Hollywood is a world famous place where many people's dreams begin and less than 5 percent of Asians work there as production designers. Han Yoo-jung is one of the Asians and the first Korean who survived in the strict and harsh atmosphere of Hollywood and became a production designer. We meet her on "Heart to Heart".
Han started her career by designing a stage for drama students at her school, USC. One of the students who requested stage design to her was a film producer and he recognized her outstanding aesthetic sense, quickness, and leadership. With this connection, she was chosen to participate in the Korean movie "Love" (1999) as a production designer and art director. And since then, she built her career from being a set decorator, art director, to production designer. She has worked on many films and TV programs with stars like Andy Garcia, James Coburn, and Mick Jagger, and her abilities as a production designer is highly recognized in Hollywood. And one of the films she worked on, "Better Luck Tomorrow" (2002), was able to enter the Sundance Film Festival as a low budget film. She has been working as a production designer in America for the last 9 years and the mainstream production companies she worked with include Paramount, Warner Brothers, ESPN, MTV and NBC.
On today's "Heart to Heart", we meet Han Yoo-jung and listen to her experiences and works in Hollywood and the behind the scene stories of her success.
