CareerEdit

Han Go-eun won the Super Elite Model Contest in 1995,[1] and after several years of modeling, she began acting full-time in 1998. That year, she made her acting debut in the film City of the Rising Sun,[2] but stayed in television in subsequent years.

Despite the popularity of her television dramas such as Bodyguard (2003), Han was criticized early in her career for poor acting, particularly for her voice articulation and pronunciation.[3]

But she later earned praise for her roles in More Beautiful Than a Flower, Love and Ambition (2006),[4] Capital Scandal (2007), and The Reputable Family (2010).[5]

In 2011, she starred in Daughters of Bilitis Club, part of the single-episode anthology Drama Special. Named after the American lesbian rights group, it was public broadcaster KBS's first lesbian-themed drama and was a frank portrayal of three same-sex couples across multiple generations. But it was later pulled off the air due to public pressure.[6][7]

Afterwards, Han played antagonists in Me Too, Flower! (2011),[8] and Goddess of Fire (2013).

She also hosts Diet Master, a weekly program on cable that invites guests who have struggled to lose weight and provides help from health experts.[9]

In 2018, she star in Same Bed, Different Dreams 2: You Are My Destiny, a reality show which have received favourable feedback and become well known in some international countries.

In 2019, she star in Miss Korea/I Miss Korea, a cook stay variety program which showed her traveling to different homes around the world and showcase her cooking skills.

Personal lifeEdit

She lives in America from middle school until college, which allow Han to speak fluent English and Korean.

Han's sister, Han Seong-won was also a model.

From 2001 to 2003, Han had a highly publicized relationship with Park Joon-hyung, singer and member of boy band g.o.d.[10]
