Beautiful Jun Ji-Hyun (全智賢) has been the top Korean star for several years now, since her memorable role in the movie “My Sassy Girl.” This year she is for the first time playing a lead part in a Hollywood movie, “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan,” opposite Hugh Jackman. She adopted the western name Gianna and learned to speak English for the movie, making her a serious contender to become the first truly global Korean star. We spoke with Jun Ji-Hyun in Seoul about her booming career, her personal life and what makes Korean women so gracious and unique.
