    Lee Min-jeong [Chae Ki-won/10Asia] 10: But aren't you able to use what you watched back then in your acting now? Lee Min-jeong: An actor can't experience everything so I think it's a positive thing to see what you've imagined through books in more detail. It's the same with watching other people's acting or a theater performance. So I tended to put in an effort to do as a large variety of this as possible.

    Interview with actress Hwang Woo-seul-hye Actress Hwang Woo-seul-hye [Chae Ki-won/10Asia]   My name is Hwang Woo-seul-hye. My real name is Hwang Jin-hee but when I became an actress, my mom went to the naming center and came up with this name. There were other names I could choose from but I liked the vibe 'Seul-hye' gave off. I was born on August 10, 1979 and my hometown is Seoul. I don't know about other things but I have perseverance. I'm the type that works really hard on the things I enjoy like I did with jazz dance and yoga. The biggest advantage of yoga is that it helps relieve stress and stabilizes the mind and soul.
