A new year and a new agency beginning for K-actor Song Joong Ki, who is probably relieved to put the tumultuous 2019 behind him. He didn’t renew his contract with longtime agency Blossom Entertainment last month and this weekend a new startup agency called History D&C announced that Song Joong Ki had signed with them. The agency is by veteran agency manager Hwang Ki Yong who oversaw the production of dramas Nice Guy, Tree With Deep Roots, and Will it Snow for Christmas hence the connection with Song Joong Ki. His performance in these three dramas were foundational in his career though less high profile than his later works Descendants of the Sun and Arthdal Chronicles. I hope he goes back to his roots and drops some darker and meatier fare going forward.
