SM C&C is the subsidary that manages Kang Ho Dong, Lee Su Geon and the other non singers artistes. so i believe this is to help Starship navigate to areas beyond just debutting singers. maybe they will eventually sign on comedians, MCs and such also.. just as how FNC in the past signed on Ji Suk Jin, Lee Kook Ju and Yu Jae Suk in the past. also.
