Martin Smith, one of the top five contestant groups from the last season of Mnet’s popular music competition show “Superstar K,” has been signed by V Entertainment, according to the management agency Monday.

“Martin Smith will be kicking off official promotional activities under the company’s management,” said V Entertainment. “The group will be unveiling its new, diverse content on both broadcast and online outlets,” it added.
