DARA said, “It was my first leading role and it was such a great experience. I still have a long way to go as an actress, so I’ll make further efforts to improve my acting and I wish I can act for another drama series soon. I felt a huge sense of burden because it was my first leading role, but all the staff and my counterpart actor Kim Young-gwang have been so nice to me, so I could act in a pleasant atmosphere.”
In the behind cuts, DARA is acting very hard, wearing a teddy bear mask and sweating a lot. According to the staff of the drama, DARA led the pleasant atmosphere at the shooting and had serious discussions on her acting with the producing staff, and worked very hard for her acting, to be praised by every one of the staff.
