In particular, Han Ji Hyun’s character, Joo Seok Kyung bullied both Eun Byeol and Jenny, which took a lot out of her.

I tried to act in the boldest way possible while bullying them.

And the need for her to always go after another character with rage even resulted in unintentional weight loss.

I was so exhausted that I lost weight. I lost 5 kilograms (~11 pounds) since I first started the drama. My ‘sunbaes’ were worried and told me to eat more so I can gain weight. And when I gained a bit back, they noticed.
