The scene was filmed for two days as a key scene in the main character’s growth. Despite the fact that mud was buried under the sea breeze in the chilly weather of November, Park Jung Min and Go Jun had to act in a bare-body action sequence using their whole bodies.

This action scene was improvised and considered the hardest scene to shoot throughout the entire film. There was also a funny situation where a handful of mud thrown by Park Jung Min during the filming hit Go Jun’s face.

Park Jung Min and Go Jun showed such a realistic fight to the extent that the staff watching on the set doubted that they were actually fighting.

2. To capture the most famous scene, the cast and crew waited until the real sunset came out

The scene where Kim Go Eun and Park Jung Min watch the sunset together on the hill was filmed at the right timing as the cast and crew waited for the actual sunset to appear. This scene was also used as the movie’s poster.

3. Park Jung Min and Kim Go Eun accidentally kissed behind the scenes

All the audience in this scene wears hip clothes, with Kim Go Eun’s Seon Mi being the only one who wears rustic clothes while cheering for Hak Soo. This means to say that Seon Mi is the story’s female protagonist who only looks at Hak Soo. She is rustic, but to Hak Soo, she is a beautiful woman. In a deleted scene, Hak Soo even proposes to Seon Mi and gives her a ring.
