The situation of the agency whose actors will all become soldiers soon
As actor Kang Tae-oh (Kim Yoon-hwan)’s enlistment time approaches, fans are increasingly worried about his agency. This is because if Kang Tae-oh joins the army, all of the actors in Man of Creation will become “soldiers”.
Recently, a post titled “The agency whose actors are all soldiers soon” was shared on SNS, online communities and drew attention from netizens.
As Kang Tae-oh is highly likely to enlist in September, questions were raised about his agency’s future.
Netizens expressed doubt, “Kang Tae-oh’s agency has only three actors. Two of them are already soldiers and the remaining one is going to be a soldier soon. If Kang Tae-oh joins the army, his agency will be empty. What do they have to do now?”
In fact, there are three actors in Man of Creation: Kang Tae-oh, Seo Kang-joon (Lee Seung-hwan) and Lee Tae-hwan. Seo Kang-joon and Lee Tae-hwan are currently serving in the military.
For this reason, the agency’s official SNS channels are covered with news and photos related to Kang Tae-oh.
Seo Kang-joon started his military service in November last year, and Lee Tae-hwan also joined the army in June this year to fulfill his military duty. The two are scheduled to be discharged in May and December next year, respectively.
If the remaining actor Kang Tae-oh enlists, there will be virtually no actors left in the agency to manage. In other words, they will lose their duty for more than half a year until May next year when Seo Kang-joon is discharged.
Netizens left comments such as “Employees are on vacation until March or April next year”, “But I’m really curious. What will employees do? Going on vacation?”, “Actors are still far from being discharged”…
In this regard, Wikitree wanted to hear about Man of Creation’s plan, but could not reach them.
Meanwhile, Man of Creation is a company established in 2020.
Kang Tae-oh, Seo Kang-joon, Yoo Il (Park Sang-il) and Lee Tae-hwan, who were initially active as the actor group “5urprise” in Fantagio, moved here when their contracts expired. It is known that the company was founded by the head of the management team, who has been with them since their debut. Gong Myung, who was in the same group, moved to another agency.
Although not known specifically, Yoo Il is currently excluded from Man of Creation’s list of actors.
Kang Tae-oh, who gained popularity through ENA’s Wednesday-Thursday drama “Extraordinary Attorney Woo”, was born in 1994 and will enlist this year at the age of 28.
On August 31st, he will hold an online fan meeting to meet fans from 190 countries through “TikTok Stage Connect: SweeTaeOh”.
