Yoon Yeo-jung, the new agency that left the bomb hook is the largest entertainment CAA aggressive U.S. activity under Lee Jung-jae.
Yoon Yeo-jung, the first Korean actor to win the Best Supporting Actress Award at the U.S. Academy Awards, chose the largest entertainment in the U.S. as her new nest after quickly breaking up with Hook Entertainment, which became a entertainment bomb due to various problems from undecided issues to embezzlement.
The U.S. media Deadline reported on the 9th (local time) that the historic Oscar winner Yoon Yeo-jung, who played with the movie “Minari” (21, directed by Jung Isaac) and the Apple TV original series “Pachinco” (directed by Kogonada and Justin) has signed a contract with the largest entertainment and sports agency in the U.S. In addition, Andrew Ooi, manager of Eshelon Grant Management, who managed Yoon Yeo-jung’s U.S. work even after signing with the CAA, said he would manage the schedule.
Yoon Yeo-jung won the Best Supporting Actress Award at the 93rd U.S. Academy Awards for her role as a lovely grandmother Soon-ja who knows how to love her family better than anyone else in the independent U.S. film “Minari.” It is the first Korean male and female actor in the history of Korean films and set an all-time academy record as an Asian actor in 64 years since Umeki Miyoshi (57, directed by Joshua Logan) of the 1957Joshua Logan) in 1957. In addition, Yoon Yeo-jung won 42 awards at leading film festivals around the world, including the British Academy (BAFTA), the American Actor Union (SAG) and the American Independent Film Awards, raising the pride of Korean and Korean filmmakers.
In addition, Yoon Yeo-jung once again captured the hearts of viewers around the world with Apple TV’s original series “Pachinco” after “Minari.” Yoon Yeo-jung, who played an old seonja who had to face her past in “Pachinco,” was praised for her perfect portrayal of a character who confronts her past through her grandson Solomon Baek (Jinha) for living a quiet and peaceful life after overcoming hardships and trials.
Yoon Yeo-jung, who took a long break after finishing season 1 of “Pachinco” and left for the U.S. to film season 2 of “Pachinco,” recently ended her contract with Hook Entertainment (hereinafter referred to as “Hook”), her current agency in Korea, drawing attention.
Hook is a management that drew attention in September last year due to his romantic relationship and breakup with Kang, who is suspected of being the hidden owner of Bithumb, Korea’s second-largest virtual asset exchange. An unusual situation occurred when police raided Hook, and another actor, Lee Seung-gi, later sent a proof of contents, saying he had not received settlement related to the music for 18 years, shocking the entertainment industry. Since then, Kwon Jin-young, CEO of Hook, has caused a stir as a series of circumstances have erupted, starting with abusive language toward Lee Seung-gi and living a luxurious life using corporate cards.
Yoon Yeo-jung eventually chose to “cut off” the hook, which became a “bomb” to the point where it shook the entertainment industry. She helped Yoon Yeo-jung until she became the first Oscar trophy winner in Korea, but eventually her trust with CEO Kwon Jin-young was broken, and she could no longer maintain her relationship.
After breaking up with Hook, Yoon plans to cooperate with the CAA for the time being and focus on U.S. activities. CAA, which Yoon Yeo-jung signed a contract, is the largest entertainment and sports agency in the United States, established in 1975. World-class stars such as Steven Spielberg, actor Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Will Smith, broadcaster Oprah Winfrey, baseball player Derek Jeter, and soccer player David Beckham, and in Korea, singer BoA, actor Han Chae-young, film director Kang Je-kyu, Kim Ji-woon, Bong Joon-ho, and Lee Jae-han have tried to make inroads into foreign markets through CAA. Recently, Kang Dong-won signed a contract with the CAA and attempted to enter Hollywood, and after the “Squid Game” syndrome, Lee Jung-jae, director Hwang Dong-hyuk, and producer Kim Ji-yeon, CEO of Cyren Pictures, signed a contract with the CAA, drawing much attention. CAA has been reborn as the most influential agency in the world, partnering up to Korea’s most famous actress Yoon Yeo-jung.
