I would like to thank my agency for all the support they have given me, from stage play works to encouraging me to study abroad, opening up new job possibilities for me, while respecting the path I want to take. I can only express my gratitude to all the staff members who have worked with me over the past ten years. Even in a new environment, I would like to pursue the expression that only I can do, while tackling each job with sincerity and appreciating it every day.
