CJ E&M Corporation (Hangul: 씨제이이앤엠 주식회사, formerly O Media Holdings) is a South Korean entertainment and media contents company. It is a subsidiary of the CJ Group.


In 2010, O Media Holdings was founded as a merger of the following companies: CJ Media, On-Media, Mnet Media, CJ Entertainment, CJ Games, CJ Internet, and the media division of CJ O Shopping.[1] In 2011 it changed its name to CJ E&M, short for CJ Entertainment and Media.

In 2016, CJ E&M sets up its South East Asia headquarter in Hong Kong in a bid to expand the group’s major development plan in Asia. [2]

In 2018, CJ E&M established an office in Singapore to advance the company’s channel distribution and advertising sales support in the region.[3]

In 2018, it was announced that CJ E&M will be merging with CJ O Shopping, creating a new company.[4]



CJ E&M currently has seven main divisions:

  • CJ E&M Media Content Division - owner of cable television channels. Provides content for diversified platforms
  • CJ E&M Film Business Division - produce and distributor of movies and TV dramas
  • CJ E&M Music Content Division - operating the investment, production, distribution and artists management.
  • CJ E&M Convention Division - developing and producing programs and conventions
  • CJ E&M Performing Arts Division - developing and producing theatrical productions.
  • CJ E&M Animation Division - engaged in all aspects of the animation industry including planning, investing, producing, distributing, licensing, and merchandising animation content.
  • CJ E&M Media Solution Division - developing and producing marketing content and providing integrated marketing solutions


  • CJ E&M Game Division - publisher and developer of games - spun off in 2014 as an independent company named CJ Netmarble (Hangul씨제이넷마블; RRCJ Netmabul).[5]


In April 2015, CJ E&M was accused of mobilising young employees to fill the seats of its annual general meeting (AGM) of shareholders in an attempt to silence shareholders.[6]

In October 2015, CJ E&M and its US-based subsidiary CJ E&M America were sued by Seoul-based music agency DFSB Kollective for copyright infringement and violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act in the Central District Court of California, with the latter seeking to get $50 million. Responding to the suit, CJ E&M accused DFSB of being unhappy on the final decision on a similar lawsuit filed in Seoul in 2011. The first trial was set for 1 March 2016 after the court rejected CJ E&M's motion to dismiss the case.[7][8][9]

In March 2018, CJ E&M gave copyright strikes on many YouTube channels due to YouTube Creators reactions of live performances from their TV programs. The issue was later resolved by CJ E&M and YouTube where they came to an agreement to issued a warning to the YouTube Creators, giving them a chance to remove the videos related to their content.
