"I was worried about how the film would turn out because it was creatively and technically challenging. The film has its pros and cons but I'm relieved it mixes comedy, action, and adventure elements in a deeply entertaining package," he said.

Fortunately, his experience as a person who loves western culture somehow made his work way easier. According to him, his younger self once thought that western culture was cooler than Korean culture. But as he grew older, he realized that there is no superior or inferior in terms of these industries since they beautifully differ.
