Ha Jung-woo’s brother to make acting debut
by | August 9, 2009 | 2 Comments

While there are a few well-known sibling pairs in the acting world, I wouldn’t say there are a lot (you’ve got the Uhms and Kim Tae-hee and Lee Wan, among others). Now we may be getting another pair when the brother to film actor Ha Jung-woo makes his acting debut.

Ha Jung-woo (The Chaser, My Dear Enemy) was born Kim Sung-hoon; his younger brother, named Kim Young-hoon, will soon be taking on his first acting role, according to a recent interview with Ha. Kim Young-hoon was a member in a dance group in 1997 and also has some theater experience; currently, he is managed by NOA Entertainment, who also manages his brother. Also like his brother, he is expected to take on a stage name, though the name hasn’t yet been revealed. In the event he makes his debut successfully, that means there will be three actors in the family; father Kim Yong-gun is a well-known actor whom you’ve probably seen at one point in time, such as in dramas Swallow the Sun, Wife’s Temptation, and Sons of Sol Pharmacy (Eun-ji’s father Young-dal).

Meanwhile, Ha Jung-woo’s latest film project is the sports comedy National Athlete [국가대표], which also features Kim Ji-seok, Sung Dong-il, and Kim Dong-wook.

    I adore Ha Jung Woo.
    He is a fantastic actor and he seems to have some personality by what I’ve seen him on variety talk shows.
    He’s definitely not a pretty boy but has a gorgeous voice and is very handsome.

    I have high expectations for his brother!
