Model-turned-actor Kim Sung-ryung has signed an exclusive contract with Y.one Entertainment, the agency announced Thursday.

“Kim is a well-known and praised actor,” the agency said. “We have built trust with each other, and we will provide her with unconditional support.”

Y.one Entertainment is a new agency founded by Kim Yeong-il, the CEO of the actor’s former agency, Yuleum Entertainment. The actor and the CEO first met eight years ago and have decided to continue working together.

After Kim Sung-ryung won the Miss Korea beauty pageant in 1988, she gained fame as an actor, starring in such films as “Who Saw the Dragon’s Toenail?” (1991), “Shadows in the Palace” (2007), “Mr. Xxx-Kisser” (2012) and “Believer” (2018).

She will star in the upcoming film “Call,” which is set to hit theaters this year.
