During their introductions, Song Joong Ki made a short speech to the cast and crew. “While I was in the army, I thought a lot about days like this, when I’d be at script readings or wrap parties,” he said. “Thank you for working on this together with me. I will put my all into this.”

Top star Song Hye Kyo said, “I’m happy to have met you all through this great work. I’m glad that I’ll be working together with such excellent sunbae colleagues and hoobae actors. Thanks to them, I know everything will be great as long as I work hard.”

According to reports, whenever there were romantic moments between Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo’s characters, people in the room made comments and cheered.
