“I chose Yunho for the part of Nam Jin in order to make the movie more realistic. The actor had to speak in perfect Jeolla province dialect like Nam,” movie director Yoon Jae-kyun was quoted as saying.

“When I met with Yunho and conversed with him, I learned that he is perfect for the part in every way. He had the respect for Nam Jin, passion for the part, and the dialect I was longing for,” he added.
