    II. Her Journey

    It wasn’t all glitz and glam for the young actress. Han So Hee’s hard work and struggles helped her be who she is now.

    The 25-year-old natural beauty moved to Seoul with less than US$250 in her pocket and found herself working in a beer joint – before landing work in MVs alongside K-pop idols SHINee and Jung Yong-hwa.

    According to an article on Daum, in a since-deleted blog post from 2018 Han claimed that she came to Seoul alone at just 19 years old, with about 300,000 won (US$247) in her pocket. She then started working part time to support herself.

    According to Daum, Han once worked in a beer joint in the trendy Gangnam district, claiming on her past blogs that she “worked from the moment she opened her eyes to sunrise”. Despite the hard times, Han “does not regret this as it made her who she is today”.
