She wore a low cut silver-white gown and matched it with Panthère de Cartier jewellery including necklace, bracelet and ring that are worth more than NT$23million. Her beauty astonished everyone when she appeared. Ha Ji Won revealed that she really likes the Panthère de Cartier collection.

After completing a photoshoot for Vogue magazine yesterday, Ha Ji Won moved from The Westin Taipei Hotel to Le Meridien Taipei Hotel at Xinyi District. She is continuing her pictorial shoot today. Famous photographer Terence Huang Tian Ren is in charged of the pictorial shoot. At noon, the crew had started to blow up balloons and decorate a romantic setting in front of the hotel. The pictorial shoot begun after Ha Ji Won finished preparing her looks for the pictorial shoot.
A little while later, Ha Ji Won appeared as a bunny girl, wearing a little black dress, showing her beautiful shoulders and back. She pulled a bunch of balloons and walked towards the front along the thicket beside the hotel. Her mood seemed to be not bad as she was smiling happily. Due to the strong winds today, she who is very slim had difficulty pulling the balloons and needed the staff to lend her some support. Ha Ji Won who has great acting skills was only required to walk back and forth twice as the photographer was satisfied and shouted ‘OK’. The crew then moved back into the hotel to continue the pictorial shoot. Fans who were waiting at the set fought to play with the balloons that were held by Ha Ji Won and took turns to take pictures. The atmosphere was happy.
During shooting breaks, her assistant immediately handed her a jacket to keep her out of the cold.

It’s a little bit late but October 23 still our big day as it represents our 1023 fandom to Ha Ji Won. So, we’d like to wish you all the best, Angels. Have a happy (belated) 1023 Day :D
During her fanmeet, she saw an elderly among the audience. As you may guess, our amazing yeoja helped the lady herself. What a nice gesture of our girl! Proud of her!
Ha Ji Won arrived in Taiwan yesterday for a fanmeet.
36-year old Ha Ji Won debuted when she was in her final year of high school. She has entered the entertainment industry for nearly 20 years and is capable of playing a wide range of different characters. She has no difficulty playing characters from a high school student to a female warrior, and is one of the very female action actresses in South Korea. She who is full of toughness on screen is personally very feminine. She self-praised, “Other than acting, I am very feminine in every minute and every second.” Once I fall in love, I will become a little woman. If that person jokes, she will definitely respond, “I will purposely give a very exaggerated response!”
She debuted at quite an early age and has wasted her time as a young girl, “I do not have freedom in having a boyfriend, going shopping and I have never participated in any blind date activities. I am well-behaved and obeys my parent’s words. I want to rebel now.” The rebel that she was referring to is to get away from her manager and parents, and travel alone as a backpacker in Europe, “But I still have not done it despite having this thought for 5 years.”
Recently an accident happened during a concert in South Korea causing more than 10 people to lose their lives. Upon hearing this question, Ha Ji Won stopped smiling and looked serious but did not answer the question (according to other articles, the Taiwanese staff stopped the reporters from asking, very likely because it is a sensitive topic or the organizers do not want the focus to be diverted). She only returned her smile after the staff switched the topic to her recent movie that she filmed with Ha Jung Woo.

[Taiwan Interview-2] Often Receive Injury Treatments While Filming, Ha Ji Won: Hope Future Husband Can Gently Hug Me
And here is another lovely interview of our amazing yeoja in Taiwan… If u know what we mean, Angels :D…
36-year old Ha Ji Won who brought the character ‘Empress Ki’ to life through her acting came to Taiwan for a fanmeet. She had a media interview in the afternoon of October 18. Since her debut, she has been filming a lot of action scenes, therefore it is unavoidable to sustain injuries all over her body. Ha Ji Won laughingly said, “I always receive treatments for injuries while filming, but action scene has its charm, thus I keep trying it.” When she heard the reporter’s question on whether she would worry that her future husband would mind the scars on her body, Ha Ji Won immediately laughed and said, “I hope my future husband can tenderly hug me and love my wounds as well.”
Ha Ji Won who has accumulated extremely strong popularity and results over many years since her debut revealed that due to her debut when she was 19 years old, it is regrettable that since then she does not really dare to have a boyfriend. “I feel that at that time I had lost some freedom. There was a lack of many experiences for the feelings of a young girl. I have never participated in group blind dates. Ah, I really want to take part in it.” When the empress’s young girl’s heart broke out, she looked very cute.
Ha Ji Won enjoys acting action scenes a lot. She hopes that her future husband will love her wounds as well.
Ha Ji Won said that there are characters from the story that accompany her in life when she acts, but it is only when filming ends, she will start to think, “It is not bad too if I have a boyfriend!” Ha Ji Won revealed that she likes someone who has a sense of humor, but she has never confessed to anyone since she was born because, “I am very very timid towards confessions.” She can only confess in dramas and movies.
Ha Ji Won admits that there are many things that she does not know how to do and hopes that her future other half is a knowledgeable person. Recently she has completed the filming of ‘Chronicle of a Blood Merchant’ with Ha Jung Woo. She said that the filming process with him is quite comfortable and fun. Their chemistry is good too. She frankly said. “He is considered to be close to my ideal type, because I just mentioned that I like someone who is humorous.”
For this Taiwan fanmeet, Ha Ji Won had already given an advance announcement that she will be bringing dance performances. There will be sexy and cute styles. She shyly said, “Other than dancing when I am acting, I am actually not confident in dancing. I hope I will not disappoint everyone!” Previously during filming breaks, she busily practised dancing with her ipad.

During her visit to Taiwan, our amazng yeoja, Ha Ji Won, has lots interview, we’d like to share some of it. Enjoy, Angels! :D
This is why I came to Taiwan again after nearly seven years, Taiwan fans are very enthusiastic, giving me so much love. And although I’m in Korea, I receive news from Taiwan fans almost everyday!
Q: When 《Empress Ki》 was being broadcast in Taiwan, its ratings beat that of the local dramas for many times, did you know about this?
HJW: I have heard this news in Korea, I have a lot of friends or fans around the community, like Instagram, Weibo, who congratulated me. That’s why I really wanted to come to Taiwan, because I was very happy.
HJW: Seung Nyang has lived through many difficult things, which includes political struggle, or even love! But when she encountered these difficulties, she was fearless, intelligent, had wisdom, and did not panic to solve them, this is something I would like to learn from her; Then, the thing we’re not the same is…she’s an Empress, but I’m (laughs). To be able to portray this role is a very special and fun experience. And also, Seung Nyang is a very lonely woman, but in real life, I’m a happy person. Ah…also the Seung Nyang in Ta Hwan’s (Yuan Emperor) illusions and I are very similar.
Q: Continuously starring in many dramas, which do you prefer, period or modern?
HJW: I prefer to film period dramas, because it’s more fun, moreover, while filming a historical drama, I can also learn more about history. It makes me feel the feeling of time traveling.
Q: This time, in 《Empress Ki》, you unfortunately did not sing an OST, in the future, do you have plans of making an album or singles?
HJW: Basically, my singing strength does not reach the standards…even though I have an experience of singing an OST in the past, but the reason why I challenged myself to sing was because I was in the starring role, I would be able to show the character’s emotions more clearly. But making an album…it would be a difficult thing to do.
Q: The image that Ha Ji Won usually gives to people is someone who’s efficient in both brainy and brawny activities, but how is your private personality?
HJW: Compared to my friends of my peer, I’m a bit more childish…Everyday, the distressing thing is thinking of what to do to entertain myself. Even during filming scenes, I would also request the other actors to do some imitation!
Q: In Korea, you’re referred to as “The Chameleon” for having invested too much in dramatic roles, is it difficult to be detached from the experience?
HJW: After the end of a drama, I give myself some time to say goodbye to the role. If I film a new drama immediately, I would feel very contradictory. There has been a time when I acted in a drama soon after finishing one, and I had to seek a psychiatrist for counseling and advice.
Q: This time, for the Taiwan fan meeting, are you impressed by the fans?
HJW: I really did not expect that so many fans would come to pick me up at the airport, there was a fan wearing exactly the same clothing as Seung Nyang’s, it really made me surprised. There were also many cameras, I’ve never come across such a case! Then, I had foot massage, and I immediately saw a TV broadcast showing the way I eat.
Q: Did you prepare something that would surprise the fans at the fan meeting? For instance, speaking the Busan dialect or trying to speak the Taiwanese language?
HJW: You can teach me to say it (Ha Ji Won has learned “來來來，妳來，妳來”Come, you come here, “大家好” Hello, everyone, “我是河智苑” I’m Ha Ji Won in Taiwanese.)
Q: Nowadays, there are many actors who exceed their limits and work as directors, do you want to film your own (movie)?
HJW: Any actor will think about this question…but I really prefer filming, whether I’ll be a director in the future or not, I’m not sure. But now, there are still many challenging roles which I would like to take, so I will focus on acting.
