At the press conference held after the movie screening, Tang Wei explained, “My character Seo-rae suffers many hardships and difficulties in her life. Because of that, she is put in a situation where she cannot express everything about her life. She has to hide who her true love is and also the way she shows her feelings even when she meets that person.”
She continued, “When I interpreted and portrayed Seo-rae, I tried to think of expressions that can help me go inside her emotions”, adding, “I can’t speak Korean, and there was also a limit to my memorizing of the lines. In that process, I had to express them with my facial expressions and I thought it would be better.”
