Lee Se Young graced the cover of the latest issue of Big Issue magazine.
In the interview following the photoshoot, the actress talked about what makes her character in The Red Sleeve so special.
Lee Se Young said, “My favorite scene is at the end of the fifth episode when Deok Im swears that she would protect Yi San at all costs. I thought it was very brave of her to say that as a mere court lady. Her words made me want to trust her beliefs,” showing her affection to her character who lived in an era where there were many restrictions in place.
Lee Se Young then compared the profession of acting to the profession of sports, “I want to continue my acting career throughout my life, so I try not to compare myself to the others. I’m constantly battling with myself every day, like one of those athletes. Once I achieve something great, I try to move up my game the next day. I know that if I keep going, I can make some changes without being jealous of others. I just keep in mind that it’s not possible to win all the time.”
