[HanCinema's News] Family Relationship Between Ha Ji-won and Jeon Tae-soo Clarified


Content warning: The following text contains mention of depression.

With the two-year anniversary of Jeon Tae-soo's death lingering in the news, some confusion has set in among readers about how Ha Ji-won and Jeon Tae-soo are related. Though Jeon Tae-soo is known as Ha Ji-won's younger brother, they have different surnames.

The answer is that Ha Ji-won is not in fact the real name of the actress. This is her performing name, with her actual name being Jeon Hae-rim. Jeon Tae-soo is the real name of her brother, however. Their family contains three sisters and one brother. Ha Ji-won is the second sister, while Jeon Tae-soo was the baby of the family.

Jeon Tae-soo was known to be suffering from depression in the time leading up to his death. However, he had been thought to be in recovery and Haewadal Entertainment, the same agency that represents Ha Ji-won, had been preparing for his comeback. Though Jeon Tae-soo never achieved the fame of his sister he did have notable moments in his career, with major supporting roles in "It's Okay, Daddy" and "The Daughter of the Emperor".
