Actor Kim Ye-won has signed with the agency Artist Company, according to a source from the entertainment industry on Tuesday.

The source told Ilgan Sports, an affiliate of the Korea JoongAng Daily, that, “After her contract with JYP Entertainment ended, she began a search [for a new agency] and [eventually] signed an exclusive contract with Artist Company.”

Kim’s contract with JYP Entertainment ended after three years with the company this May.

Her new agency is home to well-known actors such as Jung Woo-sung, Ha Jung-woo and Lee Jung-jae.

Lee made her debut in 2008 with a role in the film “Garoojigi,” and has since appeared in the 2011 hit film “Sunny,” as well as many TV dramas such as SBS’ “Jealousy Incarnate” (2016) and “Suspicious Partner” (2017).

Meanwhile, she has been active as a radio DJ hosting KBS Cool FM’s show, titled “Kim Ye-won’s Heart-Fluttering Night,” which airs at 12 a.m. every night.
