Through his agency, HB Entertainment, he said, "'Into the New World' was a drama similar to the feeling of excitement and heart throbbing sensation just before leaving for a vacation. I was happy to be apart of such a warm drama. I had fun playing the character of Cha Min Joon who was both adult-like and goofy at the same time. I'm thankful that we were able to complete this kind of a drama without any problems. We were able to make a great project through the help of the producers, writers, the actors, and staff."
'Into the New World' aired its final episode on September 21.
