Much thanks to SPRG for facilitating the interview process, we’re happy to have the lead actress of HERO, Han Chae-Ah, to sit down for a quick interview revealing her thoughts on filming the drama as well as her acting career. Appearing as a fresh-faced actress on screen, Han Chae-Ah had participated in dramas such as Bridal Mask (2012), I Believe in Love (2011), Definitely Neighbors (2010), and more. With her previous drama roles acted out either in family or romance series, the actress shared that HERO was her first attempt in an action-packed drama, “I had little chance for being cast in the action-packed TV series because I am a woman. I wanted to perform action scenes in HERO and show my new persona to the viewers.”
Continued the actress, “To me, shooting is a promise to my viewers, so I went back to shooting the scenes after resting for three days.”
“My role in HERO is a passionate detective, Yoon Ih-Ohn. She is an incorruptible, warm-hearted detective who always lend a helping hand to those in need. I don’t fight in real life. I am just your regular girl I guess! (Laughs)”
“If given the opportunity in the near future, I want to play a role in a comedy series. I can show my clumsy side in a romantic comedy series. It would be fun!”
Last but not least, Han Chae-Ah concluded the interview in hope that viewers could pay more attention to the spiritual growth of the actors in HERO, “The main characters in HERO are not perfect action heroes. They have grown a lot in this series. Please give this drama lots of love and support.”
