Hyun Bin has sights on new agency upon release
With less than a month until he is discharged from the military service, rumor has it that Hyun Bin will sign with O & Ent Agency.
On Nov. 8 various media outlets speculated the possibility that Hyun will join the newly formed agency, which actress Shin Min-a also calls home.
The two actors used to belong to AM Entertainment until the agency merged with SM C&C, a division of the Hallyu powerhouse SM Entertainment.
When the merger took place Hyun and Shin decided to go their separate ways from their former representative.
O & Ent was set up by those who worked with Hyun and Shin at AM Entertainment, and Hyun is currently fine-tuning contract details with the company as he looks toward his release from conscription service on Dec. 6.
Ahead of his release last month, Hyun, who is serving in the Marine Corps, was promoted from corporal to sergeant.
Ilgan Sports reported on Sept. 20 that an inauguration ceremony for Hyun took place on Oct. 1, national Armed Forces Day.
“The ceremony was attended by all the military personnel at the base and Hyun spent Chuseok here,” a spokesperson for the military told Ilgan Sports.
Meanwhile, the Hallyu heartthrob won over many a heart two years ago when he opted to undertake military service in the Marine Corps, one of the toughest divisions in the army.
