    I was going to say, the best thing about W is that it introduced me to her. However, I had already seen a lot of her dramas and liked all of them. Shame on me. Great actress!

      In September 2014, the South Korean media reported that a petition was being circulated to boycott Han's appearance in TV commercials. The petition stemmed from Han's younger brother allegedly bullying a fellow airman while both were in mandatory military service that resulted in the latter's suicide. The negative publicity was exacerbated by Han herself having once been appointed as a goodwill ambassador for the Republic of Korea Air Force.

      She stopped dramas because movies make more money, just like the other famous actors do, but she didn't hit it big yet

    Just read her profile - she was blackmailed by her x manager for nude pics in 2013. Does anyone know the outcome of that and did that scum go to jail?
