Han Hye-jin in 1st TV Role Since Marrying Ki Sung-yueng

Actress Han Hye-jin has returned to TV screens with a new SBS drama "Kind Words" just five months after marrying footballer Ki Sung-yueng. Han tied the knot on July 1 and has been spending her time since with her husband in England, where he plays for Premier League club Sunderland.

At a press conference to promote the drama last week, Han discussed how she hesitated before accepting the role. "I got the script on the day I left for Britain, just after we got married, and I thought about whether to take it for three months", she said. "Frankly, I wanted to focus on being a wife for a while first".

"But I talked to my husband, and he said that just as a footballer wants to be the field, so an actor wants to be on stage. He encouraged me, telling me not to worry about him and just enjoy acting", she added.

The role marks a new departure for Han as she plays a woman of questionable morals who engages in an extramarital affair.

"I still have a lot to learn about the craft of acting even though I've been doing it for over a decade. The opportunity to play this character allowed me to return sooner than I expected, and I want to see what I am capable of", she said.

The drama revolves around two married couples whose relationships are on the rocks, but who are trying to keep their respective families together. It delves into the complexities and strains of married life. The drama began airing on Monday.
