This is the first of an irregular themed set of postings, where I will concentrate on a specific actor or actress, or maybe a connected set of movies.
The first subject is the immensely talented Korean star Ha Ji-Won. There are two reasons for starting with her. Firstly, synchronicity has landed a number of films that I have been watching on my screen that all star or co-star her. Secondly, I realised she was the star of the first Korean movie I have purchased. Seems like a sensible way to start?
I call this Ha Ji-Won week, but that is merely for titling – I suspect this will go on for a little while.
Ha Ji-won is a great actress, but I think her greatest asset is her versatility. As you will see in the next few postings, she has succeeded in multiple genres – Horror, Comedy, Drama and Epic.
She won’t necessarily be the “star” of all the films I talk about next, but she will always be an important component.
