He continued, "I think that Korean film industry have advanced a lot, with all the amazing films produced by the senior actors/directors who are sitting in front of me right now.

He said, "Shortly after my debut, I heard from a lot of people saying, 'How come a person who looks like you, who has a personality like you could be and actor?'. But I think time has changed in a good way. I want to say thank you to my parents for letting me live in this generation, and to my fans for their consistent love and support. Thank you so much."
