Her notable performances in the courtroom highlight her righteousness and desire to win every case she handles. For someone who grew up savoring success, Oh Soo Jae faces the darkest moment in her life when she gets involved in a case that leads her to be demoted to work.
She starts working as a professor at a law school, where she meets Hwang In Yeop’s Gong Chan.
After scoring the role, the actress reflected on the things she learned while playing lawyer Oh Soo Jae’s role.
Seo Hyun Jin Says She Learned While Working on Set
Speaking in an interview through her agency, Management Soop, after the series ended, she opened up about the positive things she went through while working on the project.
As quoted by The Korea Times, the actress said that the project required a long time of production. Since she put herself on it for a long time, she reportedly felt sad that it had ended already.
“I learned more about working on the set and about me as a person through this series. This particular work had a long production time and required me to put energy into various aspects of it. It feels like the time went by so fast so I'm rather sad (that it's over),” she said.
Seo Hyun Jin also learned from the veteran actors she worked with in the series, including Heo Jun Ho and Kim Chang Wan.
With the lessons she got, she established a goal to have fewer talks and thoughts and put her energy into contemplating instead. She also reminded herself to be flexible and do things with all her mind and heart.
