Kusanagi who is working with Mizuhara and Yamamoto for the first time, commented that they are both beautiful and young actresses so it's a refreshing experience for him to be "sandwiched" between them. As for Yamamoto who is playing the daughter of a rich family and a doctor, she admitted that she is feeling the pressure but she hopes to convey the innocent feelings of trust in others although the story is a revenge tale. For Mizuhara, she thinks that the moment when Haruka discovers her feelings for Koichi will be worth looking out for and she hopes to play a character who will enjoy the support of the viewers.
Kusanagi and Fujiki last worked together in the 2013 FujiTV drama SP "Taikouki ~ Saru to yobareta otoko ~" where Kusanagi played Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Fujiki played Oda Nobunaga. At that time, Kusanagi commented that it was a good experience to act with Fujiki since there was a lot of interaction between their characters. This time, they are playing enemies so he is eager to see new sparks between them. As for Fujiki, he revealed that he didn't really get to interact with Kusanagi off screen back then so he hopes to communicate well with the latter this time to produce a good drama.
