“I saw Nara in her 20s, in her 30s and I’m seeing her now. I feel like we ripened together. We matured together. She got even better. We felt so at ease with each other,” says Jang Hyuk.

Jang Nara describes how they rely on each other on set. “Whenever we are on a show together, it’s not like we talk a lot on the set but even if we don’t talk, we know what each other is going to do. And when I miss something, he helps me out. So I feel like we were siblings in our past life.”
