It seems that our amazing yeoja, Ha Ji-won, had a lot of fun in Taiwan. She effortlessly joined Chang Chen, a famous Taiwanese saeguk actor, playing an impromptu fighting scene on stage as she is very well known in Taiwan after her latest saeguk drama, Empress Ki, was a hit there.
Ha Ji Won’s appearance on the red carpet of the 52nd Golden Horse Film Awards recorded the 3rd highest rating at 2.63% for the red carpet session. The highest rating of the red carpet session (3.28%) happened when director Ang Lee and veteran local actress Hsu Feng arrived at the red carpet. Former Golden Horse best actor and actress winners (both Taiwanese) Lee Kang-Sheng and Chen Shiang-Chyi’s part at the red carpet marked the 2nd highest rating at 2.87%.
* Attendees of the Golden Horse Film Awards this year include several internationally known or popular Asian stars like Jackie Chan, Shu Qi, Aaron Kwok, Eason Chan, Chang Chen, Lin Chi-Ling etc. Despite the attendance of these well known Chinese stars, Jiwonnie still manages to attract cheering crowds and also TV ratings. Glad that she is well received in Taiwan and hopefully she can extend her popularity to more countries.
Dramafever also described the event as a very important film festival. It wrote:
The 52nd Golden Horse Awards delivered without a hitch on November 21. The most prestigious awards for Chinese-language cinema invited guests like internationally admired star Jackie Chan and Korean actress Ha Ji Won to the star-studded event hosted by Taiwan’s top model-actress Lin Chi-ling.
Ha Ji Won looks stunning in her white gown, walking the red carpet with Mr Dimitri Gouten and, of course, wearing Piaget. From chingu @Zoompi123 we learned that ;
As the ambassador of Piaget, she received courteous reception from Piaget. Piaget prepared 10 sets of jewelries that are worth around 300 million Taiwan dollar for her to choose. She will be walking the red carpet with Piaget Asia Pacific President Mr Dimitri Gouten, and will be presenting the Best Supporting Actor and Best Short Film awards. She revealed that she wants to meet director Ang Lee at the award ceremony.
