Han Ji-hye sings on Chocolate

Television actress Han Ji-hye‘s latest two projects are a digital single and shoe designing, both of which she demonstrated at the May 16 recording of talk show Kim Jung-eun’s Chocolate (which will broadcast on the 23rd).

On the program, Han drew some designs, showed off her shoes, and sang the peppy single “Luv Luv” (listen below), which is also being featured on her cable special Shoes! My Dream!

Personally, I think Han Ji-hye is a much better actress than she is a singer or designer. You be the judge.

SONG OF THE DAY

Han Ji-hye – “Luv Luv.” Her vocals are a little weak, but the song is cute. [ Download ]

Here’s one example of a “design” Han drew on the program. I’ll just say, if that’s what it takes to be a shoe designer, I could be an architect! I have the dinner napkins to prove it.

Asked what her next project will be, she answered, “While filming Likable or Not and East of Eden, I didn’t take a break, and it feels like I’ll be going without rest for some time still.”

Han also talked about a recent segment she filmed, saying, “I like to dance, so I thought I was pretty good at it, so I agreed to dance for Sohn Dam-bi‘s ‘Saturday Night.’ I went to dance school for three days, and I wondered if I was really a bad dancer.” She confesses that on the second day, exhausted, she’d thought, “This must not be for me. I must be an idiot to think I could do it.” The broadcast date for this is not yet set.

I haven't seen her since Sweet 18 and Cloud Stairway. While I loved Sweet 18, I thought her acting was a little weak. Has she gotten any better? I think I like her better as a singer than an actress. This song was cute.

@ Lucille

Han Ji-Hye has become a really good actress since East Of Eden. The show was horrible, but I watched it for her.

well, the difference between her and the rest of us who can design just as much is that she has the opportunity and the means (while riding on her popularity at the same time) to do it and she grabbed it, while we just yet to come across such luck or don't even bother to look for it and just settle for drawing on napkins. Also maybe she's passionate about it and we are not. So really, just salute her on her attempts and do away with the negativity. Just a thought.

Her vocals aren't necessarily any weaker than any other Kpopper's. *shrug* It is a cute song though.

Also, not impressed with her shoe design. But if she spontaneously came up with it on stage (not that I really believe that, but I'll give her the benefit of the doubt), it's possible the things she's allowed to spend more time on are actually interesting and unique.

But yeah, what's with all these actor-turned-singers these days? It's kind of a weird trend. What next, singers-turned-directors (or vice-versa XD)?

Thanks so much for the DL link. She's at her best when acting!...

She can try other stuff though...no harm in trying.

I fully agree with well_oh_well, actually. Though the shoe design isn't exactly original, I think HJH does have some talent - not that I am an expert in shoe-designing or designing of any sort. Her singing is pretty average, to be honest, but at least she can carry a tune. :)

I think I like her best as an actress - very natural. It was because of Sweet 18 that I started watching K-dramas!

I'm not too sure if it's necessarily a good or bad thing that so many Korean actors and actresses are branching out into so many things. To be fair to them, there's absolutely nothing wrong - as long as it's nothing illegal or harmful to anyone. They're young, attractive, bankable stars and why not try their hand at everything or at least what they're interested in? If I were famous, young and bankable, I would too. ;)

the design of the shoe she drew is basically the same as what is out right now in stores. Is this supposed to be innovative or something?

The intro of the song is a bit too repetitive and becomes really annoying after 15 seconds or so...And her voice can't really be heard that well since the beat is so loud, but maybe that's a good thing? ;-)

Not impressed by the design - if she really has the creativity and talent for shoe design, she probably could have pulled off something more innovative or inspiring.

I like the song, but seconded on not sure about buying the shoes. They aren't anything special, but at least she's able to do something she's interested in. Cheers to that!

I don't think she has a good singing voice. And as an actress, she is okay. But I saw her dance in one of the variety shows before and I was like, OMG, she is a graceful dancer.

As for her being a shoe designer, well, she's young so she has years to improve.

I dont mind branching out... but sometimes it's just best to stick with what you're good at.

It's sort of funny that we get Han Ji Hye news right after Han Hye Jin news XD I had to do a double take since their names are so similar XD

I like the song. It's cute but her voice is a little weak. I agree with Kender, other Kpoppers voice are weak too. I do like HJH acting. She's getting better as an actress. I don't mind actors/actress branching out as long as they are successful in their endeavors.

Thanks JB for sharing HJH's song! :D

Just like Ay_link, I had a hard time recognizing her voice. The song came out better than I had expected. It's actually cute! Her voice lessons may have paid off.. and can't forget to thank technology also.

But like what Kender said, some kpoppers who actually make a living as singers have weak voice as well. They rely on technology to have their voices masked with digital manipulation. You can easily notice it when you hear them perform live in a show.

She must have had lots of fun designing shoes and recording a song.. but I hope she's satisfied with her extra-curricular works and come back soon with a drama/movie project. I miss seeing her acting.. I love her as Ji-Hyun in East of Eden. Seeing her mature as an actress, as well as discovering the new talent in Park Hae Jin, were the only benefits I got from that drama.

i like her better as an actress more than a pretentious designer or singer. -..-
Actually her singing isn't bad...no better or worse than SNSD or wondergirls, kinda cutesy singing. But i hope she doesn't go on and become one.

if it took her less than 3-5 minutes to draw that then she's ok. there are many designers out there that have been successful from a drawing like that. many shoes out there nowadays are being sold with designs that are a lot worse than what she drew. of course i'm not saying she's amazing at designing shoes or singing, but she is "ok" at both. for any one of us to be very good at acting, ok in siinging AND designing is not something that happens everyday. let's just say she's multi-talented.

i think it's ok for artists to branch out a bit because they are already in the entertainment business, since they have the connections why not try it out? heck, if i was a successful actress and there was an opportunity for me to sing and design, iw ould take it. of course if i was horrible at it, i would keep what i do a secret. i just think it's natural for actors or singers to branch out and do different things. but yah, although han ji-hye's drawign doesn't look UNIQUE, we should probably cheer her on =D

Looks like she can dance...

Can any kind soul provide the link to this chocolate show? I would like to indulge. Thank you very much.

She is one gusty gal! I like her. Not too loud or flamboyant. She has a pool of faithful fans which she deserves and won some lukewarmers like myself.

Adventurous or not, at least she is doing something she enjoys and find fulfillment in. Kudos to her !
