Ha Ji Won

5 reasons Ha Ji Won is a top K-drama actress to look up to


There is always more to the actors behind our movies and dramas than we see, which is why it can be so fun to learn more about them. With The Huntresses, starring Ha Ji Won, Kang Ye Won, and Son Ga In coming to DramaFever this weekend, here are 5 admirable facts you should know about the amazing leading lady, Ha Ji Won!

1. She fully believes in character immersion.

Ji Won takes the roles of her characters so seriously that she has said she “becomes uncomfortable with how much she can disappear into her role.” As part of that, she feels what her character does, including love, sadness, and anger. After filming the movie Sector 7, she stated that she had to see a therapist because she “couldn’t recover from the fate of her character in the movie.” Talk about intense!

2. She loves to spend her birthday with fans.

Fan meetings are nothing new, but Ji Won has a special way of showing love to her fans by spending time with them on her birthday. There are numerous videos of her hugging fans and being extremely gracious when receiving gifts because she knows that they have worked hard to get them to her. The video below features her speaking to the audience during one of her birthday celebrations.

3. She loves to explore different genres.

Many actors fall into stereotypical roles, however, Ji Won has never liked being labelled. After being dubbed “Asia’s Horror Princess” because of her first few roles, she decided that she was going to break free of the title by declining roles in the horror genre. Since then, she has taken on many different roles in action, such as Sector 7, historical/period, like Damo and Hwang Jin Yi, romantic comedies, such as Secret Garden and King 2 Hearts, and more.

4. She likes to exercise.

During a candid interview for her movie Korea in 2012, Ji Won said, “In order to maintain youth, the right amount of muscle is always needed. Women actually need to do more strength training for their muscles. I have a lot of muscles because of my new film, but the right amount of training will help maintain youth.” She then shyly stated, “It will also push up everything for a woman’s body,” which caused the MBC TV’s Good Day reporter to blush as well!

5. She is also a singer.

Although she focuses on acting, Ji Won has been known to sing from time-to-time. In fact earlier this year, in June, she released a digital single called “Now In This Place.” While an actual music video for the song does not exist, the video below features the audio along with the romanized and English translation of the lyrics. She sounds amazing!

6. Bonus: She is incredibly giving.

Ha Ji Won has been involved in various charitable projects since the beginning of her career, including the Smile Again Project, which helped benefit low-income families and those with disabilities.

Luckily for us, we get to see more of Ha Ji Won in this week’s DramaFever Movie Night, The Huntresses.

Ha Ji Won Returns to Singing after 11 Years


Ha Ji Won


Ha Ji Won is making a comeback as a singer after eleven years!

The actress will be releasing a single entitled “Right Here,” and the lyrics were penned by “Empress Ki” writer Jung Kyung Soon for her character Seung Nyang. The song was composed and produced by Jung Jae Yoon, a member of the ’90s group Solid.

“Right Here” depicts the loving emotions that Seung Nyang would like to express, and being that she portrayed the character for seven months since its premiere, it is only fitting that the actress herself would sing the song.

While the drama already concluded last April, Ha Ji Won was more than willing to make time amidst her busy schedule to record the song.

She released this song to her fan café “To Love Ha Ji Won 1023″, and she also revealed plans to perform this song for her fans during the upcoming fan event in Tokyo, Japan on the 28th.

In 2003, Ha Ji Won released an album entitled “Home Run”, making it eleven years since she last released a song.

Listen to both songs below, and tell us what you think!
