Kim Young Min, CEO of SM Entertainment, stated, “It’s unfortunate that because of a certain chain of events and several reports, the relationship between agencies and celebrities is becoming distorted,” and “We will become the forerunners in solving contract issues.”

CEO Kim stated this when he attended the ‘Proclamation Ceremony for the Establishment of a Developing Contract Relationship in the Entertainment Industry’ that was held on the 6th.

CEO Kim stated, “All entertainment agencies will have celebrities who rise to fame or die out. All of them tried to make their dreams come true and it was and is the entertainment agency who provides the celebrities an environment to do so.”

He continued to say, “We are stuck in a frame that forces us to choose between personal interests and business, human rights and the economy,” and “In order to achieve a dream, a promise is made between agencies and celebrities in the form of a contract. We should not have to choose between personal rights and business. We are participating in this project in order to find ways to help the Hallyu Wave, and create an economy that protects the rights of celebrities as much as possible.“

[TRANS] 100706 Kim Tae Hyung “Seven Years For Celebrity Contracts Is Too Short”

Former singer Kim Tae Hyung, director of the Korean Entertainment Production Committee, criticized that a seven year limit on celebrity contracts is not realistic.

Director Kim Tae Hyung attended the ‘The Results and Measures to Develop the Celebrity Standard Contract After One Year of Implementation’ meeting as part of the panel and stated, “It is not realistic to set a limit of seven years on celebrity contracts.”

He stated, “If the standard contract is followed, a trainee has to pay back the investment made to them by the entertainment agency in 2~3 years,” and “But this is impossible. Putting overseas expansion into consideration, the limited number of years for a contract should be lengthened.”

He also explained that, “Of course, the Fair Trade Committee has stated that a renewal of a contract is possible after seven years but this too is unrealistic,” and “When seven years pass, celebrities do not think about the past or their beginning, they only think about the present. That is why the worth that they demand for their work increases dramatically.”

He continued to say, “Not all singers can produce hit songs, so will all celebrities really be able to repay their agencies for all the investments put into them?”

Director Kim then continued to criticize each and every ambiguous expression in the standard contract.
