Likewise, the search word ranking for the drama remains very high.
Producers of the show commented, “We are experiencing great interest that is reflected in not only the ratings, but also offline reactions. Due to this support, the actors and staff members are able to avoid getting weary and have strength during filming despite the sweltering heat. We will work hard to deliver a good drama until the very end. We are very thankful and ask for a lot of love until the final episode.”
