“I learned that loving and accepting yourself as you are is a way of guiding yourself to a better path. I think having complete faith in myself is the biggest factor that keeps me going in my acting career.”

“I’d like the thoughts and feelings I experience each year to be captured in my filmography. I hope that as my emotions change depending on my age, they will be conveyed well.”

“True beauty to me, is when a person is able to ignore the judgment of others and knows how to cherish and love themselves.”

“These days, my greatest focus is on myself. From a young age, I was often called a ‘Kid adult.’ I began to consider myself a ‘yes girl’ because of the pressure of wanting to be kind to the people around me. I thought it was a compliment to hear that I was mature. Now, it’s become too much for me. I regret that I wasn’t able to be honest about my own emotions because I was worried too much about how others perceived me.”

“As an actress, my goal is to hear, ‘The show is interesting if it stars Moon Ga Young.’ I want to become someone who has at least a small positive influence on others.”

“Love is incomprehensible. Humans cannot understand it. We are doing everything that is difficult.”

“I personally do not differentiate love from compassion. There are times when I meet someone better than me, but there are also times when I feel comfortable as I am in a position where I can offer. I think both are considered forms of love.”

“I believe all relationships are formed from things I lack. That is why we have to take good care of ourselves so that we can sufficiently give and receive love from others.”

“This sadness meant we were at our finish line. This happiness meant we were together. Sadness was the form, happiness was the content. Happiness filled the space of sadness.”
