With regard to playing an abusive husband for the first time, Sato who has been known for his passionate and good-guy roles so far and is a father of two daughters in real liffe, commented that this will be a new challenge for him but he feels slightly apprehensive about having to "beat" Uchida on screen. Nonetheless, he will put in his best effort to put on a convincing performance and also relishes his first attempt in 8 years to play two characters in one drama. As for Yoshida, she said that her character has a strong sense of justice but is someone who may not be popular with the viewers so this will be a difficult role for her. However, she is excited about being in the psychological battle with Hirosue and Uchida's characters. Takahta commented that she thinks that the drama's premise is rather interesting and is secretly supportive of the lead characters even though they are attempting to commit a perfect crime.
Filming begins in the middle of next month.
