SEOUL — Korean film sales agent, Finecut has launched Writers Agency of Finecut, a specialist talent management agency for scriptwriters.

WAF has inked contracts with 10 scriptwriters including Kwon Sung-hwi (“As One”), Kim Soo-kyoung (“Big Match”) and Min Ye-ji (“Late Autumn”).

CEO, Suh Youngjoo said the agency will support and promote its scriptwriters using the global network the company has established more than a decade as one of Asia’s leading sales agents.

Suh said that she aims for the company to become a “total entertainment agency.” Recently Finecut also launched a talent management agency for on-screen talent.

Finecut started out as Cineclick Asia, a Seoul-based independent overseas sales company some 14 years ago. 

Over the years, it has grown into one of Asia’s most important vendors forging partnerships with distributor N.E.W and art house directors such as Kim Ki-duk. Suh and Finecut were also co-producers on Argentinian director Pablo Trapero’s “Carancho.”
