Claudia Kim signs with YG Entertainment
Actor Claudia Kim, known in Korea as Kim Soo-hyun, has signed with YG Entertainment, the agency announced Wednesday.
"We are happy to have signed Soo-hyun, an actor who has taken the lead in raising the value of K-culture around the globe," YG Entertainment said in a statement. "We will provide all necessary support so Soo-hyun, who already has a solid position as an actor internationally, can focus on her career."
Kim appeared in "Avengers: Age of Ultron" (2015). She was also Nagini in "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald" (2018).
After tying the knot with Matthew Shampine, former general manager of WeWork Korea, in December 2019, Kim gave birth to a baby girl last September, taking a break from work to spend time with her family.
Signing with YG Entertainment suggests the resumption of her acting career.
Other actors managed by YG Entertainment include Gang Dong-won, Kim Hee-ae, Choi Ji-woo and Jung Hye-young.
