  • Han Hye-jin: 'I Challenged Myself Desperately'

    2011/02/08, Source,
    Actress Han Hye-jin will play the protagonist named Seo Jeong Eun in the KBS drama "The Thorn Birds". The MBC TV drama "Jumong", in which Han appeared by playing the character "So Seo No", finished in March, 2007, but people still remember actress Han Hye-jin (30) as "So Seo No". She could not escape the character for the past four years. After the "Jumong", she appeared in dramas such as "Terroir" and "Jejoongwon" and the movie "No Mercy", but those works were not successful enough to remove her previous image from the "Jumong", which had recorded 51.9 percent viewer ratings. But this time, she said that she felt like having a perfectly good card in her hand,...More

    A poster for MBC drama "Pasta" / Courtesy of MBC By Han Sang-hee Staff reporter The word "hallyu", or Korean wave, first appeared in the late 1990s, and it has been growing within the local entertainment industry over the years. The word, which referred to the popularity of Korean culture around the world, has now become a representative term when explaining and defining Korean culture. It refers to almost all cultural aspects_ from drama, music, food to fashion_ and as much as Korea would like to see some effects in other parts of the world, it certainly impacts the entire region of Asia,...More
  • Han Hye-jin's Song Picks

    2010/01/18, Source,
    She created a friendly image for herself, playing an energetic, curly-haired young woman in a daily family drama. She then took on the female lead role in a traditional drama, which scored a 50 percent viewership rating. She also experienced failure after appearing in a trendy drama about a professional working woman, which saw low ratings. This is who actress Han Hye-jin is. During a career which could hardly be described as a long one, there are also probably not that many actors who have played such various roles and received such a variety of responses from viewers as Han has. But what makes her so interesting is not just that she has appeared in not-so-easy-to-define dramas in the past. What is important is that she, who has appeared and worked and gone through many experiences, is still working, in the present tense. After SBS drama "Terroir" ended, she took on the role of an intelligent female detective in the film "No Mercy", which recently opened in theaters, and is currently traveling throughout the country to shoot SBS TV series "Jejoongwon". What is even more important is that she who wants to keep working and working.,...More
