Kim Go Eun on the scenes she found memorable:

When asked what the most memorable part of the drama was, she chose the scene where the two protagonists reunited in Canada after being apart for nine years.

Explaining how they actually went to Canada to film, Kim Go Eun said, “I remember [the scene] especially because I seriously immersed myself while filming because I felt mentally burdened and worried about that scene. It was a scene that was very burdensome for both protagonists, but I was happy to have felt such emotions.”
