Finally! Here is the confirmation we all have been waiting for. HB Entertainment informs the public that Jo Hyun Jae has signed an exclusive contract with them today, March 10, 2015.

Here is one of several news articles that was released today:

[엑스포츠뉴스=박소현 기자] 배우 조현재가 HB엔터테인먼트와 전속계약을 맺었다.

HB엔터테인먼트측은 10일 배우 조현재와 전속계약을 체결했다고 밝혔다. 조현재는 지난해 말 매니지먼트 구와의 계약을 완료하고 새로운 소속사를 물색해왔다.

HB엔터테인먼트측은 ”
조현재는 그간 아시아권에서 큰 사랑을 받은 드라마에 출연해 중국, 일본에서 두터운 마니아층을 형성하고 있다”며 “철저한 자기 관리로 데뷔 시절과 비교해 손색없는 이미지를 유지하고 있어 앞으로의 활동이 더욱 기대된다”고 밝혔다.

조현재는 “탄탄한 매니지먼트 노하우를 갖춘 소속사를 만나 기쁘다. HB엔터테인먼트에서 새로운 마음으로 배우 생활을 이어나가겠다”고 새로운 둥지를 틀게 된 소감을 전했다.

한편 HB엔터테인먼트에는 김래원, 지진희, 이지아, 신성록, 안재현, 조성하, 윤종화, 최민, 이이경, 권수현, 윤진욱, 김동석 등이 소속되어있고, 드라마 ‘펀치’, ‘별에서 온 그대’, ‘내 딸 서영이’, ‘따뜻한 말 한마디’, ‘너희들은 포위됐다’, 영화 ‘오직 그대만’ 등을 제작한 종합 엔터테인먼트 기업이다.

I will not translate the whole article verbatim, just the highlights.

Aside from the confirmation, the HB Entertainment official said that JHJ has appeared in dramas that received lots of love in many countries in Asia, and has a big following (fan base) especially in Japan and China. The HB Entertainment official also added that through self-management, JHJ has managed to maintain an image that is comparable to when he just debuted as an actor (meaning that even in his 30s JHJ still looks like he is in his 20s – so true!)

JHJ said that he is very happy to join an agency with a strong management expertise.
