According to Kim PD’nim, he put a lot of thought into making the scene work. For him, the intended chemistry would only come out if Ahn Hyo Seop, who played Yeon Jun, should be portrayed by an actor with whom he is comfortable interacting emotionally.
Little did many know, that Ahn Hyo Seop and Rowoon are actually close friends in real life. Director Kim then asked the “Business Proposal” star who is the actor he is close with and at that time a sad story immediately came up on the spot.
