June is knocking our doors. Yes, it is the month where all 1023 [read it as “LOVE”], Ha Ji Won’s fanclub name, gonna celebrate her birthday. She was born on June 28, 1978 in Daecheon, South Korea as Jeon Hae-rim who later storms the Hallyu-world with her stage-name, Ha Ji-won,
Time does fly as we can easily remember her as the bubbly teen from the movie 100 Days With Mr Arrogant, twelve years ago, or the immature and selfish but all-the-way-sexy tour guide Lee Soo-jung of famous tv-series Memories of Bali. Some of her (new) fans might not know that years ago her nickname was The Horror Queen as her spooky movies like Phone (2002) and Nightmare (2000) were so popular.
During her almost two decades of working in K-ent world, she has given us, her fans, various achievement and roles, as the versatile actress she is, from the gisaeng (or geisha) in Hwang Jin Yi to the mother of three, Heo Ok-ran of Chronicle of a Blood Merchant, her latest movie that just premiered four months ago.
She is a lady now, not just uri Gil Ra Im or Her Highness Empress Ki Seung Nyang, because in real life she is a boss, as she has established her own agency called Haewadal and scoring various kind of job in Korean, and international, entertainment industry. Fortunately, Haewadal is growing well. It seems Haewadal has just got four new grooming talents who are not just hot but very promising as well, like Ji-won’s little brother, Jeon Tae-suk, actor Choi Dong-gu (you might remember him as Young Teacher from Healer), male-models Gi Min-sik and Nam Dong Hyeon.
It seems that she took beauty-related programs recently. As we know, her older sister, Jeon Yu-gyeong, owns a posh beauty-shop called Chick and Chic in the fancy Gangnam Street. Chick and Chic sells its own brand only, known as cosmetics that use only natural ingredients to minimize the possiblity of skin irratation. Ju-gyeong Unnie is getting more famous lately as she accompanied our amazing yeoja to France for her latest reality program, Go Go with Unnie, for On Style, a cable TV. Our Ji-won latest beauty-program is doing another spot for On Style TV called Get it Beauty where she will share some beauty tips. That program is said to support our Ji-won who will launch a new beauty product called JONE on June 2, 2015.
Ha Ji-won surely is growing on us, her faithful fans. Good news is that we can celebrate her birthday this year with her latest drama, The Time I Loved You; 7000 Days that will be aired in next three weeks. A biggest gift for us, her SeGa Family, is obviously the appearance of Mister Kim Joo-won himself to celebrate his very own Gil Ra-im’s birthday. That is our best wishes. So, can you do that, uri Joo-won-sshi? Or should we just call you, ahem, Mister Kim Tae Pyung? 😀 😀 😀
