“I like being in my 30s way more than my 20s. After entering my 30s, I became more mentally relaxed and comfortable. I learned a bit more about myself, so I feel like I’ve settled down now.”

“In my 20s, I felt as if I needed to do this and that. I worried about what would happen if I didn’t do something and if it would help or harm my career if I did do it. I had so many concerns like that. So I learned various things and didn’t have time to think about things.”

“I am now living for myself. If I don’t, I think that I’ll regret this time when I’m in my 70s and 80s. Since this time only exists in this moment, I want to enjoy it a bit more now instead of regretting it when I’m older.”

I think for me, living a good life would benefit my child so I think it was important to show my child the hard work put in even if the results aren’t perfect. So I thought ‘I should live my life diligently.”

“When I was young when I did a romance comedy or a melodrama, I played a straight character, but this time I was working on a love story in my 30s, so I could see that I was trying to be cooler than before. I think I was attracted to it. It was a look I hadn’t shown before, and I chose this work because I thought I could show a variety of sides.”

“I don’t feel any pressure about taking on the character of ‘Dolsing’ after 3 years of marriage, but I think I was rather looking forward to it. It was a role I hadn’t played before, so I wanted to try it.”

“There was no anxiety about the hiatus, and I had vague thoughts about whether I would be able to adapt to the filming environment again. In the past, there were a lot of older brothers and sisters, but now there are more younger friends. I saw what the seniors did to their younger friends.” Now I have to do it.”
