During our first shoot, we had to wear masks and act only with our eyes, but Woo Bin’s energy came through his eyes was so good. It made me feel really happy and I think he was really cool. But he didn’t seem to be as happy as me.”

In response, Kim Woo Bin said, “I gave lots of signs that I was glad to meet her again, but Esom didn’t show any expression”, drawing laughter.

The actor continued, “I felt very delighted. My previous work ended late so I was very burdened when joining this project later than others. However, It was so great that I got to work with Esom”. He emphasized, “We talked about our past memories during breaks and I realized that both of us have survived and lived well. I wandered around and got scolded a lot during the first shoots, but it was so nice to act with her after a long time.”
