Han So Hee proves her versatility as an actress in the Netflix series "My Name," alongside Ahn Bo Hyun and Park Hee Soon.
From a young mistress, Seo Da Kyung in "The World of Married," to a senior art student Yoo Na Bi in "Nevertheless," whose relationship status is quite complicated, the 26-year-old beauty transforms into a badass protagonist named Yoon Ji Woo.
The highly-anticipated action-packed series is helmed by none other than Kim Ji Min, who is the genius behind "The Liar and His Lover" and "Lawless Lawyer," together with screenwriter Kim Ba Da.
In Han So Hee's new Kdrama, her character is associated with South Korea's biggest drug organization led by Choi Moo Jin, played by Park Hee Soon.
Ji Woo decided to join the syndicate to find the culprit who killed his father, intending to avenge his brutal death. In hopes of obtaining her bittersweet revenge, she infiltrates the police under a new name while stunning the viewers with her impressive combat skills.
With the intriguing storyline and Han So Hee diving into more challenging roles, here are the three key points to look forward to in the upcoming Netflix's "My Name."
