Kim: I think I like short dramas because it allows me to make a lot of attempts and come across various stories. It's also good for warming up as an actor. An entire narrative is inside a single short book so you can learn how a story should flow by working on a lot of single-episode dramas. That's why I want to tell new actors to try acting in as many one-act dramas as possible.
