She explained, "I always have this fear, thinking, 'Can I do this well? What if my emotions aren't enough during filming?' For countless time, I wanted to just run away."

She continued, "The downside of being an actress is that no one can help you. It gets really lonely once you stand in front of the camera, all alone. It was a constant battle between this urge to run away or to complete the filming greatly."

She said, "I have a sense of responsibility for a project or my acting skills. I have to show an improved version of myself, but there is definitely a limit to how much I can evolve. There are certain standards and expectations that I must satisfy, so it's hard for me sometimes."

She added, "A month before premiering a new project, I can't sleep. I know that my lack of sleeping doesn't guarantee the project's success, but I get so nervous when I think about the staff and cast members who went through so much together."
