Singer-actress Son Dam-bi is holding talks to join celebrated actor and businessman Bae Yong-joon’s talent agency, KeyEast Entertainment, though the company said Wednesday that “nothing has been confirmed yet.”

Son amicably separated from her agency of 10 years, Pledis Entertainment, Tuesday.

“Son Dam-bi was with Pledis Entertainment for 10 happy and enjoyable years, when including her trainee period,” said Son’s former agency, likening her to family. “We feel really sorry (to see her go), but since her contract terminated, we decided to amicably go our separate ways after some deliberation.”

Son, 31, debuted her musical career, including her breakthrough single “Crazy” in 2008, under Pledis Entertainment. She transitioned to acting and became one of the company’s most lucrative stars, together with K-pop girl group After School.

“We have had a few rounds of meetings with Son Dam-bi, but nothing has concretely been decided yet,” Bae’s KeyEast agency was quoted by local media as saying.

KeyEast currently manages high-profile actors Kim Soo-hyun, Im Soo-jung, Han Ye-seul, Kim Hyun-joong and Park Seo-joon, among others.
