Jeon Ji-hyun may renew relationship with Sidus HQ
In a bit of a surprise, it looks like Jeon Ji-hyun (My Sassy Girl, Daisy) may renew her contract with management company Sidus HQ — even after the company was implicated in the cell-phone-cloning scandal that erupted last month.
Three men were charged in the matter, one of them the CEO of the company, Jung Hoon-tak, for having forged her SIM card to track Jeon’s calls and messages. The 27-year-old Jeon had been with Sidus since her debut as a teenager more than a decade ago, but her current contract is due to expire at the end of February.
Most thought that the actress would leave the company and seek her independence. Now it’s being floated about that Jeon may choose to stick with Sidus. One source close to the star said, “She hasn’t made her final decision yet, but I did hear that she will renew her contract rather than sign with a different agency or establish her own company.”
The source said, “They’ve resolved the misunderstandings that arose from this incident” and that “they are working together in an amicable relationship now.” To that end, Jeon asked police that CEO Jung not be punished, and according to her request, Jung and the others were booked without detainment. She’s expected to make a final decision next week.
