Han Ji Hye (born Lee Ji Hye) is a South Korean actress. She used the stage name “Han Ji Hye” upon learning that her real name would confuse fans since an older actress, Lena Lee also has the same Korean name. Ji Hye made her entertainment debut as a model, then started acting in supporting roles in TV dramas such as “Summer Scent”. The next couple of years saw Ji Hye starring in low-rating dramas, but her 2007 daily drama “Likeable or Not” became very popular, topping the rating chart during its run and recording the highest rating for a daily drama since 2000.
After studying the craft of shoemaking and design in Florence, Italy, Ji Hye collaborated with existing shoe brand Jinny Kim to design and produce her own line, called “H by Jinny Kim”.
Ji Hye was in a four-year relationship with “Sweet 18” and “My Boyfriend Is Type B” leading man Lee Dong Gun. The couple had a highly publicized breakup in early 2008. On September 21, 2010, Ji Hye married public prosecutor Jung Hyuk Joon in a private ceremony in Hawaii.
