Quotes

“I don’t have any hopes and expectations in my heart. This isn’t a confession that I’m in a hopeless situation, but just that I’m living a life where I try to be satisfied with the present moment.”

“I’ve definitely learned a lot from past experiences. More than anything, the passing of my mother in September is weighing heavily on me. To be honest, I don’t really know how my life is passing by right now.”

“Ever since my mother passed away in 2020, I let go of my past. She meant the world to me and my world collapsed when she was gone. I basically reset my life. Now I no longer feel tired or burdened because I already experienced what I feared the most ― losing my mom. After that, I try to not complain, express gratitude and cherish every opportunity.” 

“My mom was my everything. This isn’t figurative, it’s the truth. My everything disappeared. I feel her absence in every moment. That blank space is always so evident.”

“In ‘Avengers,’ Hulk says, ‘My secret is that I’m always angry.’ I’m always sad, even if I’m laughing and chatting, but what’s the use in letting that show? This is how I break down sometimes. However, the one who ultimately has to get back up again is myself.”

“At some point, after I landed on a lead role, I started to realize that I should try out more diverse roles. My goal was to become an actor, not a lead actor. I think it’s important that I get to experiment with various roles.”
