    There are a lot of articles even with the director but unfortunately all are in korean. Based on the translation available in google(my phone is so busy translating lol), it seems all are good and praising the production. It might be a low budgeted film but it is very well made movie. It is such a great oppurtunity that ji min was able to act in this film. This is the priduction that she will be remembered for a long time. Great actors and great director who did not give in to the pressure of having a male lead. I hope we can watch it with english subtitles very soon. I am so eager to watch

    @tok-soompithey will always need a board for ji min to step into lol. He is really tall. I am really curious who the writer of the drama is. The write ups only listed the main cast and director maybe because he is more known. I am more concerned on the writer than njh. Given a good director, i believe he can perform well. I am curious about the horrific sexual assault scene in miss baek. I hope we can watch the movie with subtitles. Really curious on how good the actors are especially ji min Miss Baek, Han portrays Baek Sang-ah, a woman scarred by childhood abuse. She goes on to serve jail time after defending herself during a horrific sexual assault, and emerges from incarceration to live an emotionally closed-off existence under the alias Miss Baek.

    Thank you chinggu for the updates. They already started shooting already? I hope nam joo hyuk's role fits him just like in wfkbj. They are both in BIFF and njh is just so good looking too. Just a bit too tall for our ji min lol. This is pre produced so the story is already set. We will not wait too long for ji min. So excited

    The short hair of ji min is in preparation of her next drama with jtbc it seems she is already talking about it so it is already confirmed. As per the instagram post that i have read, she accepted the project because of veteran actress kim hye ja and the PD who directed her in Detective K And she will once again act with lee jung eun who has acted as her mother in familiar wife. We only need one thing to be good, the writer. I hope she is a veteran with lots of experience or better yet with known dramas under her belt. Miss Baek I hope there are reviews from movie critics. Just want to know what their opinion of the movie

    I hope that atleast they can break even or maybe even more. Fighting Miss Baek!!!! Also, it is nice that she knows marriage most important aspect is love and that she believes in fate Han Ji Min Talks About Her Rough Appearance In “Miss Baek” And Looking Forward To Her 40s Oct 15, 2018 by K. Lew Han Ji Min talked about why she decided to appear in “Miss Baek,” her rough physical appearance in the film, expectations, and looking forward to her 40s in an interview. The actress recently starred in film “Miss Baek,” where she played titular character Baek Sang Ah, a woman who tries to protect herself and becomes an ex-con. She meets a child who is also an outcast from the world, and fights to protect the child. To fully portray her character, Han Ji Min took on a shocking transformation as she showed wrinkles, dyed her hair, and even smoked in some of her scenes. On why she decided to appear in the film, Han Ji Min laughed and shared, “I read the script at 4 a.m., an emotional time.” She continued, “Personally, I was angered by the child abuse so I didn’t worry, ‘How well can I do this?’ There were other dramas and films with this subject, but I suddenly thought, ‘I want to do this.’ I do think that there has to be some kind of fate regarding projects, but at the time, I really wanted to do this film.” She then talked about the audience’s surprise at her cursing and action scenes. She remarked, “Part of it is because the public has a slightly built-up image about me. Sometimes I think, ‘This is what they think of me,’ and when I do, I wasn’t able to say, ‘I’m not that kind of person.’ Rather, I considered doing a variety of work to show off different sides of me as a way to resolve this. I only think that I shouldn’t avoid taking on a new character because of worries or concerns.” Regarding her wrinkles in the film, she commented, “I didn’t mean to always be frowning, but because she looked at the world with a crooked gaze, I ended up grimacing. To add even more of a rough vibe, I tried to make my skin dry, which made wrinkles form. Rather than my expressions, I tried to express the character’s emotions.” She added, “My skin has currently recovered from then. Because I have thin skin, if I don’t put on lotion, wrinkles form easily. I did worry about it [as an actress] while filming the movie. Before, I hadn’t really gone to dermatologists often. My skin is thin and sensitive, so I was scared but after filming, I went to get treatment.” The actress also talked about being worried as it was the first female-led film in a while. She shared, “At first, I didn’t really think about the box office. But now, thinking about the passion people are pouring into the film, I do feel like we need to break-even. The public nowadays tends to like genres that are more extreme and with elements of humor. I hoped that if they could feel the sincerity we tried to convey, even if the film didn’t do well, people would think of it in a good way. Personally, my goal was for people to not see [my transformation] as something awkward. I hope that many people see sincerity.” Han Ji Min concluded the interview by sharing about what kind of actress she wanted to be in the future, as well as her thoughts on marriage. She remarked, “I know that marriage isn’t something that’s done just through love, but I’ve come to realize that love is what is most important. As I get older, marriage is a topic of question that I naturally begin to hear about. However, I don’t think it’s something to do because it’s getting late and I feel rushed. That’s because fate is something that comes naturally. As an actress as well as as a woman, I’m going to be 40 years old soon. Things that I hadn’t expected continue to unfold in front of me. I’m excited for my 40s, as I want to do the things that I wasn’t able to for other reasons, with ample time.”

    @rubie thank you so much for posting. Nice reviews from the netizens. Han ji min's best performance of her life I am so proud that in her career, she was able to do a movie such as this. Not only that she has given all her best but also the movie is socially relatable. I hope more and more people will be able to watch it. I can't wait to watch it with english subtitles. I also hope more countries will be able to screen this film since child abuse is a big problem everywhere. Just so proud of han ji min. May it do well and win awards not only for her but the production and her co stars as well. Actually at first I was a bit skeptical about this film. One, the director is a woman where in korea, most directors are male dominated, not sure about her experience. Then the director is also the screenwriter too where this is only her first film so not sure how this movie will be received and reviewed. Reading these reviews is just great. Ji min's judgement of accepting this movie and acting differently from her past projects is the best that she has done in her career. It took a while before it can be screened commercially but atleast it was screened and hoping more people will be able to watch by worth of mouth. May this be an eye opener and may more films like this be produced and shown in the future

    What's good about the review is she said ji min's acting is not bad, it's just that she is just used to her different image and i can tell she can't imagine ji min in the role. But for other people who will watch and does not know ji min, they might have a different opinion. It is a nicely produced film, i hope many people can go out and watch it. The review is good. I already have watched happy together in full. The episode was fun and have learned more about ji min. Actually i can't believe that she experienced a time where she felt that she is struggling, not sure if due to her career or personal life. When they have recorded those selfies to their loved ones, i can't tell if ji min has a boyfriend or not. I really hope she does ji min has cut her hair shorter. I prefer it long but she is still beautiful. I hope she can rest after all those promotional activities. Fighting ji min!!!

    It's nice to read movie reviews from a POV of a regular movie watcher. Can't wait to see the film Miss Baek (2018) October 12, 2018admin Leave a comment “I don’t have anything, so I can’t do much for you. But I’ll stay by your side. I’ll protect you…” Going into the film, I had no idea what to expect. I’ve seen the promotional poster and the trailer, but couldn’t really grasp what the movie was about, let alone the exact genre of the film. It’s labeled as a “drama,” but upon finishing the film, it’s so much more than that. It has elements of suspense, thriller, and horror on top of just “drama” (and I say horror, but it’s not the conventional “horror” that we see in typical films; I’ll explain further below). <Miss Baek>, directed by Lee Ji-Won, is based on a true story that revolves around the serious social issue of child abuse. The film addresses the matter head-on, not suppressing anything and keeping it very, very real. The main cast members are Han Ji-Min, Kim Sia, and Lee Hee-Joon, and features some great supporting cast as well, such as Kwon So-Hyun, Baek Soo-Jang, and Kim Sun-Young. I’d say it’s comparable to the other film that goes over some deep societal issues that was released last month, <After My Death>, in the sense that it’s dark-toned, serious, and goes over some crucial concerns. However, it’s not as dark and depressing as <After My Death>; it does have some comedic points, albeit rare, whereas the counterpart had absolutely none. Furthermore, I personally enjoyed this a lot more, as it focuses on one critical problem, whereas <After My Death> felt like it was trying to get across too many points. Nonetheless, we need more of films such as these that have a meaningful purpose/message, and sheds light on urgent issues. The synopsis is as follows: After being abandoned by her alcoholic mother, Miss Baek (Han Ji-Min) had to survive on her own as a young girl. When a man tries to come onto her, she attacks in self-defense. She is convicted and serves time, and loses all hope. As an ex-convict, she doesn’t rely on or trust anyone, and works multiple jobs to make ends meet. That is, until she comes across the malnourished Ji-Eun (Kim Sia) in shabby clothing, trying to escape reality. She sees her younger self in Ji-Eun, and decides she must save this young girl. Trailer Source: HanCinema The Good The acting by Lee Hee-Joon, Kim Sia, and Kwon So-Hyun were highly applaudable. Lee Hee-Joon played the cop and boyfriend of Miss Baek (aka Han Ji-Min), and his portrayal seemed very genuine and real. Furthermore, I believe this was Kim Sia’s (the child actress who played the role of Ji-Eun) debut in a feature film, as I can’t find any other movies she was in. That being said, she was amazing. Definitely a child star to look out for. And finally, Kwon So-Hyun, the female supporting actress who took on the role of the girlfriend of the father of Ji-Eun was spine-chillingly good. She genuinely seemed like a crazy person. Although her role was just a “supporting” one, she definitely had a lot of spotlight. Moreover, the movie keeps it very real. By this, I mean it doesn’t try to hide or keep things mild. There are some very shocking scenes, and scenes that are extremely creepy. There were moments where I had goosebumps and chills running down my back. Although it wasn’t a thriller/horror movie, it definitely had the suspense and thrill as one; it was scary in a way that’s different from other horror/thriller films. And I say horror because it brings the “horror” element of abuse, both physical and mental. Also, the movie gets really sad(?), in a good way. I’m not sure if “sad” is the right word, but it’s the closest term to describe what I’m trying to say. The story gets very emotional in the sense that it’s touching, disheartening, dreary, fearing, empathizing, and hopeful. If you see the film, you would understand what I’m saying; you get riled up with various mixed emotions. The guy next to me was sniffling during some of the sadder scenes. The Bad I mentioned above that it keeps it very real and doesn’t hide anything. That being said, the main topic of the film is a sensitive one. It could be hard to watch for people who’s had to deal with physical abuse, divorced parents, or other serious events in their family. I can see it bringing about some hurtful memories to those that may have had some hard times in the past, myself included. It can go two ways: (1) One can empathize with the film and bring new hope; (2) It can evoke memories of traumatic events and be hurtful/dangerous to the state of mind. One should take some level of caution when deciding to watch the film, but I believe it was a great film that stirs strong emotions. In addition, the story doesn’t make sense to a certain degree. The fact that Miss Baek was so attached to and empathetic towards the child, who she’s seen around before, all of a suddenseemed quite odd and strange, especially since she even mentions she never wants a kid. In the beginning of the film. she’s portrayed as a woman that despises “family” and just people in general; very closed and unwelcoming. However, I found that to be non-corresponding to how the story unfolds. And finally, I have to say this wasn’t Han Ji-Min’s best appearance. It wasn’t that her acting was bad. It was more so that the image she had as a person and from previous works didn’t really fit the role of the character in <Miss Baek>, in my opinion. Maybe if she plays more of these “badass” roles and we get more accustomed to it, it would feel more authentic. Eon’s Ratings Acting: 9/10 Casting: 8/10 Plot: 8.5/10 Visual/Special Effects: N/A Cinematography: 7.5/10 Overall: 8.3/10 Verdict I can’t say it’s a must watch, as it may not be enjoyable to everyone. As mentioned in the review, it can get a little emotional for some. However, it is a very well-produced movie with a great social message.
