The comedy stars young actors Park Ha Young and Koo Seung Hyun, with Kim Jeong Tae as their father. HanCinema reports that filming began as early as 2013.

During the press conference Tiger JK stated, "[The child actors] acted as my mentors and taught me a lot about acting throughout the filming. I was surprised that they memorized all the lines in the movie."
