“I worked really hard in my 20s. At the start of my debut, I would only eat kimbap and sleep for two hours and work. I’d think, ‘I can enjoy life once I’m in my 30s.’ I never did anything half-heartedly and did my best at all times. But now that I think about it, I have no memories of me enjoying myself during my 20s.”

” Until I went to the military, I only worked and didn’t look around me at all. Whether as a singer or as an actor. Even achieving 90 percent is an accomplishment, but I wouldn’t be satisfied with it. A lot of that pressure went away when I was in the military and spending time with others who were younger than me.”

“[Having both careers in singing and acting] is only possible because there are constantly people who want to see me. I sincerely love both fields, so I always have fun.”
