“Honestly, I got butterflies whenever she was around. She’s so pretty.”

Wi Ha Joon further explained that besides the actress’ top-tier visuals, the storyline also gave him “little butterflies” in his stomach, which meant a mix of excitement and nervousness, but in a good way.

“There’s something about reading with her that gives me those little butterflies. When we filmed that one scene, it felt like the background music was playing, and I felt weak in the knees.”

The same goes for Jung Ryeo Won, who also expressed feeling the same emotion, especially upon reading the script.

“I actually felt like I could actually hear the background music when I was filming that scene. I was just so excited.”
