Han Ye-ri and Park Yoochun as Dong-shik showed a fresh yet sad love line within the thriller. The melo[drama] of the two people is said to create drama in order to have more tension. Han Ye-ri portrayed the character Hong-mae, who possesses mysterious charms to gain one man’s love, perfectly.
Han Ye-ri has many experiences getting to work with singers-turned-actors, as the only co-actress. Including JYJ’s Park Yoochun this time, she had worked with BIG BANG’s Choi Seung-hyun(T.O.P) in ‘The Alumni’. So what does she think about singers-turned-actors?
“I don’t think I am necessarily prejudiced toward singers-turned-actors. Because I watched Park Yoochun so much through the screen as an actor than a singer, I already had the notion that he’s an actor. Despite whether I was shy or I took time to somehow get acquainted [with him] when I actually met him for the first time; I had the impression he was prepared to be Dong-shik and wanted ‘to do well with just me’. He had a lot of passion toward the movie.”
Han Ye-ri was the only woman on ‘Sea Fog’ filming set. She worked with crew members Kim Yoon-seok, Moon Sung-geun, Kim Sang-ho, Yoo Seung-mok, Lee Hee-joon; including Park Yoochun. According to Park Yoochun’s account, Han Ye-ri was a stronger actor than anyone on the filming set.
