He added, "That's how much the character is free, active, instinctive, and so on. But Paik Jun-su is completely different from Sa Do-chan."
Jang Keun Suk noted, "He is always refined even when he moves. To describe the role, I would say he is too honest, who perfectly fits to the definition of honesty and justice."

He held the mic back at the end of the conference to express gratitude for someone special.
Jang Keun Suk said, "Aren't you curious of how we film the parts with all my characters in? There's a stand-in to film the scenes, but his face is never shown on screen."
He noted, "He always comes to the filming site and have conversations with me. He has never been lazy with his work, and I would like to sincerely express gratitude for him."
Although Jang Keun Suk did not mention the stand-in's name, he gave a hint of the actor by saying, "He is from Mnet's audition program 'Produce 101' (2017). That's why I have a special attachment to him."
