She admitted, "Before filming drama 'Signal', I thought of giving up on acting." She went on, "I searched for a part-time job but was told I was too old so I ended up washing dishes at a restaurant," shocking the audience.
Oh Yeon Ah continued, "There was this one movie I was in from long ago that was released and actor Jung Woo Sung happened to watch it. He then suggested I get cast for crime thriller film 'Asura.'"
The actress played the role of Jung Woo Sung's sick wife in the film.
Jung Woo Sung, who had helped Oh Yeon Ah back on track, made a touching remark to the fellow actress, "If your junior were having a difficult time, wouldn't you want to lead them on the right path?"
