Quotes 

“It’s gotten so important as I’ve gotten older for me to be able to do what I love, including acting.”

“I don’t take sleeping pills whatsoever. I try to do things that make me fall asleep, especially when I’m shooting.”

“Have you heard of mukbang? I don’t know why I watch them, but I have to watch them. I just automatically watch those mukbang videos before I go to sleep. Maybe they make me calm.”

During the process of putting this [Minari] story on-screen and working with Isaac, I got to understand my parents more. I got to reflect on their youth that I wasn’t familiar with. I realized how difficult it must have been for them to raise children.”

“For an actress, as you grow older, you are, in a sense, responsible for your face. Meaning the way you live your life is often reflected by the contours of your face; we have to live with that in mind.”

“As actresses we get stressed about a lot of things, like beauty. As we grow older, we don’t necessarily get prettier, so we think back to times when we were younger.”

“Even if I have some wrinkles here and there, these are just by-products of the life I’ve lived. Each and every wrinkle is me.”
