MYM is also a company jointly established by Starhaus Entertainment's CEO Jang Young Hoon and Euphoria Seoul's CEO Lee Yoon Jung.

A statement issued by MYM Entertainment captured in the same report has also indicated that they will help Lee Min Ho showcase his "capabilities as an artist to the fullest."
