“To play Moon Ji Woong [in Twenty-Five Twenty-One], I searched what costumes Deux wore back in the 1990s.”

“The concept of youth, in my opinion, cannot be defined with certain standards.”

“When preparing for a role, I adjust the temperature of my daily life to it, which seems to have influenced [my personality]. Rather than worrying about what would happen if I take on a role of a character who is depressed or an evil character, I am looking forward to it.”

“I want to experience various things. I have a lot on my bucket list, but first, I want to try exciting sports like skydiving and paragliding.”

“The more I act, the more I fall in love with it. It is also fun to talk about acting with other actors. I am absorbing their viewpoints and methods. I try to keep an open mind so that I don’t get stuck in a box. I think this attitude may change my late 20s and my 30s.”
