When asked about this, Park Seo Joon responded, “I also heard about that. They said Park Seo Joon put Park Min Young in the drama. That doesn’t make any sense.”
“I do not produce a drama with my own money. The director does the casting, and I cannot influence it. The director did say that he wasn’t sure about the Park Yoo Sik and Sung Yeon roles and asked if I have any recommendations. This is because I was the first one to be cast,” he continued.
He went on to explain, “I always say this, but I think [acting together] is fate. Once casting is complete, I take it as fate and make up my mind to do well together. They say I caused the casting, but I am not a person with that much influence. It took a long time for me to be confirmed for this drama, as well, and it would’ve be ridiculous for me to say who I want to work with during that time.”
