Soompi’s translation:
“I didn’t realize my body was in agony during the shooting. I assumed it was just burnout. It was the first time I was nervous about going on-site. I believe my body was giving me a signal, but I dismissed it as a mental problem. I felt very sorry for the director and my seniors. “I even sobbed after shooting because I felt sorry.”
Park So-dam, the Phantom actor, discusses her present health situation and the many methods she takes care of herself.

She emphasized the beneficial things she gained from her terrible experience after coming out about her production struggles:
“I’ve regained my health and I feel glad these days that I can meet plenty of people and welcome them with my own voice. Despite progress, my skin has been a disaster owing to hormonal abnormalities.”

“I’m finding my body’s flow by going to pilates five or six times a week. While my energy has not totally recovered, I can only think about how pleased I am compared to this time last year.”
