Han Ji Min 한지민

After watching the trailer, the plot has some similarity to familiar wife. They use a thing to manipulate the time, Han Ji Min's character has to go through same unfortunate event (her father died), oops not just HJM, :sweatingbullets:but Lee Jung Eun also has the same fate (why oh why) :joy:. However, I believe this drama will be a heartwarming one, whether it has a happy or sad ending. right now, the father and daughter relationship (mostly played by kim hye ja) probably gives the essential value to this drama, and it draws my attention.

 

As I saw those behind the scenes, I really hope Korea drama's improving by making a lot of pre-production projects instead of live-shoot. Because it's clearly affected the ambience and synergy of all the crews and actors, it produced well too. I really don't care about the ratings nor the buzz worthy trend thing, as long as it's a good written drama, why bother about all that stuff. Many good dramas didn't have good ratings, but they got a lots appreciation (whether it comes from award shows or reviews). well as many has said, you can't please everyone at the same time, so you shouldn't try to please them all the time in your life. :glasses: I just hope this drama gives a heartwarming feeling to everyone who watch it till the end.

 

P.S. I'm still in doubt about her decision for the next drama (though she already gave an explanation, and not a solid answer). hahaha just my opinion :D and finger crossed it will done well, we'll see.

 

I agree with you @unknown12, watching the long trailer somehow gives the vibes of familiar wife since her mother here is also the same and his father died unexpected too but i think this will also be like the film ms granny but just the opposite. That is why i think ji min considers her role not a big role since this is all about the old kim hye ja. But just the teaser shows good scenes with ji min so i don't mind if she is supporting a great senior actor like kim hye ja. Also, this is pre produced and with a good production team so i have high expectations. I hope that most of their dramas will be pre produced too to improved the quality and also for the stars and crew to not suffer from live shooting and days of no sleep plus they also sometimes changed the script if the ratings is not good and there are complaints from viewers. With pre produced dramas, story is already fixed and they can't change anything even if the rating is good or bad. I always prefer family oriented dramas. I do think it is what hyde, jekyll and me lacks before that is why i don't like that drama. Really hoping that the story is good, funny and may the ratings be good. Ratings unfortunately is very important for a drama to be called successful. Just a decent 3% ratings and it's all good.

 

Actually, i have some issues with the choice of her next drama too but my concern is mostly with the writer not the actor or PD. If you have watched SITR, you will know what i mean. I have needed a lot of motivation to finish that drama lol. It has the most annoying mother i have watched in all my kdrama watching and i already have watched almost 150 dramas. No issue with jung hae in even if he has been in the spotlight because of the baeksang awards issue and i like the PD since he directed SLA with kim hee ae. The story is the most important and i hope the writer has improved, crossing all my fingers and toes lol. Also, i think ji min accepted this if she likes to act in a romantic film. Romantic film is very different in dramas since it is more intimate so i hope she will do well. The PD is known for more intimate scenes so i am braising myself seeing ji min in those kissing scenes lol:wub:

If she got good romantic film, i will like her to act with season film actor or around same age actor.  Nothing wrong with very young or very old actor.  Just that i still cannot forget her opportunity with Hyun Bin.  Can she cast with Lee Jun Ki, Joo Ji Hoon or any actors around the same age?? 

 

It is just a wishlist.  Haha!  Her personality no issue with anyone.  In fact all the younger actors love to work with her.  All the same age very shy with her if they are still single.  All the older ones?  I feel like they may eat her up if they are still single. Haha!

 

Yeah that opportunity with hyun bin that got wasted sigh. That bad drama experience will hinder their reunion i guess. I hope she can get to act with same age or older actors. I don't mind younger actors but she is of marrying age already. I want her to meet and act with older actors who can be potential namja chinggu too hahahaha. Romantic films are different especially if melo. She should brace herself especially if the actor is a seasoned one lol. Just this drama spring night, she should brace herself since the PD is known for intimate scenes. And we know that her dramas are very limited in this department. I am just hoping for a great chemistry with jung hae in since i am sure their chemistry will be compared to son ye jin. Currently watching a noona drama too and i hope they will have better chemistry. And hoping for jung hae in not to smile a lot lol

@richelle, hahaha (to Jung Hae In smile alots).  Somehow with Ji Min, i felt the intimate might be less obvious.  Not sure is it her that cause director to change of mind... or just the project direction.

 

Eg.

The age of shadow - Gong Yoo still laments no kissing scene between them as it is cut out.

 

Two Lights - the director has many well known "erotic" films... but the short film is jist a peck. Haha

 

The most intimate scene ji min involved so far is padam padam.

HAHAHAHAHA :D many people got irritated too by the way jung hae in got to smile a lot in his previous drama, and i think i know why, it was the script made him do it :sweatingbullets:. I know he's not a bad actor, it's just the fact she got partner up with another younger and new actor (he's considered as new), i wish her partner is someone with the experienced one, just like Ji Sung (this is why i'm not complaining). and also many has complained for the writer too, I agree with you, the writer still needs a lot of improvement. as for the director, i put my hands in the air :lol:, his previous works before pretty noona buy me food were so great, he's being partner up with writer jung sung joo was the best (i watch some his dramas, A wife's credentials was so great).It got me wonder why they didn't get to work together again, and what happen to the writer, no news of his new project?? they indeed bring out the best of each other. hope for future work of them and han ji min got to work with them.

 

Han ji min wants romantic genre in a movie, it reminds me of Ha jung woo's interview, he also wants to do a romantic movie in the future. what a coincidence! can i hope for this pairing next project? is it too much?? :sweatingbullets:

I remember read this 2 articles about Gong Yoo's interviews, yes he mention that kissing scene. however in the article, gong yoo said the kissing scene was only up to a suggestion/idea from the director who's also the writer. Gong yoo and the director discuss about that, but they decided not to do it, because that's not too essential for the movie or as i remember gong yoo said he can't see the purpose for having that scene, as the way he looked at her through the camera was already enough to send a message for the viewers that he loves her. as for han ji min, gong yoo said she didn't know at all about the idea nor the discussion. After telling her, han ji min's answer was the same as gong yoo's, she said what's the point of having a kiss in the middle of a fight/war? :lol: (well sometimes this is why i like her, she's being reasonable). well i don't know how gong yoo reacted to her answer, did he disappoint cos perhaps he wanted at least she's answering the opposite?? hahaha (just my imagination). :lol:

Yes indeed he agree no kissing for the film.  That is why he keeps suggesting a rapping scene (many times between all of them backstage which i believed is meant to joke. What he really want is skinship with her.  Haha) in the director remake film.  Both of them can re enter the director film even is a very small role.

Jung Hae In is not too young comparing to Nam Joo Hyuk... so kissing him intimately is still ok.

 

JHI also mentioned to expect a different emotions from him... we shall see.

 

Many choices in a row... ji min choose something anyone can relate and this time no magic.

 

Reminds me of the film "very ordinary couple".

yes, he said it's been a while since his last romance project.

 

this is one of the articles, i highlighted where he said that.

Ha Jung Woo explains that even if Suzy were cast as his wife in upcoming film, he wouldn't have scenes with her

 

In light of his upcoming blockbuster film 'Take Point' premiering in theaters this December 26, actor Ha Jung Woo held a roundtable interview to discuss his current works, as well as upcoming works in 2019. 

 

During the interview, Ha Jung Woo was asked if he's willing to work on any romance genres. The actor replied, "I'm extremely interested in doing a romance production, but I have no idea why all of the latest movies these days or the productions I choose are all just the wrong type," causing laughter. 

 

The actor added, "I've been filming with all men nonstop. I'll be heading into filming for 'Baekdu Mountain' soon, but even if Suzy were to be cast as the role of my wife, what's the point? We won't meet in the movie. All of my scenes will be with Lee Byung Hun hyung, from beginning til end. Filming different scenes take place separately. They are the people who are left behind in Seoul [in the movie], and I'm on the rescue team headed to Baekdu Mountain." 

 

Ha Jung Woo continued by addressing some of his 2019 productions, saying, "My next film 'Boston 1947' is also a movie where I bring two men on a trip to Boston. It's a mess (sigh)." Some other films Ha Jung Woo will be working on in 2019, including 'Abduction' and 'Closet', are both movies centered around predominantly male characters. The actor bemoaned, "I want to film movies like 'Autumn in New York' or 'Love Affair'. I believe my last romance was in 'Assassination' (2015). I suppose there was some in 'The Handmaiden' (2016)..." 

 

Finally, Ha Jung Woo coined that the reason he has not been able to work on any dramas lately is due to the fact that its difficult to coordinate drama schedules with movie schedules, and added with yet another sigh, "There have been so many gem-worthy dramas while I've been doing movies..." 

 

Previously, it was reported that Suzy was recently offered the role of Ha Jung Woo's wife in 2019 film 'Baekdu Mountain'.

Is it just me or you also see ji min as being too thin? I hope she will gain a bit of weight. I don't want her to be too thin. Not sure if it is only because of the shot or I am just being paranoid hahaha:D

I have issues with younger male actors who smile a lot lol. To the point that sometimes i find it creepy hahaha. I am currently watching a noona drama which just ended last week and goodness, the male actor there is worst compared to jhi, just my opinion. I hope the story for spring night is not about a noona romance but about just an ordinary coouple who are experiencing issues being together and planning to get married.

 

I think of ji min as the conservative type. And we can also see how straight forward she is, i think some find her intimidating as she always speaks her mind. I hope this new year we will be surprised not because she has a new project but because she is in a relationship:wub: yay lol

 

Two lights is a wholesome project so i am not surprised why there is only a peck. I enjoyed that short film:wub:

 

i agree her drama with the most intimate scene is padam padam. Have you seen how jung woo sung devours her lol. I am bracing myself for spring night. The director is not conservative when it comes to intimate scenes lol. Ji min needs a lot of practice hahaha

A wife's credentials, i like that drama too. One of the most underrated dramas in my opinion. If the writer is the same writer, i will not complain. But the previous drama SITR has a lot of story and character issues so that is my main complaint with the writer. I hope han ji min sees something in the script that made her accept it.

 

As the previous article on ji min said, there is an onset hierarchy for every project. I think the only advantage working with less experience actors is we are sure ji min is in the highest hierarchy. Only downside is the drama is mostly her responsibility just like Miss Baek.

 

Ha jung woo? Too much i think. He is too busy plus i do think he will not be making a movie that the box office is not guaranteed. As ji min said, romantic films are not too commercially viable as it used to be. Ji min is only one of those who works on projects that she believes in even if she knows that success is not guaranteed. Just like Miss Baek, that is why i have so much admiration on her as an actress:wub:

2 time travel dramas is more than enough and i am glad that ji min choose something that is hopefully a relatable drama. I think i have watched a very ordinary couple with lee min ki, right? I just don't remember the story anymore. I want something that is just ordinary, focusing on current issues with couples. I do think this drama will be the last for ji min this year. So i am hoping for it to be good since we don't know when she will be in a drama again:)

Hmmm...i don't know what to say (i'm sorry for this lil' bit off topic)...:unsure: but i think you kind of underestimated Ha jung woo. as i remember, from some of his interviews he said he chose a project based on the script, if the script is fun, then he's totally in, doesn't matter what role he got. i remember he's doing PMC cos it's something new for Korean movie industry, so he wanted to do it. however, PMC was considered as a failure by many critics in korea. He had done a romcom with Gong hyo jin and romance drama with Jeon Do yeon before. I've seen Never Forever with Vera Farmiga, though this one was not commercially success, but i found the story was quite rare in a good way, and he nailed in playing that character. so imho, i think he will do any romance project as long as the script is good, the same as HJM i think. :)

^i think i have a wrong perception of him and thank you for giving me some insights of his project choices. It will be a great honor for ji min to work with him but i just don't see it coming. Hjw is just so busy with so many movie projects currently.

 

Looking forward to ji min's drama premiere. I don't think we will have issues with the subtitle and that is good news:)

from the trailer, i assume ever since she found the watch she can turn back time to fix things, however every time she use it there will be a consequence she will get, and based on the synopsis it will be her age i guess :sweatingbullets:. so  from previous trailer, she questioned all the things she had done, including the unrequited love that she should sacrifice for helping her dad (just my assumption from the trailers).

Ji Min is playing 25 yo.  :)  both she and NJH full of praises to each other.  Below extract from soompi:

 

“Radiant” Co-Stars Nam Joo Hyuk And Han Ji Min Rave About Their Experience Working Together

Feb 8, 2019
by E. Cha

Nam Joo Hyuk and Han Ji Min, the stars of JTBC’s new drama “Radiant,” couldn’t say enough good things about each other!

“Radiant” is an upcoming fantasy drama about the love story between a woman who has the ability to travel through time, but finds herself entangled in a knotted timeline (played jointly by actresses Han Ji Min and Kim Hye Ja), and a man who carelessly throws away the brightest days of his youth by leading a torpid life (played by Nam Joo Hyuk).

On February 8, the drama unveiled new stills of stars Nam Joo Hyuk and Han Ji Min sharing a romantic moment on the roof at night. The photos capture Lee Joon Ha (played by Nam Joo Hyuk) gazing affectionately at Kim Hye Ja (played by Han Ji Min), who shyly avoids his gaze.

Nam-Joo-Hyuk-Han-Ji-Min2.jpg

Han Ji Min had no shortage of praise for her co-star, enthusing, “The time I spent filming together with actor Nam Joo Hyuk made my heart flutter and feel warm. Thanks to actor Nam Joo Hyuk, who approached me first and made things comfortable, we filmed every scene happily and amiably.”

She added, “I was happy to be able to display romantic chemistry with actor Nam Joo Hyuk, who made a flawless transformation into his perfectionist character Lee Joon Ha. Even the look in his eyes changed to match his character.”

Nam Joo Hyuk similarly commented, “It was an honor to be able to work together with both Kim Hye Ja and Han Ji Min. It’s something I could never have imagined.”

He went on, “Every moment of filming was so happy and precious to me that I think all of the scenes we filmed together will remain in my memory.”

The producers of “Radiant” also attested to Han Ji Min and Nam Joo Hyuk’s chemistry, remarking, “[The drama] marks the meeting of two people who know quite a bit about portraying romantic feelings. You can safely look forward to the chemistry between the two actors, who transform even ordinary, commonplace moments into something radiant and special.”

“Radiant” premieres on February 11 at 9:30 p.m. KST and will be available with English subtitles on Viki.

In the meantime, check out the latest trailer for the drama with English subtitles below!

Another great review for Miss Baek:wub:

 

Through Violence, Social Awareness And A Child’s Eyes, MISS BAEK Urges You To Try A Little Tenderness

 
 
 
 

I haven’t seen Han Jae-rim’s 2007 film The Show Must Go On, so far be it for me to weigh in with any pretenses on the work of its co-writer, Lee Ji-won. Therein, however, lies the added bonus of only just now getting to sample his work as I did this week with his feature directing debut, Miss Baek, a film that rightly validates the ceremony that’s been much ado at festivals of late in Korea, Tokyo, the UK and as of last week, right here in New York City.

RelatedPosts

 Opening the New York Asian Film Festival’s inaugural Winter Showcase last week, the emotional journey Miss Baek takes you on is one that so fittingly tackles some important themes and issues regarding poverty and the 99% among which our own Baek Sang-ah (Han Ji-min) is a part of. Abandoned by her abusive mother at a young age and ostracized by the system, Sang-ah now lives out her rocky relationship with her boyfriend Jang-sub (Lee Hee-joon), a detective who took her in after she served time for killing her would-be rapist.

Sang-ah’s trauma is the foundation of her angst and reluctance to care much else about others, a fact she conveys consistently through her callous, wry veneer. Before long, her emotional barriers endure their biggest test yet when she decides to share a meal with Ji-eun (Kim Shi-ah), a disheveled hungry 9-year old girl she spots standing alone in the cold, dead of night and wearing not much else but lots of bruises. When Mi-kyung (Kwon So-hyun), a woman believed to be Ji-eun’s stepmother arrives and picks her up, Sang-ah is clearly aware of its troublesome air. Nonetheless, she remains only as receptive as she can allow herself to be given the circumstances, on top of her emotions now mixing over the fact that she rather prefers to look after herself at this point.

Still, the unsure feeling this chance meeting produces is enough to warrant caution for Sang-ah, bookended by repeated sightings of Ji-eun in the street which spark her increasing involvement and sense of urgency. Things reach a boiling point when she is brought face to face in front of law enforcement with Ji-eun’s visibly abusive father, Il-gong (Baek Soo-jang) and his insidious, malevolent girfriend revealed to be Mi-kyung.

Despite her best efforts and as much as Mi-kyung attempts at trying to frame Sang-ah as a child kidnapper, the bureaucracy of filing a police report and the ever-present and conciliatory police inaction become quite clear. Instead, what follows, in perhaps one of the film’s most stunning and powerful moments, ultimately brings Sang-ah to unearth her maternal instincts and find the courage to act on Ji-eun’s faint, desperate cries for help before it’s too late.

MISS BAEK M-Line Distribution

Miss Baek prefaces itself as a film based on a true story adapted for the screen with certain changes. It’s an understandable concept that such a story as this one warrants that kind of disclaimer drawn from its attention toward the chilling nature of the very real subject matter the film centers on.

By spotlighting the all-too familiar consequences faced by children who are mistreated and left nowhere to turn, Lee masterfully crafts the omnious parallel between Sang-ah and Ji-eun that drives the story with such stimulus and pathos. Lee further builds on this element through pertinent flashbacks to Sang-ah’s tainted, foreboding youth with her mother, played by actress Jang Young-nam, and the film’s grisly opener is a testament to how this pans out.Miss Baek takes vast, compelling shape with its gripping performances and dialogue, and an enthralling score from composers Lee Eun-joo and MOWG that lends a more-than-discernible impression on its audience. Exemplary of this is what we see well into the first-half of the film between Ji-eun’s burgeoning bond with Sang-ah, and her haunting, oppressed and shackeled existence at home where it then seems her days are evermore numbered than before.

A subversive, smartly-shot and executed indie drama, Miss Baek doesn’t hold back. Characteristic of any notable drama of its kind, Miss Baek hands you a cinematic experience that lays the poignant, arresting groundwork for a triumphant, signature finish in Lee’s winning debut. Han Ji-min’s starring performance is one of the most stellar you’ll ever see in film, and her shared time on screen with Kim Shi-ah’s moving recital as Ji-eun will leave your heart melting through as the end credits roll.
