The basic idea was that I want people to feel Yeongwoo’s heart,”
She also said, “I did not want to imitate the character (with autism spectrum disorder) implemented through the media, so imitation was excluded as a top priority. I was afraid that I would implicitly remember real people or characters and approach them in the wrong way, so I was wrong. “

She also said that as an actor, she met a professor in person to play a character with an autism spectrum and studied by reading the diagnostic criteria directly. Even before the full-scale filming began, she was very careful.
