During the interview, Lee Se Young spoke up about the ongoing #MeToo movement. She began, "It's a very meaningful movement. Honestly, it's not like we don't know about it. It's just that there were people who were not able to tell others that such actions were taking place blatantly, albeit quietly. I'm not under the impression that things will change overnight from the #MeToo movement. But I'd like to think that people are more willing to change for the better than it seems."
The actress then revealed that because of such crimes occurring behind the scenes in the entertainment industry, she had considered giving up her career in acting in the past, when she was a child actress. But, "There are a lot of good people in the world too."
Lee Se Young then expressed that males are not necessarily exempt from sexual harassment. She recalled a scene during her past project 'The Best Shot', when she had a scene where she touched co-star Kim Min Jae's butt. She said, "I think males experience such things more often than one would think, half knowingly, half unknowingly. I also wondered whether I was blind to these things or not. I am trying to take more interest and learn, and I realize that there was so much I did not know. Overall, I hope that thanks to those who are finding the courage to speak up, things will change slowly. I hope that there are no more victims who suffer."
