When asked what she would have done in her character’s place, Park Sun Young made the shocking confession that it actually happened to her in real life. She explained that it did not go how she thought it would when she told her friend the truth.

I’ve actually witnessed a friend’s husband’s affair.

After much thought, I told my friend that her husband was cheating on her. I thought they would get a divorce. But they didn’t, and she continued to live with him in pain.
