Even before 'Nevertheless' started, the 'Love Alarm' star Song Kang had teased the viewers of a 'campus romance' like never before in K-dramas. The 27-year-old K-drama star had gushed, "I think you’ll be able to feel an entirely different vibe from the innocently youthful and lovey-dovey romances of the past. Even as I film the drama, I keep thinking to myself that this is so new and different. I think that viewers will also be drawn to this aspect of the drama.”
