    (Trans) World of celebrities' manager
    translated & posted by Yoon in Quilt Freeboard


    Following is a part of a long article about the world of entertainers' managers run in the March 2005 issue of Shin Donga. I excerpted only the part about BYJ ~~


    “It's BYJ!!”
    “Really, there is no one like BYJ.”

    When I asked managers who I met during this report (heads of entertainment management companies, team leaders, road managers) which star they would want to work with, they unanimously named BYJ. When I asked back, "Is it because he is the hot Korean Wave star and making a lot of money?", they all shook their heads in unison.

    "I heard BYJ gave a foreign car and an expensive sedan and a house in Kangnam to two managers and his stylist who have worked with him for long. (The reason I want to work with him) is not because he gave his managers expensive gifts.
    Among celebrities, no one treats highly and rewards his manager nicely like BYJ. The biggest reason that I want to work with him is because he treats his manager as an equal.” said Hwang, who has worked as a manager for 7 years at a big management company.

    Entertainment management business is outwardly getting bigger in size thanks to the Korean Wave. But the managers I met during this report all confessed, "I envy BYJ's manager. We are nothing but disposables for stars."

    A main task of the management industry is to help and manage star's activities. It is not an exaggeration that this industry starts from the relationship between stars and their managers. Currently Korean management industry is heavily concentrating on (movie or TV) actors and singers. This coverage was conducted with actors' management companies at the center.

    Legendary 'BYJ's gift'

    The definition of manager in the dictionary is something like 'someone to control, manage and superintend' In other words, it refers to someone who can train, control and influence someone and carries out necessary tasks to do so. A manager in the management industry refers to a person who plans and manages entertainer's activities in general, but Hwang says the reality is far from this 'theory'. Following is what he said:

    "When I first started this business, my seniors couldn't emphasize enough, "Do not get attached to the 'people with makeup' (a slang referring to entertainers). You will be betrayed" I didn't know what they meant, but as I went through many entertainers for a long time I could figure out what they meant. Most of the entertainers only 'pretend' to be nice because their manager's effort can affect their popularity and income. But they coldly turn their back even when they have slightly beffer offers or better opportunity. I saw many times newcomers who just began to gain popularity leave their agency after finding excuses to breach the contract even when their contract didn't expire. I myself experienced that several times."

    In April last year when BYJ dissolved a exclusive contract with his then agency Hanshin Corporation, many management companies competed to get him.
    They offered a huge amount of advance money and they even added a condition that they will accept all his requests 100% but they were all rejected. BYJ thrusted all temptations and signed an exclusive contract with BOF(Inc) by Bae Sungwoong and Yang Keunwhan, who have worked with him through thick and thin for more than 4 years as his managers.

    BOF(Inc) was a new management company which Bae and Yang set up with capital account of 100 million won. They invited as representative director Lee Donghoon, who majored in movie, broadcasting and marketing at University of California. What's more surprising is the fact that BYJ signed on the exclusive contract without getting any separate advance money. BYJ also agreed that 4 directors including Yang Keunhwan would equallly share equity capital.

    Yang said, "To systematically manage domestic and foreign fans and to maintain this family-like atmosphere was BYJ's only request." He said as follows about BYJ's gift that was widely known to the management industry.

    "Hyung (a term for one's older brother. Yang calls BYJ so) didn't want us to eat pork when he eats beef. He cherishes managers who work with him and always propped us up as indispensable people for his work. About 2 years ago, Bae Sungwoong was given a foreign-made car as a gift and I and his stylist were given a Korean luxury sedan because we personally didn't like foreign cars. And when family members (referring to the agency employees) got a house or needed some money he quietly helped them. Hyung would often say, 'If your life is hard, wouldn't you get distracted while you work with me?' He still takes care of the entry level employees first and enjoys working out with them." .

    nobody can be like BYJ...who treasures every fan(family members) from korea or overseas........Some artistes really think that they are "BIG STARS" and act like one...But not YJ..........he will never give us a STAR look/cool look when he heard us calling his name........ it's like seeing his family members....he gave us the smile and expression as if you are his sisters.....

    Where on earth can you find a celebrity who take cares of his employees? How many of us have bosses who do that?

    As what Yang Geun Hwan has said....if he eats beef, he doesn't want the staff to be eating pork....
    This is like when we are in difficulties, all of them still stick together with him.....but when he make $$, he want all of them to share the joy and bonus.....

    Can i have such a boss? image

    When i read the articles from our local magazines recently plus the Korea media reports.....and listening to the AS OST, i nearly cried out on the way home in the bus(how could i do it publicly?) but i really control myself .........It's really hurting to see a good person being bashed by the media, knowing that he is a low profile person and will not come out and rebuke their articles.
    I love "내여자친구는 구미호"!! 승기, 민아 화이팅!!!i love the 'Hoi-Hoi Dimples couple'!!!

    When i read the articles from our local magazines recently plus the Korea media reports.....and listening to the AS OST, i nearly cried out on the way home in the bus(how could i do it publicly?) but i really control myself .........It's really hurting to see a good person being bashed by the media, knowing that he is a low profile person and will not come out and rebuke their articles.


    hello yon ... i also would like to have a boss like BYJ image

    not surprising if his managers and staff are still with him after so many years coz the Man really knows how to take care of the ppl who works with him. they seem to have an effective give & take relationship.

    that's very sad that some SG print media is picking up the unfair reporting of korean media. yong joon is now in a position that some ppl are just envious and jealous & they want to pull him down by writing all those negative write ups. human nature at its worst....

    as i've said before, these media ppl particularly the kr media will soon realize that its a futile effort in bashing BYJ coz its just difficult to put a good man down.


    hey Carol you seem to be having a great collection of magazines with Yong Joon in it !! lucky you image

    ~~ a beautiful article from CoffeeAroma527 , a fellow BYJ fan from China. thanks bb for another wonderful translation image

    [Trans] I Want My Yong Joon to be Free


    bb: I’m sure most of you have read quite many postings here and elsewhere
    from fellow fans from China Mainland asking for Yong Joon to visit China.
    Anyway, today, I just want to introduce an alternative voice from one of them.
    CoffeeAroma527, too, loves Yong Joon as much as us,
    but more importantly,
    she has chosen to wish Yong Joon good health and happiness,
    instead of wishing for him to visit.

    I suppose almost all fans would love to see Yong Joon in person.
    However, over and above this,
    we also want him to be happy and healthy, and to have some time to himself.

    So, if it’s not possible for Yong Joon to visit all ten cities to promote April Snow,
    so be it.
    What’s more important is for him to have sufficient rest
    and to have time to himself so that he can do the things he enjoys.
    We can always “see” him in the movie,
    and it will be with much pride and joy when we watch the movie,
    coz we know he's given his best to present a mighty good piece of work for us.

    Personally, CoffeeAroma572’s thoughts reflect a lot of what I feel as well,
    so I’ve translated her beautifully written passage into English to share with all.
    Enjoy.

    Happiebb

    An Alternative Voice Amongst the Chinese Fans
    - I Want My Yong Joon to be Free



    In my mind, I really do see the BYJ fans as different from the fans of other stars.

    In 2003, when Yong Joon’s not quite as hot and popular as he is now,
    we loved him.
    Because he rekindles that warm and fuzzy something in all our hearts,
    and also, because he’s given us a faraway, mysterious dream.
    Because of how unique Yong Joon is,
    that’s why he’s attracted a group of fans who are so different from other fans.
    That’s why we’re different.
    And the difference is that BYJ fans tend to be more matured.
    Well, women who love Yong Joon tend not to be the teenyboppers,
    and also because of their life experiences,
    they’re better able to understand and appreciate the characters and roles
    Yong Joon has portrayed in his works.

    Such a fan base, it’s not the wildly crazy, not the easily excitable group.
    Such a fan base is more like a river streaming with love steadily and quietly.

    In all honestly,
    I do not read so much into the issue of whether Yong Joon comes to China or not.
    It’s not because I do not love him.
    It’s just that I prefer to let things take its natural course.

    Yong Joon does what he should,
    and he does his best to present his best work for us.
    As for us, we spend much time and effort on the Internet searching tirelessly
    for everything related to him and sharing earnestly everything that is related to him.
    This man, though so faraway, has an important place in all of our hearts.
    We love him, we praise him, we wish him well,
    and we thank him right from the bottom of our hearts.
    To him, this counts as our support to him.

    Not everyone can occupy so much of our time.

    I’m a selfish woman, and I’m not very demanding on myself;
    likewise, I do not demand much from Yong Joon.
    I only want him to live well, and not tire himself out,
    and I do not want him to be such a perfectionist.
    In fact, I even wish he will not become too popular,
    so that he can still breathe freely on the streets.

    I want my Yong Joon to be free
    And I want my Yong Joon to be carefree..

    I’ve never been the type to enthuse and scream passionately my love and desire,
    and I’m the same when it comes to Yong Joon.

    To me, popularity does not make the value of an actor.
    What an actor needs to do is to act,
    and eventually to leave behind a classic work
    and a long-lasting or even poignant character in the history of movies.
    Even if his fan base is small,
    even if he doesn’t cause a frenzy amongst thousands and thousands of women,
    he… (a great actor) can still live forever and ever.

    I sincerely wish that Yong Joon will do his job well.

    As for me?
    I will just watch him from afar, and pray for him quietly.
