Actor Lee Jong-suk signs with YGActor Lee Jong-suk has found himself a new home at the mainstream management agency YG Entertainment, the company said Tuesday.
“By adding the Korean Wave star Lee Jong-suk on top of stars like Gang Dong-won and Kim Hee-ae that we recruited earlier this year, we now have a solid lineup of actors,” YG Entertainment said.
After being a fashion model for many years, the actor made his foray into acting in 2010.
Through the successful dramas “I Can Hear Your Voice” (2013), “Doctor Stranger” (2014) and “Pinocchio” (2014-15), the actor has earned much popularity not only in Korea but in other countries including China.
Lee has also recently finished the shoot for the new drama that was co-produced by Chinese and Korean companies. The actor plays the male lead.
And through the new MBC drama “W,” Lee will return to the small screen on July 20.
