The episode synopsis came from writer Chris Regan's unsuccessful attempts to pitch a Family Guy story to the writers, and then offhandedly mentioning that he himself was in a Korean soap opera.
An unused B-plot involved Stewie worrying that he might become a redhead according to the press release. In addition, neither Stewie, nor Brian appear. Chris and Meg appear, but do not have any speaking lines.
In addition to being a soap opera star, Quagmire reveals that he also polishes rocks as a hobby.
While talking about the Dinner she'll prepare for the guys, Hee-Sun says "We will have many things you will nibble at, but not eat. Then, I will give you a pizza." but later at the dinner table we see they actually do eat the Korean food Hee-Sun prepared, and there's no pizza in sight.
