Grid: Lee Soo Yeon on the sci-fi concept of the series
In the interview, when asked how she got the idea for the sci-fi, Lee Soo Yeon explained that while working on the latest episode of “Forest of Secrets 2,” she came across a film that she really liked. The film made her wonder, “What would happen if the opposite situation of this film happened?” and it made the gears of his brain spin in various directions.
She wanted to do something she had never done before. Previously, she dealt with current and real social issues that needed her to explain basic situations with lots of dialogue. Throughout the filming process, she felt the actors were overwhelmed. Therefore, she decided to come up with a series that would have fewer lines and a situation without prior information.
Speaking further, she explained that the idea of the solar wind was not something that came about in an instant. The Ghost, who is the creator of the Grid, is someone who travels through space and time and appears after 24 years to protect a murderer.
She also pointed out that the concept of time-warp is predominant. Taking everything into consideration, she has to come to a conclusion that will explain why anyone would do such a difficult thing to move through space and time to do something like this.
Going through everything, she also agreed on the fact that they simply cannot ignore the issue of the environment. Solar winds are an environmental issue talked about in this series, and it also ponders issues around global warming and rising sea levels.

But no one knows about her past as she maintains a very resolute and enduring exterior on the front.
She continued further and talked about Lim Si Young, saying that she really wanted her to take on this role. She doubted it because her character doesn’t have many lines.
