Kim So Hyun discussed a particular scene in which Ga Eun, her character, found out the true identity of Yoo Seung Ho’s character and held his hand. “During filming, Seungho-oppa made jokes, so filming that scene was fun. We filmed rehearsals brightly, but for actual filming, we became more serious.”
