Kim Bum Signs with Japanese Agency


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."

i didn't know Kim Bum had an accident during the
filming of East of Eden. He was hit by a stuntman
on the chin during a scene.
He had 12 stitches under his chin.
poor Kim Bum.

it was worth it i guess, coz
his acting was well recognized by the viewers.

Hwaiting, Kim Bum.

Japan tags Kim Bum as a Hallyu up-and-comer


This is a bit of a step up for Kim Bum (East of Eden). After all, he has got a lot of buzz going around him these days, but he’s still very new for this kind of attention.

On December 21 and 29, Kim will be featured in a two-part documentary about Hallyu stars in Japan, which airs on TBS. A-listers like Bae Yong-joon (Winter Sonata) and Lee Byung-heon (The Good, The Bad, The Weird) have been singled out for mention in the past, but it’s pretty early in Kim Bum’s career to be considered an international Hallyu star. He’s not there yet, but the inclusion is promising in terms of his crossover appeal. (Personally, I think he really struck gold with a combination of talent, luck, and very shrewd timing/planning by his management.)

The program shows Kim Bum as he prepared earlier this year for his first Japanese fanmeeting in October, and continues following him afterward. To build his career in Japan, Kim has signed with a Japanese management company to handle his activities there; the company plans to launch a full-scale promotional blitz when he finishes filming for KBS’s Boys Before Flowers.

Behind the scenes with Kim Bum in New Caledonia

Well, the cast of Boys Before Flowers took its working trip to New Caledonia, an island in the South Pacific, back more than a month ago. That means these newly released photos aren’t exactly new, per se, but they are new to us.

Actor Kim Bum posted them on his mini-homepage on the 16th, and the photos show mostly behind-the-scenes shots of Kim while prepping for scenes on the drama.

The hype over Boys Before Flowers is partly a result of audience reaction to the highly anticipated series, but I also think that the production has been very clever in its promotion. Even the lead-up to the drama’s premiere was timed to carefully build anticipation, and rather than release information all at once, they’ve been slowly but steadily releasing information, here and there, in bits and pieces, so as to keep the public’s appetite whetted for more.

In that regard, I think it’s working pretty well. Even though the drama has already begun, they’re making sure to keep interest high in between episodes, even though I’m pretty sure interest would remain high even without doing anything at all. But who am I to complain?

Enjoy.
