Reports say the drama crews really wanted Lee Kwang Soo to play Cho Seok because his experience from variety show Running Man and sitcom High Kick Through The Roof will be valuable to this sitcom-style drama.

The 10 initial episodes will be 10 minutes long each. They will first appear online and air on KBS. The drama is produced by Cross Pictures of the tvN series Cheese in the Trap and written by SNL Korea's staff writer Lee Byung Hoon.
