Ha Ji Won may be switching to a career in fashion.
Just kidding. The female lead of The Time We Were Not In Love may be celebrating her 20th year in the entertainment business soon, but she's showing no signs of slowing down - obviously.
For now, let's ogle at her fall pictorial for the November issue of Elle Korea, in which the talented 37-year-old models a bag she designed for a top designer label, inspired by the uplifting '90s song "You are the Universe".
Cutting a voluptuous figure in this season's knitwear, Ha Ji Won is shown standing in the middle of a mock living room with a contemporary colour-blocking design.
Ha Ji Won is one of several women who've been selected by the designer label to design a bag unique to them, to be auctioned off for charity as part of the Seoul Peekaboo Project. The funds raised will go towards children with facial disfigurement. Ha Ji Won represents international medical NGO Operation Smile, for which she is the first Asian woman ambassador.
Don't you think she looks ravishing? And she looks so, too, in The Time We Were Not In Love, the Korean version of the award-winning Taiwanese drama In Time With You that starred Ariel Lin and Chen Bolin. Seasoned actress Ha Ji Won plays Oh Ha Na, a 34-year-old career woman who's best friends with same-age Choi Won played by Lee Jin Wook. For now, they're each other's wingman, but as always, fate has its own plans…
