Yukawa commented that despite working with Ono for the first time, he thinks of her as a genius and wants to bring out her talent by writing difficult scenes for her to act in. With response to this, Ono revealed that she is raring to go and happy to take on the challenge. In addition, as she has to play a pianist who has an internationally-renowned conductor father, Ono has been learning how to play the piano since early May. As for her first-time collaboration with Eguchi, Ono expressed excitement at working with such a respected actor she has been seeing on TV before she made her debut.
On the other hand, Eguchi who is also appearing in a Yukawa drama for the first time and has two teenage daughters with his wife Moritaka Chisato, commented that he has come to realise that a married couple's relationship gradually changes as the children grow up. As such, the family dynamics will probably change in a very different way by adopting a child who is not related by blood.
