“I want to become someone who dreams. I have done well focusing on what I like since I was young. Being ‘off’ of work is a really valuable time, and I think it is a driving force in my life.”

“I made my debut at 16 years of age. I think I have much more of an aptitude for acting.”

“As an actress, the most important thing for me is to do the script justice. I always strive to be proactive and hardworking to improve myself and my skill set to make up for anything that I am lacking as an actress.”

“The name Yeon Seo means ‘one by one like the flow of water.’ I think I became more feminine after changing my name. I used to be quick tempered, but now I feel more composed.”

“I’m never the kind to take on a lot of projects simultaneously. I prefer to focus on one project at a time to give it my best. So right now, People With Flaws is the only thing I am working on that I can share with you. For the others that come after, you’ll just have to wait and see.”

“I’m a homebody. I sleep 18 hours at a time too. Doesn’t everyone?”

“My self-care routine is quite simple, to be honest. That includes working out regularly to make sure I keep my core and immune system strong, a balanced and healthy diet in order to have all the necessary micro- and macronutrients, and if I have the time, I meditate in order to clear my mind.”

“I think the first and most important step of self-care is to take some time to focus on yourself. Find a hobby, stay active, stay happy and calm.”
