Han Ji-hye publishes autobiographical essay collection
by | June 3, 2010 | 7 Comments

Another actor gives book-writing a whirl: Han Ji-hye (Like the Moon Escaping From Clouds) recently published My Fair Lady, a collection of “autobiographical lifestyle essays.”

The volume focuses on Han’s hobbies and daily life rather than on her onscreen work and contains Han’s writings about her current experiences as a twentysomething single woman, as well as her reflections on her life till now. It also touches on the various projects she has undertaken such as designing shoes, studying tea ceremony, learning about ceramics, DIY furniture making, fabric art, and more.

Han said, “As an actor and as a woman, numerous times I’ve asked myself things like ‘Is living like this the right thing?’ ‘Does the work I’m doing suit me?’ and ‘Am I doing a good job?’ I’d like this to be one kind of reference book for readers who have had the same thoughts, to use as they search for the answers to their questions.”

Han will participate in a book release event on June 10 at the O’Sulloc Teahouse in Seoul’s Insadong district to celebrate the occasion.

    this kind of self-reflection writing is something i hope to do one day…… if i’m not too lazy OTL.

    but yes, strange cover design.

    What’s with the title of the book? Doesn’t make any sense. (Not quite as stupid naming your song “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,” but close).

  5. Erika

    rather presumptuous, i would say.

    I hope it is released in English.
    My Korean still needs work.

    well, at least she didn’t attempt to write a story.

    i just realised the leaf is stuck to her lips. OK. WAY WEIRD. I thought she was holding the leaf. Like how you would hold a flower to your lips.


    cover designer must have been watching too much tim burton. 😛

    so what was she doing? sucking the leaf in? :/

    but i love HJH. she’s pretty. and pretty decent in acting. not singing.
