1) You don’t get the feeling that Yuchun is young and that this is only his third drama. I thought that, together with him, we will be the driving power on-site, but in actual fact, I was the most dependent one. When the weather is cold, I will keep yelling that it’s cold, but I have never seen Yuchun do that.
2) Yuchun does not sleep much. Although I think it is probably because he grew up as an idol singer and is used to working through the night, but once his shoot is over, he lies down and immediately falls asleep, snoring away. (laughs)
