Kim Junsu sang the praises of his co-star Hong Kwang Ho at the press conference, “Hong Kwang Ho is known for being a talented actor in the Korean musical industry. I had never seen his musicals, but I could feel his performing capability when I saw his performance video. I could also feel it during rehearsals, that his top position wasn’t that easy to obtain.”
