“I like that when I’m on a set, it feels like I’m living today. When I’m working, I only focus on acting without anything else, so I feel at ease. Writers, directors, and actors are all needed in a project, so when we all gather to work, there is certainty in the reason for my existence.”

“I want to play a character that breaks away from a typical stereotype. Roles itself are fresh and new, so I think they’ll be another inspiration.”

“As an actress, I want to be filled with a variety of colors so that I can’t be defined as one [color].”

I want to try a melodrama. I haven’t had a work that hasn’t been stained with blood in the past 5 years, almost 5 years. Now, I want to try something like a melodrama or a romance comedy.”

“Physically and mentally, it felt like running a marathon of trials and tribulations. Every moment was pushing me out of my comfort zone and pushing me to my limits.”

“I’m the happiest when I think about [my fans and staff members] recently — they’re my anchors and pillars. Even though they must have been so tired from the hectic filming schedule and frequent travels abroad, their constant smiles and enjoyment of their job and the moments really motivate me to strive for better.”

“I think I’ve been blessed with a really strong support system and I’m surrounded by good company wherever I go. I’m filled with positive energy whenever I’m with such good company, and I’m thankful just being next to them and absorbing and learning.”
