She has a bit of an aggressive personality, and it’s okay to piss off the other party. ” This made Lynn re-examine her way of acting. He said: “Mioleni’s moods are all written on her face. This is very different from my previous performance experience. At first, I really thought, is it right to be so self-willed? But in the end , the audience will definitely like this show as much as I. “A “princess” with true temperament and courage.”
