The actor once revealed his friendship with Kim Hye-soo by saying, “When she was in high school, we worked together. Kim is a baby to me.”

He revealed, “At the time of filming, Kim Hye-soo was a third-year high school student. My heart ached back then. Even though Kim Hye-soo was a healthy child, her mother restricted her food intake due to her daughter’s job.” Jeong Bo-seok reminisced, “So I secretly went to eat with Kim Hye-soo.” He laughed, saying, “So I held a lot of resentment towards Kim Hye-soo’s mother.”
