During the press conference, Yoo Ahn In explained his character as, "a normal youth in this age, but it's impossible to tell what he's thinking inside." Steven Yeun said about his character, "Rather than saying it would be difficult to explain the character, I think if I explained it, the movie won't be as entertaining."
The two actors were then asked about their chemistry on set, to which Yoo Ah In let Steven Yeun take the floor. Steven Yeun began with, "Awesome!", then continued, "It was very fun acting together... At first, we started getting to know each other like our characters, but after 4 months of working together (Turns to Yoo Ah In shyly), we've... become friends, right?"
Yoo Ah In, who also agreed that working with Steven Yeun was fun and a new experience, also joked, "He's actually a hyung, but I don't call him hyung. In the U.S, you can just call anyone by name right? So we got along more comfortably, like friends."
