According to a report by the U.S. entertainment news media Variety on Wednesday (U.S. time), he will be represented by the CAA outside Korea, with his activities in Korea still under management of YG Entertainment.
Gang, a model-turned-actor, rose to fame after taking leading roles in a number of hit films and TV series, including the period action film "Kundo: Age of the Rampant" (2014) and the zombie thriller "Peninsula" (2020).
His Hollywood debut is expected to be the upcoming disaster movie "Tsunami LA," directed by Scott Mann, for which he already filmed scenes in 2019.
