    Han Ji Min 한지민

    October 15, 2018 Han Ji-min plays tough woman in “Miss Baek” by Park Jin-hai The Korea Times Actress Han Ji-min takes on the toughest role of her entire acting career in her latest film "Miss Baek." She plays ex-convict Baek Sang-ah who was abused by her mother and abandoned as a child. / Courtesy of Little Big Pictures Actress Han Ji-min is no longer a "sweetheart." In her latest film "Miss Baek," the 35-year-old actress turns into a tough ex-convict, swearing, spitting and smoking on the street corner _ an image one can hardly imagine for the actress, known for her humanitarian work and voluntary efforts to help children from North Korea and in developing countries in Asia. The film "Miss Baek" deals with child abuse. Han plays Baek Sang-ah, a woman abused by her mother and abandoned as a child, who in protecting herself from sexual assault had to serve jail time, and then lives an emotionally closed-off life from the rest of the world. Instead of her given name, she lives as "Miss Baek" to hide her identity, but as she happens to meet a girl in the street who has been abused by her computer game-addicted father and his lover, she tries to save the child who reminds of herself during her own childhood. In order to better play her new role, Han bleached her hair and wore no makeup except for red lipstick as if saying, "I'm a strong woman. So leave me alone." From the first scene, her charismatic look and acting gives a strong impression to viewers. But, Han says the image makeover was not the major reason she joined the project. "Although I've always been looking for new characters and changes as an actress, it was not the reason I chose this film," said Han in a recent interview. "I accepted the offer because the film deals with the painful subject of child abuse but looks at it with a warm heart and solace… When I first read the script, I felt like all the things (that happen in the movie) happen in the real world. Baek was a very different character than I've done before, but I felt strongly like I wanted to embrace her hurt and vulnerability." Actress Han Ji-min / Courtesy of BH Entertainment The film was inspired by the director Lee Ji-won's own experience of a neighborhood girl who people suspected was being abused by her parents. The low budget film is having a meaningful success at the local box office, ranked the third most seen at the weekend box office, following Korean crime thriller "Dark Figure of Crime" and the Marvel blockbuster "Venom." As for some acts of violence seen in the film, the actress said they were necessary in order to emphasize its message. "It might be uncomfortable for some audiences, but without them, the film would not sufficiently express the child's situation and pain. So many people read about child abuse in the news on a daily basis but they end up just thinking another unfortunate case happened," she said. "When the same story is told in the medium of a film, it has a more emotional impact on viewers. People quickly forget social issues, but when they are told through film, more people remember them and also for a longer time. So I really wanted to play my role well." Han says viewers after watching the film will leave theaters with the meaningful message the film carries. "The film gives the message that personal lives are important but the world people leave behind to our children is more important and without creating social awareness for this issue and acting on it, we can hardly change the world." Han, who debuted in the teenage role of main character Song Hye-kyo in the hit drama "All In" in 2003, says as she gets older, she thinks more of what she can do as an actress. "Whenever I finish my work, I receive a lot of feedback from audiences and I realized that I'm doing work that can give hope to many people. Now I'm in the process of straightening up my thoughts on what responsibilities an actress should have." jinhai@koreatimes.co.kr

    Han Ji Min 한지민

    Translation credit: Netizentown October 14, 2018 Netizen review "Miss Baek" 10/10 As a mother of two daughters this was a heartbreaking movie to watch, I watched a nice movie 10/10 A movie that does not need words, I heard a lot about it so watched it and I really liked it 10/10 Han Ji Min's best performance of her life 10/10 I really enjoyed it, thank you 10/10 I don't understand why movies like this don't get enough theater screens. The actors are all good, especially Han Ji Min 10/10 Material that is heavy and difficult to deal with. I applaud the performance of Han Ji Min, I was biting my lips throughout and could not get up for a while after the movie ended... I needed a cup of soju after. 9/10 As a fan of Han Ji Min unnie, I watched the movie as soon as it opened. The content is very moving. It's a meaningful movie that brought up social issues and allowed me to think about them. Han Ji Min's acting was also the best 10/10 I see a lot of indifference and lack of awareness in today's society and it made me self reflet. Above all, Han Ji Min and Kwon So Hyun's breathtaking acting power gave me goosebumps added to the actors' strong performances, it was a movie with a message. 10/10 The reality is more cruel and frustrating. If I ever meet a Ji Eun will I be able to become a Miss Baek? I thought about that a lot. Wherever they are, I pray that the countless Ji Eun's and Miss Baek's keep warm. 10/10 Scenario, actors, acting power, it has all. It's was a good movie that made everyone feel warm and in harmony with each other 10/10 We need more movies like this 10/10 Han Ji Min did really well 10/10 Han Ji Min did well, the movie was jjang 10/10 Han Ji Min's performance was impressive as she interpreted child abuse as a motive for solidarity rather than approaching it from the angle of maternal love. I am tired of the noir movies who abuse women and use them as sexual tools, this is a good movie that made me think a lot. There are not enough screenings but I hope it will grow more and more.

Wonder if he's now the new manager for Byunghun.. Tweeted by BH Entertainment last night, in the comment section the Korean fans are asking for a fan-meeting in Korea.

Despite the category being one of the most hotly contested, the veteran actor managed to fend off competition from the likes of Kim Nam-joo from “Misty” and Jeon Seung-woo from “Life,” adding yet another award to his glittering career. During his acceptance speech, Lee said many staff and actors worked together for “Mr. Sunshine” and that he had a lot of people to thank. “There were five main characters and I learned so much from them and also was proud of them as their senior,” the actor said.

    Yeah, he was there as the main emcee. He went down to the audience to interview the nominees. He even had a quick Q&A with LBH during the Daesang speech.

    Kim So Yeon 김소연

    Thanks so much @larus for posting the APAN Daesang clip, I'm trying to compile some.. so, really appreciate the highlight. And it's extra special, too. Especially sweet noticing that BH remembers SoYeon as he went up to accept the award.. well.. obviously, since they were acting together in more than half of IRIS episodes. Haven't felt more happy seeing them on the stage together.. after IRIS in 2009. Admittedly I was hoping (and shipping them a bit) back then that they would work together again in a project but it didn't happen. He went on to act in movies and SY continue working in dramas, showing her true talent with memorable leading roles and eventually winning a Daesang herself. Because of the ending of Mr. Sunshine, I'm hoping that LBH & KTR would collaborate again in a (happier-ending) movie.. but seeing LBH and KSY last night, I have to say I really want to see them in a drama together. Maybe some writers or producers will take note of this. Btw, SW & SY really make a super-dashing couple on the red carpet. You just can't take your eyes away from them.

  12. Welcome back @peonie & welcome to LBH soompi thread @kansas424 and @marfisa ! What a great night indeed, MR.SUNSHINE recognized as the Best Drama of the Year and earning 3 more awards including the Daesang for Byunghun-ssi, well-deserved! His appearance at the red carpet is always as we expected and more, very accommodating & kind to the waiting fans.

By Yim Hyun-su (hyunsu@heraldcorp.com) // Twitter & IG fan-sharing Source: Newsen So happy to see actress Kim So Yeon presenting the Daesang to LBH. Brings back such good memories from IRIS' Hyunjun & Sunhwa combo and the KBS Awards 2009 particularly. Still hoping that both actor would reunite in a new project, action or non-action movie or drama. BH & MJ.. not Mrs. Lee.. but Ms. Kim/HiNa

In his Grand Prize speech, Lee Byung Hun said, “I wanted to say a lot of things here so I wouldn’t regret anything, but my head is in a whirl. ‘Mr. Sunshine’ had so many people working on it, to the point where there was a B team and C team for the production crew. I worked with some amazing co-stars. There are so many people I want to thank. A lot of people had to help me achieve the miracle of looking even one year younger than I really am.” He continued, “This drama had five main characters. Kim Min Jung, Byun Yo Han, Yoo Yeon Seok, and Kim Tae Ri – I learned from them all. I am proud of them as their senior, but I also realized that I can’t become complacent.
