The May 4 installment of KBS 2TV's 'Happy Together 3' featured Yoo Hee Yeol talking about his interest in singer IU.

When asked if Yoo Hee Yeol had any plans to recruit IU into his agency, 'Antenna Music', Jung Jae Hyung commented, "Even if Yoo Hee Yeol had to sell his entire estate, I doubt it would work."

Hearing this, Yoo Hee Yeol responded, "If IU truly had plans to switch over, I would change my record label to 'IU Music.'", making the viewers laugh.

LOEN Agency is likely 'the devil' that IU knows them. And LOEN has supported IU through some 'controversy' situations too. Also, IU has gotten some decent PRODUCT ENDORSEMENT income situations via LOEN too ; and ACTING ROLES work. I *suspect* that IF IU was to change to being *more* of an ACTING ROLES career Entertainer ; THEN you might see a *change* from IU to a more ACTING ROLES oriented Agency ; along the lines of say KEYEAST or WELLMADE YEDANG Agencies. But for now, with IU being known mostly as a K-pop Idol ; I see IU staying with LOEN Agency. After all, IU has had some GOOD SUCCESS with LOEN overall. On the other hand, some kind of PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP situation with IU *might* cause a change of AGENCY. Say if IU and SUZY (MISS A) might try to form their OWN AGENCY as close personal friends ; something like that.

If there is something like a agency for SINGER Cum Actresses, formed, which can promote them BOTH as singers and actresses, (By Singer/actress, for Singer/Actress) with Bae Suzy as CEO (like how Bae Yoon Joon, turned CEO/Business also, ha ha. Then the agency should have Apink Jung Eunji, Suzy, IU, Yoona, Girls Day Minah, lol should be in. maybe the agency name can be called "VISUAL Entertainment" then all the girls inside all formerly visuals or center. lol, Seolhyun, Yoona, Suzy, Son Na Eun, etc. (Delusional)

Actually, what seems ODD to me ; is that there is NOT a FEMALE MANAGED K-POP AGENCY of significance. I think there was some talk that DSP Agency was being run by the WIFE of the CEO at one point? Anyway, I am NOT really 'expert' on this. BUT, I was looking at KAHI (After School) as having the kind of personality that MIGHT be able to be a *successful* CEO MANAGER of a 'K-pop / Actress Agency' like you are speaking of it. I do NOT really know why more of the TOP FEMALE 'talents' in K-Entertainment do NOT form an AGENCY under someone LIKE KAHI ; is what I mean to say it.

I remember YG's CEO, said about BoA once, saying that Lee Soo Man should appoint her as a producer as she is good at grooming the trainees, I would have thought BoA would form an agency of her own, like how Rain left JYP and tried to make his own agency. I think maybe its because most of the female idols dun want to manage the business side of things, and there isnt many Korean Female CEO in the business anyway. not just in entertainment. so its a rare trait to find a female who is willing to take the reins and lead a company or form her own. I am not talking about those who open and run a restaurant or cafe. However WJSN's Cheng Xiao (non Korean, Chinese), did say her ambition is to be a CEO of an agency, though even if she did succeed in becoming one, it will likely be a CEO of her own chinese agency back in China i believe. so maybe female Koreans dun have that kind of ambition. I think Lee Hyori would make a good CEO, also, seeing how she helped SPICA once with their album, from changing their image, shooting the album covers, and MV etc, and their warerobe.

krell Winston Thursday, May 4, 2017

Yes, LEE HYORI *does* seem like someone who MIGHT want to try her hand at MANAGING in an AGENCY. There is an OLDER AGE ACTRESS (S.K) that has a LOT of MONEY (Net Worth) ... I had never heard of her ; but maybe SHE would care to BANKROLL it a little bit ... Let me see if I can find her name ... I cannot find it just now ... But IF you could get say JUN JI HYUN (actress) involved, THAT would get some attention, as I see it. SHE is quite the REAL ESTATE MOGUL.

https://corpgov. law. harvard. edu /2017/01/05/gender-parity-on-boards-around-the-world/ ... <-- For GENDER EQUALITY on BOARDS OF DIRECTORS for CORPORATIONS on a GLOBAL BASIS ... It says --> "Contrast this with some of the lowest performing companies in terms of gender parity—for example, South Korea, where hermetically-sealed, family-contained chaebols run a significant number of companies, and traditional attitudes around gender roles run strong. South Korea has the lowest gender parity of any country in the ISS QualityScore universe." ... =^= ... I guess THAT does VALIDATE your general comment about FEMALES in CORPORATE LEADERSHIP in S.KOREA ...

For Jun Ji Hyun, real estate is something you dun need much attention to look after since it just sits there, as for the maintenance aspect, you can hire a company or outsource that, she only needs to collect the rents or appoint a collector on her behalf. so its an income/investment which needs little time to oversee, unlike managing an agency, which involves more human aspect, training, costs, marketing, promoting and such, and if not managed properly, its easy to rake up a big loss, See: Lee Sang Min, so i guess he is like a standing example of what a failed Agency CEO can become. Though he was very successful in his time, maybe he got a bit too hot-headed and careless in how he spends money after he got rich. He has been bankrupt for over 12 years and is still trying to clear his debt, last i heard it was around 6million USD or so, of cos i dunno how much of that is outstanding as of today. but i do remember RAIN did say something about he will "do something" about it for him, of cos it can mean other aspect, other than actually helping him pay for it, maybe Rain can help by introducing him to more jobs/offers by hooking him up with PDs he knows and such.

With Jun Ji Hyun, the reason that I mention her ; is that *clearly* she is a fairly SMART female. Who would be a *good* person to have in an 'auditing' type situation with an ENTERTAINMENT AGENCY. Say in a 'Investor / Founder' type role. JUN JI HYUN's involvement could be 'used' to ATTRACT *DESIRABLE* FEMALE TALENT to be represented by theIr AGENCY.

Honestly I kind of want IU to go to Antenna

Winston yekky Thursday, May 4, 2017

i think YHY knows that so he is bringing it up as a joke. still i wish Antenna will sign up a power female vocal, like IU, Ailee, in future. maybe someone will audition there

skididdlepopper Thursday, May 4, 2017

Loen would never let that happen xD

Kminyoungiee skididdlepopper Thursday, May 4, 2017

That cute IU thumbnail tho <3 Of course IU is da Queen

Winston Thursday, May 4, 2017

lol YHY, unfortunately for him, IU seems to be very loyal to her label, being with them since 2008, but it also seems her contract with them is due for a renewal this year. usually its on the 7th and 9th year.  due to a 2 year extension after the 7th year. (usually).

Kminyoungiee Winston Thursday, May 4, 2017

her contract with them like you said will be up this year. We will only know she is loyal to them if she resigns regardless of other offers.

The End
