“I was more attracted to this drama because it is a love story between a human and a half-human-half-beast. The script is also very interesting. I used to like vampire stories... well although [Kang Chi, the Beginning] is not quite a vampire story, I was very much attracted to it.”
Suzy is acting ‘Dam Yeo-wul’who is a martial arts instructor. Dam Yeo-wul has a genuine characteristic who abides by old learning. She is the daughter of a martial arts instructor and she has a born talent in martial arts. This makes her become an instructor at her early age.

In order to cover the high level action scenes as a martial arts instructor, Suzy has been training very hard from the beginning of this year. She has been training for horse-ride, action school, costume drama acting... she is now ready to show the viewers what she has not shown yet. One of the staff admired her by saying, “because she has learned Tae-Kwon-Do since she was young, she learns the actions very fast and she has a very good posture.”
