Japanese Media: Kim Ha-neul More Popular than Choi Ji-woo

2005/05/27 Source

The major Japanese newspaper Sports Hochi published an interview with actress Kim Ha-neul on May 27, saying she has become more popular in Japan than fellow "hallyu" actress Choi Ji-woo. Kim's latest comedy movie, "Too Beautiful To Lie", opens in Japan May 28.

The newspaper quoted Kim as saying that her co-star in the movie, Gang Dong-won, who is Kim's junior, "acted in accordance with his personality", and that actors Lee Byung-hun and Song Seung-heon, Kim's previous co-stars, became popular in Japan thanks to their acting skills.

"My character receives an impressive marriage proposal from a man in the movie. I personally like such heart-moving proposals because they are sincere", said Kim in her interview.

Sports Hochi also wrote that Kim likes "chankonabe" (a Japanese dish popular with sumo wrestlers) and enjoys strolling in Shibuya.
