Recently, large entertainment companies are said to be obsessed with finding all-rounded child actors. With child stars like Kim So Hyun, Kim Yoo Jung, Jin Ji Hee and Yeo Jin Gu coming up quickly in succession, more agencies want to catch and train talented child actors early. An entertainment insider hinted, “In the past, contracts arose out of memorable roles in movies or dramas, but recently, there are lots of instances where contracts are signed really early on.

One child actor who just finished a popular drama has been contacted by all the biggest entertainment companies in the country and is seriously thinking about it.”

C and D, who has been relatively well treated by the company, are said to not be on good terms with one another. An industry insider stated, “The two have always had incompatible personalities. It’s become harder as they’ve grown older. It will be difficult for C to switch agencies immediately, but C wants to stay as part of the group somehow.”

Celebrity F has become quite absorbed with his looks. He has been quite active and with box-office successes, has been receiving star treatment.

According to an industry insider, “He has the biggest ego these days. It would be good if he had an advisor who could set him straight.”
