Han was first discovered in a teenage beauty pageant organized by food corporation Binggrae in 2003.

She won the Best New Actress awards at the Korean Association of Film Critics Awards and Singapore International Film Festival for her performance.
Han then starred in two highly successful TV projects and rose to fame – KBS daily drama Like Land and Sky with Park Hae-jin in 2007, and SBS masked-adventurer series Iljimae with Lee Joon-gi in 2008. Both dramas drew solid viewership ratings nationwide throughout its run with high viewer ratings and launched Han into a household name. Afterwards, she was cast in another indie film, Ride Away, which debuted at the 2008 Jeonju International Film Festival.
Han then filmed the Korean-Japanese telecinema co-production Heaven’s Postman, which also featured pop star Jaejoong from TVXQ (now JYJ). After several postponements, it was released in theaters in late 2009, and broadcast on TV in 2010.
