Kang Ji Young, who filmed the Japanese movie “Assassination Classroom” during the past one year, reflected on the year that she spent in Japan.
During a press conference for “Assassination Classroom” held on August 18, Kang Ji Young made her first public appearance in Korea since leaving the popular girl group KARA about a year ago.
She said, “I was active in Japan for about a year, and it really wasn’t easy. It was actually really hard. It wasn’t simply something you can do by speaking a little bit of Japanese. I thought, ‘This isn’t something that just anyone can do.’”
She continued, “I learned a lot over the last one year. I studied abroad in London, and I grew a lot through the experience. I was lonely living alone in Japan, but my family, friends, and fans cheered me on, so although it was lonely and difficult, it was a year in which I was able to grow.”
