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.)

Actually, i kinda thought the first ep was boring alr!!
haha, what a waste, attention getting actors- i prefer painter of the wind infinitely.Plus I cant stick to many of the "famous" dramas so I am very picky.
Painter of the Wind to go!!

I love this drama, it very different from the other dramas that I have watched. I like the fact that the relationship between HB & SHK, is the most real I have seen in kdrama, there no "oh i'm scared to touch your hand, or kiss you on the lips". They kiss, hug and intereact like most of us do in the real world, so kudos for that.

I love this drama so far...really, really love it... i watched ep 7 already & i am still waiting for ep 8 to be subbed. if i am in korea i will watched this to boost the rating. i dont know why they dont like it. ive been watching so many dramas (korean, taiwan) for 1 year now...this drama simply one of the best for me...one of my top ten to watch (coffee prince, my girl, full house etc). i watch the recent dramas: love marriage ( it was ok for me but not highly recommended), beethoven virus (the ending my gosh, what kind of ending was that, i want to see the special maybe i will be satisfied), gourmet (so so, also not highly recommended). worlds within so far is good .The main leads are so cute & love their chemistry. their interaction with each other keeps me giggling like a teenager.
thanks scarlet 1013, my sentiments already. Everybody can have their own opinoin. thanks dramabeans if you dont like it, dont force yourself. I will keep on watching till the end...ill go back to your blog and tell you if i still like it till the last episode..
for those who like this series keep on watching.. let us be happy at least, for those who doesnt like this drama, dont watched.
Peace!!!!

i haven't watched this series yet. i think sometimes when i give up a series it was probably just me. i gave up on Alone In Love & My Girl, but then i gave them both another shot & i'm glad i did, usually it takes 2 to 6 episodes for me to figure out if i like it or not.

yours summaries of these dramas are really useful over time, cause i might watch something that was reviewed a year ago & its nice to read what others thought & things i might have missed or over looked. hopefully someone really enjoys this series & can volunteer to recap it.

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."

LOL.. i agree with ditto. please do not go crazy and bitter over this drama or any drama. i enjoy coming and reading your blogs a lot. this drama did interest me because of the leads but i was never interested enough to watch it and never paid much attention to the blogs for this drama either but i enjoyed reading this one. :D

post #30 sue,

i totally agree with you~

i actually am enjoying it... but yea i wonder when something actually is going to occur... i always finish watching an ep... and i dnt it always feels like we've been stuck in that spot for quite a while....

hrm.. also maybe its the plot- its just a little too laid back....

oh gosh i dnt exactly know what it is, but that SPARK of kdrama love has not lighted yet for me...-__- sadd cuz im really trying to fall in love with it (esp cuz of the cast!!!)

At first I was depending on the recaps to see whether I wanted to watch this. Now, I think I might be reading them just to find out what happens without committing myself to 16 hours. But that's pure selfishness on my part.

If you're not into the show, then you really shouldn't continue. I'll miss your analysis of the scenes, but I'd rather see you devote your time to a show that you enjoy.

I feel you.. this show's gotten kinda boring and I feel like it's going nowhere and I also feel like I'm watching daily drama series. Well, actually I've been getting the same vibe since the beginning. It seems to contain quite many cliches too. (I didn't expect to see yet another scene where a couple run in the rain with the guy holding his jacket over him and his girl friend in this drama.) I'll still keep watching it though cuz it shows different stories surrounding people making dramas.

Thanks for covering the first 5 episodes, but totally understand why you can´t be bothered to waste your time. I only started watching this because I was interested in the leads, but after the first episodes I couldn´t care less if they ended up together or not, cause it seemed like the most shocking thing would be if they didn´t. My credo: WW is 16 hours with lighthearted entertainment, nothing more, nothing less ;)

I like this drama and both main actors. I'm still watching WW w/ or w/o recap.

When I'm watching WW I don't get depress or too much in the "dream world-unreal" compare to others KDrama.

Thank you for your recap. I hope someone will kind enough to update us w/ the latest info. about this drama. I'm looking forward for that.

i'd rather read recaps by you javabeans because they are well written and often picks up a lot of things i missed while watching the episode. i'll continue to watch this drama as long as i could because with each episode I am loving Hyun Bin... he seems way hotter here from all his other dramas, he had me with his smile. cliche!

At least watch ep 9 & 10 no??
well I can totally understand ur point of view...
but I cant help but love this drama still...
its refreshing to see a male and female in a korean drama engaged in a realistic relationship... not the ones where it takes 5 episodes for love interests to hold hands for the first time then 5 more for the first kiss, then one of them dying...
they kiss, hold hands, have sex (although SHK was extremely awkward in acting that particular scene out) and that kind of relationship what Id rather see in a drama...

Actually the show is getting better. I agree that ep 6 is the weakest episode so far (wanted to give up watching as well), but things really picked up from ep 7 and I've just finished ep 10 (it gets A LOT better).

Worth a mention that there's a crying scene in ep 10 and SHG was pretty good there (a pleasant surprise after her bleh performance in the first few episodes). so peoplez you might just want to hang on yet.

aww. it's too sad.
i must admit there were times when i became bored of the series.. but i clinged to it because i find it interesting. the series has a new approach to dramas, living up to its goal which is to show everyone what PDs, actors and staff are undergoing behind what we hear and see in television. And to me, it really shows that even directors like JY and JO are capable to love, to kiss, to hug..just like normal couples do. :D

sigh. anyway, thanks for being once a supporter of the drama. i hope you'll give it another chance. :)

World's Within is one of the dramas with a very REAL touch of realism ... most of the viewers are always in to dramas with "fairy-tale-like" storylines... this drama is so much in difference.. well, i admit that it has some dull parts but in summation, it's a good drama... i think if you just continued watching it and deeply understood its every episode.. i think u'd be wanting for more..

the last episode was 50/50... it was great seeing SHG and HB being back together...their scene was terribly good but still, not really satisfying.. i want more of the happy scenes...
i love hyun bin's and song hye gyo's character being brought up together.. it's a fusion of two contrasting personalities but mingles perfectly...

I like spontaneous kiss between Hyoen Bin and Song Hae Gyo. That make this film so romantic and nice. Their act so wonderful

this is boring at its best, but i still managed to finish this. thanks to uhm kijoon and his character, oh also adorable assistant director (i forget her name xD) plus that snarky script-writer. and i love the whole setting about film directing! and i agree with [OMN], this story is without fairy tale glittery all over the place, and i love it.
