Singer Kyuhyun recently appeared in the YouTube content "Bongo Live" and compared the welfare of SM and Antenna.
Kyuhyun, who came back with a new song after signing a contract with Antenna, said, "I signed a contract with SM as Kyuhyun as a member of the group 'Super Junior'. Kyuhyun as a group and as an individual are completely divided, and we respect that."
Kyuhyun stated, "Many people have this big image of me living in my house. The accommodation I live in now is provided by Antenna. I pay the monthly rent," adding that the deposit was made by Antenna. Lee Yong-jin said, "The welfare is not bad."
Kyuhyun said, "The welfare was really good in SM as well. Since it's a big company, SM was the best in terms of management and welfare in the entertainment industry. You know, like hair removal or the fitness club." Lee Yong-jin said, "Kyuhyun, hair removal as your company's welfare?" and Kyuhyun refuted, "Do you know how important hair removal is these days?"
Kyuhyun added, "The company didn't do everything, but they did provide fitness and Japanese language lessons. It seems that each company has its own strengths and weaknesses. Our company is small, but it feels more family-like. Since the delivery system is simplified, sometimes it goes to the CEO straight away."
"If I were the CEO of Antenna, I would be so glad to have you in my company," said Lee Yong-jin, mentioning the continuous performance of Kyuhyun in musicals and singing as a singer. "My company is such a great support. I was very touched while preparing for the album. I heard from my fans that the company prepared a lot and the fandom was touched," he said. "In our company, they fully trust the artists and change the terms and conditions according to them if needed."
