Cha Eun Woo said, “I read the script before reading the original webtoon.  After reading the script, I was drawn to John. I wanted to play John because I found him attractive, so I had a strong desire to challenge myself. From then on, I met the director and talked about a lot of things, and he asked me to do it together. I came to enjoy working on this drama with a grateful heart.”

Cha Eun Woo added, “On the outside, John is bright and cheerful, but on the inside, he has a sad and painful past. I try to express the feelings of sadness embedded in him. When it comes to exorcism, John is powerful. I wanted to show his contrast well.”

Cha Eun Woo took on the role of a priest and had to say Latin and Italian lines. Director Bae Jong said, “There were long lines. In the recording studio, the person in charge of the lines said, ‘Eun Woo is really good.’ There is an actor from Italy and he said, ‘I don’t understand anything.’ So he came back and did the post-recording. He memorized the lines in a few days. He’s quick at learning.”
