Comic book collections and dreamlike kisses in W–Two Worlds

It’s pretty cool to see the props for MBC’s new fantasy suspense drama W–Two Worlds, because they’ve had to create actual comic books that feature Lee Jong-seok as the hero, and then they’ve filled Han Hyo-joo’s room with them because she’s the fangirl who collects them all. (A comic book geek as drama heroine. I can die happy now.) The art looks great, and it’s just fun to see how much background work is going into creating the comic book universe, which will collide with reality in a major way when the hero quite literally walks off its pages and into real life.

The newest teaser opens with our surgeon heroine Han Hyo-joo finding out that her famous webtoon artist father (Kim Eui-sung) has suddenly vanished. It’s the mystery that brings her into the parallel universe of her favorite comic book, but when she saves a dying Lee Jong-seok and disappears just as suddenly as she came, he decides she holds the key to his life and starts searching for her.

Sometime later, she wakes up in his bed blurting, “I love you!” and he kisses her. In voiceover she says, “I’m someone who’s hoping for your happy ending.” But he’s deeply suspicious that she knows so much about him and wonders what her real deal is. She’s desperate to save him, but doesn’t know that Dad is frantically trying to kill off his leading character, for some unknown reason. She cries that she doesn’t know what comes next in the story, while Dad declares ominously: “Today’s will be the last episode.” Noooo, save him!

W–Two Worlds premieres next Wednesday, July 20.

I seriously think I must not follow this drama when it airs, after watching the trailer.
I will keep myself from teaser, preview, recap, open thread, etc...
Or else I will explode with curiosity of next episodes and expectation that keeps building up every week.
I must wait till it finishes.
I must.

The premise of this drama alone is blowing everything else right now out of the water, so much care was put in the little details and universe building.
The fact that they started shooting it relatively early is also reassuring, so I hope it doesn't disappoint.

I agree. The premise seems really unique compared to a lot of other things airing right now. I think it's because of the writer, but I'm biased because I loved Queen In-hyun's Man. I'm also crossing my fingers that it's good!

I really dislike MBC, I wanted this drama on tvN or at least the other two networks, but why MBC? Not promoting it aside ( the second best reply under this teaser is like MBC should give more publicity to this drama) but at least I hope they don't destroy this drama by their old-fashioned strategies... They are the only station among big 4 which hasn't risked to pre-produce even one drama... My God, I beg you!

Hello GS,

I just wanted to correct you that MBC has pre-produced dramas before. In fact, they were one of the first stations to try pre-producing dramas.

They did it way back in 1991 with the drama, Eyes of Dawn. They also pre-produced the 2009 drama, Friend, Our Legend with Hyun Bin. They also pre-produced the 2010 drama, Road No. 1 with So Ji-sub. I'm sure there are more dramas that were pre-produced by MBC, but these were the ones I knew.

The problem is that besides Eyes of Dawn, which was a huge hit with a peak of 58.4% ratings, the other two dramas I mentioned flopped hard in ratings, regardless of the quality of the shows, at least with Friend, Our Legend. Thus, pre-production of dramas never took off.

However, I do think this drama should have been pre-produced mainly because this type of story requires the production and directing to be tight for it to work. Hopefully, they will be able to succeed because the premise has potential to be good.

Hello dear Dopefish :-)

Oh, I didn't know that, thank you so much for correcting me :-)

Actually I'm a little disappointed that they don't publicize this drama to the point that I feel its rating will be like Beautiful Minds despite its quality & good reviews, because its promotion is as much as BM... I try to don't care about it anymore...

But you are definitely right, thank you for your information & sorry for my lack of them.

Damn TvN could have reunited this writer with the PD of Nine... The possibilities! And if MBC had pre-produced it at least then we would be sure they wouldn't screw it up half way through.

That definitely would have been the best thing to happen, especially since this is probably my favorite premise from this writer. But I'm taking it as a good sign that this director is attached to some of the few MBC dramas I've loved (King 2 Hearts, Arang & the Magistrate) and that this drama is 50% pre-produced.

AHHHHHHHHH. I'm losing it while waiting for this.

I actually didn't have much of an opinion on the pairing because I was so busy being excited for the premise, but the anticipation is starting to build for the romance here. I'm really liking what I'm seeing of the leads in these characters.

I'm wondering whether the father disappeared because he 'drew' himself into the manhwa so he could take care of LJS himself? I love that I'm already feeling compelled to try and figure everything out!

Yeah for a heroine who is a doctor and yet NOT a geeeenius and for a hero who IS a geeeeenius... because he is a fiction character.
Well, Korean dramas are becoming more realistic, aren't they?
:D
(I am so so so looking forward to this drama)
And I'm waiting for the day when the heroine is THE geeeeenius of the story (preferably in a scientific area) while the hero is just the lovely guy next door type (unless this drama already happened ? anyone ?)

Mrs. Temper and Nam Jung Gil is kinda like that, but not particularly advertised as such.
Oh, a legit one would be the mini series Page Turner the female lead is a geeeeenius pianist, while the male lead is the big-hearted dummy.

Required fields are marked *

The female lead in Ms Temper was very good at her job, but I think that is one step below geeeeeenius (as compared, for instance, with Seo In-guk's character in I Remember You). Nae-il in the Korean version of Nodame Cantabile might qualify perhaps, since she was a geeenius pianist; but then, the male character was even geeeniuser, and most of the drama revolved around him.

I haven't seen Page Turner yet; I will get to it :-) . So far, I am still dying to see a drama where the female lead is not only a geeenius (as opposed to just competent at her job), but acknowledged as such by other characters, and not bested by the male lead.

I feel like flying!! :))) so So Sooooo love Lee Jong Suk.???? ❤❤Why is the plot of this drama is so good?? I already feel addicted and can imagine myself sitting on the edge of chair in near future. I am 99% sure this drama will NOT disappoint me. I wish it would air in SBS.
But it doesnt matter because this writer is very good and I have watched her previous works and I believe in her. ☺ ??
How I wish my other biases (Lee Min Ho) would have played in dramas like this one instead of "Heirs". ???
Lee Jong Suk always chooses exciting dramas. Never choose mediocre roles. Kudos!!???

I am probably going to get all drained from emotion again that feels like I lost a liter of blood. LJS sure does pick the angstiest dramas ever. the good thing is he is fantasy inside fantasy...so it doesnt have the "realness" of his other characters... on the other hand, it is the fantasy characters who make my empathy explode.

HHJ is a noona for LJS, isn't she? Their chemistry could be like LJS-LBY in I Hear Your Voice.
