Han So Hee unexpectedly called “the next Jeon Ji Hyun”, Knets react: “Han So Hee is better”
Many Korean netizens have left comments saying Han So Hee has already surpassed her senior Jeon Ji Hyun.
On October 1, in an interview with MK Economy, Han So Hee was asked about how she felt when being dubbed “the next Jeon Ji Hyun”. She responded with a humble attitude: “I don’t think I deserve that title. I want to establish myself on my own first.”
However, many Korean netizens have expressed their thoughts that Han So Hee had already “surpassed” Jeon Ji Hyun in acting. In the past few years, instead of starring in new films or series, Jeon Ji Hyun has mostly appeared in commercials. Her latest drama “Jirisan” has received mixed reactions for not living up to the expectations. Some netizens even no longer consider Jeon Ji Hyun an actress, but a CF star.
Some top comments from Korean netizens:
1. [+190, -9] Han So Hee is much better at acting than Jeon Ji Hyun.
2. [+65, -0] The word ‘cool’ would suit Han So Hee more than ‘pretty’.
3. [+40, -0] She’s not an actress who shot to fame solely because of her look. Hopefully Han So Hee will continue to grow and become an actress with great acting skills.
4. [+40, -6] I liked Han So Hee in “My Name”, it made me see her in a different light. The second Jeon Ji Hyun??? I think Han So Hee has already surpassed Jeon Ji Hyun though, isn’t “Jirisan” already a flop?
5. [+14, -1] No “next Jeon Ji Hyun”… Han So Hee is just Han So Hee, no need to compare her to anyone. She is also a celebrity herself. She really surprised me in “My Name”, not only with her new image but also acting.
6. [+13, -2] Han So Hee is someone who is always willing to try new roles… While Jeon Ji Hyun is just an actress in a fried chicken commercial.
7. [+11, -2] Jeon Ji Hyun’s entire career is based on “My Sassy Girl” and “Thieves”. But it’s almost over now, given her boring acting in “Jirisan” and the negative reviews the drama is getting. Let’s not underestimate a rookie with so much potential by putting her name next to Jeon Ji Hyun.
8. [+9, -0] Why all of a sudden compare her to Jeon Ji Hyun? Han So Hee is the best actress in her age group.
9. [+8, -0] Jeon Ji Hyun isn’t an actress, she’s just a CF star.
10. [+5, -0] If Jeon Ji Hyun starred in “My Name”, she wouldn’t be able to achieve the same success Han So He did. In terms of acting, Han So Hee already surpassed Jeon Ji Hyun.
Although the reactions of Korean netizens are somewhat too negative, it is undeniable that Han So Hee put a commendable effort into playing a feisty female character in “My Name”.
As for Jeon Ji Hyun, the drama “Jirisan” led by her has only aired 4 episodes and still has many unrevealed mysteries. The drama’s rating also skyrocketed in episode 4. “Jirisan” is broadcast every Saturday and Sunday on tvN.
