Han Ji-min “I debuted 19 years ago as Song Hye-kyo’s younger counterpart in ‘All In’… I wasn’t nervous because I wasn’t greedy”

Actress Han Ji-min recalled her debut time and expressed her feelings about visiting the Busan International Film Festival.

On the afternoon of Oct 8th, Han Ji-min‘s “Actor’s House” of the 27th Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) was held at KNN Theater, KNN Tower in U-dong, Haeundae-gu, Busan. “Actor’s House”, which was first introduced last year, is a special program that invites actors representing the contemporary Korean film industry to share intimate and in-depth stories about their acting.

This year, starting with Han Ji-min, Kang Dong-won, Ha Jung-woo and Lee Young-ae will participate to talk about their thoughts on acting and their favorite acting scenes. On this day, Han Ji-min said, “I came down to Busan and met the audience after a long time with a work called ‘Yonder’. I was worried about what to do if the seats were empty, but thank you for taking time to meet me at such a precious time on the weekend.”

Han Ji-min, who said it has been 19 years since her debut, confessed, “My dream was not to be an actress when I was young. It was a time when street casting was popular, and I started as a magazine model, a TV commercial model. I debuted as Song Hye-kyo’s younger counterpart in the drama ‘All In’ (2003).

She added, “At that time, they did an image casting. A lot of people auditioned to achieve that role. I didn’t have the desire to work as an actress, I didn’t know much about acting and I didn’t have any greed, so I didn’t feel nervous.”

The Busan International Film Festival, which opened on Oct 5th, will screen 243 films from 71 countries and 111 Community BIFF films until Oct 14th on 30 screens in 7 theaters, including Busan Cinema Center.
