Singer and actress Seohyun is still without an agency after she left SM Entertainment. She made the decision to do things on her own without the help of an agency.
Seohyun debuted in 2007 with the girl group Girl's Generation. They made continuous hits and their name represented all girl groups in Korea. The members of the group knew how to sing, act, MC, and even appear in entertainment shows. Seohyun ended her contract with SM last year, but she claims it wasn't because she wanted to act.
"I was in SM for 15 years. The environment I was in had everything ready and set for me. I had my struggles, but I'd been spoilt. The agency helped me come this far, but before the contract ended, I looked back at my life and wondered what I wanted to do and achieve. I decided I wanted to do things on my own now".
SM was perfect, but she couldn't reflect her thoughts and ideas easily. Seohyun said, "I could have taken the safe road, but I wanted a challenge".
"I decided to make my own decisions. It's been about a year now. I've experienced so many things that I wouldn't have experienced if I was still in SM. I miss it sometimes, but I am happy with my choice because I can make my own decisions and be responsible for them. I meet various experts in different fields and I'm learning loads. I have to move myself more than before, but it's being a big help in my life. I still have a long way to go".
When she was in the drama "Time - Drama", she knew about pre-emptions faster than the promotional companies. She made contacts to the right people and made announcements on her SNS. "So many people go through a lot for the actors who have to stand in the spotlight. If I want to be able to stand in the spotlight, I have to move on my own feet".
She's currently meeting without various companies although she doesn't plan on joining them right away. She feels it's necessary to find one eventually, but she hasn't made decisions yet.
