“No one told me how much body fat to shed, but my personal trainer said I need to have 8% to 9% of fat for my muscles to show, so I started working out with that mindset. I had to bulk up, and I also ate a lot to the point that I couldn’t eat anymore. Then, I adjusted my diet for the filming,” Si Young shared.

“I started to restrict my diet really strictly for two weeks. It was really hard during those two weeks,” the 38-year-old actress further added. “Since I’m not young anymore, I want to try as many action scenes as I possibly can. I’m very thankful that I was given this opportunity and I want to really show fans my improvement if I’m given another chance to star in an an action film in the future.”
