Director Cha Young-hoon, who directed 'When the Camellia Blooms' and 'Meteorological Administration People: The Cruel History of Office Love', and writer Kwon Hye-joo of 'Confession Couple' and 'Hi Bye, Mama!' have teamed up for the first time.

Director Cha Young-hoon said about the casting of Shin Hye-sun and Ji Chang-wook, "It was not easy to bring these two people together. Due to the production schedule, we couldn't even include a script. I was upset, but as filming in Jeju Island was delayed, it came naturally."

He also did not spare praise for the actors. Director Cha Young-hoon said of Ji Chang-wook, "An actor with a strong core. There is a purpose for each scene, but when filming, you can get caught up in the atmosphere and lose sight of the essence. I am like that too, but Ji Chang-wook has a strong grip on the core of the character. “So it’s very flexible. It has the charm of filling in the gaps so abundantly,” he praised.

Regarding Shin Hye-sun, he added, "I think she is one of the few actors in Korea who can portray melodrama, human, comedy, and slapstick all at once within a certain tone and manner, but without making the character jump around."

Ji Chang-wook said about Shin Hye-sun, "From the first time I saw the script, actress Shin Hye-sun came to mind a lot. Three months had no choice but to be Shin Hye-sun," and "There is no question about her chemistry. Shin Hye-sun is bright in real life. She was like an endorphin on set." He said.

In response, Shin Hye-sun said, "I asked you to praise me a lot at the production presentation, and he gave me a lot of praise," and said, "When I actually saw the look in Ji Chang-wook's eyes, I thought it could be sold as a tourist product. Yong-pil in the script is very attractive, but he is better than Yong-pil in the script." Yongpil, which I felt on set, was more attractive. The oppa himself is funny. He is not a person who laughs easily at others, but he was very funny. He is not a person who can't hold back laughter in front of the camera, but I think a lot of the actual laughter will be broadcast on this set." revealed.
