The actress, who has been appointed Ambassador to the Operation Smile organization, is expected to join several activities to support Vietnamese children with cleft lips and cleft palate. She will also raise funds to train dental doctors and provide dental hygiene education to children.

Speaking to local media, Ha Ji Won said she wishes to help Vietnamese children change their fates as being able to speak, eat, and smile are simple things but there are unfortunate kids who are unable to do those things due to birth defects.

This will be the biggest operation this year in Vietnam carried out by the US-based organization, to mark the 25th year of Operation Smile in Vietnam.

In the last 25 years, Operation Smile has given free operations to over 33,000 children with cleft lips, cleft palate, and other facial deformities.

Ha Ji Won visits The Cuba Hospital in Vietnam.

 

The free surgeries will be conducted from November 17-21 in six provinces and cities from north to south, including Hanoi, Nghe An, Thua Thien Hue, Ho Chi Minh City, Bac Lieu, and An Giang.

Surgeries for cleft lips are only operated on children of at least six months old and weighing eight kilograms. Children of at least 18 months and weighing 12kg are eligible for cleft palate surgeries.

Children will also be given free food and accommodation during the treatment period at hospitals.

The opening day on Nov. 17 will be for health examination and surgeries are in the following days.

According to Nguyen Viet Phuong, representative of Operation Smile in Vietnam, the organizationattracts 200 volunteers who are medical professionals. This time, there are 500 volunteers from 26 countries around the world coming to the Southeast Asian country to support the operations.

Besides Ha Ji Won, the event also attracts the participation of former Miss Vietnam Mai Phuong Thuy and Chadleen, a popular singer from Philippines who used to have cleft palate and was operated by Operation Smile at the age of 7.

The night before visiting Cuba Hospital, Ha Ji Won also attended Smile Gala Party at Lotte Center, Hanoi.

image

Celebrity Magazine has written a warm cover story about our amazing yeoja, Ha Ji Won,  featuring her family, The Jeons.Born as Jeon Hae Rim, our girl is portrayed by her mom, dad and siblings as amazing as we all knew very well for so long.  Here is some translations from the article, thanks to some kind souls at soompi , HJW PH and AC Fanpage @FB.

- Her Mom has spoken :
“Our weirdest child? That would be our Hae Rim.. She’s different from her sisters, I have told the press how weird she sleeps, but that’s not the weirdest thing you would know to her, back when she’s just 9 years old, she cut her own bangs , telling that she looks like Tae-soo and we’re now having 2 little boys, she even talks to ants asking them how they maintain theirselves in a straight line even they don’t have eyes, then Hae Rim always represent herself when it comes to barbecue cooking, and what’s funny to her is she was afraid to sharp point of the stick…hahaha” -Yeon Soon Son(mother)

- Her Dad said :

“Back then, Hae Rim is the wisest among others, she tries to understand our situation in her early age really a matured one, she’s most vocal to us, remind us how she loves and treasures our family she’s a queen of sticky notes . She always left a note on our fridge just saying “I love you all, I have sched today” , even she have to leave our home at 2am or 3am , and she knew that were sleeping, she won’t bother us from sleeping just to bid goodbye, she will just leave a note for us. On her room. She emphasize these phrase on her wall “Family first, before anything else”. That’s our Hae Rim” – Jeon Yoon Bok(father)

Ha Ji Won had a warm family dinner with the Kiwis in Seoul

New Zaeland Ambassador Rata hosted a dinner in honour of Ms Ha Ji Won, as the NZ Cultural Ambassador, at his residence.  Ha Ji Won and her management team and Embassy staff had great fun enjoying top quality New Zealand wine and food and a performance by Tawaroa Kawana and Sarah Hanita Paki from New Zealand as well as the friendship between Ms Ha and the Embassy which has been built over many years. Ha Ji Won has shared some of the photos from the dinner on her Instagram account.

Here is  a personal reflection on dinner in honour of Ms Ha Ji Won from Kyungmi (Sophie) Kang, Policy Adviser

It’s been nearly 10 years since Ms Ha Ji Won became engaged with the Embassy’s activities. The story begins with the inaugural New Zealand Film Festival which was held in 2005 in five Korean cities, in which I was heavily involved. In order to promote the festival I proposed that the Embassy appoint her as the Publicity Ambassador as she was a very well-known actress in Korea and was staying in Auckland for a bit of time that year. Since then we have stayed in touch and she has been actively supporting our Embassy-related activities.


At last night’s dinner, Ambassador Rata acknowledged her long-standing contribution to the Embassy. Ms Ha responded that she valued the connection with New Zealand through her engagement with the Embassy in her role as Cultural Ambassador and wanted to maintain it for a long time. The dinner served as a very timely and memorable event for Ms Ha and myself as well as the Embassy staff. It was a great celebration of our genuine friendship with premium New Zealand wine and food and a special performance by Kiwi singers!

My heart shared what the Ambassador said for Ms Ha – “Ji Won, welcome home. As New Zealand’s Cultural Ambassador, this Residence and the Embassy are also your home just like for any other Kiwis.” I think she well deserves it particularly given the continuity in our friendship today and into the future!

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.

[Taiwan Interview-3] Ha Ji Won Wants to Rebel and Becomes a Backpacker in Europe

image
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.
