Despite being a rookie, she was able to cement her name as a rising star that fans should look out for in the Hallyu scene. According to her, “Pyramid Game” is the “turning point” of her career.

“While “Crash Course In Romance” was the huge work that made me known to the public, “Pyramid Game” gave me a sense of responsibility that reminded me why I began acting,” Ryu Da In reasoned.

To recall, she starred in “Crash Course In Romance” last year, where she received rave reviews and a huge following. She even met her boyfriend Lee Chae Min through the series.

“I have friends who were actually school violence victims so it hurt a lot acting as Myung Ja Eun,” the actress shared. “If it were me, I would have transferred. There’s no reason to stay.”

When Ryu Da In learned that many middle schools thought that the “Pyramid Game” aimed to perpetuate bullying, she felt “betrayed and saddened.”

“The story focuses on the unfairness of the authorities in school and adults’ indifference in order to destroy the concept of bullying inside a small society like the classroom,” Ryu Da In said.

She said that the real world is “much crueler” and that neither the actors nor the production team expected the public to take the series as a tool in perpetuating such actions.
