As an actor, you’re naked emotionally; you’re revealing yourself emotionally.
A relationship can be deeply damaging without anyone leaving marks on you.

I find that kid actors are great reminders of the simplicity of acting. As you get older, you can sometimes complicate things a little more.

When I was acting for the first time in ‘Squid Game,’ I listened to a lot of music. I listened to a lot of music by Sanulrim, Yoo Jae-Ha and Kwang-seok. In particular, I listened to the song ‘Reminiscence’ by Sanulrim a bunch. Listening to that song assisted me emotionally.

Here’s my theory: If a person gets worldwide fame at a young age, they’re emotionally frozen at that moment. For me, that’s 15 to 18, so you find yourself in your mid-20s being a glorified 15-year-old. What could possibly go wrong?
