During the episode, Henry spoke about restarting his career after leaving SM Entertainment. He was with SM for 10 years before leaving in April 2018 after his exclusive contract expired. He then set up his own studio to manage his activities in China. In November 2018, he signed with Monster Entertainment Group, a newly formed agency that is part of a global management team that includes the Chinese film production company Filmko Entertainment Group and its US partners.
Henry announced that his brother Clinton, who had previously worked in a telecommunications company, came to Korea to help Henry and eventually started his current agency.
Henry said, “When I left SM for the first time, I was full of confidence. I believed that I could do anything. My original plan was to do everything myself. If I got a call anywhere to appear on a show, I’d just leave. But my brother said if I did it this way it would be a disaster. I realized that I now didn’t have the strength of an agency to support me, but had to do everything on my own.
He continued, “I felt very responsible. So I decided to become a trainee again. This was my brother’s suggestion. He asked me which instruments I played the most. I said I play the violin. I thought I didn’t need to continue studying the violin because I already play it, but he said, “If this is the instrument you play the most, you should practice it the most.” to dance.”
He added, “But the studio doesn’t have a dance practice room. So I practiced by renting practice rooms in different studios. I was even in the practice room that Kang Daniel uses. The first time I asked and got his permission, but the second time I left without telling him. “
Henry recently made a comeback with the mini album “Journey” and the title track “RADIO”.
