It was very difficult and burdensome because I continued to make my body uncomfortable for 4 months, which I had not done in my 40 years of living. Is it right?’ I had a lot of doubts,” he said, “but I was very proud and happy to hear that they fit well.”
He continued, “My personality is a style that trusts the staff and entrusts them to me. I do what they do.” “The first thing I told the staff while doing ‘Witch’s Restaurant’ was, ‘Do whatever you want. There may never be an opportunity like this again. ‘It was. But really, our staff did everything they wanted to do,” he smiled.
In addition, Song Ji-hyo said, “There were many times when I was embarrassed, and I thought a lot, ‘Should I do this?’, but I wanted to do it properly. he explained.
