On The Flip Side

About Hanah

I'm a Korean-American actor and writer based in Chicago.


Like many other Asian-Americans in the entertainment industry, I hesitated for years before giving myself permission to pursue a non-traditional career. I worked everywhere: for a criminal defense attorney, in the engineering department at a major hospital in Chicago, as an MSW student. But really, I wanted to act. Now that I'm doing that, I've found that I want to write as well. And once I started writing screenplays, I wanted to bring them to life, so here I am, filmmaking, too!


TLDR; I just love telling stories and being on set, and I do everything I can to make those two things come together as often as possible!


I love being both in front of and behind the camera not just for myself, but also because I understand the salience of representation. I'm a strong advocate of interjecting Asian stories into the American mainstream, and I want to do that in Chicago as often as possible to showcase my city’s talent as well as the beauty and complexity of my heritage.

Join me on this wild ride. As far as we know, we only get one chance at life, so we may as well make the most of it!
