Pledis Entertainment will be a label of Big Hit Entertainment but will still be operated independently. Pledis producer Han Sung Soo will add to the powerful lineup of Big Hit’s creative leaders, which was previously strengthened with the addition of CBO Min Hee Jin last year. Pledis artists will receive professional and systematic support from Big Hit along with further resources and connections on a global scale.

Han Sung Soo commented, “I am glad to join Big Hit, which is leading the Korean entertainment industry. This will provide an opportunity for the Pledis artists and involved individuals to all take a step forward. I am looking forward to the future that will be created with the combination of Pledis’s creative and Big Hit’s strengths. We will give back with better content for fans and greater success of our artists.

Big Hit CEO Bang Si Hyuk remarked, “More than anything, I am glad that we can collaborate with CEO Han Sung Soo and Pledis’s creative organization. Big Hit and Pledis will grow together with mutual understanding through music and create synergy in the future.”

Pledis Entertainment is currently home to artists including NU’EST, SEVENTEEN, Nana, Bumzu, Kyulkyung, Yehana, and Sungyeon.

The Return of Superman Ep 330

Yeonwoo & Hayoung

Yeonwoo helps Hayoung with her speech with the help of treats. Their father makes her favorite friend come to life (it’s a fail lol). Then they make a meal together. Sam is getting tired of William and Ben constantly calling out for him, so he makes a plan. It doesn’t sit well with William, so he moves out. And Ben is tasked with helping bring him home. I love Bentley’s new independence lol. He seems to enjoy it a lot too. Jam Jam goes over to visit Haoh and they are still the cutest together! They look like they are having lots of fun together. And lol at Haoh “you are good at it”!

Plot: Twenty years ago, Yoon Ji Soo (Jeon So Nee) fell in love with a man who made her heart sing. As a freshman in the college of music, Ji Soo didn’t expect to catch the eye of Han Jae Hyun (Park Jinyoung), a popular, headstrong law school student, but she did. Falling for him as quickly as he fell for her, the two experienced one of the most beautiful moments any two people can experience together: their first love. But like so many first loves, theirs wouldn’t last forever.

Now in her forties, Ji Soo (Lee Bo Young) is a single mother, working a contract job in a desperate attempt to make ends meet. Jae Hyun (Yoo Ji Tae), on the other hand, is a successful, ambitious businessman who has pursued wealth and honor, above all else. Far different than the man he once was, Jae Hyun is hardly recognizable as the headstrong kid he used to be. But when fate brings Ji Soo back into his life, she recognizes him almost immediately.

Suddenly back in each other’s lives, Ji Soo and Jae Hyun have been granted a rare opportunity to start over. But can two people really separated by so many years and experiences, really reignite a flame that flickered out so many years ago?

A story of first loves and second chances, “When My Love Blooms” is a 2020 romantic drama directed by Song Jung Hyun.
