Ha Ji Won is a skilled Bartender?

Well, she could be, as Go Chang-suk, her co-star from the movie The Huntresses, confessed so the other day. Let’s just read his report from kpopherald.com.


‘Ha Ji-won is the somaek guru’

Drama queen Ha Ji-won makes the best blend of soju and beer, or “somaek,” actor Go Chang-suk revealed Wednesday.

Go unveiled Ha’s talent during his appearance in the latest episode of MBC’s celebrity talk show “Radio Star.”

In the show, the lead actors of musical “Kinky Boots,” including Go, Oh Man-seok, Jeong Sun-ah and Han Sun-chun, unraveled interesting episodes behind the entertainment scene.

When Go’s turn came up, show host Kim Guk-jin fired questions at Go, “They say you would do anything for Ha Ji-won’s somaek, is that true?” Go heartily responded “Yes. I was overwhelmed with happiness (to try her somaek shots) — Her somaek blending skill is divine,” driving the crowd into big laughter.

The hallyu female star usually goes for soft mixes, Go added.

Somaek is one of the country’s most popular hard liquor blend. However simple the recipe may be, somaek-lovers have their own favorite soju-beer blending ratio and mixing performance. Frequently seen in countless Korean dramas, somaek is especially favored among the working population and college students.

Go’s remark on Ha’s somaek skills led to a horde of questions from the show hosts, who were eager to discover Ha Ji Won’s secret somaek blending ratio

Ha Ji Won Visits Hospital in Vietnam to support children with cleft lips

A well-known Korean actress , Ha Ji-won has recently visited Vietnam’s capital city of Hanoi to support and join a slew of activities organized by a charitable organization.

Ha Ji Won, a Korean artist who has long been known in Vietnam thanks to her moving, attractive films such as “Secret Garden” and “Empress Ki,” visited Hanoi on November 15 morning.


Ha Ji Won at the celebration of the 25th anniversary of Operation Smile Vietnam and with Miss Vietnam 2006, who is also an ambassador of Operation Smile Vietnam

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.

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!
