About his role, Lee Soo Hyuk stated, "I am honored to partake in the remake of such a famous production. I am trying my best and hope that I can show the audience great acting."
YG Entertainment also reported, "This is the actor's first time in a Japanese drama. He was very serious when he met with the production staff to discuss his character and also gave feedback to the writers of the drama. Because this is his first time filming for a Japanese drama, he is still a bit shy, but is trying his best to get along with the other actors."
'I'm Sorry, I Love You' is an original Korean drama which starred actors So Ji Sub and Im Soo Jung. The Japanese remake will feature Nagase Tomoya, who will take on the role of the mafia boss.
