Everything was tried for the first time. In addition, fantasy is added to it. It is an experimental and challenging work, so it was the first time not only I but the director, actors, and staff were all doing it together. Nevertheless, I was so happy. Acting made me feel happy, so the director made the scene,” he said, talking about how he received this work.
