Jenny Han, the writer of the books, mentioned in an interview that loads of studios were interested in adapting the book into a feature film, with only one condition: change the race heritage of Lara Jean to Caucasian. Han, determined to keep Lara Jean's heritage as half Korean, half American, said only one studio agreed with her choice and cast an Asian actress as Lara Jean. Lana Condor, who is an adoptee in real life, was the result. However, Jenny Han did not insist any of the boys be cast as Asian.

I still love you and that's a really huge problem for me and it's also a really huge surprise. I swear I didn't know. All this time, I thought I was over it. How could I not be, when it's Margot you love? It's always been Margot."
