Shin Se Kyung has signed with IU’s agency. With this, IU’s agency, which had always been a one-person agency, will now open a new chapter.
Recently, Shin signed an exclusive contract with EDAM Entertainment, also known as “IU’s agency.”
For the past 19 years, Shin had been affiliated with actor-specific company Namoo Actors. However, after working together for nearly two decades, the actress and the company decided to part ways amicably. And after much consideration, Shin joined hands with EDAM.
EDAM was founded in December 2019 as a subsidiary of Kakao M. The company has only managed one artist, IU. Soon after her debut, the singer joined EDAM. Though it wasn’t intended, the company was known as a one-person agency. But starting with Shin’s joining, EDAM plans to become a bigger agency by recruiting more actors.
Shin made her debut in 1998 with the poster of Seo Taiji’s poster for the 5th album. Since then, she became a top actress of her age group, starring in works like High Kick Through the Roof, Six Flying Dragons, Run On. She opened her YouTube channel in 2018 and has 1.25 million subscribers.
