After being asked how she felt being called a ‘pretty maniac,’ she said, “I’ve never seen a character like this before. The way she carries herself is different and the things she says is also unique.”
Han Sun Hwa also spoke about her chemistry with Jung Eun Ji, saying, “We had a scene where we were cursing at each other and it was really fun. Jung Eun Ji is a great actress and the writer told us that it looked like two actual friends having an argument.”
She also mentioned Lee Sun Bin. “I became close with both Lee Sun Bin and Jung Eun Ji. Lee Sun Bin is the youngest, but she was very reliable. She has great leadership qualities and I’m very thankful for that.”
Finally, Han Sun Hwa shared her thoughts on Season 2, saying, “I’m quite out of it at the moment after giving it my all for the first season so I haven’t really thought about Season 2 yet. However, I’d work really hard for it if it happens.”
