At the beginning of my debut, I was fortunate to have performed with you in the TV series, “The Vampire Returns”. You were kind, humorous, and caring for the younger generation. Not only did I not feel any pressure at the time, I was even inspired to perform. I learned the meaning of being a professional from you.”

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for so many beautiful and unforgettable works that you’ve made throughout your life. May you rest in peace,” she added.
