“I never experience one-sided love.” 

Before entering high school, I watched the movie ‘La La Land’ then decided to study in an arts high school.” 

“The first time I appeared on TV was when I played a role of a passerby. It was a really short scene, but it was amazing to see myself on TV and I felt really good about myself.”

“I always enjoyed entertaining others and making them laugh. I saw actors on TV who made people laugh and I thought that it would be really worthwhile and fun to be an actor. So that’s how I started acting.”

“All Of Us Are Dead enabled me to think deeply about love. Although the love was not fully requited, I was able to learn about the difference communicating to another person with love can make and about the affectionate feeling one can have for another.”

“I prefer comfortable and cute clothes. Rather than wearing tight clothes, I enjoy wearing a loose, overfit style.”

“I believe that social media is a space that I can use to express myself—the person I am, my true authentic self—this is what I want to express.”
