He spoke further about his first experiences in acting, saying, "When I received the script it was all in Seoul language; what I mean is that I had a thicker accent to my Korean, being from the country. I inserted that accent into the character during the script reading, which was well received by the director. I wanted to portray the character perfectly so I gained 20 pounds of weight and grew my hair out. I also began to wear glasses."
