Hello, this is Fantagio.
We are writing to let you know our exclusive contracts with actors Seo Kang Joon, Gong Myung, Kang Tae Oh, Lee Tae Hwan, and Yoo Il ended on March 31.
Before the contracts ended, we carefully discussed with each of the five actors and we have decided to respect each other’s opinions, and we will be cheering them as they go on their new journeys.
We would like to thank the fans for loving Seo Kang Joon, Gong Myung, Kang Tae Oh, Lee Tae Hwan, and Yoo Il all this time. Please continue to show your love and support for the five actors in the future.
