Darren Wang becomes a household name overnight after starring in Our Times <我的少女時代>.
However, Darren suddenly wanted to terminate his contract with his manager Angie Chai’s agency, Star Ritz. As he still has 3 years of contract with his existing agency, his well-to-do father reportedly would need to fork out NT40 million compensation.
Kai Ko, who shares the same manager with Darren, is said to have fallen out with him for his decision to terminate the contract. He thought that Darren was being ungrateful to leave the agency after he had shot to fame. Kai also threatened to end their 10 years friendship if Darren insisted to leave the agency.
Darren wanted to break into the China market. As Angie was embroiled in a bribery scandal earlier, her reputation in China is affected. Last year, Angie produced the film Volleyball Sweetheart <排球甜心> for Darren, but the project was halted due to Angie’s negative reputation in China.
A spokesperson of Star Ritz has responded that Darren’s decision on his contract has nothing to do Kai, and hopes that the public will not speculate.
