On the March 1st episode of JTBC's 'News Room', the star of critically-acclaimed films like 'The Handmaiden' and '1987: When the Day Comes' featured as a guest. In response to questions about her popularity, Kim Tae Ri stated, "I'm thankful to hear it if people have praises for me. I'm just working hard with what I'm given. It hasn't really shaken me that much."

She also commented on her previous statement, "Popularity is something that disappears," saying, "It's something I said during the promotions for 'The Handmaiden'. It's a film by Director Park Chan Wook, and because I was chosen from the audition of 1 vs 1500 other actresses, a lot of people gave me love and compliments. I said that as a way to deal with all of that."

As for her support of the ongoing 'me too' movement, Kim Tae Ri said, "It's because I know of the perpetrators' social positions and the fact that the power they have over others is too great. I can't pretend to know the suffering of the victims, but I thought that it was a big problem because if it had happened to me, I would've stayed silent as well. I hope this movement doesn't end with exposing the offenders and their apologies, and I'd like for it to be a chance for improve society."
