Leading Korean producer b.o.m. Film Production has promoted entertainment lawyer Cho Kwang-hee, who is currently chief financial officer in charge of productions, to the position of chief executive officer.

Founding head and former CEO Oh Jung-wan is now taking a less visible position as executive head of production to concentrate more on filmmaking and less on representing the company.

In addition to working on the horror film co-production series Three, b.o.m. Film Production has maintained a track record of artistically and commercially successful films since its inception in 1999. They include E J-yong's An Affair and Untold Scandal, as well as Park Jin-pyo's You Are My Sunshine, and Kim Jee-woon's The Foul King, A Tale Of Two Sisters and Cannes entry A Bittersweet Life.

Cho Kwang-hee is widely known in the local industry as a pioneering film lawyer who was responsible for working on the Korean Film Promotion Law in 1996, defending films from censorship, and dealing with copyrights issues.

He joined b.o.m. in June 2006 on a three-year contract and has been promoted effective today (March 2).

The new CEO stated that b.o.m. would be producing four to five films every two years, and is looking for a partner to invest regularly in its films. The company is producing three films this year, to be released by early 2008.

b.o.m.'s Oh will be attending the upcoming Hong Kong Asian Film Financing Forum (HAF) with director E J-yong to present his new project Homecoming.
