Ha Jung-woo to Open 2nd Solo Art Exhibition

Actor Ha Jung-woo will have another solo exhibition of his paintings. The show will be held in the lobby of the DongA Ilbo Media Center in Gwanghwamun, downtown Seoul from Wednesday to July 25.

Proving a talented and passionate artist, Ha has shown his works in a number of exhibitions. He had his first solo show of his works in March, displaying some 40 paintings. In April, he took part in an exhibition of works by celebrities in the 2010 Seoul Open Art Fair.

Ha's paintings mostly reflect the psychological state of the characters he plays in his films. The works he will showcase in the upcoming exhibition continue in that theme, using contrasting colors, eye-catching patterns and unique compositions.

Ha is usually tied up with acting, but he enjoys working on paintings when he finds spare time. Ha has been praised for his work in films such as "The Chaser" and "Take Off."
