The official also explained, “S Plus’ headquarters in Japan currently handles various affairs for Kim in Japan but that’s different from signing an exlusive contract.”
S Plus supports several ‘Hallyu,’ or Korean Waves stars in Japan including Song Seung-heon, Kang Ji-hwan and Lee Jun-ki, either managing their career in the country, creating their Japanese websites or promoting their businesses.
