“Kim Go Eun debuted before I did, so she’s a senior to me in terms of acting. That’s why I receive a lot of advice from her. Before I started filming for ‘Tunnel,’ she told me that it’s crucial to stay alert while filming a drama. She also taught me how to adapt to the environment on set,” Lee Yoo Young shared.”

“Kim Go Eun watched my drama and gave me lots of praise and encouragement. I didn’t think I looked very pretty in the first few episodes of the drama, so I told her that I came out really ugly, and she responded, ‘What are you talking about? You are so pretty. Your character is great and your acting is amazing.’ She gave me a lot of strength.”
