Casts Share their Thoughts

Hyung Sik recently shared some details about his character and said he is excited to appear in his first romantic comedy-drama in a while. At the same time, he is also nervous about his performance.

"I am both nervous and excited because it's my first rom-com in a while. I'm glad and excited to meet actress Park Shin Hye after a long time and to work together again," the actor shared.

Meanwhile, Shin Hye said she was attracted to the character from the beginning because she felt attached to the character. She thinks a lot about facing such challenges and living a healthy life.

"Anyone can fall into a slump in their lives. I tend to think a lot about how to wisely overcome that moment and live in good health, so I related to the figure of Nam Ha Neul. I felt a sense of familiarity with the situation she faced, so I was more attracted to her. I will work hard to film so that I can deliver comfort to the many people who have become tired in life," the actor said.
