In an official press release from the talent management company on January 26, they announced, “After a series of discussions, we have agreed to end our management business with actress Jo Bo-ah, who has been with us for the past 10 years.”
Jo Bo-ah made her small-screen debut in 2011 with a cameo role in the JTBC daily sitcom Living Among the Rich. Just a year later, she landed her first major role in the tvN series Shut Up Flower Boy Band (2012). Throughout her career, the 29-year-old star has won three Best New Actress awards and two Excellence awards, proving her remarkable talent in the field of acting. Most recently, Jo received a lot of love for her role in tvN’s romantic-fantasy series Tale of the Nine Tailed, where she starred alongside in-demand actors Lee Dong-wook (Strangers from Hell) and Kim Bum (Mrs. Cop 2).
