Yim Si Wan Debating Extending Contract with Star Empire

Star Empire, singer and actor Yim Si-wan’s agency, told local media Monday that it is in talks with Yim over the extension of his contract, set to expire in January 2017. “Nothing is concrete about the term extension,” said a source from Star Empire. “We have been in talks with Yim. Time is not ripe to say that he is open to signing a new term with another agency.”
The report came after rumors Yim is seeking a new agency that will support his career as a full-time actor. Yim’s possible departure is likely to bode ill for the boy band he belongs to, Ze:A, which has been in hiatus for 2 1/2 years as a full nine-member idol group.
