"When I started shooting, I wanted to find out the secret of their love. But as time went on, I could see many more facets to their lives, and I guess because of this, the film was enjoyed by audience members with various viewpoints: married or not married, male or female, young or old, as a son or daughter, mother or father and so on. And, to all of them, this couple proved that eternal love still exists in this world."Director Jin Mo-young
