Han Hyo-joo chooses courtesan role


Han Hyo-joo

Actress Han Hyo-joo recently signed on her next movie, “Haeeohwa.”

In the period film, the 27-year-old actress will play the role of a versatile gisaeng, or female courtesan living in the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910).

The title of the film means a flower that understands human language, but it also refers to a reigning beauty.

More detailed information about the plot has not yet been released but the film will start shooting sometime in the first half of next year.

Han first entered the spotlight in 2003 after winning a beauty pageant organized by a food company.

Since then, she has appeared in numerous features, but she began to focus more on films rather than drama series a few years ago.

She is currently shooting “Beauty Inside” and has just finished filming “C’est si Bon.” The two will be released next year.

Han’s recent projects were “Cold Eyes” (2013) and “Love 911” (2012).
