      I don’t know a company he is in but wiki says he is a carrer famous actor.

      Song made his acting debut in the 2008 period film A Frozen Flower. The following year, he appeared in the couple-swapping segment “Believe in the Moment” of omnibus Five Senses of Eros and continued to take on small but notable roles in Triple and Will It Snow For Christmas?. Furthermore, he became a regular host of KBS’s Friday music program Music Bank from 2009 to 2010 and a cast member on SBS’ variety show Running Man from 2010 to 2011. After appearing in the 2010 medical drama OB/GYN Doctors,[1] and animal movie sequel Hearty Paws 2,[2] Song published the book Beautiful Skin Project, a bestselling health and beauty guide for men.[3] Eventually, it was the role of an 18th century Joseon-era rich, indolent playboy in the 2010 fusion period drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal, that made Song shoot to stardom along with the rest of the young cast.[4][5]

      In late 2010, Song Joong-ki went on a bicycling tour around Sydney, Australia, which aired two episodes on TV via ELLE, an offshoot of the eponymous fashion magazine. Moreover, a TV special of the actor’s trip to Japan entitled I’m Real: Song Joong-ki aired two parts in early 2011.[6] In 2011, the actor and MC was commended for his smooth hosting skills on jTBC audition program Made in U.

      Song was cast as a jobless deadbeat in the 2011 romantic comedy Penny Pinchers.[7][8] His performance was described as going seamlessly from slapstick comedy to a “charismatic”, “swoon-worthy leading man with a viable presence”.[9] Although his stint on Deep Rooted Tree was only four episodes long, critics praised Song’s portrayal of the young king Sejong, calling it a portrayal of a genius who “realizes the futility of power early in life” and hides in his books to cope with growing up under the rule of his tyrannical father Taejong.[10][11]

      For the MBC program Tears of the Earth, which focuses on pressing environmental issues on the planet, Song narrated the six-part documentary Tears of the Antarctic, then donated his entire salary to charity.[12][13] He reprised his role as narrator when the series was re-edited and released in theaters as Emperor Penguins Peng-yi and Som-yi.[14][15][16]

      From April to July 2012, Song went on a six-country tour entitled Song Joong-ki Asia Fan Meeting Tour – THRILL & LOVE, holding fan meetings in Thailand, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Seoul, South Korea.[17][18][19][20]

      Song Joong-ki played the title character in the fantasy romance thriller A Werewolf Boy, which premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival.[21][22][23] In preparation for his role, Song had watched nature documentaries and observed stray dogs on the streets to learn how to mime and imitate the body movements of an animal.[24] Furthermore, he repeatedly watched Gollum in The Lord of the Rings, as well as Matt Reeves’ 2010 vampire flick Let Me In and Tim Burton’s 1990 romantic fantasy Edward Scissorhands.[25][26]

      Although his performances in the successful dramas Sungkyunkwan Scandal and Deep Rooted Tree were praised, it took until the 2012 drama Nice Guy for him to portray the leading character in a drama, a role for which he has received rave reviews.[27][28]

    How Do I Become A Teenage Model? I’m 14 years old, I have had some modeling experience and I was wondering how I can become a teenage model. I first got the idea from people that would ask me or tell me “Are you a model or you should be a model.” Can someone please help me with this it would mean the world to me. Thankyou 🙂

      I get those remarks, too!

      Since I’ve had some Charm & Poise schooling and have modeled a few times for hair and extras in movies. Those training I’ve had, are something I’ll never forget, like riding a bike. I carry myself like I did then, and people thought I just practice in front of a mirror everyday.

      Remember, if you can’t be a model, you can ‘look like one, walk like one, and dress like one.’

      In Vogue UK, now hires 13-14 year old models. But there’s a documentary “Girl Model” too young, too thin on Vogue models, shown at SXSW and the Toronto International Film festival, highlights the search and scouting of young girls in the modeling industry. Teen models have no clue what they’re getting themselves into. They’re naive. They get free food, free alcohol, they are forced into prostitution, too many abuses, sexual, physical, emotional you just can’t believe.

      The best way to deal with modeling agencies is by contacting your area that is local and have a good record through the Better Business Bureau, not online. I went to a poise & charm school, back in the 70’s, and wasted my money because they didn’t promise they’ll give me a job, but I learned something from it. I learned how to be poise, presentable, and walk like a model, and that is not something you won’t ever forget, to look like a model. They are now one of the biggest talent agencies in my town for children.

      There are many predators out there, that attract many people of all sexes, ages, and demographic.

      Sending out photos of wannabes, is like sending your profiles to people in jail, you don’t know them, AND YOU just can’t trust everyone, this is the world wide web, that can attract the whole world: your address and everything about YOU.

      Craigslist is a good reputable website, but they get a bad rap because of what ONE PERSON did or done. Same scenario.

      Here’s one that was posted on Craigslist . . . about modeling career, I thought about you. Please read:

      Sleezy modeling agents pay scouts very well to bring them girls who will wind up in one or two scenarios.; 1) pay $500 for a photo shoot with a photographer from LA. Just in time to meet big shots from Nike,Adidas,MGM,Nordstrom, & Disney (this bunch will not be there); or 2) come to a meeting at a hotel and get to pay over $1500 for the same crap. WORSE YET if the one from Vegas (ACT) comes again selling a modeling course for $4900 including a ‘meet the famous’ function where you get trained in Washington once a month – don’t do it people. Also most EXPO events are just recruiting events for schools. Wakey, wakey kiddos. btw SCHOOLS are only bad if they lie to you or imply guaranteed placement. Scouts may be legitimate if you don’t have to pay big bucks for anything. Watch out for the scammers on the radio telling young girls about big opportunities – they may be one of the big modeling schools that recently closed mid classes and now wants another chance at your money. They recruit a bunch of wannabees then tell each one ‘you are the only one we want’ – then it gets worse if you are dumb.
