“This drama is a romantic comedy with barely any action scenes, and I’m glad about it. I wanted to try something other than action this time… There may be fun action scenes to fit the drama’s storyline, but I don’t think there will be major action going on. That’s why I’m feeling much comfortable acting in this one than I did in my previous work,” revealed the actor as quoted by Soompi.
