Lee Jong Suk (이종석) is one lucky guy.
Not only did the actor sign an exclusive contract with South Korean entertainment powerhouse YG Entertainment, industry insiders are saying that he is managed personally by Yang Hyun Suk and word on the street is that the CEO takes extreme care of the South Korean heartthrob, making sure he is in top condition.
According to Korean news outlet Sports World via Soompi, various industry sources have revealed that while YG has signed several A-list actors such as Kang Dong Won and Lee Jong Suk, they’re lacking the personnel to exclusively handle their actors.
“In the case of Lee Jong Suk, he personally prepares his filming outfits for ‘W’ and is the type to really pay attention to detail with accessories. But due to lack of staff, he has had to resort to temporary measures,” said a source.
As the actor is known to be thorough, Yang Hyun Suk had to step in to fill the void when a YG manager and hands-on staff left the company. But you know, we’ll gladly take up the role of being Lee Jong Suk’s manager. Where do we sign up? ;)
The young star joined YG in May 2016 and he is best known for his leading roles in hit K-Dramas such as “School 2013” (2012), “I Can Hear Your Voice” (2013), “Doctor Stranger” (2014), and “Pinocchio” (2014). He is currently starring in a 16-episode series for MBC, titled “W”.
