Former Wonder Girls member Woo Hye-rim signs with Wave Entertainment
Former Wonder Girls member Woo Hye-rim signed an exclusive contract with Wave Entertainment, the agency said Monday.
Wave Entertainment is an entertainment agency co-founded by TV personalities Tyler Rasch and Julian Quintart. Quintart and Rasch are known for their appearance in the show “Abnormal Summit” (2014–17), a talk show featuring foreigners living in Korea discussing Korean society, politics, economy and culture.
Woo will be the agency’s first Korean artist, the agency said.
“We would like to break away from the misunderstanding that only foreigners are allowed to sign with the agency,” Wave Entertainment said in a press release Monday, adding that the agency plans to become an all-around entertainment agency.
“We will send endless support to Woo Hye-rim, who has been constantly challenging herself as a writer, translator and actor after being active as a member of [Wonder Girls],” the agency added.
“I’m foremost excited to meet my new agency,” Woo said in a press release. “I will be showing a more improved side of myself under the new agency.”
Woo debuted as a member of Wonder Girls in 2010 under JYP Entertainment. After Wonder Girls halted its activities in 2017, Woo has been active as a translator, writer, actor and more.
