Returning to the small screen after three years, Jong Suk felt fulfilled to see his efforts being recognized through viewers’ enthusiastic responses. “I am very grateful for everyone’s support as I gained strength to work even harder.”
Meanwhile, Yoona feels bittersweet about the finale as she learned a lot about herself during filming.
