Song Joong Ki signed a new contract with a new agency yet managed to keep the faith with his staff.
On February 4, Blossom Entertainment announced through a press release that it had signed a new exclusive contract with Song Joong Ki in February.
Blossom Entertainment holds Cha Tae Hyun, Go Chang Seok, Han Sang Jin, Song Jong Ho, Shin Seung Hwan, Lee Kwang Hoon, Park Bo Gum and more.
Song Joong Ki wasn't the only one who joined the Blossom Entertainment crew; he also brought his manager, CEO Kim Jung Yong with him. The two have worked together since Song Joong Ki's days with Sidus HQ.
Song Joong Ki will also be joined with more of his previous co-workers, as Blossom Entertainment rep Joo Bang Ok and its many other managers were previously signed with Sidus HQ, and have known Song Joong Ki since his debut.
Blossom Entertainment stated, "Song Joong Ki has always treated the people around him the same way, thinking highly of the ties he made in the beginnings of his career. He's still close with the managers and actors - such as Cha Tae Hyun - that he got to know back then. We cannot find any trace of the arrogance often found in successful stars, as he listens to the advice that others have to give. He's smart and modest, and we believe he will be a long-lasting actor."
Song Joong Ki voiced his thanks toward his former agency.
"Sidus HQ helped build up the foundation on which I started acting, and I learned and gained a lot from my time there," he said. "Those times are precious to me. I was thankful that the head of the agency, as well as those who worked hard for me all this time, showed their support for me in my departure. I will be starting off the year of 2013 with Blossom Entertainment, and I will aim to return with a good piece. I hope to see your support."
