“I think I may have been trained to have that sort of mindset since I was young. Because my parents always told me this as well. ‘Always be humble, don’t act up or get cocky.’”

“When I started out playing minor roles after my debut, I repeatedly made up my mind: ‘If there ever comes a time when lots of people take an interest in me, let’s not be happy one day and sad the next. Let’s be consistent. Let’s not hear people say that I’ve changed, and let’s be humble.’ I kept telling myself things like this.”

“Rather than love myself endlessly, I’m the type to scold myself, and I tend to be more nervous rather than overflowing with confidence.”

“When ‘Squid Game’ got that kind of response, one part of me was so happy, but another part of me was anxious. People around me said, ‘You should at least enjoy this moment,’ ‘Something this amazing has happened; why are you feeling down?’”

“Ever since I was young, I’ve been fascinated by the noir genre.”

“I don’t have specific goals as an actor, but I do have ambitions. That’s why I continue to take on challenges. Rather than thinking, ‘I have to become a certain actor,’ I want to live a good life and enjoy it.”
