That’s right. So Ji Sub is really making name for himself in Asia. Oh how I wish he could break into the American market. But for some reason I get the feeling that breaking into the American market is synonymous with being corrupted to the highest degree. The entertainment industry is treacherous no matter what country, but the U.S. is on a whole other level…
Sorry for getting off the subject! Anyway, the Japanese entertainment agency that signed him, Sony’s So-net Entertainment, had this to say about Mr. So: “So Ji Sub is an actor who has broadened his scope not only across Korea, but to Japan and China as well, making him one of Asia’s representative actors. Considering So Ji Sub’s domestic status and acting influence, we offered a contract and salary that is much greater than what other agencies would offer.”
They continued, “Since So Ji Sub has a very strong commitment to acting, we believe that we can broaden his status in Japan with the experience gained from filming Japanese movies and dramas.”
We’re proud of you Ji Sub!
