In the upcoming weeks, the mini-series will take viewers through the joys and sorrows of the lead characters, teased cast member Son Ye Jin. She also said the drama would explain what life, death, existence, and live mean to these women. The actress then assured the K-drama fans that they could never be disappointed while watching it.

"I liked the script that sufficiently expressed life, existence, death, love, and the joys and sorrows of life. I approached [the role] thinking that she looks a bit cold and might be more rational than me. However, I felt limited in expressing her only as a character, so I started filming while thinking, I'm Cha Mi Jo. I liked all her lines and scenes that I can't mention just one", said the actress.

"I'm sure [the drama] won't go against your expectations because it includes a good script, great staff, and amazing actors. As much as you have been waiting, you won't regret it, so please look forward to it", she added.
