The plan for the drama started when we wondered what our reaction would be if a tragedy had happened," he concluded.
As per Cho Seung Woo, he expressed interest in the world's context where the present and the future co-exist. The actor added how it's scary to see South Korea in 2035 being completely wiped out; he also shared the whole drama project is intriguing itself, so he wanted to try something new since it is his first time venturing into a different genre.
Moreover, Park Shin Hye also narrated how she made preparations for the series to portray her role effectively and revealed she has been practicing scenes with the action team to get used to the movements she will execute in the filming. The actress further noted how she and Cho Seung Woo share synergy compatibly on set as she can completely rely on the actor whenever she gets overwhelmed on some part of the scenes.
