While speaking on his YouTube stream in March, Paul Sun-Hyung Lee tried to put fans’ worries to bed by stating, “The scripts felt right, as a fan. I think fans will be very happy with the aesthetic of the show, the tone of the show, and the writing of the show. And I think with the performances, when you have all those things, helping you out there. You can’t help but soar. I’m really looking forward to seeing what we come up with because it felt good doing it. And that’s with not seeing one bit of footage from it! As an actor, you get that gut feeling. Sometimes you know when a show is gonna need a little bit of help, and this wasn’t that. This felt right.”
