People: Han Ye Seul
Han Ye Seul's portrayal of a spoilt heiress in Fantasy Couple (Fantastic Couple) seems to have done wonders to her career. In an interview with The Korea Herald, Han's career has been reported to have taken flight following her stint in the drama series. Read on for Hellohallyu's take on this up and coming actress.
While one cannot, and should never, read too much into media interviews, what came across in the article was Han's candid and down to earth attitude. I cannot help but feel that she's one of those nice artistes without the airs most celebrities surround themselves with. Perhaps most telling was how Han defended her fashion co-ordinator after suffering a minor wardrobe malfunction during a recent film award ceremony. Not many would have done what she did.
Also found out that Han is an American born Korean and is known as Leslie Kim back in the US. With bilingual Korean artistes few and far between, Han will definitely be a breath of fresh air when takingon English lines in any script.
Seeming to follow in the footsteps of Jeon Ji Hyun and Song Hye Gyo, Han has not discounted entering the American movie and drama market in the future. Looks like Korean influence on Hollywood is set to grow.
