And Director Park shared that they’re close beyond words.

They’re very close, and they get along very well. There’s no need for words.

But Director Park added that he was first worried when he knew they’d be working together.

At first, they looked a little too similar as if they’re brother and sister. So I was worried at first.

And that worry turned into a complete opposite worry once he saw them together on set.

When I saw them together, I was worried they were dating.

— Director Park

Director Park stressed that despite how close they are in real life, they were professionals when the cameras were rolling.

They’re both professionals, so regardless of how close they are, they battled it out in front of the camera. Their chemistry is amazing both as people and actors. I’m benefiting as a result.

— Director Park
