CJ names business, distribution exec

S. Korean studio shakes up international sector

SEOUL — South Korean studio CJ Entertainment has re-shuffled its international division, with Kathy Kim taking over as head of international business and worldwide distribution.

Kim will oversee international sales and strategy while also continuing to manage the distribution of domestic and foreign titles. She will also be in charge of marketing foreign films, including those released under CJ’s distribution deal with Paramount.

CJ previously maintained separate departments for international business and worldwide distribution departments, however the two will now operate as a single division.

Kim replaces David Shin, who joined CJ last January. Shin has launched his own Singapore-based shingle Millex Pictures and will pursue a career as a producer. He is represented by the Brant Rose Agency in Los Angeles, and has signed a first look deal with CJ on his future projects.

Kim has been with CJ since late 2005, and worked previously as managing director of set production and PR company Art Service. She also worked at Sony Pictures Korea and as an editor/producer at New York-based PBS affiliate WNYE-TV.
