During his pictorial with Allure, he revealed that he did not expect the drama to be successful.

“No one can predict ratings, so I didn’t expect it to get high viewership ratings. I knew that it would be a fun drama. The script was really funny, so we just needed to live up to the script, but Honey Lee went above and beyond that requirement,” he said.
