2. When the production of this k-drama was planned, the idea was put forward to make 12 episodes for the first season, a number a bit more similar to the episodes we usually see in Korean dramas, however, following the trend of Netflix’s original series was chosen to reduce them to only 8.

3. In order to carry out this drama, it was necessary for drama writers to adapt the story of Chon Kye Young, but those chosen for this project were already known, as they worked together on the production ‘Coffee, do me a favor’, which was launched in 2018.
