The character I took on this time was very evil, so I was very nervous before starting filming, but thanks to the director, staff, and many people, I was able to finish filming safely. I am delighted to be able to appear in such a big project, even for a short time, and we ask for your love and interest in ‘구경이’, which everyone passionately filmed. I'll see you again with another character."
