As mentioned earlier, actress Kang Na Eon disclosed in an interview that it was challenging for her to portray the role of a bystander, Im Ye Rim in Pyramid Game. As reported by Sports Seoul, the actress says, “I had to watch from the side as Suzy (played by Bona) was subjected to ‘school violence,’ and it was difficult even though I wasn’t the one experiencing it myself.”

She further expresses, “If it were me, I would report it first,…What was unfortunate about the drama was that the students did not actively receive help from adults… except for teacher Yoon Na Hee (Ahn So Yo), she had no adults to help her.”

In Pyramid Game, Kang Na Eon’s character Im Ye Rim also has a subtly formed romantic connection and bond with the promising student Sim Eun Jeong (Lee Ju Yeon) in the school’s swimming team. While talking about this particular aspect of her character, the actress says that she “tried to delicately express the profound emotions between love and friendship so that the chemistry between Eun Jeong and Ye Rim could stand out.”
