“I was grateful. That could’ve been his secret method, and it could’ve been his own unique ‘skill,’ but every time he would give me advice, I was grateful. There were many people on the set, so he would quietly tell me [the tips] and leave,” Jung Hae In added.
Who is Lee Jong Suk behind the camera?
