The actress, who has visited Korea on numerous occasions, such as during press tours or to drop off her son at Yonsei University, told the reporters that “Korea absolutely has a special place in [her] heart.”

I love being there and I hope to spend more time in the future. Even though because of COVID, he [her son] isn’t able to be there, he continues his Korean language studies and teaches me sometimes.

He is a dear friend. He is brilliant and he is kind. Such a good man. I look forward to everyone seeing that film as well.
