As the 2011 WOWOW drama "Shitamachi Rocket" became a huge hit last year when it was remade by TBS, Yusuke Santa Maria was asked who he would like to have to play the three leads if "Kinbika" is to be remade by a private network. He joked that he would prefer for the cast to remain unchanged but if he really had to choose someone else, he would like to have Cocorico's Tanaka Naoki do it. Upon hearing that, Taki also joked that he wanted Shoei to play his character. While suppressing his laughter, Nakai said that although he was initially glad about the choice of his co-stars, it seemed like they didn't feel the same way. As such, he jokingly suggested that his close friend Sato Koichi can play his character if there is a remake in future.
