Shinhwa’s Eric has teamed up with his manager of 10 years to set up a new management agency for his individual activities.
Early this year, Eric set up E&J Entertainment with his longtime manager of 10 years, CEO Lee Jong Hyun, to prepare for his individual activities. The first project he has decided on is the KBS new Mon-Tue drama ‘Discovery of Romance’, which he will be headlining.
CEO Lee Jong Hyun has been working with Eric since the time he was signed to Good EMG, and has been maintaining a close relationship. The two left their previous agency Top Class Entertainment last year, and set up E&J Entertainment this year, which takes the initials from their names (Eric & Jong Hyun).
Shinhwa’s group activities are currently managed by Shinhwa Company, while the members’ solo activities are being managed by their individual agencies. Eric will continue to handle Shinhwa’s group activities as the CEO of Shinhwa Company, but at the same time his solo activities will be managed through E&J Entertainment. CEO Lee Jong Hyun will continue to be involved in both Shinhwa’s group activities as well as Eric’s solo activities.

Shinhwa is expected to make their comeback in the later half of this year.
