Song Kang-ho, "Yoo Ah-in is more popular than Jung Woo-sung"

Yoo Ah-in, "My pride? The fact that I worked with Song Kang-ho and Hwang Jung-min"
About his popularity, Yoo Ah-in said, "I didn't really feel my popularity until I came to Busan. I have nothing to be proud about except for the fact that I worked with Hwang Jung-min and Song Kang-ho. I am the younger one so the focus has been shone on me but "Veteran" and "The Throne" could only have been possible thanks to director Ryoo Seung-wan, Hwang Jung-min and director Lee Joon-ik and Song Kang-ho".
Hwang Jung-min, "China? I speak Korean best"
Hwang Jung-min appeared out of nowhere at a public event and was asked about his plans about making a move into China. He said, "I have never been offered anything in China yet. I don't know if they know me but what matters to me is the storyline. It's most important that I can communicate with the public when I act something out. But I speak Korean best so I want to stay here".
Director Ryoo Seung-wan, "Watch "The Throne" and you can see Jo Tae-ho die"
Ryoo Seung-wan also said something. "This is the first time I've seen so many female fans at my movie. This is all thanks to Yoo Ah-in next to me. I liked working with Yoo Ah-in. Those of you who had a problem with Jo Tae-ho should watch "The Throne" because you can watch him die".
Jeon Do-yeon, "If my daughter can't act then I'm going to stop her"
Jeon Do-yeon said, "If my daughter can't act, I will stop her" when she was asked what she would do if her daughter wanted to become an actress as well. If she's not as good as me then I won't let her be one. She's got to do better than Cannes".
Director Choi Dong-hoon, "I plan on making a prequel of "The Assassination""
Choi Dong-hoon was asked about a prequel and he said, "The story was fun during the beginning of the Japanese invasion. But I have to study a lot. I plan on making a prequel when I think I am capable of telling a good story".
