Ha Ji Won is crossing boundaries by appearing as a North Korean on the small screen and a South Korean on the big screen.

In MBC’s The King 2Hearts, Ha Ji Won is appearing as the first female instructor of the North Korean Special Forces, Kim Hang Ah. She is successfully building a love relationship with the South Korean Prince Lee Jae Ha (Lee Seung Gi), while at the same time showcasing her fluent North Korean dialect.

Viewers have been showering her with praise for successfully pulling off her acting skills as a North Korean.

In the film Korea, to premiere on May 3, however, Ha Ji Won will be switching sides to become South Korea’s table tennis player Hyun Jung Hwa. She’ll be appearing alongside Bae Doo Na, who will be the one taking on the North Korean role with her North Korean dialect as the table tennis player Lee Bun Hui.

Ha Ji Won thus seems to have taken over the entire peninsula. Her two roles come from different sides of the division, but both have something in common: they make her body go through a lot. In The King 2Hearts, she became the instructor of a Special Forces unit, and in Korea, she appears as a table tennis player that continuously delivers strong smashes.

A source close to Ha Ji Won said, “The King 2Hearts is already airing, but Korea was filmed first. Ha Ji Won acted in both pieces with all her passion. You can look forward to it.”
