When asked about her impression of her character, Morikawa thought that Numagoe is a strong woman who resolves to live on her own means since she has no boyfriend and no plans for marriage. As her character is 5 years older than herself, she says that even though she hopes to get married one day, she thinks that it's also fine to live on her own after working on this drama. Morikawa also revealed that she was feeling apprehensive at first as to whether she would be able to play her character well but after watching the first episode on 17 October, her fears were put to rest.
When asked about any interesting happenings during the filming, Morikawa revealed that Takahashi had treated her to ice cream every time she asked for it and they had fun talking about eating sweet things despite their age gap. In response, Takahashi said that he is a lover of sweet things but can't really find many people around him who share his passion. As such, when Morikawa said that she wanted to eat ice-cream, he was more than happy to buy it for her and wants to expand his circle of sweets-lover friends in future.
