LOS ANGELES—Korean American actress, Ho-Jung stars in the Los Angeles premiere of the classic solo play, “The Human Voice,” about a woman at the end of a long-standing, significant relationship whose lover has left her and intends to marry another woman. Not intent to placidly acquiesce and play the meek victim, she will engage her lover in one more conversation, not about to let go without a struggle. Does she have a chance? After all, she managed to attract him in the first place. What will be the outcome?
Born in Seoul, South Korea, and raised in Honolulu, Ho-Jung was trained in New York by Gene Frankel, who directed her there in “A…My Name Is Alice.” Her other New York stage credits include “Martyrs, Fighters, Victims & Thieves,” “The Bee Opera,” “Walking Through The Night,” “OneFamilyOneChildOneDoor,” and “The Knickerbockers.” In Los Angeles, she appeared in the world premiere of C.Y. Lee’s “The Body and Soul of a Chinese Woman.” She appeared opposite Samuel L. Jackson in the motion picture “Lakeview Terrace,” directed by Neil LaBute; in “A Beautiful Life,” directed by the award-winning Alejandro Chomski; plus a long list of independent feature films. Her television credits include recurring appearances on the Fox series “Talk Show with Spike Feresten” and the international series “Love Without Borders” (shot in Moscow), as well as guest roles on “My Generation” and “The Gilmore Girls.”
