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".
