Kim Hee-ae signs with YG Entertainment
YG Entertainment, home to big-name actors like Cha Seung-won, Choi Ji-woo and Kang Dong-won, announced the news on Thursday.
The actress has worked without organizational support over her 33-year career, represented only by an agent - a rare feat in Korea’s ultra-competitive entertainment industry.
“The systematic and professional management ability of YG Entertainment was very promising,” she said. “I’m excited to have a management agency for the first time.”
The 48-year-old star made her debut in 1983 and has had a long and illustrious career as both an actress and commercial model. She has won many awards as an actress in the Korean acting scene.
