He recalled that the duo began interacting like friends but soon enough, they grew closer. Via Koreaboo, Kang Ki Doong told Daum News, "Since we’re friends in the drama, too, the director told us we had to have good chemistry, so we ended up becoming close for real very quickly. Soo Hyun was the one whom I got close to the fastest and the easiest on set. Since we’re the same age, we could relate on a lot of things," he said.
