On May 22, the cast of the film had a press conference where they spoke about the project.
During the press conference, towards the end of the event, reporters were welcome to ask questions. One reporter directly addressed the actor’s past controversy by asking the director if there was a reason Kim Seon Ho was chosen.
During the casting, there was some controversy about Kim Seonho, so he didn’t do other pieces. Is there a particular reason why you chose to convince Kim Seon Ho to play this role?
She then went on to ask whether the director had made the right choice.
Many netizens believed it was inappropriate to ask such a question, especially on a public stage with Kim Seon Ho there in person, especially as he looked quite uncomfortable. Luckily, netizens couldn’t stop praising the actor for remaining calm and the director for his honest answer.
It’d be a lie to say that I didn’t have any prior thoughts with the casting, but I had no objections.
Yet, despite acknowledging the press surrounding the actor and the controversy, he revealed that the choice to hire Kim Seon Ho was “great.”
The MC then emphasized the statement, ensuring to praise Kim Seon Ho in every way possible and cement he was the right choice for the role.
This part should have only been given to Kim Seon Ho, is what you think and you are content with the choice you made.
When the press conference had been subtitled, the clip was posted on TikTok and gained attention amongst international fans.

Although netizens knew that the question would come up, many were angry at the bluntness of the reporter. While praising the director for his honest answer…
“I would be lying if I said I wasn’t worried, but there was no alternative. I think I did well now,”
