Actor Kim Bum is making an impression on audiences these days with his role as the younger version of the character played by actor Song Seung-hun in the MBC TV drama, “East of Eden.” Soon, Kim Bum will be impressing audiences in Japan as well–the actor recently signed a contract with a Japanese management agency.
Kim Bum’s agency in Korea, Eyagi Entertainment, announced that Kim Bum just signed with Glory Entertainment in Japan, which is owned by the Glory Group, which also has ties to a major movie production company.
“There are not many Kim Bum productions in Japan, but he is still very popular in Japan,” said a representative of Glory Entertainment. “We believe in the star quality that Kim Bum has, which is why we signed him.”
Kim Bum is planning to work in both Korea and Japan. In December, the actor is set to star in the KBS 2TV drama, “Boys over Flowers.”
