Jang Gyu-ri, who was a key member of the idol girl group fromis_9, has signed an exclusive contract with her new agency Just Entertainment. Jang Gyu-ri has revised her career from an idol to an actress and is preparing to engage in active acting activities in earnest.
Jang Gyu-ri, who debuted as a member of girl group fromis_9 through Mnet’s girl group survival project “Idol School” in 2017, has shown her potential as an actress by continuously challenging acting activities and appearing in tvN’s “It’s Okay To Not Be Okay” and tvN D web drama “An Introduction to Dating.”
Recently, she has been cast as Tae Cho-hee for SBS’ new Monday-Tuesday drama “Cheer Up” and is currently in the filming process.
Since she decided to pursue an acting career, she reportedly expressed her need for an agency with a lot of experience in actor activities and smooth communication in related areas to help her build her discography.
Just Entertainment, which Jang Gyu-ri signed with, was established in 2020 by experts with more than 10 years of experience in Korea’s leading management companies. This agency is currently working with well-known actors including Yoon Kye-sang, Kim Sang-ho, Gil Hae-yeon, Jung Woong-in, Park Ji-hwan, Kim Shin-rok, Kim Joo-ryeong, Oh Seung-hoon, and Seo Ji-hye.
On the morning of August 29th, Just Entertainment released Jang Gyu-ri’s greeting through its Instagram. “I’m going to be with Just Entertainment. I think I will have the chance to meet everyone in various ways as an actress in the future. Please take good care of me and look forward to my activities in the future,” she said, adding how she is currently filming a drama.
Regarding the recruitment of Jang Gyu-ri, Lee Chang-oh, CEO of Just Entertainment, said, “We appreciate Jang Gyu-ri’s potential. I hope that she can show her ability by building up her experience as an actress as well as showing her lovely charm that the public is already familiar with.”
He added, “As a reliable partner, we will also show our support for actress Jang Gyu-ri to continue her better performance on various platforms such as dramas, movies, and OTT following ‘Cheer Up’, so please look forward to and pay attention to actress Jang Gyu-ri’s future move.”
Jang Gyu-ri is preparing to fly farther and higher with her new agency. Her new drama, SBS’s “Cheer Up,” is a hot and cool campus mystery romantic comedy about young people of a college cheering squad that is collapsing behind the mask of its brilliant history, and Jang Gyu-ri plays Tae Cho-hee, vice-leader of Yeon-hee University’s cheering squad.
