The agency, called Starhaus China, will partner with the Huayi Brothers in various business ventures, according to the Korean Times.

Huayi was the company that previously supported Lee’s concerts and fan activities in China.

The deal was concluded in the wake of the success of Lee’s TV drama “The Heirs,” which attracted more than 160 million viewers on Youku, one of China’s biggest streaming sites.

Lee’s previous drama, “City Hunter,” was also a hit in China.
