Regarding his first return to movie acting after 7 years, Joo Won shared, “I wondered if I’ve been waiting for this work. It’s been such a long time since my last movie so I thought I should do this work”. He added, “While reading the scenario, I kept thinking ‘Is it possible?’ so I wanted to try it. I believed that it would be a great movie for my filmography if I performed well, so I decided to take the challenge. I was really greedy with this work”, revealing the reason for his appearance.

Joo Won said that he bulked up 7kg and even shaved his head to portray Carter more perfectly. The actor said, “There were scenes where I have to reveal my body. It would be the viewers’ first impression of Carter so I tried to build my body as much as possible. This is the shortest hairstyle I’ve ever had. I made lots of changes, such as my voice, or the surgery marks on the back of my head, to look like Carter in all parts”, adding “I literally became Carter. It was a little difficult for me to return as Joo Won after the filming”.
