Production[edit]

The first script reading took place on October 26, 2018 at SBS Ilsan Production Center in Tanhyun, South Korea.[4]

The Fiery Priest was first scheduled to air as a Monday-Tuesday drama following My Strange Hero, but due to SBS deciding to cancel the weekend special drama time slot (Saturday nights at 21:05 KST) after Fates & Furies, it became the network's first Friday-Saturday night drama. Haechi was then chosen to follow My Strange Hero.[5]

This series marks Myoungwoo Lee's last project for SBS, after 12 years of partnership. In October 2019, he moved to Taewon Entertainment.[6]
