It may be that I've deeply grown fond of it during the one year and a half, but I miss it already now when it's been 10 days since filming ended.

"I realized that was the power of a multi-season drama, and I felt thankful for being able to be in a multi-season drama. Personally, a series that was a turning point for me was ‘Game of Thrones.' I watched eight seasons of it, and although it's a few years old, it was so thrilling and stimulating. I was jealous of the actors because their acting evolved with every new season. The viewers could also see their entire history, so I was jealous of that as an actress. I was glad that I could experience that."
Kim So Yeon picked her own character when asked to select the evilest character in The Penthouse. She even described Cheon Seo Jin as the villain of all villains. She said:
"I used to say it was Joo Dan Tae, but after seeing season 3, I'm worse. Cheon Seo Jin is a villain that should not exist. She's the villain of villains, so she comes first. Joo Dan Tae comes second, and the rest are all third."
Asked about her plans following the conclusion of The Penthouse Season 3, Kim So Yeon said she would be having photoshoots and commercial shoots. She stated:
"My hair has to be long for some of them, so I'm going around trying to buy wigs. I like reading webtoons, but I haven't been able to read a single one, so I have about 10 in my to-read list. I want to read those and space out. I also want to watch a baseball game."
