Son Seok Koo also added, “Every time I filmed, I had one goal. It was ‘let’s satisfy the director and get him off work’. I think such good results are all thanks to the director. I will make sure to have a drink with him.”

Regarding her win, the idol-actress expressed, “I thought I would be less nervous than when I first heard the news. However, after hearing all the good things earlier, I am more nervous now.

IU then added, “‘Broker’ gave me various keywords to think about as a person and as an actor. It was difficult for me to portray all of them, from separation, deficiency and healing, to family. Nevertheless, I appreciate the process, and think they all became a great encouragement to me.”
