Kim Han-Mi (Kim Jae-Kyung) is a character in “Again My Life” who initially had a bad relationship with Kim Hee-Woo (Lee Joon-Ki) but eventually became good friends with him. Fans of the original novel and webtoon liked her personality, and many hoped she would date Kim Hee-Woo. Although this never happened, Kim Han-Mi is still one of the most attractive characters in “Again My Life.”
Some aspects of Kim Han-Mi have changed since the webtoon’s drama adaptation. Let’s take a look at them.
1. The way Kim Han-Mi first meets Kim Hee-Woo has changed.
Kim Han-Mi first appears as a school bully in the webtoon. She associates with school gangs and asks her classmates to sell fake event tickets so she can profit from them.
Kim Hee-Woo, on the other hand, discovers her plan and beats the school bullies. Kim Han-Mi realizes Kim Hee-Woo is stronger than her bully friends and returns the money she collected to Kim Hee-Woo.
Kim Han-Mi reappears in front of Kim Hee-Woo another day and expresses her desire to be friends with him. Kim Hee-Woo declines her request, stating, “I don’t like the smell of cigarettes from you.”
In the drama, Kim Hee-Woo meets Kim Han-Mi shortly after returning to the past. Kim Han-Mi becomes mad at Kim Hee-Woo, who appears puzzled. She wants him to assist her with quickly paying for the items she bought at the convenience store.
2. The way Kim Han-Mi and Kim Hee-Woo became close has changed.
Kim Han-Mi begins studying to go to college because Kim Hee-Woo suggested it in both the drama and the webtoon “Again My Life.” In the webtoon, Kim Hee-Woo discovers Kim Han-Mi is with a prosecutor, Kim Seok-Hoon, on her high school graduation day.
Kim Hee-Woo finds it odd that Kim Seok-Hoon only has two sons. Kim Hee-Woo finds out that Kim Han-Mi has a special relationship with Kim Seok-Hoon, so he gives Kim Han-Mi help with the study to get closer to Kim Seok-Hoon.
In the drama “Again My Life,” Kim Han-Mi and Kim Hee-Woo are involved in a fight with a group of guys. Following the fight, they are both taken to a police officer. Kim Han-Mi’s father, Kim Seok-Hoon, appears at the police station and slaps the man who tried to beat her.
When Kim Han-Mi walks out of the police station, she invites Kim Hee-Woo to go eat food with her, indicating her desire to be close to him.
3. Kim Han-Mi’s attitudes toward her father have shifted.
In the webtoon “Again My Life,” Kim Hee-Woo suggests Kim Han-Mi apply to a college with a major she is interested in. Kim Han-Mi listens to him, and she applies for a political diplomacy major and is accepted. However, her father, Kim Seok-Hoon, calls her and asks her to major in English. It’s because he wants her to keep a low profile.
Kim Han-Mi does not object to his father’s request and chooses the English major. After graduation, she becomes a regular salary worker.
Kim Han-Mi appears in the drama as a stronger character who can refuse his powerful father’s request. When her father asks her to change her major, Kim Han-Mi rejects the request. She tells Kim Hee-Woo that she was even more motivated to choose her own path after hearing her dad’s request. Kim Han-Mi majors in journalism and goes on to work as a reporter after graduation. When prosecutor Kim Hee-Woo is working on a drug case, Kim Ham-Mi reports and broadcasts it to assist Kim Hee-Woo. She is a strong supporter of Kim Hee-Woo.
