"It may be very difficult to keep the virtues of purity, passion and sacrifice of love in real life but if I were in the same situation with the drama, I would do my best to keep my love," he said in the interview.

"The kind of love that one can create positive energy toward each other's work or every part of life through the stability that love gives. I think it is also important to keep oneself as they are.
