As obtained by SBS Star, he admitted that he had a hard time making Jo In Sung look unattractive.

Describing him as an “incredibly good-looking” human being, the director said that he is too good-looking to be a fugitive. 

“In the very first scene that In Sung’s character appears in the series, he’s a fugitive living a poor life in the countryside, hiding from a National Intelligence Service agent named ‘Min,'” he said, referring to Kim Doo Shik’s boss, adding, “He is seen working in the orchard. As we were filming this scene, we faced an unexpected obstacle because of his looks.”

According to the director, it was hard for them to transform Jo In Sung into an ordinary father living in a rural area.

For Park In Je, the actor was “too handsome for a poor guy” who is doing odd works under the sun.

Interestingly, the director said that they did all they could to make him look ugly.

“So, we made his clothes dirtier and his hair really messy. We did do our best to make him look ‘ugly’, but there seemed to be a limit to how ‘ugly’ we could make him look,” the director said, recalling the changes they had during the production.

The said scene was at the time when Kim Doo Shik decided to leave the agency and move to a rural town with Lee Mi Hyun (Han Hyo Joo) to raise their firstborn son, Kim Bong Seok. 

At the time, they also discovered that their son has superpowers like Doo Shik. 

Unfortunately, one agent working under Mr. Min traced the couple’s whereabouts and captured Doo Shik. Thankfully, Mi Hyun and Bong Seok escaped, but they never saw Kim Doo Shik again.
