Eric shared that he found it difficult to comprehend the scene when Park Do Kyung smashed the car window out of anger.
“I found it hard to understand when Do Kyung got angry and smashed the car window. Hae Young was in the car after all, and so I thought, did he have to do that?”
Giving another example of his difficulty in understanding Do Kyung’s mean actions, “It would be when Do Kyung told Hae Young, “Does it run in your family to bark up the wrong tree?” I thought it would be better not to have a line like that. I thought, wouldn’t that be going overboard to wrong Hae Young’s parents like that?”
Even so, Eric said that “there were many scenes where characters really destroyed themselves. They do mean things but these scenes eventually fit as pieces to the larger picture that the writer has painted.” While Eric found it hard to understand Do Kyung’s isolated moments of meanness, he shared that these were necessary for the overall development of the drama.
Responding to some viewer comments that the wall kiss scene smacks of date violence, “I think there’s a cause for misunderstanding if the scene is viewed on its own. In those circumstances, if Hae Young had told Do Kyung “I hate you, don’t kiss me” and hit him, then it would have been date violence. But Hae Young was trying to express “Won’t you just look at me” when she hit Do Kyung. In this context, this scene can’t really be considered date violence.”
