After Hyun Woo (Moon Chae Won) tells Jun Su (Lee Seung Gi) that a guy she′s known for 18 years is not a man to her and doesn′t make her heart pound, Jun Su replies, "Your heart, I′ll make it flutter," as he dives in for a kiss. This is the first time Jun Su, who has only given comfort like a mother or an older brother, showed himself as a man and not a friend. Starting with awkwardness and ending wiith a deep kiss, the scene will confirm all the delicate details of Jun Su and Hyun Woo′s 18 years of friendship.

"Because we had to film the kiss scene after shooting just four times since the movie fimling began, we looked up our previous projects′ kiss scenes because it was awkward. But once we went into filming, the awkward atmosphere actually helped. Since it′s a situation where they′ll be kissing for the first time in 18 years, the awkward and strange nervousness that Jun Su and Hyun Woo felt naturally came out, creating this kiss scene," said Lee Seung Gi on the kiss scene, which will be the movie′s highlight.
