First Attempt of IOK
At first, B.I rejected the offer, as he felt a significant burden on the idea of starting full activities at the moment. He stated that it was too early for him to accept the job.
However, the agency convinced B.I.
As an executive director, the company’s goal in appointing B.I is to fulfill the corporate’s social responsibility. The other executives and staff are aware that some people remained critical about his controversy.
However, IOK Company is considering the talent of B.I. The company plans to support him so he can be active again. They will help him to be an upright member of society and help cultivate his talent.
During the hiatus
B.I is expected to demonstrate his abilities that will inspire the young generation.
During his hiatus, he regularly volunteered on social works and donated for the community. At the same time, he did not neglect his plans to become an active producer while spending time self-reflecting.
In terms of individual promotions, the company plans to consider this through a discussion. Meanwhile, Kim Han Bin’s specific activities are currently on hold.
