The production company revealed, "This is our second time working together after 'Heirs.' This is because he is an actor we can trust. You can expect to see more mature and deeper acting from Lee Minho in the drama."

The filming will start sometime in the second half of this year and the drama is scheduled to premiere in the first half of 2020. Baek Sanghoon, who also worked for 'Descendants of the Sun,' will direct the series. 

It's said that the fantasy drama will bring the story of parallel worlds. In one world, the emperor of the Korean empire seeks to keep the doors closed, while in the other, a detective of the Republic of Korea seeks to protect his life and the people he loves.
