Rumors have it that Lee Jae Wook will be setting up his own entertainment label, but this is yet to be confirmed. However, netizens have their opinion regarding the actor’s big change in his career.

As mentioned by an online community, they think that Lee Jae Wook is not established enough to create a one-man agency.

Unlike other stars who have cemented their name in the industry and have proven their star power, some have raised the question of whether he is “big enough to make a one-man company.”

The same goes for some who think that it’s too early for him to leave an established label and start his own entertainment company.

“I don’t think he should set up his own company.”

“I’m not saying this to criticize you, but Lee Jae-wook’s acting is fine and everything is good, but I don’t think it’s enough to run a one-man agency.”

One user even noticed that Lee Jae Wook “changes agencies very often.”
