Actress Ha Ji-won Explores Her Lighter Side in New Rom-Com

2016/12/10 | 2015 views | Permalink | Source

Moviegoers will get to see another side of actress Ha Ji-won in the romantic comedy "Life Risking Romance". Ha plays a clumsy novelist on the trail of a serial killer.

At a press event in Seoul on Thursday, Ha said, "After playing serious, strong characters in previous dramas and films like "Empress Qi" and 'Chronicle of a Blood Merchant', I wanted a comedic role. I was drawn to the script because it's a romantic comedy with the twist of a thriller. I had to play it straight in funny situations in order to build the comedic tension, and that was so much fun".

Asked about her co-star, Taiwanese actor Chen Bolin, Ha said, "I enjoyed working with him. He was hardworking and sincere, and never complained about working in Korea, away from home".

The film's director, Song Min-gyoo, said, "Most romantic comedies focus on an emotional conflict between a man and a woman, but I wanted to put a new spin on the old formula by drawing in elements of other genres".

The film is scheduled for release on Dec. 14.
