Korean actor Lee Dong-gun, currently serving Korea's two-year mandatory military duties, has signed with a new agency.
The news came on Monday through a press release by the firm named Mask Entertainment which also manages the careers of actors Jung Bo-suk, Park Sung-woon, Kim Sung-oh, Oh Hyun-kyung and Kim Ok-vin.
"We are currently looking over various projects so that Lee can return to acting once he is discharged from the military in March 2012 and we will also do everything in our power to support him in his activities overseas in Japan and China as well," an official with Mask was quoted as saying.
Lee said, "I am glad to have signed with a company that I can trust and I am preparing to make my return and meet my fans once again."
