With that complex character, he admitted to struggling to portray it.
"Taek-rok suffers from the panic disorder due to his past trauma. He hates becoming a burden on his co-workers and is very protective of them. That's the kind of person he is, but he has lost a close colleague, so I need to express that change in emotion and feeling as well as his medical suffering," he said.
Fortunately, he was able to pull off his skills with the help of the other cast members.
Lee Sung Min appears in the series alongside Jin Goo, Kyung Soo Jin, and Lee Hak Joo.
Meanwhile, Kim Minjae, Kim Hong Fa, Kim Tae Hoon, and Geum Kwang San complete the list of cast members.
