Nevertheless just came to a close in August but avid followers of Han So Hee could no longer wait for her return to the small screens. Luckily, Netflix released the first batch of teaser photos for the upcoming new K-drama series of Song Kang’s former leading lady.
Han So Hee looks like a strong female warrior in the new teaser photos released for the upcoming Netflix drama called My Name. For starters, the imminent show centers on a woman named Yoo Ji Woo who joined an organized crime group and infiltrated the police as an undercover agent to find out the cause of her father’s untimely death.
The first batch of teaser snaps showed the character of Han So Hee, who witnessed the death of her dad in front of her during her 17th birthday. Yoo Ji Woo, then, finds Moo Jin (Park Hee Soon), who is a longtime friend of her father and leader of the Dongcheon gang, to ask for help in finding the killer herself.
Han So Hee’s Yoon Ji Woo will, then, join the gang to plot an act of revenge. While at it, her fighting skills will be honed so she could survive the savage world. The love interest of Song Kang in Nevertheless captivated everyone when her character made a shocking transformation, donning a shorter bob and leather jacket.
Another teaser photo featured Yoon Ji Woo facing Moo Jin while wearing boxing gloves and a face full of blood and wounds. Spoilers have it that the character of Han So Hee will change her name from Yoo Ji Woo to Oh Hye Jin as per Moo Jin’s suggestion.
Yoo Ji Woo will have a hard time unveiling the truth behind her father’s death. The reality that working undercover is very much different from the one with the gangs will also slap her.
When asked about her thoughts in filming the action-packed scenes for My Name, Han So Hee stated:
“I realized for the first time that I have two left feet. I gradually transformed by going to action school on all of the days—Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays—and I had fun filming because of the euphoria that comes after perfectly completing an action scene.”
Director Kim Ji Min also praised Han So Hee for working very hard to pull off the difficult scenes. He said:
“Han So Hee found the solution on her own. She thinks extremely hard about what she has to do, so she can just film it when she arrives on set.”
Aside from Han So Hee, other personalities confirmed to appear in My Name include Ahn Bo Hyun, Lee Hak Joo, Hee Soon Park, Kim Sang Ho, and Chang Ryul among others. The forthcoming Netflix series is set to premiere on Oct. 15, 2021.
Meanwhile, Han So Hee shared her thoughts about portraying Na Bi in Nevertheless. During an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, the 26-year-old actress-model revealed it took her quite some time to fully relate to Na Bi, saying:
“It took me a long time to become one with Yoo Na Bi. Then I realized that it’s more important to focus on the emotions of the moment than to decide something and express it. I chose to stop rather than express myself when I was faced with overwhelming emotions.”
Han So Hee also talked about her devoted supporters. The Nevertheless lead star admitted she did not expect to receive massive support because of her portrayal as Na Bi. She stated:
“I’ve always been embarrassed to receive so much love with just my appearance, but now I want to repay [my fans] in some way. I want to work hard so that I can show them that their precious hearts are not just simple cheers but a great power that protects me and helps me grow.”
