Narimiya commented that he is usually the one being interviewed by reporters so he has learnt a trick or two from them which he can use in his role this time. He also expressed anticipation at sparks flying between him and Kamenashi who he described as very mysterious and serious about his work. As for Hirose, he praised her for being fully immersed in her acting and looks forward to the three of them working well together on set.
Hirose said that she had played many characters of young girls who are cheerful but this time, her role is someone who's an introvert that hardly fits the usual image of senior high school girls. As for the character setting of her being a hacker, Hirose admitted that she didn't even know what the word means until she checked it out on the Internet. With regard to working with Kamenashi and Narimiya, she expressed her admiration for them and looks forward to "stealing" their acting skills through this drama.
