Jo Byung Gyu felt that this experience, although very difficult, was like a gift:

I still can’t believe that this gift-like drama has come to an end, and it even makes me scared that I am calm about it. I know that the feeling of emptiness will be big but I will get through it just like my character So Mun.

⁠— Jo Byung Gyu
