Ohno commented that he had his reservations about starring in a romance drama but felt more assured as this is a love comedy rather than a pure romance story. If it had been a true-blue love story, he wouldn't have been able to take it on as he feels embarrassed about it. As he has to speak lines which he has never said in real life, he feels that this will show a different image of him. Ohno also revealed that although he was quite interested in the title of being a CEO and had dreamed of having a namecard with the CEO title, he wasn't as keen in the work that a CEO does so he's glad to be able to try being a CEO in this drama without actually having to work as one.
Filming begins at the end of February and the rest of the cast will be announced at a later date.
