“I’m watching ‘SKY Castle’ while working hard to film ‘Legal High,’ and I was envious that it was a drama where actresses were key players from the start. I even thought about which character I could’ve portrayed. The actors were so good at acting that I thought it was a relief that I remained as a viewer.”

“The roles that I’ve played until now were strong characters, so many of them were lonely. […] I now want to play a character who’s loved. I feel ambitious about traditional melodramas and also want to appear in a ‘womance’ [that talks] about the friendship between women.”

“The job of an actress isn’t special and it’s my everyday life, so I think that I need to work as consistently as possible.”
