It is frightening to face a challenge.
You cannot know what will happen.
You can avert your gaze, but the challenge is still there.
So you must face it, fight it, confront it with all your courage, and ensure that each step takes you forward, never backward.
Even facing despair you must continue.
Never give up. Never stop believing in yourself.
Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee, Jet Lee.
These men are my heroes. When I was a child, I constantly mimicked their moves.
I felt such excitement and strength imitating them.
But I was also fascinated by their artistry.
I realized that what moved me was their gift for inspiring others.
I memorized their moves by studying their action sequences on the screen.
What I have accomplished has not been easy.
But I have always believed in myself. Because I believed, I was able to continue to pursue my dream. Because I persevered, I have been able to work with Jackie Chan, Tom Cruise and so many famous actors who have motivated me to grow as an actor. Dreams―that is what they gave me.
Confidence - that is what they showed me. Now it is my turn. I will apply my determination to honing my art.
