On September 24, management agency Story J Company confirmed that they have signed an exclusive contract with actor Kim Jung Hyun.
Earlier this year, Kim Jung Hyun became wrapped up in controversy after his former label O& Entertainment claimed that the actor had violated his exclusive contract. After some disagreement, Kim Jung Hyun came to a settlement with the agency in May, becoming a free agent.
At the same time, Kim Jung Hyun also belatedly came under fire for his controversial departure from the MBC drama 'Time' in 2018. Various sources claimed that Kim Jung Hyun's unprofessional attitude on the set of the drama 'Time' was the result of a relationship he was involved in with his former co-star and actress, Seo Ye Ji.
Since the various controversies and rumors, Kim Jung Hyun has remained largely inactive. However, it seems that Kim Jung Hyun is now ready to return to his acting career under Story J Company.
Kim Jung Hyun most recently starred in the tvN drama series 'Mr. Queen', aired from December of 2020 until February of 2021. Meanwhile, Story J Company is home to stars like Kim Tae Hee, Seo In Guk, Yoo Seung Ho, and more.
