  1. @Asiaren, thanks for keeping W alive on this forum ;-)
    And I'm looking forward to the next part of the manwha.

     

    My contribution.
    W two worlds - Season 2 - W four worlds
    It's not really a spoiler, because anyone can guess it from the first episode.
    Excerpt from episode 7:

    Ren-Bo aka Butterfly Girl walks in a park on the Han River.

     

    (I'm not good at photo editing and I have to rework the first episodes. In the meantime, this one is one of the best).

    Sensational!

    I've been waiting for this for years !!!
    The true manhwa of drama.
    I knew it was published in a special edition of the drama, and only for pre-orders.
    I'd just seen a quick review about it on youtube, but never the contents of the manhwa.

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

    Seriously. Like, can we schedule script reading to start January 3, 2021??

     

    Hi frozentundra,

    I tried to contact scriptwriter Song Jae-Jung, but was unsuccessful.
    I don't know what I can do right now.
    I have a completely written script of 68 episodes of about 20 minutes each.
    Every scene, every dialogue.
    http://w4worlds.eklablog.com/

     

    This could be condensed into a drama of 24 one-hour episodes.
    The only defect is that it is not 100% screenplay compliant.
    There are probably some adjustments to be made to some parts to adapt to the Korean mentality.
    But apart from that, it is the perfect scenario for season 2, even more intense than season 1.
    It looks like a drama that SJJ would have written herself.

     

    The first 34 episodes are translated into English.
    I wrote a short 7-page synopsis in English, and a standard 48-page synopsis.

    Everything is ready to present it.

     

    Although I first wrote this for an amateur project, the result is conclusive.
    So I would at least like to propose it, because if it is valid, it would be a huge waste to not propose it.
    With no way to get a contact, I'm stuck here.

  4. W four worlds PITCH

     

    Hello everyone!!!!!
    Although it has been a short time since last time, my work pace is so intense that a week is like two months.
    I re-evaluated the priorities, and realized that the synopsis was more important than the episode summary.

     

    A synopsis is of an impossible difficulty to produce. Even if you remove everything but the main plot, it's too long.
    The problem is that the plot of the drama "W four world" is progressing at a mad pace. I'm not talking about side events, but about the main plot.
    I removed almost everything peripheral from the synopsis. I hope to finish it around 90,000 characters, about a 20x compression of the main script, which would be a tremendous success for me (maybe not for a professional).

    But 34 hours of drama in one document is incredibly difficult. For the moment, I am moving towards a synopsis which is the equivalent of 3 or 4 episodes of the drama, in terms of volume of text. Currently, I am writing events that correspond to episode 56, which is not far from the end of the drama. So I worked like a dead donkey for 4 days, without doing anything else, and almost without sleeping.

     

    This synopsis is very important. I assume that professionals rarely have the time to read an entire script. It is best to present them with a synopsis, which summarizes the plot.
    I still don't know how to contact Song Jae-Jung, and I reiterate my request for help.

     

    There is another document that is important, the pitch. This is also difficult to produce. I wrote and rewrote the pitch over 100 times!
    I think I have found the final version, which I am delivering here, in SPOILER.

     

    Be ready....

     

    Spoiler

    Two years after W, two new manhwas become alive.
    Kang Chul and his relatives are facing new phenomena, pushing Manhwa logic to the extreme.
    A danger of unprecedented magnitude threatens the manhwas and the real world.

  5. Hello, everyone!
    Since last time, I have continued to work on W four worlds (aka W two worlds season 2).

    I have established a list of priorities.


    To begin with, I finished episode 4 as a photo-drama.

    http://w4worlds.fr/html/W_Saison2_Script04_US.html
    Episode 4 is certainly the best of the 4 episodes already published, and then I have the impression that each new episode is better than the previous one, until the final episode, which is the best of all!
    The time and energy spent on this photo-drama is not wasted, as it is a very good demonstration.

     

    For now, my priority is the script itself, and the means to present it:
    Pitch, simplified synopsis, episodes synopsis, character sheets, important facts sheets.
    Anything that will make this drama easily understandable to a production line capable of filming it!

     

    I'm currently writing the synopsis per episode, and I'm on episode 20.
    This synopsis includes about 25 lines per episode (3000 characters). And summarizes an episode in compression x10 minimum.

  6. Hello,
    Today, Wednesday, August 13, 2019, something fabulous has just happened.
    I finished writing W season 2, W four worlds!
    W four worlds is a drama of 68 half-hour episodes.

    It's not a fan fiction, it's written like a real script!


    I'm still on the shock of writing the last episode today, which is sensational. A last episode that makes me cry myself, even though I wrote it.
    It took me a year and a half to write the whole drama.


    I am sure today that the story is equal to the original drama.
    Moreover, it is above all, and most importantly, at the height of a real season 2, which must be even more powerful than season 1.
    W's universe is fully deployed in season 2, which includes a lot of new features. It is at the point where this season 2 completes the universe of W, and constitutes its true full universe.


    If you liked the drama W, you can consider that season 2 will hold you even more! Especially since it is written in the same style as season 1, even if I didn't try to copy the style of Song Jae-Jung.


    Of course, there is still work to be done:
    - corrections here and there.
    - alterations (already identified in my logbook).


    Then, the first priority will be to develop a simplified photo-drama.
    This means, only one image per character, but allowing to have the entire drama readable in this format. The drama will then be readable by beta-readers. Preferably speaking French, as full translation is not yet a priority.
    There are about 200 different characters with at least one line of dialogue, from extras appearing in only one scene to main roles. So I have to create 200 images for the simplified photo-drama. It sounds like a lot, but it's really not much. The work done on the first 3 episodes in full drama-photo version is much more substantial.


    Now, there is something else that will become an increasing priority....
    How can I make sure that this drama reaches the right people, and why not, have a chance to be filmed?
    Passing it on to a Korean producer is not the best solution at the moment, because the drama is not written in Korean, and it does not meet the writing standards of a Korean script. Even if it is written very close to a scenario, there are some clumsiness (including an inaccurate breakdown of the sequences).


    My idea is to be able to pass it on to the scriptwriter Song Jae-Jung.
    She would be able, if the project interests her, to make it even better.
    And even without aiming as far as the actual shooting of the drama script, I think that sending her this story would be a gift she deserves, for the gift she gave us when she wrote W.
    I have no idea how I could contact her, and I don't speak Korean.
    If anyone who comes to this forum could help with this, it would be welcome.

     

    If you are interested in the content of the drama and want to read the first 3 episodes as a full drama-photo (the best possible quality), you can consult this blog :
    http://w4worlds.eklablog.com/
    You can also leave your comments for each episode, without fear of spoiling the others.

     

    Here, the main picture of the drama :

  7. Hi Asiaren,

    I'm working on Season 2 of the drama.

     

    Actualy, my main goal is to finish it, and send it to Song Jae-Jong writer (if I succed to find how, and where she is).

    It's quite a serious project. Writed mostly like a TV script (however, this is not totaly a TV script if you look at real format of korean TV scripts. Well, it's quite subtil, but if you read original W tv script, you will understand what I mean.) So it's half story, half Tv script. But pace is as quick as a Tv script. Meaning it's 3x more quick than a book about descriptions and events.

    You (and "Memories of the Alhambra") convinced me to start all over again and watch this series. I believed I dropped this show sometime after the elevator scene, when he winked at her. When I came back from my long trip, I  already lost all interest in the show. 

     

    Here's my "First Impressions" post:

    Somehow, it's fitting that I pick this up when I'm away on a trip again. It's okay if you tell me spoilers. I'll continue with Ep 2 when I get home. 

     

    Hi Packmule3, nice to see you again!


    I'll comment on your blog instead of here.
    I hope you can have sufficient image quality if you are travelling. And above all a good sound quality, because W's background music are exceptional.
    The same team composed these, as well as "Signal", "Save-Me" and "Memorys of alhambra".

     

    I'm currently in writing pose after finishing episode 61, a very long 20 episodes rush written in less than three months!
    I need a little rest before I finish. The desire and inspiration must be there!
    So I watch dramas to recharge my batteries, and I'm on the back foot of Empress Ki, a drama that's in my Top 5 now.

     

    I will avoid giving spoilers, useless to hope, Professor Park (mule3) :P

    As I understood , you're using photos in a new storyline. 

    I didn't watch W (MBC's drama )yet so I'm a bit confused . Hard to search for pics as time as you don't know the story :confused: I need some time to better understand what is all about 

    A lot of JG's photos can be found on Instagram and Pinterest (presented for every drama, movie, event- if you want I can send you the link.I'm not sure it's allowed to post here links to other sites) 

     

    I mainly use dramas screenshots (cut 3 frames per second) for dialogues, and any image for large images.
    But the phase where I would need help is not started, I finish the script before, by March. I will then publish episode 3 and correct everything and build a solid case. My goal is to propose the script to the production company. Then, since it will probably fail, I will focus on photo-drama for all the episodes.
    Having photo sources doesn't help me, the only way to do that is to have one or more people who have access to the episodes in advance, and who find the large photos corresponding to the scenes directly, so all you have to do is incorporate them. What takes the most time is the research and correspondence work. There is also the photo-montage work, because it is often necessary.  For example, in episode 1, there is a photo montage with the character on a television screen, or the cover of the manhwa, on a television background.

    I suppose that ''Someone'' is me :smile: :joy:but I didn't say ''he was a flower boy'' but

    ''It's said that he is the original flower boy but, in my opinion,  this isn't very important. What's really important is that he was a very good Actor since the beginning of his career''

    I read many articles about him (koreans, japanese, chinese, english...Thank you Google Translate !:)) and often he was called ''flower boy'', ''pretty boy'', '' the man more beautiful than women'' but no one has ever questioned his talent. All authors had only words to praise him for his acting skills.

    Yes...as I know he has good skills in 5 martial arts and 3 black belts in 3 of them

    If I can help you with some info or photos, just tell me :heart: I'm also a fan of him

     

     

    About the "original flower boy", I read that on another site too, yes.
    This man is impressive in every way. I wonder how he had time to achieve so many different things in life, and doing it so goodly! Maybe he's gifted.
    He is now one of the male actors I like to follow, with Lee Jong-Suk, Jo-Won and Hyun Bin. I'm lucky because I still have a lot of dramas to deal with him.
    Thank you for this offer of help, but the nature of my project makes it difficult. In a few weeks, I would certainly be happy to have help with the photo montages, but I'm afraid it's impossible because it takes too much. It would take one or more people hooked on W maybe.
     You can get a preview of the photo-drama in the "fanfix" section on the subject "W two worlds season 2". In the first episode, there are many scenes with Lee Joon-Gi, in a story where he is finally one of the actors, at least in this version. Actor of a new drama of sorts. We notice on the dialogue images that it is not difficult to find moments when his acting skills stand out easily. We don't see him again in the next episode, but we suspect that he will come back in the story at some point, since there are just over 60 episodes, and that he is on the bill among the leading characters.

    Thank you for these translations.
    It reminds me of one thing....
    In the drama, the cutest and sexiest actress is Han Bo-reum as Ko Yoo-ra.
    But the one I find most desirable is Lee Shi Won as Lee Soo Jin. She has a kind of animal charm.
    Sorry about Park Shin-Hye, she's one of my favorite actresses, but she never triggered any desire in me, unlike these other two actresses.
    As we can see, these two secondary characters are not useless, hey hey hey!

  14. Someone said he was "the original flower boy".
    That's not the impression I have of him, I read somewhere on his CV that he was a high-ranking martial artist in several martial arts (including Taekkyeon, a traditional Korean martial art). I lost the source of that information, I'm sorry!
    In 2009, he received a prize on this subject from the Korean Martial Arts Federation, "Martial Arts Actor Award", for Time Between Dog and Wolf and Iljimae.
    I think he's pretty perfect as an action hero. The battle scenes are impressive with him. In "Joseon Gunman" for example.

     

    I use the photos of this actor for the photo-drama version of my script "W season 2", because of the similarity of Wang Shin's character with the one he plays in "Joseon Gunman".
    Although the "Joseon Gunman" drama is not exceptional, its role is exceptional because of its originality as a sniper with a rifle during the Joseon era. A kind of western masked vigilante in historic Korea.

    I needed the perfect representation of the action hero and that he be a sniper, to make him the hero of a manhwa, in much the same way that Kang Chul is a sniper action hero in "W two worlds". In addition, the character had to be very strong in martial arts.


    In short, I see this actor above all as the ideal action hero. Funny and charming on top of that, and capable of determination, sadness or anger. A really very complete actor.

  15. It is very hard to see this forum now dead and deserted, except for the pictures of the lduc whom I thank.
    I saw the first 13 episodes of the drama again with a good translation, and it was much better than the first time. Especially emotionally charged scenes, or certain secondary roles.


    Meanwhile, I have progressed in writing W season 2, having completed episode 59, and therefore writing the last episodes, 60 to 66. I slowed down a little bit because I wrote a lot over a period of two months, and I ended up saturating. I prefer to save an authentic energy for the end.


    I realize even more how effective Song Jae-Jung's writing is.
    Often, she brings a plot-twist, then explains it afterwards, in the form of a flashback. This sometimes irritated some spectators. But if the scenes are written in chronological order, it loses all its flavour. The plot-twist disappears, since all the previous scenes will bring it gently. Finally, when the key scene appears, the viewer knows too much, and has been able to guess too much and anticipate what would happen. I am worried that I have written plot-twists that have become too apparent since then, having respected the chronology. Maybe if I reread the script and pay attention to it, I will detect plot-twists whose effect is not optimal.  Although concretely, I have also developed the habit of writing in her own way. Surprise first, then explanation. I love it when a scene is powerful and unexpected. I like to push the spectator out of his comfort zone. So I have to use what I learn, especially the principle of "pushing the limits".
    I cut the pear in half and published the second episode as well.

    I'm not sure if it's ok to discuss it here in MoA thread...we're getting offtopic now. maybe we can DM or move to W thread. 


    I don't know, maybe it's just a matter of first impression or prejudice. It doesn't matter to me whether she looks pretty or not, when I'm moved by the actor once, I'm all set. I have only seen HHJ in Masquerade and none of her drama pieces, which btw i heard we're all very good.  I like Kang Sora in Dr. Stranger. She has this elegant & mature vibe. I like Shinhye since Stairway. She was typecasted, have lots to improve but she's growing. My fav JS role is Dr. Stranger followed by Pinocchio then School 2013. the rest i haven't seen so far.

     

    Though i'm an actor driven viewer, I do experiment also based on plot and genres and writer-director are also my further consideration. Thus, i was able to watch Signal, Punch and Reply 1988.  

     

    Dramas like My Name is Kim Samsoon, Secret Garden and Punch,  i dropped them twice, thrice, early on, but unexpectedly, when i pick it up again, i can't stop anymore. This applies also to actors/ artist. Change of heart takes place after encountering them sometime :)

     

    Becoz of Shinhye, I'm glad i met SJJ & AGH PD thru MoA.

    I find SJJ a fascinating and intriguing writer. 

     

    I just went to see your profile, and I saw that you were a woman.
    So it doesn't surprise me that you cling to dramas about male actors, as I do about female actors.
    I continue the conversation in spoiler, so as not to be too off-topic.
     

    Spoiler

    Concerning LJS, I didn't like "Dr Stranger" very much, because it was very overplayed at times (especially at the beginning). And I would have liked the romance with Kang Sora to have taken precedence over the one planned with that horrible actress who had already partially ruined the excellent drama "Bridal Mask".


    After "W", "Pinochio" was the best drama I saw with LJS, closely followed by "I hear Your Voice". In fact, I had spotted this actor before, in "Secret Garden", in which he plays a secondary role. I liked this actor because he has great transparency. He is not hermetic, inevitable emotions spring from his face, he may seem fragile and strong at the same time. However, I don't find his acting very diversified or exceptional, it's just that he's naturally great. It's really very easy to identify with him, for someone quite emotional like me, who can't hide his emotions either.
    I had a great pleasure to see him after "W" in "while you are sleeping", a very good drama that I obviously advise you, full of optimism, despite the fatalistic side of the pitch.


    Another male actor greatly impressed me for a short time: Lee djong wok.
    I was a fan of the actress Lee Da-Hae, after seeing her in "Miss Ripley", where she plays a heartbreaking and ambiguous role, full of psychological truth. I had the impression I was seeing Isabelle Adjani in Korean. (my favorite French actress, who often plays crazy or psychologically very disturbed female roles)
    I've seen almost all of Lee Da-Hae's dramas. Lee djong wok plays in the very classic "my girl".
    But he also plays with her in "Hotel King". And in this drama, Lee djong wok is totally phenomenal. At that moment, I thought he would become one of my favorite male actors, but unfortunately, this was not confirmed later.

     

    EDIT: if you look at W soon, put your comments in the dedicated topic, I will come with pleasure to comment, and follow some episodes, even if I already know them by heart.

    I like PWS in Miracle in Cell#7, KES in The King. I'm not a fan of HHJ but i acknowledged she's a class of her own. 

    As i mentioned earlier, my motivation watching a drama or film are the actors. My love for Sukkie is not enough that period.

    Now I have LJS, PWS, KES & SJJ as incentive. I think I can hustle. :D Maybe, I'll be able to warm up to HHJ this time.

     

     

     

    Yes, I understand.
    It's quite strange because what I like most of all is a good story, the "plot".
    But in Korean dramas, there is only one SJJ, capable of making a crazy plot.
    So I also work with actors, well, especially actresses in fact. Normal, I am a man, so I am sensitive to the feminine charm. And Korean actresses are really good, maybe more so than men.


    I have an anecdote about that.

    Spoiler

    The first time I saw W, I was already hooked on LJS. But when I saw Han Hyo-Joo, I first thought... Damn, she may be a good actress, but I really don't like her looks. I think she's too skinny and ugly.

    How am I supposed to get involved in romance with an actress like that?!

    Please give me Park Shin Hye, Kang Sora (the rival who steals the star from the lead actress in dr stranger), or anyone else. I had to take it upon myself, and appreciate the moments when I still found her pretty.

    Then when I saw the drama again, I stopped thinking that way. I became so impressed with her acting that it didn't matter anymore. So I saw a lot of other dramas that she had shot after that. And she was quitepretty in Shinning Inheritance, but no luck for her, her rival was Moon Chae Won. Which is of a totally amazing beauty in this drama.


    Another anecdote, as I have to take screen shots for the photo-drama, I have dramas cut at a rate of 3 frames/second. This allows me to see the differences in expression between the actors. Han Hyo-Joo is a real festival of nuances and inventiveness, at ease in all types of scenes, while most other actresses, even the ones I love, are much more bland in comparison, and often play the same attitudes.

     

     

    @moodypie : yes, I think @packmule3 writes very well. I have to hurry to finish my 2nd screening of MOA to be able to read all his articles.
    More than that, I have to hire you, packmule3!
    With your analytical skills, you could find ideas and meanings hidden in my story that I don't even know about. I don't know if I can improve or not scenes that have already been written, but until an external opinion has been given, it's impossible to know.

    In a way, you're lucky you didn't see it.
    Having the pleasure of seeing it all for the first time is second to none.
    But it moves so much that it is impossible to fully appreciate it at this moment.
    The pace is much faster than MOA.

     

    Spoiler

    Of course, there is Lee Jong-Suk, but the other actors are incredible.
    Han Hyo-Joo is impressive in the diversity of her acting, and in her emotions. I've never seen her so good in her other dramas, and yet she was already very good, in Dong-Yi or Shinning Inheritance.
    There is Kim Eui-sung (Professor Cha) who is also incredible.
    Also, I love Lee Si-eon in the role of Soo-Bong.
    And finally, in the role of the prosecutor, Park Won-sang is very good.
    As a general rule, even for the other actors, they are all in tune, none of them overplay.

     

    I have an idea for a group name, which would revolve around the word "memories".
    For example: Endless Memories.
    or even: Unforgettable memories.
    Or anything else of the same kind.
    Quite simply because this drama is one of those that will be remembered forever.

     

    EDIT : Yu-Ra is so cute. :wub:

    @packmule3 Hahaha we would love to have Ladies bathroom scene for female players to find their level 1 swords, it will be a chaos don't you think? - I'm amaze with our writer's preference, she uses bathroom or train toilet often for zinu's sanctuary, which is funny.

     

    It's a hasty judgment.
    In an interview, SJJ revealed that for female players, objects also appear in the women's toilet.
    A hairbrush durability 50.

    :rolleyes:

    only ep2 of W. must give some love to my darling Lee Jongsukkie too 

     

    There's a hell of a riddle in your story... How did you manage to see only the first two episodes without stopping you from seeing the whole drama?!!!
    It is worth repeating the drama from the beginning by reviewing the first two episodes, if you saw them a long time ago.
    They are very well polished. Especially episode two. I will have trouble defining what my favorite episodes are in this drama. He's fabulous from all over. Even the episode supposed to be a little softer contains some fabulous scenes.
    I particularly liked episodes 2, 8 and 9.
    The only thing I don't like is happening from episode 9 to 10. There is a scene that we see in flashback 3 times, and it's one too many times, even if it's fast enough. It's the only notable flaw I find in the whole drama.
    As I did the subtitles in French, I also put a marker for the beginning of the real episode, because they often contain at the beginning the end of the scene of the previous episode. It's quite painful when you see the drama many times over.

     

    I watched the first two episodes of MOA again yesterday. It's such a pleasure with a good translation. I can finally enjoy the drama at 100%!
    Some scenes are better when you see them again. For example, the scene where JW sees his former wife again on the way to the train station. This encounter has a certain nervous tension and you can feel the emotion of this kind of encounter. When you don't know the story, you have trouble gauging it.
    At the end of episode 2, the flashforward is announced by JW's voiceover, which extends to the beginning of the scene. That makes me think I should use this trick.

     

    Voice-overs are a process that is often criticized as easy or inappropriate. However, there are a lot of works that use this. Comics, for example. Frank Miller's use a lot of them. (Sin city).
    SJJ uses them in small strokes.
    - Gradually, my message began to drift like a shipwrecked raft.
    In W, at the end of episode 3, or when Yoon-Jo does the dishes in episode 6, giving one of the most beautiful scenes in emotion.
    - If someone read that, they would probably have trouble understanding why I was telling them other things at the same time as they was reading. But I thought it was a rather strange and interesting form of experience. Even though I was going to look crazy one more time.
    In MOA, there are more voice-overs. I find this exceptional to restore a form of emotion, and to enter more into the subjectivity and spirit of a character. In a drama, unlike a book, no one is there to tell what's going on in the characters' heads. So the voice-over is good for that.
    - I often wondered if this effect was disturbing for the main scene when you read it. Of course, on a screen it would pass more easily, during a silent scene. But with a description, the texts overlapped.
    I find that the voice-overs that speak from the future are particularly strong in emotion. It's a form of flashforward. As the scene takes place in the present, but the voice-over comes from the future, it adds a dimension of fatality to the story. Or something tragic, melancholic.
    - Oh, here you go! There was the moment when I was talking to them about voiceovers from the future. At that moment, there was still a semblance of life on this forum. But we all felt it was dusk. Many of us had difficulty saying goodbye to both drama and forum.
    I quickly got used to using them in a natural way. I realize that I use very little overall, but that they come at the right time. On a stage, the voice-over really has something to make you cry about.
    However, I misused their context at first. We need images to show, but I forgot that. Now I have the reflex to take this into account better. But I don't always know what to do: print the voice-over on a scene in progress, and place the voice-over on a series of flashbacks.
    - Flashbacks and slideshows of images with a song played was much better on the screen. I was quite sad that I couldn't reproduce this form of emotion in a script. I think that the voice-over from the future was one of the few ways I had found, by quickly wiping a sentence at the beginning of the scene, such as "montage: various flashbacks".
    On a scene in progress, it's not easy, I have to insert the description of the scene, with voice-over sentences, in small packets. To give an example of what it looks like, I did it on this message. You finally have the explanation....

    count on it. i will bet again and again just to experience the thrill and feels of MoA :) How could the romance overtakes the game, i don't know only SJJ can :w00t: Faith really overpowers technology. I love it's perfect blend of mystery/ action/ suspense and melodrama romance. :wub:

     

    Ramyun FTW! let me take a look at that and check out if our grocery have the same :lol: 

     

    Okay, but in that case, you should see W as a whole! It's even more richard simmons up!
    I almost forgot you didn't finish it. What episode did you get into?

     

    Honestly, ramyuns are not terrible.
    On the other hand.... Kimchi.... AHHHHHH KIMCHI.
    it was so amazing the kimchi!!!!!!!!
    I understand why they eat it at every meal!
    I guess with habit, their buttocks don't hurt anymore the next morning...........

     

    EDIT :

    The clifhanger from the first episode is so funny!
    I notice that the scene has some details that make it emblematic.
    Rather than a simple confrontation in the kitchen, the heroine stands on a table with a broom.
    This adds a lot of charm to the situation.
    Also, in a way, she has HJ has a lot more height than JW. Moreover, she has to bend down to his level when she cries, always on the table.
