Lee Sung Min said, “I was more determined after knowing actor Song Joong Ki would star in the drama this time. I had always wanted to work with him someday. While I was still hesitating, Joong Ki said he would do it, so I decided to join him.”

In response, Song Joong Ki also shared, “I had met Sung Min sunbaenim several times before, but unfortunately, we couldn’t have any opportunity to work together. If he hadn’t taken on the role of Chairman Jin Yang Chul, I would have rejected my casting offer either. Many actors of my age want to act with a senior like him.”
