Director Lee Na-jeong signs with U.S. production company Brillstein Entertainment
Director Lee Na-jeong, who's behind the hit TV drama series “Mine” (2021), has signed with Brillstein Entertainment, a U.S. production company that not only handles Hollywood superstars like Adam Sandler and Brad Pitt but also big name directors as well as writers.
Fine Cut, an overseas distribution company in Korea announced the news on Wednesday, adding that Brillstein Entertainment’s manager Missy Malkin praised Lee’s potentials and directing skills after watching “Mine,” “recommending Lee to the Hollywood production company.” The drama is available on Netflix.
Lee is considered one of Korea’s leading female directors. She directed “Love Alarm” (2019), the first Netflix Original series in Korea, which is based on Chon Kye-young’s successful webtoon of the same name. She also directed “Snowy Road” (2015), which aired on KBS as a Prix Italia-winning drama miniseries.
