Han Sun Hwa, who saw Jo Jung Suk’s transformation firsthand, shared, “I gained mad respect for him. Seeing him go through the extreme makeover, wearing a wig, and maintaining perfect posture was admirable.”

Shin Seung Ho added, “Honestly, it was quite shocking. I had to interact with both characters played by Jo Jung Suk. When I saw his transformation, I had no choice but to treat him like I would a real woman. It was a unique experience,” hinting at their romance.

He continued, “I had to flirt with Jung Mi. I was worried about seeing him as a woman, but once I saw him (transformed), my concerns didn’t completely disappear, but it was exciting. It was a strange feeling, something I experienced for the first time.” Jo Jung Suk chimed in, “It was a new feeling for me too,” adding to the laughter at the event.

Finally, Jo Jung Suk praised the chemistry among the cast, stating, “Everything clicked perfectly. The rhythm and tempo were spot on.”

Pilot is set to hit theaters on July 31st.
