News of Korean entertainers changing agencies is par for the course but this one merits an added thought piece because I’m truly baffled by the pairing, longevity, and career trajectory of the star and agency on question. Actress Gu Hye Sun has left YG Entertainment after 14 years with the powerhouse agency, a rarity in loyalty but I don’t know if it did either side any favors. Gu Hye Sun’s biggest drama hit to date was nearly a decade ago with Boys Before Flowers in 2009 and she’s never capitalized on that mega hit nor has she figured out what exactly she wants to focus on.
Is it acting, singing, directing, art, or poetry, she’s tried it all and truth be told the acting and singing parts I’ve seen make me wish she would pick one of the other options especially if she’s much better at it. YG does have a strong stable of actors including big names Cha Seung Won, Kang Dong Won, Choi Ji Woo, Kim Hee Ae and younger generation popular stars Lee Jong Seok, Nam Joo Hyuk, and Lee Sung Kyung so Gu Hye Sun did have strong backing but her last two dramas were best known for meeting her husband Ahn Jae Hyun on Blood and having to quit You’re Too Much due to a health problem. I wish her the best but lordy I do not get her career choices.
