Actor Joo Ji-hoon [KEYEAST]

Actor Joo Ji-hoon has signed with top Hallyu star Bae Yong-joon-owned entertainment firm KEYEAST, according to the agency on Wednesday.

According to a press release by KEYEAST, Joo, who is currently serving in the army to fulfill Korea's two-year mandatory military duties, finalized a contract with the firm early this month ahead of resuming his acting career in November when he is set to be discharged.

KEYEAST said it plans to support Joo in his future activities both at home and overseas by cooperating with its Japanese subsidiary Digital Adventure (DA) as well as air various promotional events on Asian entertainment cable channel DATV.

KEYEAST manages the career of numerous famous actors and actresses including Kim Hyun-joong, Lee Na-young, Choi Kang-hee, Lee Bo-yeong, Lee Ji-ah, Hong Soo-hyeon, Wang Ji-hye and So I-hyeon.

Joo, 28, started out as a model and later became popular in Korea as well as China and Japan through his debut role in 2006 hit TV series "Princess Hours".

Since then he has starred in several other notable works including the drama "Devil" (KBS, 2007), films "Antique" (2008) and "The Naked Kitchen" (2009), and musical "Don Juan" (2009).

He halted his career last April however, after receiving a six-month jail term suspended for a year along with 120 hours of community service for illegal drug use.
