Lee Jong Hyuk talked about his having accepted the casting offer from Gentleman’s Dignity. “When I first received the synopsis of the series, there was no detailed description of my character. It only said the character is one of the four guys, and he runs a café, so I thought that character must takes such small part, appearing in the story only when the other three main characters hit the café and only listening to their various concerns. That’s what I assumed, so I hesitated a lot before I finally chose to do that.”
