WM Entertainment (Hangul: WM 엔터테인먼트) is a South Korean entertainment company established in 2008 by former singer Lee Won-min (birth name: Kim Jung-soo).[1] The company is responsible for managing artists such as B1A4, Oh My Girl and ONF.[3] In April 7, 2021, the company was acquired by RBW.

History[edit]

WM Entertainment was founded in 2008 by former South Korean singer Kim Jung-soo, who formally changed his name to Lee Won-min before establishing WM Entertainment.[4]

The company was originally operated in a one-story building located in Bangbae-dong, Seocho District.[5] In August 2014, Lee Won-min purchased a six-story building located in Mangwon-dong, Mapo District named Daemyung Tower Building for KR₩4.33 billion (approximately US$3.85 million), which functions as the current headquarters for WM Entertainment.[4][6]

Almost a year after its foundation, WM Entertainment signed up Battle Shinhwa alumnus Taegoon. H-Eugene and Baby Vox Re.V member Ahn Jin-kyung joined the company in 2010.

WM Entertainment debuted their first boy group B1A4 on April 23, 2011.

WM Entertainment's first girl group Oh My Girl debuted on April 21, 2015.

WM Entertainment debuted soloist I (sister of B1A4 member Baro) on January 12, 2017.

WM's second boy group ONF debuted on August 2, 2017.

On April 7, 2021, it was announced that WM Entertainment had 70% of its shares bought by RBW, which houses idol groups such as Mamamoo, Oneus , Vromance, Onewe and Purple Kiss. WM will be merged into RBW as a subsidiary.[7]
