In an interview shared by The Korea Times, the actor revealed he chose to work on the project due to its well-written script. According to Choi Woo Shik, reading only the first few episodes made him curious about what lies ahead. Although he has only read a few parts of the series so far, he already described his character as an honest young man.

"Choi's character was a low-performing student who had no dreams whatsoever. However, he defies all the odds to become a successful illustrator," he said.

He also shared how it feels like to work with Kim Da Mi again, disclosing they have kept in touch since first working together. The new drama surely excites them as the duo used to chase and tried to kill each other's character in The Witch, while they are all about love in Our Beloved Summer.

Kim Da Mi, on the other hand, scored her dream "common and realistic character." Per the actress, her character is strong on the outside but soft on the inside. That mixed emotion reportedly challenged her to do better.

"I have been looking forward to it since I heard that Choi would take on the role of Choi Woong. It was nice to have him around on set, and we were able to rely on each other and have fun together as acting partners," she went on.
