When Harada got the offer for this movie, he was asked by the director to get a driving licence for large-sized vehicles since he had to play a bus driver. As such, Harada went to a driving school for 3 months and recounted that his teacher suggested that it was a good idea for him to get the licence and that he will have something to fall back on in case he loses his job in future.
When asked about their impression of Nanase who plays their son in the movie, Harada praised Nanase for his smooth complexion and good looks while Yamamoto said that he has a nice character too. Harada revealed that they chatted a lot during their filming breaks and he felt an added sense of affinity to Nanase probably because he is of the same age as Harada's own son. When the MC asked Harada if his son also looked good like Nanase, Harada smiled and said that his son is not that tall.
The movie will be released first in Niigata from 20 January and one week later nationwide.
