Today, an online press conference for My Name was held. Director Kim Jin Min, Han So Hee, Park Hee Soon, Ahn Bo Hyun, and more attended the event.

My Name is a story about a woman who joins a crime gang and infiltrates the police as an undercover agent to discover the truth about her father’s death. It’s director Kim’s second project with Netflix, following Extracurricular.

Since various teasing content was released, all attention has been focused on actress Han So Hee, who rose to stardom with The World of the Married. In My Name, she plays Ji Woo, a woman who joins a gang to avenge her father’s death then goes undercover as a cop.

The actress shared, “When I read the script, I felt her desperation as she moved forward with just one thing in her mind, revenge. I’ve expressed feelings with words and facial expressions, but never with my body. I had a lot of fun reading the script, and the first thought that hit me was ‘I really want to do this.’”

Moreover, Han So Hee heralded a shocking makeover with My Name. “Ji Woo is someone who gives up on her future and name for revenge,” she explained. “Revenge is everything to her. After losing her father at a beautiful age, she has no other choice but to set out to avenge his death. And I felt sorry for her but at the same time admired her tenacity.”

When asked about challenging her first action genre, she responded, “At first, I went to an action school feeling a bit hubris and took one class. And it didn’t take long for me to realize that I’ll go nowhere if I resort to petty tricks. I knew I had to invest a lot of time.”

She continued, “Also, there was a lot of pressure because I wasn’t doing the scenes by myself. I had to complete the scenes with other actors, so I was careful not to injure them/ It was tough.”

Meanwhile, My Name will be unveiled on Netflix on October 15th.
