Han Ji-min considers film Miss Baek as comeback project

After finishing the rounds of promotion for her latest movie Age of Shadows and briefly making a cameo appearance in Jealousy Incarnate, Han Ji-min is deliberating on Miss Baek as her next project. If she confirms, Han Ji-min will portray a young woman who strikes up a friendship with a broken child who has suffered from domestic violence.

Most of Han Ji-min’s previous movies, like Age of Shadows and Fatal Encounter, have large casts and are predominantly male-centric. In contrast, a starring role in an emotional sentimental film like Miss Baek would require her to showcase the full range of her acting ability, as she would have the bulk of the screen time. She has ventured into rom-com, thriller, and historical genres before, but it will be the first time she tackles a sensitive issue like child abuse.

Director Lee Ji-won will be heading the Miss Baek team. He is a rising star in the film world who is best known for Blue Desert, which was awarded the Busan International Short Film Festival Award in 2011, and Summer Night, which was awarded the Grand Prize in the Short Film category at the 2016 Jeonju International Film Festival. The real test will be getting his success in short indie films to translate into mainstream popularity.

Currently, the cast is being finalized, and the child auditions are in their final stages. Filming will begin soon as casting finishes, and the movie Miss Baek is set to be released next year.

I was hoping she would take on a drama after Age of Shadows, which she did well in.

Oh! My comment appeared and then disappeared and it was not a negative one by any means. Puzzlement abounds. I was just commenting that I wish to see Han Ji Min take on a drama ... and that she put in a good performance in Age of Shadows.

I'm kinda surprised to come here and see that she has fans here. I'm not familiar with her but it seemed like any news of her potential casting was met with negative response. And when she declined, peeps where happy. It made me curious. Is she a bad actress or what?

People talked negatively especially about her performance in Hyde Jekyll Me. And sometimes people are just so mean talking nonsense mainly because they just don't like her. But her performance in movies are way more better than in her dramas and it shows specifically on 'The Plan Man' and 'The Fatal Encounter'.

She's my bias and I'll support her all the way. She has reasons why she prefer to work in movies rather than tv dramas. And she's just so smart in choosing between the two.

And by the way....I've read all those negative comments too. And I think I'm not just the only fan who've read all those nonsense. We just keep our mouth shut sometimes if there's a negative reaction. Just a waste of time if we argue to these people.

Her roles in movies better than drama. Her acting can be a hit or miss, kinda like Han Hyo Joo as well, in my opinion.

I genuinely think that drama acting and movie acting require two very different sets of skills. Movies have a long time schedule, they also have the opportunity for numerous retakes, and in the end the director edits a lot of pieces that don't fit the story. I believe that sometimes, poor performances could be covered up by skillful editing. Also the actor has a lot of time to delve into their role.

Drama acting on the other hand is more spontaneous, especially with the live shoot system, actors have little time to delve into their characters, they are usually just reacting to the script. Plus they have so much more to film - a 16 episode drama vs. a 2 hour film. Little time for editing or retakes so an actors flaws are very easily seen by the audience.

I personally think that dramas are the true test of an actor's skill. If you can shine in dramas, you'd have no problems with movies. Dramas are much harder to do well in. It's no wonder that well established movie actors stay far away from dramas. The actors that do well in both mediums really deserve praise.

I respectfully disagree. I think movies are much harder and the expectation is higher. It's not about numerous retakes etc, it's about talents, raw to remain at the top. They have 2hrs to give it everything. There is no room to breathe.

Movie actors hardly struggle in dramas even when some of them have never done dramas before. They stand out because they have natural talents and and natural ability to adjust to any circumstances.
A lot of drama actors are so mechanical, over exaggerated facial expressions with badly delivered lines etc.

Movie actors often compensate for their co-stars lack of acting skills especially for the newbies that comes from dramaland.
Watch actors like Song Kang-ho,Jeon Do-Yeon, Choi Min-shik, Hwang Jung-min, Jo Jae-Hyun, Han Suk-kyu, Park Geun-hyung, Ha Jung-woo, Jo Jin-woong, Kim Young-cheol, Sol Kyung-gu etc. They are fantastic at covering up when they are in a movie with the less talented.

Dramaland is not lacking in talents but most of them are being ignored in favor of the more popular, pretty faces and idols which is a shame.

I'm fond of Han Ji Min as an actress. I loved how she portrayed her characters in Cain and Abel, The rooftop prince. I think it's not her fault/weakness that cause Hyde, Jekyll and Me flop. She was unfairly blamed for bad acting while she hadn't much screen time and complex character.

yeah, right! she did pretty well in Cain and Abel. i fall for her charm in that drama. and made me her fan in an instant. Hyde Jekyll Me was fairly written but i think it should have been patched up with just thorough editing. and i think the plot was just too ambitious and it didn't realize in the scenes.

Han Ji Min is a good actress, she is very natural in the way she acted on a role. She does not exaggerate things. And no one can question her acting ability since she already won many acting awards. The last one was best supporting actress for the movie Salute d' Amour (2015).
Hyde Jekyll Me is a good drama, but the timing was off due to Heal me Kill me (same plot), Also Han Ji Min's character was not fully develop that is why some viewers cannot relate to her and its not her fault. its the writer and pd's.
Hope she will accept this offer!!
