The actress said, “With Dan Yi’s growth as a character, I think I grew even more as an actress. Above all, I was happy for the loving eyes of the viewers. I ask you to keep an eye on me until the end. Thank you for taking good care of me and Dan Yi. Until the last episode, her growth period will continue. I hope that the courage of the tireless Dan Yi can convey hope and comfort.”
Lee Jong Suk, who played Cha Eun Ho, said, “When I met the warm, mature character named Cha Eun Ho, I was able to look back on myself and grow both internally and in acting. I would like to thank Jeong Hyeon Jeong, the writer who made Cha Eun Ho, director Lee Jung Hyo, who pointed out his delicate emotions, the production crew who made the warm and pretty drama, and the actors who performed in the drama. I’ll keep the precious memories we made together for a long time.”
