After 17 years, Lee Seung-gi split with agency
Singer and actor Lee Seung-gi ended his 17-year contract with Hook Entertainment and will represent himself going forward.
“On the foundation of trust, we have been together for a long time even before his debut,” the agency said, "but the artist recently decided to separate from us to form his own agency and resume his activities independently.”
Lee debuted as a singer in 2004 with his album “Dream of a Moth” and released a series of hit ballads including “Because You’re My Woman” (2007), “Will You Marry Me” and “Return” (2012). He expanded his career by acting on hit television series including “My Girlfriend is a Gumiho” (2010) on SBS, “The King 2 Hearts” (2012) on MBC and “Vagabond” (2019) on SBS. He recently featured as a psychopathic police officer on the tvN series “Mouse,” which ended earlier this month. Lee also appeared on the KBS variety show “1 Night 2 Days” from Nov. 2007 to Feb. 2012.
Local entertainment news outlet Dispatch reported Monday that Lee is dating actor Lee Da-in, releasing photos of the couple visiting Lee’s grandmother’s residence in Sokcho, Gangwon. Actor Lee Da-in’s agency, 9Ato Entertainment, confirmed the duo’s relationship Monday afternoon, announcing that the couple has been dating for about six months.
