Hallyu star Lee Jun-ki has signed with JG Company INC., a newly-established independent talenthouse which will solely manage Lee's career.
"His contract with Mentor Entertainment ended late January and has now decided to join our company," stated a representative from JG on Friday.
JG will follow Hollywood's one-man management system where an agency focuses its efforts on a single celebrity -- from tending to his schedule to his promotional work to his legal issues.
Lee, 27, has been one of the most popular stars in the Asian region since starring in the 2005 hit film "The King and the Clown."
He has also appeared in several dramas including "Iljimae" and the recent MBC TV series "Hero" where he played the role of a passionate magazine reporter. He won the People's Choice Popularity award at MBC's acting awards last year.
Well, I hope this goes smoothly for him and we don't have to read on next week how his old agency sues him over contract violation or something.
