"I had a meeting with director Bong Joon-ho before receiving the scenario and I only talked about my daily life for two hours that day" said Jang Hye-jin. "As time went by, I was wondering why he called me" At the end, however, he said "If you gain a little more weight, you will be Song Kang-ho's wife". At first, I thought he wanted me to recommend someone for the role, but I was surprised that he was suggesting it to me" she said.

"So that's how I gained 15 kilograms"
