Han Chae-Young to debut in Hollywood
TV actress Han Chae-young, 30, dubbed as "Korea's Barbie Doll," is preparing to debut in Hollywood.
After finishing filming the MBC drama, "A Man Called God," in which she stars, Han flew to the U.S. early this month.
She met with bigwig entertainment agencies in Hollywood such as Creative Artists Agency (CAA) and William Morris Endeavor (WME) Entertainment, according to her management agency BH Entertainment..
A BH spokesman said that Hollywood filmmakers have been more interested in Asian actors and actresses.
"A variety of agencies are showing greater interest in Han as she is not only proficient in English but has notable beauty and experiences as well," he said Tuesday.
The star has made efforts to advance to the overseas film stage.
Earlier, Han was to star in horror film, "Soul Mate," a joint venture with a New Zealand filmmaker for her overseas debut. However, she has turned her eyes to the United States as the film was dropped due to internal problem.
Han, now staying with her family in Los Angeles, plans to go to several auditions and then to conclude an acting contract with a U.S. agency for full-scale entertainment activities there, he noted.
