 “There was a time I cried because I wasn’t able to properly say my lines on set of the first filming, even after practicing until 5 a.m. the previous night.”

“[Ra Mi Ran] told me, ‘In times like that, you just have to rest and not think about anything.’ That’s when I realized that grasping [my emotions] so tightly in the palm of my hand would make them explode.”

“My brother… He is a bit unwell. I always get hold of myself thinking about him. He works in a market, and it seems there still are people who harass and make fun of one with disabilities.”

“Mom had three jobs. She used to get out at 1AM to distribute newspapers, back home at 8AM just to freshen up to work in a restaurant, have one hour of sleep, and then out for babysitting. She worked a lot. I still feel sorry for that.”

“Now I can afford my family’s living. We moved out and paid all our debts. But still, my parents won’t quit their job. I’ve got to live my life at my parent’s expense. They didn’t get to enjoy their’s, supporting me. Now making them fully live their life became my goal.”
