Kim Hye Yoon, who takes on the role of Im Sol the strong female lead, shared that her standout scene was from episode 2. It's the moment when Im Sol rushes towards Sun Jae, holding a yellow umbrella with a big smile. For her, it marked not only their first meeting but also the beginning of their relationship.

Song Geon Hee, portraying Kim Tae Sung, the endearing second lead, also chose the same scene as Kim Hye Yoon. He noted that the epilogue of episode 2 stood out to him as the finest moment. He was struck by the portrayal of Sun Jae's emotions and his instant feelings for Im Sol upon seeing her holding an umbrella for him and how he falls in love with her.




Lee Seung Hyub, in his role as Baek In Hyuk, reminisced about a scene from episode 10. He recalled the moment when Baek In Hyuk humorously parodied Jung Dae Man (Mitsui Hisashi) from Slam Dunk, declaring, "I want to do music."

However, the positive feedback from viewers, who found it entertaining, allowed him to enjoy the scene despite his initial doubts.
