Lee Do Hyun, Go Min Si, and more share thoughts ahead of the “Youth Of May” finale

The 12th and final episode is set to air on June 8.
Ahead of the finale, Lee Do Hyun commented via his agency Yuehua Entertainment, “I can’t believe that ‘Youth of May’ is ending. First of all, I sincerely thank the viewers and fans who gave love and support.”

She commented, “Filming for almost half a year from the cold winter last year through the especially rainy spring, I grew really attached to Myung Hee, and it still hasn’t hit me that I have to send her away now. The beautiful and brilliant spring days, as well as the youths of everyone who lived during that time, became valuable to me while acting.” She concluded, “We were all youths, and I hope this drama will be like a gift to the many people who are also experiencing youth right now. Always be youth.”

Also, I enjoyed and was happy to work with all of the actors including Lee Do Hyun, Go Min Si, and Geum Sae Rok in ‘Youth of May.’”
Lee Sang Yi went on to share that the drama and his character Lee Soo Chan were a new challenge that allowed him to grow as an actor and concluded, “More than anything, I sincerely thank the viewers who always watch and send endless love, and I hope many people will remember ‘Youth of May’ for a long, long time.”
