Sakai announced that she will be appearing in the 4th and 5th episode of the drama. She wrote, “For this role, I had one of my front teeth pulled. And then I had a silver crown put in and did a photoshoot. I couldn’t leave my house or go anywhere. haha”

Sakai further commented, “Even if it’s just for a guest appearance, if I have to, I’ll have a tooth pulled. That’s my integrity towards my work. […] I worked hard to really bring out the dark under-eye circles and smile lines on my face; to look the ugliest I could in the drama. Please look forward to it.”
