She reflected on reconnecting with some of the people and projects from her child actress days, such as for Seo Taiji's 25th anniversary project, or with tv personality Kim Young Man on 'My Little Television'. This also brought up talk of her old, but still classic, sitcom, 'High Kick Through the Roof'. What are Shin Se Kyung's thoughts on her character's death on the sitcom? She replied, "I think my death in 'High Kick' wasn't just a plain death, but an important element in the story's flow. But if 'High Kick' were to come on again, I would like to avoid heartbreaking endings, if possible. (Laughter.) An actress is a profession where you deliver emotions to other people. If plausible, I want to deliver good emotions to the public. I've found that sometimes, the emotions I deliver as a character end up remaining as real scars for others."
Shin Se Kyung said that this was also the reason she chose to work on 'The Bride of the Water God'! She elaborated with, "I would like for young people, especially, to not come in contact with provocative content until they learn and distinguish their own way of thinking. I think it is like a 'butterfly effect'. Like a small flap of the wings can have widespread effect... To be more blunt, I think it is incredibly dangerous for young people to watch content with scenes where characters their own age flail knives around. This is why I think that providers of content for the general public, and those like me who are subject to that content, must take some responsibility on the matter."
