004 and has been with Hook Entertainment for 17 years. On May 24, the agency announced that he would be leaving the agency to establish his own company.
The official statement reads as follows:
Hello, this is Hook Entertainment.
Our exclusive contract with Lee Seung Gi will be terminated on May 31.
Although we’ve been together for a long time even before his debut with a relationship based on a trust, he recently decided to establish a new one-man agency and promote independently, so we agreed to maintain a cooperative relationship in the future.
We sincerely thank our partner Lee Seung Gi for staying with us for a long time as he played an active role as one of Korea’s top artists.
We would also like to express our sincere gratitude to the fans for showing their love and support for Lee Seung Gi, and we ask you to continue to show him unlimited support in the future.
We will do our best to support Lee Seung Gi and cheer him on as he takes on more challenges as an independent artist.
On the same day, Sports Chosun reported that Lee Seung Gi will be setting up a one-man agency with his father, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
