Daniel is a character who is growing due to some incident, and when he came out to society after being discharged from the military, he wanted to be a friend whose appearance, acting, singing ability, etc. “I chose it because I am a fan,” he explained. “As I do it, I have a lot of thoughts and a lot of attachment.”
