BUSAN: Finecut Launches Talent Management Wing

Leading Asian sales agent Finecut has launched a management company for talent to be called Finecut Entertainment. The Seoul sales house currently has two Korean actors in their books, 16-year-old Seo Young-joo and 25-year-old Cho Dong-in.

Finecut CEO Suh Young-joo told Variety that the expansion is a natural progression from her five years of experience managing actors prior to starting Finecut. “We’re an internationally-oriented business and we want to develop acting talent who can be active in good quality films in the global scene,” she said, adding that her long-term plan is to cast them in co-productions with other countries.

Seo also revealed that Finecut is currently in the preparation stage of several co-prods in which the two actors may be cast. The actor Seo received best actor at the 2012 Tokyo Intl. Film Festival for “Juvenile Offender” and starred in Kim Ki-duk’s “Moebius” (2013). Cho was the lead in “Stone” released earlier this year.
