Ji Il Joo and Lee Soo Seong tried to fill the vacancy of the lead actress by speaking on behalf of Jiyeon, who was unable to attend.

Ji Il Joo said, “I have known Park Jiyeon personally for more than 10 years. We got to know each other privately. We were already close, so we were able to reduce the time we got familiar with each other. She is a bright friend to work with. She communicates well without hesitation and is a good colleague.”

Director Lee Soo Seong said, “Actress Park Jiyeon is a third-degree taekwondo player., so she is favorable to action. Thanks to that, her role has changed more progressively than expected. In the movie, there are scenes where she rescues Ji Il Joo twice, which is a change from the original content. That’s how good her acting in action scenes is.”
