On February 2, the YouTube channel Channel 15ya released an interview featuring Choi Woo Sik, Son Suk Ku, and Lee Hee Joon, the stars of the upcoming Netflix series A Killer Paradox. During the interview, Lee Hee Joon showcased a mille-feuille nabe dish prepared by his wife, prompting Son Suk Ku to jokingly remark, "Why are you pretending like you made it?"
