Before ‘A Day’, Kim Myung Min and Byun Yo Han have played in a drama, in which they performed a good chemistry.
This time, both of the actors’ acting and chemistry has clearly increased. In this movie, Kim Myung Min lost the child that he loved. Collaborating with his co-star in the past clearly brought a good effect as it was so much easier for them to build the chemistry and synergy.
