Early lifeEdit

Ha Seok-jin was born in Seoul in 1982.[4] He is the eldest of one son and one daughter. He entered the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Hanyang University and after completing his first year, he enlisted in the military.


After completing his military service, Ha Seok-jin returned to school. However, a friend who was working at an entertainment production company suggested he try acting. At first, Ha declined the offer, preferring to focus on his studies. But eventually, he decided to give it a try and made his debut in the entertainment industry through a Korean Air advertisement in 2005.[5][6][7][8] Although he didn't plan on pursuing acting as a career, he found it enjoyable and became increasingly attracted to it. In April 2019, he signed with C-JeS Entertainment,[9][10][11] but his contract expired in 2021, prompting him to search for a new agency. In July 2021, he signed with Management Koo.[12][13]

In addition to acting, Ha has also appeared as a cast member or guest on various variety shows including Problematic Men, The Fox's Butler, I Live Alone, After The Show Ends, Amazing Saturday, Boss In The Mirror, Entertainment Weekly, Chef & My Fridge, Running Man, and Happy Together.
