Han Ye-seul auditions for Hollywood
Ah, so she IS thinking Hollywood!
Bilingual (and Cerritos, California-raised) Han Ye-seul has revealed her desire to cross over to the U.S. film industry, in a recent press conference given at Seoul’s Silla Hotel on the 26th.
Han said, “I’ve already auditioned for a Hollywood project, and I’m waiting to hear the results.” According to her Sidus HQ rep, she’d begun receiving calls of interest from Hollywood production companies about two months ago, and sent over tapes and video as audition material.
She continued, “If the opportunity comes up, I want to give it a try. I don’t think failing at that is something to be ashamed of. Even if I don’t pass the audition round, I won’t feel disappointed and I’ll accept that readily.”
Han’s most recent project was dubbing the lead role in the Korean version of the animated film Monsters vs. Aliens, for which she has been doing promotional work recently. Dreamworks’ Jeffrey Katzenberg said of Han Ye-seul (and this is translated from the Korean translation of the original English, so apologies for discrepancies): “Han Ye-seul has a beautiful voice and suited the role perfectly. Meeting her in person, her face was as beautiful as her voice. She also has a great sense of humor.” Kiefer Sutherland called her “a gorgeous woman.”
Han Ye-seul’s last drama role was the gambling-action series Tazza, which ended its run last November. She plans to pick her next project soon — at the forefront of possible roles are two dramas and one movie. She says of her busy schedule, “When I was young, I wanted to rest after doing each project, but now I’ve developed pride in working and I don’t want to rest. I want to keep working.”
