Eugene said, "I took a 5-year break before I joined 'The Penthouse'. I was worried about starting again as five years is not a short time." 

She continued, "So, I needed some time to think whether I wanted to join 'The Penthouse'. Oh Yoon-hee was such a wild, emotional and mad character as well. I wasn't sure if I could pull it off well."  

She went on, "But everybody around me continuously told me that I would be able to pull it off. They gave me courage." 
EugeneThen, Eugene shared what she did to play Oh Yoon-hee well. 

Eugene said, "I believed it was important for me to earn sympathy from our viewers with my character. If they couldn't sympathize with her, I felt like I would feel uncomfortable about it. I did my best to understand her." 

She resumed, "Before I joined, our writer told me that she didn't want Oh Yoon-hee to be acted by someone so obvious. She encouraged me a lot." 

While filming, I asked her many questions about Oh Yoon-hee. Then at one point, she told me that I knew Oh Yoon-hee better, so there was no need for me to ask her anymore. She believes in me."
