"Hwangjin-i" a Huge Hit in Japan

2009/01/15 Source

KBS historical drama "Hwangjin-i", starring talented Ha Ji-won, is winning over Japanese viewers, posting the highest rating in its timeslot. Japanese TV station NHK started airing the visually stunning drama on its satellite channel bs2 at nine o'clock on Sundays since last April. After recording the highest rating in that timeslot, "Hwangjin-i" was aired on NHK every Saturday night since last October.

Ha Ji-won's representative says that, although historical dramas are difficult for Japanese fans to understand, Ha's superb dancing performances and colorful traditional Korean costume have captivated Japanese women. Ha is already well-known in Japan for her role in "Something Happened in Bali". The popularity of "Hwangjin-i" has driven her Japanese fans to ask Ha to Japan. Meanwhile, the actress is getting ready to shoot a new film, "My Love by My Side", in early February.
