Hyeri of Girl's Day has found a new home in what to be revealed as a start-up agency. 

Though it has been previously reported that the singer-actress has signed with an independent acting agency, it was only on April 30, Tuesday, that the firm's identity was unveiled.

Creative Group ING, primarily known as an advertising firm, is expanding their business, with Hyeri as the first artist that they will manage. 

“Hyeri is an artist loved by the public regardless of age and gender, and she has high potential in multiple areas such as music, entertainment, dramas, movies, etc. As Hyeri agrees with our new vision and passion, we give her our full support by creating a dedicated team composed of experienced staff to help her in her activities," the company said in a statement.

The 24-year-old star's signing up with a new company comes a quarter after Girl's Day's exclusive contract with Dream T Entertainment has already expired. She was the last among the four members of the group to sign with an agency specializing in acting.

Though Dream T clarified that the girl group will not be disbanding, all four will now focus first on their respective acting careers.

Hyeri first debuted as a Girl's Day member in 2010. She and Yura replaced former members Jiin and Jiun. The group is known for the hits "Expectation," "Something," and "Female President," among others.

The Girl's Day maknae official foray into acting was her stint on the weekend drama, "Tasty Life." She has since landed roles in other TV drama series like "Hyde, Jekyll, Me," and "Schoolgirl Detectives."

She further secured her spot in the acting industry with her lead role in the highly-acclaimed "Reply 1988." The drama is considered as one of the most-viewed dramas in Korea's cable TV history.

Hyeri made her film debut through 2017's "Monstrum." She is set to return to the big screen this year with "Dempsey Roll: Confessions." Co-starring Uhm Tae Goo, the film will follow the story of a former boxing professional returning to the scene. 

As for her small screen comeback, reports have surfaced last March that she is positively considering a role in the TVN project, "Miss Lee." Her role will be a bookkeeper-turned-CEO of a certain company. 

She last appeared in the MBC police drama, "Two Cops," alongside actor Jo Jung Suk.
