When discussing the kissing scene, Jung Ryeo Won shared her unique experience with Wi Ha Joon. According to her, filming their first kiss scene was very awkward.

She explained, “When we had to kiss, it seemed like Wi Ha Joon wasn’t sure what to do. But my character in the drama is also supposed to be inexperienced. So, our hands were out of control, we didn’t know where to put them.”

Jung Ryeo Won continued, saying that Wi Ha Joon’s character, Lee Joon Ho, should be more experienced in dating, while her character, Seo Hye Jin, is not. Seo Hye Jin, who teaches at the academy, has spent all her time on her students and has no time for romance.

However, during the kiss scene, Wi Ha Joon appeared unsure. Jung Ryeo Won noticed that her co-star was quite embarrassed about their failed kiss.
