While she isn't the star of "My Country: The New Age", the historical drama has been a major opportunity for actress Jo Yi-hyun, who plays the role of Seo Yeon, the younger sister of lead character Seo Hwo, who is played by Yang Se-jong. The young actress only started working in 2017 at the age of eighteen, and "My Country: The New Age" is her first historical drama.
Jo Yi-hyun has described the experience as making her nervous and trembling. But she has also expressed appreciation for having the chance to work with the more experienced actors on set, calling their collaboration an honor. Jo Yi-hyun has described herself as being able to meet with her character Seo Yeon, and that this has improved her development as an actress.
Jo Yi-hyun has also expressed thanks to viewers for kind words about her character. Jo Yi-hyun was disappointed that she couldn't get feedback in real time, as the drama was preproduced. However, she did promise to continue learning and developing as an actress going forward.
