Han Ji Min Talks About Role in All In

Han Ji Min played the role of young Min Su Yeon in the drama, the character which Song Hye Kyo played.

During the May 29 episode of Go Doo Shim’s Channel A show I Like Go Doo Shim, the host asked Han Ji Min how she became an actress. She then recalled how nerve-wracking it was to have her first audition as she has been known for her shy and reserved personality.

“I wasn’t that ambitious about becoming [an actress], and I think that somehow made me look relaxed and not nervous [during my auditions],” she said.

She then talked about her debut as Song Hye Kyo’s counterpart, saying that she scored the role despite being one year younger than her in real life.

According to Han Ji Min, she initially refused to star in the series as it overlapped the schedule of their family’s first vacation abroad. But when she came back, the drama still has not found someone yet, so she finally pushed through with the role.
