Just started watching this today and I’m hooked. I’ve always liked sci-fi and this one is a bit different from the others I’ve watched. Also the first time I’ve seen Han Hyo Joo and she’s a beauty.

My opinion about Han Hyo Joo:
I really don't think she' s pretty! She' s not pretty. She was a little more beautiful when she was younger. But she's really too skinny.
In "W", there are a lot of times when she's still pretty enough. Nice face.
What matters most to me about Hyo Joo: She's a great actress. Really, one of Korea's best actresses. She can play anything with talent. She's amazing. She's comfortable in any kind of situation. She's one of the best actresses I know, even though I don't like her looks, like Kang Chul in the drama ;-)

@Bojun I felt that Oh Seung Moo's plot arc was sad but satisfying. And Kang Chul overcame his issues and came out stronger at the end. But I felt like Oh Yeon Joo's plot arc was unfinished. Yes, she drew in the CCTV recordings to catch Han Cheol Ho, but somehow of all of them, she suffered at the end without having the chance to DO enough. I don't know what I would have had her do, but I felt like her plotline was somewhat incomplete at the end. To me it doesn't need a sequel because the core questions of the story were answered, and trying to drag it out for a whole other season would either mean negating what they worked so hard to win, or coming up with another plotline that somehow pales against the existential questions this drama asked. But I do think that they could have given us a little more at the end. At least let us see a little into the future, into happier times. I confess that after the drama ended, I kept hoping for a cameo of them somewhere, just so we could see that they made it and were doing well in the real world. (The best we got was a W clip in I Am Not a Robot.) I guess all we can do is finish off the epilogue in our own heads. 

Yeah!
When I wrote season 2, I immediately thought of this:
Don't try to extend season 1. Propose something revolutionary, with new philosophical and existential questions. And fully develop the concept of "W"! I hate fan-fictions that capitalize on the original romance, or that unnecessarily lengthen what has already been said.

Finally finished watching after binge watching the last four episodes. I now understand why the ratings went down in the last few episodes. There was just too many twists and mood swings in the story towards the end. Don't get me wrong the ending was indeed fitting and a happy one with a bit of bitter-sweetness for Oh Yeon Joo. My maxim is less drama and more happy/sweet moments towards the end. 

Sad ending are the best. ;-)

@Bojun The two dramas have the same director, so he was able to make this kind of reference. There is this one scene early on where the germophobe guy (who thinks he can't have a real life relationship because of germs) is watching TV and comes across the prison kissing scene from W. He is quite envious and sad, lol. 

 

(Actually, the same director did She Was Pretty, and both the blind date guy the professor tries to set Oh Yeon Joo up with, as well as the insane woman who wanted Soo Bong to draw "eyes as big as cookies" for her characters, are cameos from that drama. Hence my wistful hopes at the time to see just a glimpse into KC and OYJ's future as a cameo somewhere. Alas...that is not to be.)

Film director Jung Dae Yoon is certainly a movie buff. He always puts references in his dramas. In King2heart, there's a scene that doesn't look like a drama scene at all, but rather a scene from Stanley Kubrick. During episode 2: the death of the owner of club M.

There were a LOT of movie references in the beginning of Robot, and I was amazed that I recognized so many, as I myself am not a movie buff (but I do love soundtracks, and that was part of it. I mean...he's got the Cinema Paradiso soundtrack wedged in there, even!)

 

Han Hyo Joo is my favorite actress, period. Personally I find her to be very beautiful, but even if she were not, her acting ability is amazing. I've seen nearly everything of hers that is still available (and some things that aren't anymore) and she is a completely different person in each work. She can be glamorous, gritty, sweet, funny, sad, and down to earth. When you see her wearing her own face, so to speak, she is quite bright and funny when comfortable with people. With large unfamiliar groups, she can a bit shy, the kind of person who doesn't like to be stared at but who does a lot of kind things privately that she doesn't really want people to know about. With very small changes, she can create an entirely different visual, which is probably why she says that she can go out in public and people don't recognize her. I've seen her take characters I really would not care for in real life and make them accessible and make me really feel for them. And of course she's played some of my favorite characters as well. One reason why W was such a joy to watch was that both she and Lee Jong Suk have the ability to suck you into a character and make you feel and care so very much. Despite the fantastical premise, it rang emotionally true to me.

@frozentundra Yes the recording is basically useless because Han Cheol Ho committed suicide. I agree a sequel would be too much. On a side note I watched I Am Not a Robot before W Two Worlds. I'm not based in Korea and have only started watching kdramas late last year so I jump years, both backward and forward, when looking for dramas I like. By the way what was the W clip in I Am Not  a Robot about?

 

Hi @Bojun!

I hope, after reading our essay you will get more answers about this drama -->>

 

W TEAM: PROLOGUE

 tumblr_oa7rtxSK8t1vy1ojno1_500.gif

 

t its heart, W - Two Worlds delves at the difference between fiction and reality. Why, as real people living in the real world, do we spend so much time immersed in their fictional stories? Because even though fiction is imaginary, there is something real in it that affects us. That teaches us, or gives us courage, or somehow changes us. Our favorite moments in W center on that interchange between fiction and reality. 

We still think this drama is one of the most beautiful, mind blowing, clever and is way ahead of its time. We will have to wait years for something like this again...

@frozentundra.
About Han Hyo Joo: some spectators criticized her performance in W. I feel like sometimes people have richard simmons in their eyes! They can't recognize good actors and bad actors... Her performance was out of the ordinary. Exactly, with a lot of different genres. In some scenes, she's about to cry but doesn't do it. She just has her eyes popping out (episode 16, at the beginning). It's incredible to be able to show something like that.


I've watched all the dramas of this actress, and this is where she's the best. Certainly her film experience has had an impact. I've only watched one of her movies called "cold eyes". As you say, she's an actress who can adapt to any role.


However, that doesn't take away from the talent of other actors who are not adaptable, but who perfectly embody a certain type of role. In France, there are famous actors such as "Gérard Depardieu", "Jean Paul Belmondo".
In Korea, the actress Kim Tae Hee is sensational... as long as she plays a role that suits her well. Jang Ok Jung, she was stellar ! My princess", on the other hand, was catastrophic.

Honestly, I don't think I'd see anything as good as W in my life. Some of the dramas were fabulous, like Empress Ki, or Liar Game (Japanese version), but nothing that surpasses W.
So that's why I wrote season 2. To make a story that lives up to it! Whether it's successful or not, that was my goal. I wanted that W magic to last.

 

I'm posting an "end picture" here. In a drama, at the end of the episode, there is always a bright flash, and a photo montage with one to four characters involved in a cliffhanger :

5 K-Dramas That Will Take You to Beautiful Places And Ignite Your Wanderlust

5 K-Dramas That Will Take You to Beautiful Places And Ignite Your Wanderlust
(Photo : Twitter, Instagram) 5 K-Dramas That Will Take You to Beautiful Places And Ignite Your Wanderlust
 

In the world of uncertainty, you don't need to be worried if it will take time to travel once again. Imagine and create memories while watching K-dramas with their breathtaking sceneries.

Korean dramas can be romantic and suspenseful, and at the same time, can bring you to places you have never been to. As more countries are planning again to open their borders, and as people think of places to go, K-dramas can help you check out beautiful places you'll wish to pop into.

1. Crash Landing On You - paragliding Switzerland 

Reminisce as Son Ye Jin goes paragliding and "crash landing," which ends up meeting the love of her life, Captain Ri. The scenery and the adventure in the hit romantic-comedy (and tearjerking!) series went viral because of its cinematic moments, such as Se-ri contemplating on a boat in the beautiful lake of Isetwald, the panorama bridge of Sigriswil, and taking photos of herself with the Swiss Alps in the background. There are just so many good memories of bringing us a place we can dream of. 

 

2. Guardian: The Lonely and Great God (Goblin) - maple trees of Canada

Many fans take pictures of the places actors Gong Yoo and Kim Go Eun filmed with in the hit drama. Canada will surely be one of the places to go and explore. The Korean series' film locations include Quebec, and they also shot parts of Château Frontenac, and strolled through Parc du Bastion-de-la-Reine (the goblin's family cemetery). The red door at Petit Champlain is also part of the list, as well as the onscreen couple's picnic with a view of the Fontaine de Tourny.

 

3. Encounter - Havana salsa in Cuba

Two individuals meet by chance in the drama "Encounter." Hence, the title. It was a life-changing experience for the characters of Song Hye Kyo and Park Bo Gum that made a good story as the first Korean series to film in Cuba. The cast and crew used locations with deep histories, like Havana's Malecon beach and the Hotel Nacional de Cuba. Cuba is popular with its lovely views and nostalgic buildings.

4. Vagabond - exciting cities of Morocco

Actors Lee Seung Gi and Bae Suzy did not explore more of the tourist spots in Morocco. The story tackles more suspense and brawls through espionage. The drama filmed in several locations like Portugal, Morocco, and Korea. Two of its episodes took place in a North African country. Suzy took a photo of herself in one of the alleys in Tangier, where most of the scenes were taken. 

5. Winter Sonata and more Korean dramas explore the beauty of South Korea

The hit Korean series starring Choi Ji Woo and Bae Yong Joon made a lot of people curious about what South Korea offers. And since then, fans have been visiting Korea to witness the "Land of Morning Calm" tourist spot.

Many would fly to Korea to check out the places where their favorite actors' filming locations took place for their dramas, and that eventually, they've come to love. This is one of the reasons why Nami Island became one of South Korea's most popular tourist attractions.

There are a lot of places to wander and put in your bucket list:

Can you guess where Soo-Bong is, there?

Or rather, what is the set location.

I always wish the manhwa had been for sale. The only time it was, was if you preordered the director's cut. When the director's cut was for sale later, it was not included. And it was never sold separately. :'(

9 Entertaining K-Dramas That Involve Multiple Worlds

9 Entertaining K-Dramas That Involve Multiple Worlds

4. “W

“W” is another hit K-drama that had viewers talking for months. The drama stars Lee Jong Suk as Kang Chul, a hardworking and poised millionaire, and Han Hyo Joo as Oh Yeon Joo, a resident cardiothoracic surgeon. The two characters land in each other’s lives in the most unexpected way, which leads to the collision of two worlds, the real world and the webtoon world, and the possibility of one of them completely collapsing.

Many dramas have been based on webtoons, but this is perhaps the first time a webtoon and its characters were specifically created to be literally brought to life. Comparing it with the real world, the webtoon world captured my attention as I found myself sympathizing with its inhabitants and secretly hoping for well-founded justice.

ing for well-founded justice.
