According to the actress, there was a scene during the film where she felt like she was not yet ready. She chose not to tell anyone due to her fear she might cause a delay. However, Jeon So Nee approached her after noticing her uneasiness and asked if she needed more time.

Because of that, Kim Da Mi felt more linked to her and eventually became her best friend in real life.

Meanwhile, Jeon So Nee compared Mi So and Ha Eun, saying that their opposite personalities can already be noticed because of their hobbies. Mi So loves abstract painting while her best friend is more into still-life painting.

Meanwhile, Byeon Woo Seok shared he received all the help he needed from his co-stars, especially since it would be his big screen debut.

"Kim and Jeon helped me beat my nerves by sharing my worries. They gave me a lot of advice while we were shooting together, which was really helpful in crafting my character arc," he went on.

Soulmate’s release date is yet to be confirmed. But it was disclosed it would premiere in March.
