“The first thing that comes to mind is family, too.” 

I don’t have a specific goal in front of me as an actor, but I don’t want to stay in the same place. I want to keep trying new things and growing step by step.

“I really felt the need to break away after I reached my 30s. I felt, ‘I should have tried it. Should I try now at least? Since my sibling who’s three years younger than me already did so, I couldn’t also do it. Even if I have a rebellious spirit in my heart, I tend not to put it into action. However, these days, those feelings are being ignited a little. I have a lot of thoughts.”
