I'm here to ask a question, what do 실장 and 팀장 mean in a company scale like celebrity agency?
Thanks in advance

Many companies have often changed positions with overlapping positions such as "Manager" and "Manager" to "Team Leader."
It's hard to know for sure unless someone is actually working at the company. And also it is not clear because each company has different jobs depending on their positions.
Department Manager(실장) will be involved in all tasks of the agency, and the Team Leader(팀장) will manage one of them.
실장 is a corporate rank, whereas 팀장 is more of a business title. Traditionally, Korean conglomerates do not include the position 실장 in their corporate hierarchy but I've heard of smaller firms, e.g. celebrity agencies as you point, that do. 실장 should fall in somewhere between 차장 and 부장, both a team lead or 팀장 role.
