In the world of showbiz, every move of a celebrity can become a topic of discussion, and actress Han So-hee knows this all too well. Recently, she once again made headlines with what seemed to be an intricate collection of tattoos adorning her body. However, as the saying goes, appearances can be deceiving, and it turns out these tattoos were nothing more than well-crafted stickers.
On the 18th, Han So-hee took to her Instagram to share a series of captivating photos. Among them, one particular image caught everyone’s attention—the actress, known for her roles and undeniable beauty, appeared to be flaunting an array of tattoos that covered her entire body. This triggered a flurry of articles in various media outlets, all discussing her bold choice of body art.
The clamor grew loud enough that Han So-hee’s agency, 9 Ato Entertainment, felt compelled to respond. They stated unequivocally to OSEN, “All the tattoos featured in the photos are, in fact, stickers.” This revelation might have quelled the rumors, but it also left fans and onlookers wondering: Why opt for temporary tattoos that create such a lasting impact?
Han So-hee’s relationship with tattoos has always been a point of interest. In 2020, shortly after her breakthrough in the JTBC drama ‘The World of the Married’, old photos surfaced depicting her with vibrant tattoos and even smoking. The controversy stirred conversations about her past and the choices she had made. In response, a source close to the actress shared with OSEN, “Those images were taken during Han So-hee’s modeling days.”
Interestingly, before her debut, Han So-hee had a permanent tattoo of her grandmother’s birth flower inked on her arm. However, all the tattoos that caused so much speculation were reportedly removed post-debut. In an interview, she expressed, “I am the same person now as I was then. My convictions haven’t changed. But life comes with constraints, and I’ve learned to adapt. This is me now, a work in progress. It’s amusing to label it all as ‘the past’ when it was merely 3-4 years ago. I was content. I believe my female fans appreciated that aspect of me.”
Nonetheless, the fascination with Han So-hee’s ink journey persisted. The debate continued to swirl even after her clarification. As is often the case, having a tattoo or not having one can draw equal amounts of attention. This time around, she garnered more eyes with a selfie showcasing a multitude of densely packed tattoos. The twist? They were confirmed to be nothing more than well-executed tattoo stickers.
In the midst of it all, Han So-hee’s career has been on an upward trajectory. She graced the Disney+ drama ‘Soundtrack #1’ last year and is gearing up for her appearance in Season 1 of the Netflix original drama ‘Kyungsung Creature’, set to release later this year. Presently, she’s engrossed in filming for the second season of ‘Kyungsung Creature’.
The world of entertainment is a realm where illusion and reality often intertwine. Han So-hee’s tattoo sticker saga serves as a reminder that appearances can be deceiving, and what seems permanent might just be a fleeting artistic choice. As fans eagerly await her future endeavors, one can’t help but wonder what captivating twists she’ll bring next—both on and off the screen.
