Korean actor Ha Jung-woo is currently showing three of his paintings at the Seoul Open Art Fair 2010 (SOAF), the biggest art event in Korea.

The actor, who held his first individual art exhibition last month, is featured in a special exhibit titled "With ☆ Invitation" along with several Korean celebrities such as actors Uhm Tae-woong, Go Ah-sung, pop artist Nancy Lang and singer Bbaek Ga of K-pop group Koyote.

Ha's modern paintings reportedly received favorable reviews from critics for its strong colors and interesting composition.

Founded in 2006, SOAF presents artwork submitted by some 80 art galleries and 1,200 artists around the country. This year, a part of proceeds from the sales of artworks will be donated to children suffering from hereditary muscle disease at Yonsei University's Severance Hospital.

Ha, whose real name is Kim Sung-hoon, is the son of veteran Korean actor Kim Yong-geon. He first gained recognition appearing in several television dramas including "Lovers in Prague" (SBS, 2005) and "H.I.T" (MBC, 2007) alongside top Korean actress Go Hyun-jung.

He rose to stardom after playing a serial killer in suspense thriller pic "The Chaser" (2008) and solidified his movie star status with "Take Off" (2009), which became one of the most-watched films in Korean box office history.

He is currently shooting the film "The Yellow Sea", re-uniting with his "Chaser" director Na Hong-jin and co-star Kim Yun-seok.
