Starlet Han Ye-ri starred in an action thriller which might be mostly appealing to male viewers due to the jam-packed masculine scenes.
"The Hunt," which hit local theaters early this month, is set deep in the woods and follows hunters who arrive to mine gold.
"I think the sound of gunshots is one of the most impressive parts of this film," Han said. She added that she practiced shooting at an indoor shooting range in preparation for the film.
In the film, Han took the role of a mentally slow teenage girl who lost her father when a mine collapsed.
"Playing a retarded but innocent girl wasn't that hard. But I had to act as if I was younger than my actual age which was the most difficult part for me," Han said.
Han majored in traditional dance at the Korea National University of Arts. She got a part as a dancer in a short film in 2007 and has been acting ever since.
"Previously, I had a dream of becoming a choreographer," she said. "After I stepped into the film industry, however, I've totally been fascinated. I feel captivated when actors give life to the script. The whole filming process gives me another pleasure different from dancing."
