“The thing that’s changed for me after filming ‘All of Us Are Dead’ is that I’ve gained great people [in my life].”

“I don’t get hurt [by seeing hate comments]. I even feel happy when I get hate. Because I think [getting hate] means that I did that good of a job acting and portraying [my character’s] emotions.”

“When I was filming ‘All of Us Are Dead,’ I intentionally tried to fill up my acting [with intensity and emotion], and when I was filming ‘Squid Game,’ I emptied myself before acting.”

“There is no end to acting, it’s simply limitless no matter how much you study it. There’s also so much I still don’t know.”

“I want to try a range of characters. I’d like to play a character who lives for a long time, a cute character, a cool character, and so much more.”

“I did want to get my name out there. But looking back, I didn’t despise it. Through it, I was able to grow and put in more effort. This year, I’m starring in another drama. I play a short track athlete in the midst of a slump. I hope you like this one too.”

“I often change my hobbies and have severe emotional ups and downs, but I think acting is the only thing that was never not fun. I want to try a new role in the future and I don’t want to miss out on opportunities.”
