Jung Woo Sung: “Firstly she is a beauty. Good personality, may be it’s because she is born from family that stays together with grandparents, so the soul of treating people includes the warmth. Of course the duration of 5 months can be said is not long, so the impression she left to me still need to continue to monitor to be known for sure… hehe! As an actress, she is a very potential actress. Not only acting, but the beauty she possessed seems to be even bigger advantage. Especially for project type of love and romance… And it’s reported recently that author No Hee Kyung brought along familiar people in the surrounding to do charity. I saw the photos of activities where they stood in the middle of Myungdong street in the very cold weather to ask for donations with bare hands. Really applause for her.”

Han Ji Min: “The dog in the drama is actually a female. She prefers Kang Chil, very obedient to him. So she always made me jealous in heart. Haha!”

I heard that it’s now been labeled with the adjective of “eating drama.” The drama series of eating, haha! And there is a lot of scenes with animals. Dog, rabbit, vulture, elephant, giraffe, lion and so on. Besides, crying scene also a lot.”
