Coach Lee Myung-woo signed a contract with the Creative Artists Agency (CAA), the largest entertainment and sports agency in the United States.
Director Lee Myung-woo is a star director who has become a trusted brand in both work performance and box office success, going back and forth between various genres such as One Day, Fiery Priest, and Punch. After receiving a love call from a U.S. agency based on his proven directing capabilities, he plans to work with CAA around the world.
CAA is the largest entertainment agency in the United States, including actors Brad Pitt, Tom Hanks, Merrill Streep, George Clooney, Beyonce, Nora Jones, Cardi B and Justin Bieber. Recently, as the Korean entertainment industry has been in the spotlight around the world, it is also taking the lead in recruiting key creators by joining hands with star director Lee Myung-woo.
Director Lee Myung-woo, who signed a contract with CAA, was recognized for his work and popularity by being named at leading domestic and foreign awards such as the 2019 Korea Broadcasting Awards, the 2019 Tokyo Drama Awards, and the 2019 Seoul Drama Awards. In 2020, he participated in the establishment of THE STUDIOM, a drama production company, and proved his capabilities once again through the founding drama One Day (starring Kim Soo-hyun, Cha Seung-won / production: Green Bam Media, The StudioM, Gold Medalist).
In particular, Coupang's OTT (online video platform) Coupang Play's first original, "One Day" is a remake of the British BBC drama "Criminal Justice," which recorded high interest and achievements not only in Korea but also abroad. Kim Soo-hyun and Cha Seung-won's immersive acting and director Lee Myung-woo's heavy yet tense delicate directing received a lot of favorable reviews from both drama officials and viewers.
Starting with the drama One Day, The Studio M, led by the "Lee Myung-woo Division," plans to recruit competent creators such as directors and writers to strengthen its multi-production system to combine global projects with major domestic and overseas producers.
Director Lee Myung-woo is currently preparing a story about the musical life of Korean Americans based on true stories with CAA. The Studio M said director Lee Myung-woo's activities in the U.S. will be accompanied by B&C contents.
