In the drama, Abe has quite a number of scenes where he gets beaten up e.g.he gets slapped by Fukada in the second episode. Recounting this, Fukada said that she had used so much strength in that scene for the first time in her 20-year-old career and apologised to Abe about it. As Fukada is playing a mother to a 11-year-old girl for the first time as well, this has made her consider her own age and she hopes to learn a bit about how to be a mother through this drama.
Due to scheduling issues, the scenes involving the family were filmed at one go so Abe expressed his wish for them to have more scenes together. Fukada also echoed the view that they have got along very well like a family so she also hopes to spend more time together with their "daughter" Yamada.
