Singer KangTa reveals that he will continue to be under SM Entertainment’s management for more than 10 years to come.
KangTa was present for the press conference to commemorate 1st year establishment of entertainer’s standard contracts on 6th June in Seoul YeoIlDo. He said at the conference, “It has been 15 years since I debuted as H.O.T.”
He said, “During these 15 years, I have not left my agency for once, and I re-contracted with them 4 times. In the coming 10 years, I’m going to stick with them. It is a rare case to continue under one agency for 15 years, and I was asked ‘Why do you continue with them?’. The reason is that I feel it is worthy to stay managed under this agency.”
He added, “There has been great interests regarding my overseas promotions since H.O.T times till after we disbanded. SM is a company which has made many achievements in China, and is able to establish subsidiaries not only in China but in the rest of SEA and even in Japan. And because of that I feel it is the company I need and I feel it is reasonable to stay with SM.”
The conference marks the 1st year anniversary of establishing a standard contract for entertainers to protect their legitimate rights and interests, improving the case of unfair treatment to many entertainers out there in the market.
