“While acting, I wondered whether I’d ever be able to go to the Blue Dragon Film Awards. I am so happy and thankful that I received such an incredible award for my first feature film.”

 “When I was in my twenties [by Korean reckoning], I kept doubting whether I was doing well on my journey as an actress. After receiving this award [at Blue Dragon Film Awards] I thought, ‘I can focus a bit more on acting. I’m allowed to do that.’”

“I’m a homebody so once I get home, I don’t come out often or reply to many messages. But when I do go out, I have the best time and then lay down as soon as I get home.”

“When I’m alone, I mostly just lay down and watch Netflix. I feel happy even if I’m just laying down.”

“I want there to be more leeway. I’m not the type to have a lot of worries or dwell on things but I hope my thirties are a bit more relaxed than right now. I just want to become a cool adult.”

“Ever since I was in my twenties I’ve thought, ‘My thirties are going to shine and be really pretty,’ but it’s really going to be like that. Really.”
