That’s quite a lot of hair Han Ji-hye (The Duo) is sporting in her photo spread for W Korea magazine, but she’s one of those actresses who can pull off a lotta look.
Her look, achieved with the addition of lots of hairpieces, has the effect of combining a modern minimalism with a classical Korean touch — in fact, she reminds me of the gisaeng she played in the period action film Like the Moon Escaping From Clouds.
The overall result makes my neck ache in sympathy pangs, though; the pieces added a weight of 10 kg to her head. It’s a wonder it didn’t snap her tiny neck, though it does remind me of being walked home from school by grandma, who insisted on carrying my brother’s trumpet by balancing it on her head, the whole way home. That’s what we call a skill. Also a traffic-stopper.
Han recently wrapped her MBC sageuk The Duo, where apparently she inspired many viewers to aggravation as Dong-nyeo, the love interest caught between Chun Jung-myun and Lee Sang-yoon. She’s currently considering her next project.
