Speaking about his time on the show, Corey told Harper's Bazaar: "We got to play brilliant characters, and in terms of the scope of the character, we got to explore everything on the human spectrum. It's a privilege, but I'd have to say the best thing about working on a series like this are the people. From the crew to the cast, there was so much passion, love, and friendship among everyone." 

In a roundtable interview with Esquire Philippines, Corey also opened up about the character of King George, whom he has a "deep love" for. 

"He was so much more than a madman and tried his whole life to do right by himself, by his family, by his people," Corey explained. "He really wanted to do the best for everyone involved, and he wasn't the most intelligent person but he was really dedicated to trying. I have such a deep love for him."
