Ryoo Seung-wan was asked about the process of casting Song Joong-ki and he said, "It was before "Descendants of the Sun". I wondered if he would accept to be in a movie where he is not the only one in the spot light. Maybe it was because he'd just been discharged but he agreed to be in the movie. I am lucky now that I think about it".

So Ji Sub added, He also got out of the army not too long ago so it has to be Joong Ki. To this, Song Joong Ki replied Im the youngest so I also think it will be me.

Upon its recent release, the film already impressively sold over 6 million tickets in Korea alone. This obviously has a lot to do with the cast and story, but it also has to do with director Ryu Seung Wan, who directed the hit movie Veteran as well. He worked especially hard to bring this important part of history to life.
