Park Seo Joon Asks Ha Ji Won If She Would Mind Starring Opposite Him

On February 11, SBS entertainment news show “One Night of TV Entertainment” caught up with actors Park Seo Joon and Ha Ji Won on the set of their commercial photo shoot.

The two were still breaking the ice, having met for the first time on set. During the interview, Park Seo Joon cautiously posed a question to Ha Ji Won, “If I was in the co-starring opposite role would you be okay with that?”

The moderator piggybacked on the actor’s question and rephrased it as, “Pick one out of Hyun Bin, Park Seo Joon, and Ji Chang Wook.”

Ha Ji Won responded, “I would go with Park Seo Joon. Really, let’s work on something really good together next time.”

He said, “To be honest, I am a huge fan [of Ha Ji Won]. Whenever I am asked in interviews which actress I want to work with, I always say Ha Ji Won sunbae.”

Ha Ji-won says she could be nonhuman

Ha Ji-won expressed her willingness to take a role of a nonhuman during an interview with a local TV station.

In an interview with “One Night of TV Entertainment” on SBS, Ha said she would like to be in a fantasy film, and that the role doesn’t have to be a human.

“I can be an eagle during the day and turn human at night,” she said.

Park Seo-joon, who was interviewing Ha, said he wouldn’t mind if he were a jealous bald eagle if he could play a role in the same film as Ha.

Ha Ji Won Still Seeking Action

She is one of few actresses here who are not afraid to pull off action stunts in films or TV dramas ― be it wire action sequences, shooting arrows on horseback, or boxing. But beneath the fierce heroine veneer is a 36-year-old actress who simply enjoys venturing into different kinds of genre, and the fun accompanied with each role. And in doing so, she is able to combine femininity and elegance with being a powerful, strong woman.

Asked what has propelled her through her acting career, she answered, “I just say ‘go’ when I have my mind fixed on a certain film.”

“I rarely regret the acting choices I made in the past,” Ha told The Korea Herald last week “because I am the one who chooses to do them.”

“I also don’t worry whether or not (a film) will be a hit. The only thing I can do is to prepare copiously and diligently, all while thinking happy thoughts,” she added.

Maybe it is this “work hard, play hard” mantra that has brought her success. Her star power has not waned over a nearly 20-year career.

Since her debut in 1996, the actress has starred in countless works both on the small and silver screens, becoming one of the most in-demand actresses here. She is especially remembered for her roles as a fearless Joseon-era detective in TV drama “Damo” (2003), the owner of a faltering seafood restaurant in the disaster movie “Haeundae” (2009), and a stuntwoman in the romantic drama “Secret Garden” (2010).

Ha is known in the industry as an actress who throws herself into her role, leaving nothing to spare.

“I thought everyone was doing it that way,” said Ha, who admitted her love for filming action flicks.

Despite a fear of heights, Ha welcomes wire work and high-flying action.

Most of the time, she does her own stunts.

In one case, she fractured her neck. She almost lost her sight in another shoot, and putting a raw steak on bruises to heal faster was routine while making the 2007 film “Miracle on 1st Street,” in which she played a boxer.

“I didn’t have a chance to see how other actors or actresses did their action scenes, so I just focused on myself and did my best,” Ha said.

She said she learned to do action stunts through rhythmic gymnastics. In a typical practice session, she would wield her juggling clubs, then the stunt teams would fall on the ground and pretend to be dead.

“I liked that kind of fantasy,” she said.

“It was like dancing, and that’s how I got started,” said Ha. “I think the good and fun memories were a catalyst for me to go into action films, even if it meant my body aching.”

In a departure from her invincible fighter roles of the past, Ha plays a mother for the first time in the film “Chronicle of a Blood Merchant” based on Chinese bestselling novel by Yu Hua.

Playing a mother of three kids was a lot of fun, said the actress, who is single and has no children. “I didn’t really take care of or do something particularly for the kids. All I did was hang out, play games and try to have a fun time together on the set.”

When asked whether marriage was on the radar, she says having three boys ― just like the film ― plus a daughter would be really great. But she is not under pressure to get married any time soon.

“It seems like my dad doesn’t want me to get married,” Ha said with a smile. “They just want me to get some good rest between films.”

“I like having fun,” she added. “I think that is where my passion comes from.”

Although nothing is set in the stone, she is currently auditioning for Hollywood films.

Girls Day’s Hyeri is very happy for Hyun Bin’s attentiveness

Girls Day’s Hyeri and Hyun Bin are currently acting together in SBS’s drama Hyde, Jekyll, Me’. Hyeri was happy by the attention that she has received from the actor who she always said to be her ideal type, during the drama’s shooting.

In the drama, she acted as cheerful Min Woo Jung, who fell in love with one of Hyun Bin’s characters, Robin.

When they were shooting for an arm bar scene, the handsome actor did not complaint or gave a tired look when they had to repeat the scene. She could feel comfortable and do her best due to his attentiveness.

“Am I not the first junior who did an arm bar to senior Hyun Bin? Thank your for this chance, and I felt very honored to be able to act with him. Thanks to his attentiveness, I could seriously do the arm bar to him,” she told Dispatch.

He did not stop there, when the cute idol had to cry, the 32 year old actor once again tried to help her.

“There was a scene where I had to suddenly cry after I did the arm bar, but it was not easy. Senior Hyun Bin had helped me a lot. I was especially touched when he tried to cry after he asked ‘Do you cry when you see someone cries?’ I was so surprised and admired him,” she continued.

As a newcomer actress, Hyeri felt she was still green in acting, but she could do it well thanks to the help from the drama’s director and her seniors.

“The shooting schedule is quite tight. I felt uncomfortable because I could show better acting if I had more time to prepare. But, I went through the shooting without losing my concentration thanks to the director and many seniors who have been so helpful,” said the former girlfriend of Tony Ahn.

ONE -tv (Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia) Airs Hyun Bin’s Romcom


Fans of Hyun Bin, rejoice – appearing on ONE is the most sought after leading man in South Korea today as he takes on his first ever double role.

In Hyde, Jekyll, Me, the 32-year-old actor plays Goo Seo Jin, the director of a theme park that looks as magical as it sounds, Wonderland.  But there’s a catch: a far cry from his joy-inducing workplace, Goo is snooty, finicky and has a weak heart.  He also suffers from multiple personality disorder.

One day, Goo meets the beautiful and opinionated Jang Ha Na (Han Ji Min, Rooftop Prince), who happens to be the manager of his theme park’s circus troupe.  She falls in love not with the arguably charismatic director, but his warm and sprightly alter ego Robin, who was borne out of a traumatic childhood experience.

With its intriguing premise and storyline, Hyde, Jekyll, Me is a tribute to director Jo Young Kwang’s love for drama, but it is also a heart-warming tale of love and reconciliation with the past, told through the handsome star of 2010 hit drama series Secret Garden, as well as multi award-winning screenwriter Kim Jee Woon’s captive script.

The 20-episode Hyde, Jekyll, Me is based on Lee Choong Ho’s web comic Dr. Jekyll is Mr. Hyde and also stars popular actor and model Sung Joon, as well as Hyeri from K-pop group Girl’s Day.

Will the mercurial Goo Seo Jin and his less dominating, but unendingly charming arch nemesis Robin ever become one?  And more importantly, what will become of Jang Ha Na’s adoration?

Follow the fairytale as the curtain rises across Southeast Asia to present Hyde, Jekyll, Me on 25 February, 8.55pm/7.55pm(JKT), first and exclusively on ONE.

Hyde, Jekyll, Me premieres 25 February exclusively on ONE every Wednesday and Thursday at 8.55pm (SG/MY) and 7.55pm (JKT).

ONE is available in Singapore on Singtel TV Ch 513, 604, 514/605 and StarHub TV Ch 124, 820, 823, Malaysia onAstro B.yond Ch 393 and Indonesia on Indovision Ch 164.
