While appearing in on PD Nah Yung-suk’s YouTube channel, Han So-hee shared her experience, explaining that to secure a study visa for Paris, she needed to demonstrate a bank balance of 60 million KRW due to immigration regulations. Facing a financial shortfall, she took on part-time jobs, earning 1.8 million KRW for a 12-hour pub shift, but found modelling for Musinsa more lucrative, paying 3 million KRW for a 2-hour session. A Ritz crackers commercial later boosted her account by 20 million KRW after taxes, and without an agency, the entire amount was hers. With this windfall, she planned to film three more commercials before pursuing her studies in Paris.

She further added, “But I ended up where I am now. After seeing the commercial our agency’s CEO offered me to debut as an actress.”
