Na said that "whenever I make a mistake, the director, Kim Hyun-seok, says 'we should do this one more time' instead of yelling 'cut'. We seem to share the same thoughts." She added, "I'd like to express my gratitude to the director, the production team, to my fellow actors, and everyone else who made it possible for me to channel all my energies into acting."
