In the show’s February 29 episode, she shared her experience working with the heartthrob and her reactions the first time she met him for the project.

“These days when I say I am filming a series with Cha Eun Woo, people around me would say, ‘Really?’ followed by, ‘ Are you playing his mother?’ or ‘Not his love, right?’ Rest assured. I do have a conscience.”

Reminiscing about their first meeting, the “Misty” star revealed:

“I wondered if he was even human. So, I asked him what it feels like to live as Cha Eun Woo. It was just so surreal.”

She also humorously revealed her mixed feelings about collaborating with the idol-actor.

“I was happy that he was doing the series, but also worried. How would I look next to him? So I thought, ‘I shouldn’t teach him acting. It would be over for me if he is excellent at acting too.”

She also acknowledged the heartthrob’s great character.

“It is almost unfair. People shouldn’t be that perfect.”
