Quote:
"The fact that it [The Art of Woo] was a romantic comedy was definitely interesting, because it was so different and out of my usual sphere of reference. And yes, the lightness was very appealing. I remember I had to rush out and watch all these classic romantic comedies to study the genre and understand the structure of these stories better, to see how we could add our own twists of gender and ethnicity into the mix."
-- Helen Lee
