Why you should watch W - Two Worlds
Actor Lee Jong Suk and Actress Han Hyo Joo. Just their names speak volumes. I’ll be honest here, I have no intention to watch this show initially until Lee Jong Suk randomly appeared in my dream one night. I mean, I wasn’t even a fan, like only occasionally watching whatever parts of his shows that is on TV. That is when I decided to watch W after I woke up, its like a sign.
But one thing I have to say, when you see Lee Jong Suk casted in a drama, you know for sure the plot will be interesting. I know, even when I don’t watch, i read recaps from my favorite source, Dramabeans. On the other hand, Han Hyo Joo is another name that might interest you.
Honestly, I am a tough ball and its difficult for an actress to be on my watchlist. Yes, i am super selective when it comes to drama, i need the right girl and the right guy. Han Hyo Joo? She’s cool. This coming from her guest appearance in variety shows like Running Man and 1N2D.
It is a fantasy drama with amazing plot. The first drama that comes to your mind for Fantasy genre might be You Who Came from the Star. I think W - Two Worlds might be the game changer. The new epitome of fantasy. The writer is a genius coming out with such amazing plot. Through 14 years of me watching kdramas, this got me hooked and chasing after the plot every Wednesday and Thursday. Sure, I’ve chased many dramas like this, but trust me, none of them has plots as interesting as this.
So many sleepless nights because of this drama with your head spinning trying to figure out what will be going on next, the agony of waiting to know whats going on next and waiting for the subtitles to be out. It is just so intense every episode and like a drug where you are addicted and craving for more.
Well, how interesting is this amazing plot? W is a comic book (webtoon/manhwa) with Kang Chul (Lee Jong Suk) as the lead webtoon character. This gets interesting when the webtoon character takes on life itself and made contact with the real world where Oh Yeon Joo (Han Hyo Joo) comes from. When webtoon and real world comes together, you know its going to be explosive. Oh Yeon Joo, a doctor, got pulled in to the webtoon dimension by Kang Chul at his brink of death and she saved him. How did this happen? One hint/link is that Oh Yeon Joo’s father is the creator of W or is he not? HA! Watch it to find out!
It kind of got me thinking how this may even happen for real? Like the drama may be real? You never know, the world of witchcraft and wizardry might be real but they can’t tell muggles about it. Same goes for this, you can’t tell people about it because they may think you are nuts.
What if W is like Inception? A webtoon depicting a ‘real world’ depicting a webtoon. MindF isn’t it? This is what W is like. Every episode makes you speculate what will be going on next but your speculations will guaranteed to be wrong, because the writer is one smart person and she does the plot twist so well that she puts twister king to shame. True story.
