‘Squid Game’ Actress Lee Yoo Mi Shares her Thoughts After Winning Rookie of the Year

‘Dazed’, a magazine that presents original content every month based on fashion and culture, has released pictures with actress Lee Yu-mi, who clearly announced her presence as Ji-yeong in the Netflix original series ‘Squid Game’ through the November 2021 issue.

In an interview with ‘Dazed’, actress Lee Yu-mi had an honest conversation about the story behind the Netflix original series ‘Squid Game’ and how she felt about winning the Rookie of the Year award through the movie ‘Young Adult Matters’ at the 2021 Buil Film Awards.

Lee Yoo Mi said, “The atmosphere was quiet and peaceful at the awards ceremony. I thought that even if I did win an award, it wouldn’t feel real. I attended the ceremony casually, not expecting an award, but I heard my name being called. From that moment on, it felt weird because I’d never received an award before. There, someone came up to me, praised me for what I did, and handed me the trophy. Everything felt very new to me, and I was proud because it felt like I was being rewarded for all the efforts I had put into acting.”

When asked how she wanted to be remembered, Lee Yoo Mi responded, saying, “I want to become an actress who makes people become curious about myself.” She continued, “I want to make people wonder about my work and the roles that I am about to play or have just played.”

The completed pictorial and video of ‘Dazed’ with actress Lee Yu-mi can be found in the November issue of ‘Dazed’ and official social media channels such as website, Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube.
