With actor Hyun Bin’s return announced to be within a month, speculation is running rampant about his eventual decision about his management company.
Hyun Bin will return on December the 6th after his enlistment to the marine corps on last year’s March. With his expiration of the contract with his management AM Entertainment, the big management companies are planning to capture the biggest fish in the 2012 market. However, the most likely scenario is him establishing his own management with his faithful longtime manager. The article will examine the possible scenarios of the 2012′s most celebrated return to drama industry.
A Standalone Management?
With the merger of AM Entertainment with SM C&C, Hyun Bin is now a free agent in the market. Despite his comrades Jang Dong-gun, Kim Ha-neul, and Han Ji-min joining the SM C&C, Hyun Bin is not in a hurry to finalize his eventual place. However, a story was leaked that he is planning to establish a company with his comrade Shin Min-ah.
A source in the industry has commented that “Hyun Bin is most likely to establish a management by himself. His father is rumored to also help with his son’s businss”. According to the sources, Hyun Bin’s father is already heavily involved in Hyun Bin’s plans after his discharge, with his Japan-related business. His faithful manager, already on par with the board in his previous company, is also rumored to join Hyun Bin in his management after his contract expires on October.
A representative from Hyun Bin has commented that “we cannot reveal the specifics because we are adjusting the final decision”, but he has confirmed that “we are discussing his plans with his longtime comrades”.
