She explained that he told her it was only for promotional purposes, and that it would greatly help her promote the movie.

“I was tricked into it by my agency’s CEO. ‘Home Run’ was an OST song for the film I shot with Kim Seung Woo, called ‘Reversal of Fortune’ and I performed it to promote the film.”

As a result, Ha Ji Won went all out and showed everyone that not only was she a talented actress, but quite a performer, too!


Her killer dance moves and revealing stage costume was a huge topic of discussion among her fans, and she was quite the sensation.


Furthermore, in 2000, she was also the onstage persona for WAX, who was a faceless artist at the time.


When she was asked about whether she enjoyed the memories, Ha Ji Won confessed that she was more embarrassed by it.

“I performed it twice, but both times I really just didn’t want to do it. I’m so embarrassed.”
