The PD and the script writer of this drama are the duo Shin Woo Chul and Kim Eun Sook (신우철, 김은숙) who have collaborated on “Lovers in Paris” and “Lovers in Prague”, and this drama is the third drama of the “Lovers” series.
The representative of SBS states, “We have decided to invite KJH and KHN to lead this drama. Currently, we are negotiating contracts with them. We expect to see their good performances.” The storylines are based on the 1998 movie “A Promise (약속)” starring Park Shin Yang and Jun Do Yun. However, the original violent portion of gang activities in the movie will be excluded so that TV viewers could enjoy watching this light-hearted comical drama.
