It may be their world, but I’m no longer with it

All right: After the third time trying to get through Episode 6, I think The World We Live In recaps are toast. Sorry, folks! I really thought I’d be able to stick it out, but a combination of not feeling the series, mixed with a general ennui, has convinced me that any recaps forthwith would be half-assed, and if there’s something I loathe, it’s half-assery.

It’s too bad, because I really, really enjoyed the first two episodes. I liked 3 & 4 a little less, but enough to continue. Alas, I liked 5 & 6 even less, and I don’t see this series picking up in a way that would re-engage me at this point. Some scenes are very well-written, but they come interspersed with some real snoozers.

If someone is interested in picking up the rest of the series, I’d be happy to post the recaps. But first, is that something you’d care for in the first place? (Multiple selections are enabled.)

i predicted this series will be a major flop.
even the person doing the recap gave up on this series.

i tried watching episode 1 and it was a total boredom already.
i enjoyed more LOVE and MARRIAGE over this one.
LAM was a bit more interesting than this one which is a copycat of ON AIR and SPOTLIGHT...

many actors/actresses doing their come back and many are disappointing.

well, I hope someone does the recap of this series because I really want that.
and I knew that many people won't be interested in the drama because people were expecting too much from this drama... they sat high standards for it and forgot to just watch and enjoy the drama as it is.
anyway, thanks javabeans for your effort in writing the recaps of the last episodes.

Sigh... I'm gonna miss your recap.
I've been visiting your blog several times a day waiting for your recap...

I enjoy watching this series so far. This is the only drama I watch online right now.

I never really got into the drama from the beginning, so I guess it doesn't really affect me. Thanks for your hard work thus far, anyway!

Ditto with whatever commenters 2 and 3 said. I agree that the drama, while interesting in some aspects, doesn't have an added zing to it. But I haven't totally given up yet and I enjoyed reading your recaps, javabeans. Thanks.

That's unfortunate because I thought World's Within had alot of potential... Dramabeans, you should save your time for something that you enjoy more.

this drama is such a bore. the two leads are stoic and obnoxious. the support cast is better but the storyline focuses too much on the two boring leads.

yeah you should just give up or else you'll go crazy and bitter.

i love this drama because of the leads and the refreshing change..
loved your recaps though.. gonna miss them! this is the only drama im watching currently.. gave up on east of eden when two of the main male actors spent 90238402 times going to jail.. -- and songseungheon's talent in my opinion is wasted here :( it would be awesome if you found someone to recap the world they live in.. but anyways thanks for for your recaps!
im super excited for general hospital 2, star's lover and boys over flowers.. hopefully youre interested in them too :D

I tried so hard to like this drama because of SHK but simply cannot get into it. I think a lot other people are also trying their damn hardest to feel this drama due to writer and PD combo but it's just not happening.

I think it's now quite clear why the ratings are so low in Korea: It's just not able to generate any interest, and worst of all, unable to _retain_ anyone who did give it a shot.

Gotta feel sorry for the Avex Group (Japanese company which bought the rights for 3 billion won), as they might soon figure out it will be incredibly difficult to get any returns on their investment.

The drama was somewhat interesting at first, but it quickly bored me. I tried hard to like it.

Sorry, this is off topic, but can you upload Toy - Christmas Card again? I tried the download link but it's not working for me..

No worries. As long as people keep subbing and uploading, I'll still be watching. It really is like a Soulmate number two. But maybe not as good. This has no cliches or usual drama scenarios.

No "incest", deathly disease, or ridiculous acting.

It's just a chill drama.
That's more mature I think.
With the swearing and sex scene.

It's just... calm.

Anyways. I'm still watching.
And because Hyunbin's a smexy beast.
I shall keep watching.

Thank you for the recaps up till now though.
I appreciate them!

Oh please keep continuing ur recap. I always check ur website several times per day just to catch some new recaps for this drama.
Since I don't understand a thing about what's going on in the drama since I only watched raw videos. But I think they are not that bad.
Even if it's someone else who recaps it, please continue this series

I actually love this series. It's so different from the usual drama storyline and pretty 'down-to-earth' kind of romance. I really hope someone would pick up and continues to recap.

I can't say I will miss your recaps on this. I didn't feel any sizzle between the leads and quickly lost interest. Oh well, onto the next one.

Hope you find something that knocks your socks off.

The japanese series Oh! My Girl! which is airing right now is kind of cute. Interested?

I think we all had high hopes--this was the pairing we always wanted!

Perhaps more than the actual drama, we really, really enjoyed your insightful recaps. Have you ever considered going to film school? Not sure if you'd need that to get a job as a film critic--you already have some reviews to put in your portfolio.

Thanks, Javabeans!

Thanks for all your hardwork in the past with the recaps. Always much appreciated.

I echo your sentiments. I am officially bored with The World We Live In. Everything seems to be just okay in the series, which makes it just an okay series. There's nothing that stands out for me, which makes it sort of blah.

I don't blame you! When i watch the drama, I fast forward through 90% of it. I'm just watching it because I like seeing the main characters interact. The storyline and the acting aren't the best, but I still think the pair are cute. But I'm sure you're busy, and it really isn't worth it to take the time to watch the episodes and recap the whole thing when overall, the drama pretty much lacking.

Thanks for all your recaps though!

looks like WW is not everyone's cup of tea. it's an "easy goin" kind of series that is refreshing amidst all the usual dramas - that's the reason why i'm sticking it out with this one.

To be honest Javabeans

If you're heart is no longer in it Javabeans, then I respect your choice. Personally, I enjoy the drama. The only troube I have is that it seems that the story is heading nowhere, but I am still going to watch it. It's the only drama I am currently watching right now. My favorite drama is Coffee Prince, but the drama that stole my heart is My lovely Sam Soon.The truth is unfortunately, I do not have the same passion for World Within than the other two dramas cited above. But I have to admit that World Within does not have the typical drama stuff: the guy is rich and stubborn, the girl is poor and sweet and somehow somebody always has cancer kind of thing. World Within I find it extremely refreshing and different!

So again if you do not want to recap it that's ok, cause if you still recap your heart won't be(the recap thing) in it cause you do not enjoy the drama! But I will still and always be loyal to Dramabeans regardless of this situation!

Ciao! I have to go to sleep it's school tomorrow!

Hi Javabeans,

I really really love your drama recaps, and particularly enjoyed your recaps of the drama 'My Last Scandal,' and although I haven't been following along with Song Hye Gyo and Hyun Bin's drama 'The World We Live In,' I was wondering if you happen to take requests for dramas, particularly daily dramas. I know that daily dramas are quite long and require a great deal of commitment, but there's one that I'm trying to follow now without subs that I'd be ecstatic if you could write about every now and then. It's a new drama with Lee Jung Jin called I Love You, Don't Cry. Thanks a lot!!

I follow your drama recaps too because you write so well, though I like the pace of World's Within right now, well you can't please anybody, but I hope you'll still consider doing it, even if another person will write it

ugh. *facepalm* I haven't made it past the beginning of ep4.. I too really got such good vibes from the first 2 eps, but its lacking a spark of life that all the other good things about this drama don't seem to be able to save. It's such a shame, because there honestly is a lot going for it, and I'm sure it'll be disappointing for the Worlds cast/crew as well as fans... To have so many people dropping out right at the start. =/ Personally I think if someone really loves it, they could pick up the recaps, because it may get better, and it would be good as something to keep an eye on for that reason. ^^ But honestly, as long as they're well written! There's so much to be understood here, that I think there's really only a point if a person's properly attuned to it all and can write it well.

Out of the other 3 dramas I'm watching online Worlds Within is the one I leave until last. I like the characters but ITA there does seem to be something lacking in the drama.

If you're not into it, then really, don't force yourself.

As I wasn't going to follow WW, the recaps don't really matter to me. I was always in it for the shiny writing skillz of Javabeans. ;D

Good luck to whoever picks it up (if there is someone)!

I have to admit that I am fighting my own feelings with respect to this drama. Since I don't understand Korean, I have to trust the translations. Reading it, every episode takes twice as long. Hyun Bin seemed quite good to me, while I was quite surprised how poor SHK's acting is during the first episodes, and my opinion is that she is geting better as the series continue. I cannot say whether I enjoy it or not for its own sake. I do follow the episodes. I am waiting for subs but it is really sad not to have javabeans' recaps.

I do agree that the expectations were so high that probably hardly any drama could meet it, so is it the actors fault? The scenario? I used to follow an Argentinian drama "Vidas Robadas"- the ratings were not the best, at some point there were even talks about cancelling the drama. However, it did last to its programmed end and I do think that it was one of the best TV products I had ever seen. (Had its own problems- for example, microphones that suddenly were seen in the frame :-) ), but the drama was really good. Maybe the series will have the same effect.

I will be waiting till the end to see if it gets better.

Javabeans, thanks for your hard work! I love your blog!

I don't think i've seen a series that really interests me since Who Are you?.
Which is totally why i need to watch Triple when it decides to come out....

I watched the first two episodes and I really wasn't really feeling anything from it. I think you should just leave it and wait for another series to start up to recap.....like when Boys Over Flower comes out..

If you are not going to do the recaps, then i'd rather not have it. Maybe you could do a summary of your thoughts on the drama after the last episode is aired.

So sad to hear that you are not following thru this drama... I love your recaps... and I often check your sites for the recaps of WW.

Well, I must agree that the drama has a different feel... And I think that the writer wanted to offer something different to all the viewers. And I guess the viewers are not yet ready for the change. Personally, I am rather bored with all the cliches that I watch in the past few months... that I stopped after a few episodes. WW is the first in a long time that got me hooked again in Kdramas.

So I am still watching Worlds Within... I love watching Hyun Bin & Song Hye Kyo together.. . Thank you for the hardwork Javabeans!

The way the story is developing is boring and uninteresting. The two main actors don't seem to do a good job in acting. There is just no attraction for me to keep watching this series as well.
