Korean actor Ko Soo has signed with an entertainment company that manages the careers of Hallyu stars Lee Byung-hun and Han Hyo-joo, according to a press release on Monday.

BH Entertainment confirmed that Ko signed an exclusive contract with the company in May. "Ko is the kind of actor that is able to show both the bright and dark side through his acting. We also have high expectations for him since he is an actor who can express his true emotions," an official from the agency was quoted as saying.

Ko first started out in the entertainment industry with an appearance in the music video "Letter" by singer Position in 1998 and has since appeared in numerous dramas and films. His most notable roles include the TV series "Piano" and "Will it Snow for Christmas?" and movies "Some" and "White Night."

The actor last starred in the action flick "Haunters" alongside actor Gang Dong-won which was sold to several countries including Thailand, Taiwan, Malaysia, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. The film also brought in a high number of advance ticket sales and attracted over one million viewers within a week of its premiere in November of last year.

Ko is currently working on a war flick titled "Frontline," helmed by director Jang Hoon, which tells of the war during 1953 where South Korean soldiers are captured by the North as prisoners of war while they plot against their enemies to escape.
The film, which also stars Korean actor Shin Ha-kyun, is set to be released this summer.
