Joo Jong Hyuk said, "I could just keep reading it without getting bored. It was filled with fun episodes, and I thought I would enjoy acting in the series." 

He added, "But I did get angry at my character while I watched the series. I watched the whole thing twice. The first time, I paid the majority of attention to my acting. So, I wasn't able to focus on the storyline much." 

He continued, "The next time I watched it, I focused on the storyline. Whenever 'Young-woo' appeared, I would smile because she was so cute. But as soon as I came out, I put a serious look on my face."

Joo Jong Hyuk chuckled as soon as he heard Yang Se Chan's name, as if he knew what the question was going to be about. 

The actor answered, "Yes, yes. I've seen those comparison photos. I even thought to myself, 'He could totally pass for my older brother.'" 

Then, he sent Yang Se Chan a video message, "If we ever get the opportunity to meet each other, do give me a hug. I feel honored that I'm hearing many saying that I resemble you. I love you!" 

As he said this, Yang Se Chan's iconic penciled-goatee was drawn over him in graphics, making him look even more similar to Yang Se Chan.
