Most of his lines will be in Korean, and his scenes will be shot in Korea as well.
  • The motto of the featuring hotel, Tokyo Ocean Hotel, is "L'espoir fait vivre". Translated, it means "Hope makes life".
  • In episode 7, popular Korean group SS501 makes a guest appearance on the show, playing themselves as guests at the starring hotel.
