“For the last 10 years, I managed to successfully juggle my music and acting careers. I worked so hard to prove myself. I want to continue pursuing both careers in the future, because I think acting and singing are not mutually exclusive.” 

“Personally, I really like the sound of acoustic guitar, and I felt comfortable listening to it, so I decided to go in that direction [in the first solo album].”

“Although I started out as a singer, I have always thought of trying my hand at acting. I am really grateful for people talking highly of my acting, but I think I still have a long way to go.” 

“I tend to learn (how to act) through my experiences shooting scenes.”

“Of course it’s tiring to work without pause. But I try to find happiness inside them because if I do not, that will be really hard for me. That is my secret recipe to relieve stress.”
