Song Seung-heon is ‘Storm S’Posted: June 13, 2009
Hallyu star Song Seung-heon is a free agent.
The bushy-browed actor has left his previous management, MNet Media and opened up his own company, Storm S. The actor recently founded ‘Storm S’ along with a few close acquaintances this past May and has announced that they will now officially start running their company this month.
An acquaintance of one of the company founder’s stated,
The president of the company is actually Song Seung-heon’s partner. Song Seung-heon himself will have no part in the entertainment financial business side. At the moment, the actor has no specific plans of action and just set up the basic company for now. He is still in need of hiring employees to run the company.
This past June 1st, the actor left a message on his own fanclub homepage titled, “It’s been a while since my last greeting. This is Song Seung heon“. In the post he stated,
Truthfully, I recently left my management company and am preparing for my independence. It’s hard for me to hide my feelings and it makes me sad to think that I am parting ways with the company I was with for the past few years. The company staff members were like family and helped me become who I am today. But lately I’ve constantly been thinking in the back of my mind, ‘Is there anything that I can do better in?’ and ‘I should interact with all of you (fans) more actively’ while another part of my mind is nervous and worried about the decision I’ve made…
The trend seems to be for top stars in Korea to form their own management company. So this is really nothing new. The more important question is: “Since So Ji-sub and Song Seung-heon are close friends and So Ji-sub no longer has a management company since his contract ended with BOF this past May, will he become a family of Storm S?”.
We’re gonna have to wait and see. Meanwhile, congratulations to Song Seung-heon for founding his own company. And a little side note for Mr. Song- you, yourself know better that Storm S is more than likely to be successful, so stop acting like you’re doubting your decision!
