According to the actress, she received an audition invite from the director herself after she saw her work in the Netflix series “Juvenile Justice” which aired in 2022.

“Because of the great opportunity given to me, I made sure to seamlessly synchronize with Kim Da Yeon,” the actress shared. “I paid attention to my appearance and how I delivered her lines.”

To recall, Hwang Hyun Jung, who had short hair at the time, dyed some streaks of her hair green in order to synchronize with the original webtoon character.

In addition to that, she also made sure to understand her character’s feelings to be able to portray the trauma that Kim Da Yeon experienced and inflicted upon others.

Hwang Hyun Jung promises to return with much greater work in the future. She wishes to play a timid role, a complete opposite of her characters in “Pyramid Game” and “Juvenile Justice.”
