Widely known for her appearance in “The World of the Married”, Han Sohee will be joining the Busan Film Festival with Netflix’s “My Name” – which has been quite sluggish after its introduction.
Through the story of a woman who changed her name to get revenge, will Han Sohee be able to rebound with her urban image and strong acting?
Actress Han So-hee, who emerged as a “cheeky affair mistress”, seems to be slowing down. She still doesn’t have any hit yet since her appearance in JTBC’s “The World of the Married”. While she is participating in the Busan International Film Festival, which will be held from the 5th, and promoting her new Netflix film “My Name”, the audience is paying attention to whether she will be able to join the A-tier list with this work.
The Netflix series “My Name,” starring Han So-hee, was officially invited to the 26th Busan International Film Festival. “My Name” is a revenge drama about what happens when Jiwoo, who entered a mafia organization to find the culprit who killed her father, changes her name and infiltrates the police. The series will be released on Netflix on Oct 15th.
Before this, “My Name” will hold a fanmeeting event with the audience at the Sky Theater of the Cinema Center on the 7th and 8th of October. On the 8th, the “My Name” open talk will also be held on the outdoor stage of the Cinema Center. Earlier, Han So-hee said on her Instagram, “See you in Busan 10/6~10/8,” signaling her attendance at the Busan Film Festival. Han So-hee will tell various behind-the-scenes stories about the series through these audience-interacting schedules.
One of the reasons behind Han So-hee’s more efforts in this work is her poor performance. “The World of the Married” put Han So-hee on stardom at once. Even though she played the role of an affair woman, she was liked by the public for her splendid appearance and delicate acting skills. Since then, she has also secured model positions for various brands such as cosmetics, clothing, and finance services. However, JTBC’s drama “I Know”, which aired last summer, was a let-down with just a 2% viewer rating.
In “My Name”, Han So-hee plays Jiwoo who became an undercover for revenge. Han So-hee, who was mainly liked for her sophisticated image, will present a rough and intense appearance this time. It is said that she constantly trained at the action school to be able to perform high-intensity action scenes.
For Han So-hee, “My Name” is expected to be an inflection point as an actress. The audience is focusing on whether she will be able to prove through the series and her acting that her popularity is well-deserved, and was not just a fame bubble.
