There is always talk of popular idols having been under other agencies or even certain agencies having rejected them during auditions.
In a recent discussion on online community board Instiz, a netizen published a thread titled “An unfortunate entertainment company,” listing several well-known idols such as G.NA, Wonder Girls‘ Yubin, After School‘s Uee, SECRET‘s Hyosung, SPICA‘s Jiwon, IU, Juniel, AOA‘s Choa, and 4MINUTE‘s Gayoon.
So what do these idols have in common? Good Entertainment.
The netizen writes, “Good Entertainment…… They had a good eye.
Good Entertainment is an agency that was established in 2003 before closing down in 2009 due to their difficult financial situation. They are known for having Shinhwa and idol group Battle (disbanded) under their care for an amount of time.
The Wikipedia screenshot provided by the netizen also lists Sunmin, Eddy, Lyn, Lee Yerin, Lee Chang Myung, Lee Byung Jin, and Jung Jae Hwan.
Additionally, Good Entertainment is known for having almost debuted the girl group known as Five Girls which consisted of After School’s Uee, G.NA, Wonder Girls’ Yubin, SECRET’s Hyosung, and SPICA’s Jiwon. Other notable trainees include AOA’s Choa, Juniel, IU, 4MINUTE’s Gayoon, and U-KISS‘s Soohyun.
