Wakui who has never acted in a Kitagawa drama before, admitted that she felt that someone younger than her might be more suitable for the role but she decided to take the risk by accepting this role. As for Tanihara, he commented that through his role, he felt that it was an important thing to treasure the feeling of being in love and caring for the person you love.
