Martial arts director Jung Du Hong picked actress Ha Ji Won out of all Korean actresses for her superb action skills.
During the press conference for the upcoming show “Lady Action” that took place on May 6, Jung Du Hong claimed, “There are no actors in Korea who we can actually label as ‘action stars.'”
“Action stars are people like Jackie Chan or Jet Li – actors who have great experience in action films. We don’t have actors who are that skilled in action in our country,” Jung Du Hong stated.
“But there is one person who has shown a great amount of action in dramas and movies, along with her excellent acting skills. It’s Ha Ji Won. I acknowledge her,” the action-director claimed.
Meanwhile, “Lady Action” stars Jo Min Soo, Kim Hyun Joo, Son Tae Young, Lee Si Young, Choi Yeo Jin, and Lee Mi Do, as the show realistically documents the process of the stars learning various action stunts. The first episode is set to air on May 8 at 9:15 p.m. KST.
