[NEWS] Ha Ji-won with short hair "Only overalls"

Actress Ha Ji-won has become the 'short-haired girl'.

With the release of the movie "Sector 7" coming up, Ha Ji-won has the role of Hae-jun who fights with an unknown sea creature.

She transformed into a 'short-haired girl' with only overalls for the reason that she is a member of the crew on the oil ship.

The overalls she's wearing is something oil drillers wear to prevent friction with the oil.

The productions said, "If you think these are just ordinary overalls, you're mistaken. We had to produce about 10 for Ha Ji-won alone. The whole of "Sector 7" team have similar designs and there are overalls for fashion, action, and even wire".

Thanks to the productions efforts Ha Ji-won could perform actions scenes without trouble.

3D action blockbuster "Sector 7" is about the crew on an oil ship in the middle of the sea fighting with an unknown sea creature and is to be released on the 4th of August.

[NEWS] Ha Ji-won and Yoon Je-kyoon reruns 10-million myth?

Several block busters are looking forward to war. "7 Sector" is one of the hottest movies in the center of attention.

Actress Ha Ji-won and director Yoon Je-kyoon from "Haeundae" (2009) which recorded 10 million viewers have come together once again.

Ha Ji-won has become a heroine who fights with an unknown creature, displaying more of her special action and looking like the true female warrior. Other casts include Ahn Seong-ki, Oh Ji-ho, Song Sae-byeok and more.

This movie has already been sold to 46 different countries in the film market in Cannes which was held in May. The movie has the intense story of the crew on a drill ship fighting with an unknown creature. It is an unfamiliar monster movie as well as the first Korean 3D blockbuster.

While we see if the movie will bring back the glory of 10 million audiences, if it does, director Yoon Je-kyoon can be called the hand of Midas in commercial movies. Ha Ji-won will also gain the honor of being the actress in two movies that drew in 20 million audiences.
