He then emphasized “I think winning such a big award is 100% the director’s credit.”

Regarding her win, the idol actress said:I thought I’d be less nervous than when I first heard the news. However, after hearing all the good things before, I’m more nervous now.

The IU then added: “Broker” gave me different keywords to think about as a person and as an actor. It was hard for me to portray them all, from separation, scarcity and healing, to family. Nevertheless, I appreciate the process and I think everyone has been a great encouragement to me.”
