Actress Han Ji-min is receiving high praise for perfectly performing a blind character, especially with how she played with her eyes.
On the 21st, a short film Two Lights: Relúmĭno (starring Park Hyung-sik and Han Ji-min) was released on YouTube. In the film, Han Ji-min performs an aroma therapist, who has lost her vision yet still smiles with confidence.
During the premiere of the film, Han Ji-min said, “While I was meeting and having conversations with blind people, I realized most of them lost their vision on only one eye. So one of their eyes was usually moved towards the middle, and I wanted to look like that. So I practiced a lot.”
Two Lights: Relúmĭno is a story about a woman and a man who meet at a photography club for the blind. The film’s director is Huh Jin-ho, who also directed Christmas in August and One Fine Spring Day.
