Director Park put emphasis on Ik-ho and wanted his MMA fighter to stand out from normal action and show heroism in his moves. For this, Lee Jung-jae had to train for 5 months, learning how to fall, roll and all the other basics first. Then he mastered boxing, wrestling and other various kicking moves.
In the mornings, Lee Jung-jae would work on his muscles and practiced martial arts in the afternoons. Director Park said about the actor, "Lee Jung-jae smelled like plasters and that's how hard he worked. He has much potential as an action star".
BoA, in the role of Soo-kyeong, a mysterious red angel, joined the martial arts team and worked on her strength, boxing, attacking, falling and rolling every 2~3 times a week. She even had personal boxing lessons with a trainer.
