SEOUL, Nov. 10 (Yonhap) -- Singer and actress Choi Soo-young, better known by her stage name Sooyoung from Girls' Generation, has found a new agency after leaving S.M. Entertainment last month.
Echo Global Group, which manages, among others, Daniel Henney of "Criminal Minds," announced Friday it has signed a contract with the idol-turned-actress. The company said it won't spare any efforts to support her so that she can keep growing as an actor and a singer.
Last month, she let her contract with the K-pop powerhouse lapse, causing concerns among fans that she might leave the popular eight-member act as well.
"Since she has been loved for so long as a member of Girls' Generation, we will support her activities in the group if conditions are met," said her new agency.
She is currently appearing on MBC TV's weekend series "Man in the Kitchen."
